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

This was so wonderful. My daughter loved every minute! The sloth was actively eating and moving around. The animal guide was so good with the sloth and the kids. She was very knowledgeable and friendly. Fantastic value! We will be back!
Was very pleasantly surprised by our visit! Came to have a sloth encounter and was amazed by all the other animals we saw who were very active and interactive. Has the lunch with Crusher which at first was scary but the trainers made us feel very safe and found out loads of information. Absoloutly loved it definitely recommend!
We had an amazing time and really enjoyed our morning
Fabulous interaction with the sloth, knowledgeable staff and wonderful park!
Our sloth tour had 13 people on it. Felt we didn’t get as much time
We loved Wild Florida! Loved getting up close with the animals. Staff members were very nice and knowledgeable!
Lisa was very excited to meet Guy and left there wanting to spend more time with him. We will visit again and maybe do VIP wit Her Sloth.. The Alligators were awesome to feed. Great time..
The handler was very friendly and knowledgeable and we had a great time getting up close with Aerie!
My son and I loved this experience. The guide was very knowledgable about sloths. She cared about Gus and it was amazing to see her interact with him.
We went a couple years back for the first time and really enjoyed it. Wild Florida has really expanded since then, and we love it! From the huge animal sanctuary that backs up to the water where they do airboat rides to walking on the piers feeding the gators snacks, this place is a wonderful place to spend the afternoon. My favorite part is how much emphasis they put on educating the public about the animals. They don’t exploit them like a lot of those other places. All the alligators they have there were labeled nuisance alligators (no fear of humans) and would have been shot had the sanctuary not taken them in.
It was amazing!
We had a great time! It was great getting up close and personal with the Slough Arie!
We had an amazing day at Wild Florida! My little sloth lover got to get up close and personal with a very sweet sloth named, Aerie. Since we live in Alaska, we don’t see gators everyday. Watching them eat was quite an experience. The staff was knowledgeable, kind and devoted to caring for the animals who live in the park. It was one of the best days we spent in Florida.
Top notch experience and so much more than we expected. Sloth encounter was amazing, interaction was great and education was spot-on! Thank you so much for the experience of a lifetime!
This was a great experience. We were given ample time with the sloth to take photos and pet her. There was no rush, questions were welcomed and answered. The cost included admission to the park, so we also were able to see the variety of other lovely creatures. Great experience and I would recommend to anyone.
The staff was great!
My daughter was very happy with her experience. She learned more about sloths, and was able to have a positive interaction with the sloth and her handler.
The sloth encounter was very enjoyable and educational. It was just as I'd hoped it would be. The young woman handling the sweet Sloth was very gentle and knowledgeable, and made sure that all of us got to get as many selfies/pics as we wanted!
Our family had an amazing time! My daughter is in love with sloths and had a dream come true getting to see the baby sloth and then doing the sloth encounter and actually getting to meet and touch one-definitely worth every penny. The airboat ride was fun, the petting zoo and bird encounter was incredible, and not to mention the alligators! A beautiful place and a great time for all. Would definitely recommend!
The employees were very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The facilities were clean and animal friendly. Nice area to eat with delicious food. Great experience!
We had the best time seeing the sloth! We got a lot more time than expected. Being able to touch a sloth was my daughters dream. Dream fulfilled. Definitely worth every penny. The facility is amazing, people are so nice. The little petting zoo is great. So many different animals to see.
Wonderful experience, friendly staff, and super cute sloth! Such an amazing opportunity to be up close and personal with a sloth.
My daughter was thrilled to get to go inside the sloth cage and pet the sloth while it snacked. Thank you for the opportunity!
Not only was the park extremely informational, but after 20 years of loving sloths o was finally able to meet and pet a sloth. It was above and beyond anything I could have ever wanted. Plus, I’m a big advocate for animal rights, and the fact that Wild Florida takes in all of the nuisance alligators is wonderful and super amazing.
The animals were very well cared for & zookeeper Megan was amazing with our sloth and lemur encounters! She was super nice and informative and even took pictures for us.
We had a fantastic time and the staff was so very friendly and knowledgeable! I felt it to be a wonderful value with our Florida resident discount.
Megan the trainer was so sweet and informative. My 12 & 10 year old daughters love animals and she was so great they LOVED their experience. Thank you again!! It was so worth the money and time.
