We loved your park! It wasn't over crowded or over priced. The sloth encounter is something I will always remember and always recommend!
I loved meeting arie!!!! She was so sweet
Staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. While I wish the sloth encounter was a little longer, where else can you get to pet/feed a sloth? Exhibits were fun and clean, and will definitely be back!
It was a wonderful experience. The trainers were so nice and knowledgeable. They added to what was already great. The whole day was fantastic. Price was very reasonable for the fun that we all had.
Loved this experience, especially the slothie. Guide was very knowledgeable.
it has been my lifelong dream to meet a sloth! and I got to. I can't afford the VIP so I was just as happy petting and giving love. It was BEYOND hot on Saturday but everyone was so nice there! I told a few when I retire from OPD in 4 years I want to come work out there. I had said my dream would be to work with animals, and then I got to visit your park! so now? I want to work there lol Thank you for everything! truly! I WILL be back! I just need it to cool down a little outside. Such a great place.
The encounter was awesome! Guy is such a little cutie and our encounter guide was super informative, I believe her name was Kayla!
The animal handler was very knowledgeable and helpful in is greeting a great experience with the sloth, and great pictures
I was amazed to see more animals at Wild Florida, and the interaction with the sloths as well as birds was unforgettable. I will definitely go for Sloth Encounter again.
Then sloth encounter was amazing! The staff was so helpful and friendly! Definitely will come back here again.
Love the place
Its was an amazing experience. I will definitely come back next time I'm in florida.
The encounter was longer than expected, and everyone got plenty of chances for up-close pictures and one-on-one time with the sloth! It helps that she was in a good mood and didn't mind being petted, too!
Meeting the Sloth was lovely, but I felt the group for the encounter was too big and as a result we go to spend less then 5 minutes with the Sloth each, and the experience felt very rushed and somewhat not worth the money.
Animas well cared for, looked healthy. Very scenic grounds and the sloth encounter was well worth it. The enclosures are close to the trail so you can see the animals up close, unlike a zoo.
Wild Florida made a dream come true... I was not able to hold the sloth but just being able to pet her and have the one on one encounter for myself and my kids was amazing!!!!
It was a great up close encounter. Megan, the handler was very knowledgeable and friendly.
Wild Florida provided great information upon arrival to the park. Unbeknownst to me, the sloth encounter included admission to the rest of the park which was very organized and clean. The exhibits were very interesting and provided a lot of hands on experiences. As for the actual sloth encounter, I couldn't have asked for a better experience! My girlfriend has a fascination with them and I booked this as a surprise. While it's marketed as an experience with up to 8 people, we were extremely pleased to find out we would be the only two guests with Guy, the sloth! We interacted with the animal one on one as it was fed and the keeper provided a wealth of knowledge about sloths. This made our day, but I was unaware of all they had to offer and will definitely be visiting in the future to take advantage of all the additional activities!
I love sloths, I got to meet one and it was awesome! I also got to see many more animals I didn't even know I was able to. I loved the gift shop also, they had a variety of things (especially sloth stuff :)
It was such an enriching experience and one I’ve dreamt of for years
We thought we would get more interaction. It was fun petting it, but we thought we would hold it.
This was a wonderful experience! My friend and I did the sloth, lemur and porcupine encounter today and they were all amazing!! The handlers were super informative and patient! And took lots of great pictures for us. The grounds in the park were extremely neat and clean. Loved walking around and noticing new treats and toys in the enclosures as the day went on. The gator show was lively! The exotic animal show could’ve done with more then 3 animals.... but it was informative. Hopefully as the park grows so will the show. The encounters are so worth the money and time. We loved them! For the lemur and porcupine we were the only two who signed up. (People! Sign up and do it! It’s a wonderful experience!!) Our guides were so wonderful in answering our questions and helping us to enjoy every second!!!
Very fun and informative!! Had such a great time . Thank you !

The guide who took us into the enclosure was very friendly, informative, and made sure we all had equal time with the sloth. She did not rush us and allowed each of quality time to experience the sloth. I would highly recommend the sloth encounter.
We had a great time! Loved the sloth adventure and the other different animals there, including Fluffy! Would definitely recommend!
Was able to pet the sloth. Good information given by keeper.
The entire atmosphere at Wild Florida was inviting! Helpful staff, clean grounds and a sense of peace and openness abound.
My granddaughter and I did the sloth experience to celebrate her 9th birthday! She loves sloths and said it was her dream come true to be up close and personal with a sloth. It was truly amazing!
It wa very informational and definitely being able to take pictures with the sloth and pet him briefly was a highlight of my Orlando trip!!
There were about 8 people in the sloth encounter that I went to. We met the most beautiful sweet sloth who was lured out of his bed with mango and proceeded to eat a corn on the cob while we all went up one at a time then in groups to stroke him. The lady keeper was extremely knowledgeable and no-one felt rushed at all - everyone took loads of pics and it was a very memorable experience!
My daughter and I love meeting Aries the sloth up close!! What a special moment!!!
I found the sloth encounter a great experience. I enjoyed the park as a whole but was slightly let down by the limited Acces for wheelchairs as the ground is particularly hard to get around on particularly the rough gravel. There was no signage to indicate where the accessible bathrooms where or how to acces them and the only bathroom I used by the main shop was inadequate. The park was otherwise a great time out for the family.
THE STAFF WAS AWESOME! HE WAS VERY PATIENT WITH THE GROUP, VERY INFORMATIVE, WAS ABLE TO ANSWER ALL QUESTIONS THAT WERE ASKED.
Wonderful experience, our encounter guide was awesome and very knowledgeable
