Very welcoming place! Friendly atmosphere!! Very informational!! Would recommend to anyone!!
I absolutely loved it. It was like meeting my hero or favorite movie star. Guy is the cutest guy around!
Ample time with the sloth, staff were very helpful and polite. All in all a great experience!
We got exactly what was stated we would get with the Sloth Encounter. The handler allowed us to take as many pictures and “slothies” that we wanted and made sure everyone, including the animals, stayed safe and happy!
We loved this experience & the sloths was the BEST!! One checked item off of my bucket list, thanks for a great day!!
It was part of my daughter's 16th birthday present. She was so happy and we had a Good time
Wow, so cool to be up close and personal with a sloth. The staff person (sorry, forgot her name) provided lots of intetesting information and was so patient with people and Guy the sloth. Loved it!
It was so nice to be able to get up close and personal with our favorite wild animal!!
Great experience for my 8 year old daughter who loves sloths. We had plenty of time to pet the sloth, take lots of pictures and ask questions. The staff member was very nice and well informed. We will definitely do this again someday.
Great morning out, throroughly enjoyed the sloth encounter. Would definitely recommend to others.
This was a birthday present for my son, which he loved. Staff were great, got some great hoots 1:1 with the sloth. Thoroughly recommended.
I brought my wife here for her birthday because she always wanted to pet a sloth. We had THE BEST TIME. Not just the sloth encounter but the entire park.vits clean, people are friendly, and all around fun. We will be back many times, I guarantee it.
The encounter was more than I expected. We were able to get up close and personal with the sloth. There was ample time for photos for all parties and I could not have been more please. The guides were very knowledgeable and informative. The park was well kept and clean and all the animals seen happy. Definitely would recommend this tour. Thanks for a great time!!!
Amazing visit great staff loved it!
What an awesome spot! The weather was perfect and the accommodations were more than satisfying. I HAD an AMAZING time with Ari the sloth. The trainer was friendly and knowledgeable. She explained how we could interact with her (Ari) and then let us do our thing. Ari was soft and gentle and was very patient with our interactions. The trainer never rushed us though or made us feel like this was short and quick experience. She was kind and patient and offered us details about sloths and other fun facts. I HIGHLY recommend anyone who is interested in interacting with these amazing creatures to check out the sloth encounter. It was well worth the time and money!
The sloth encounter was wonderful the handler was so nice and friendly plus knew everything about the sloth . Loved the funny pictures we took with Fluffy. Everyone was was friendly and helpful . Plus the hot dog was delicious . I would recommend you to everyone that is visiting the area. Hope to come back soon.
The Sloth Encounter was booked as a surprise for my son and daughter. They both thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The lady that was running the encounter was very knowledgeable and friendly.
The employees were very friendly and knowledgeable. All of the animals were beautiful and well cared for. We will definitely be back.
My family enjoyed the whole park overall. The staff was great! They were kind, helpful, and full of smiles. We got the last sloth encounter for the day but the sloth did not want to participate. Our guide told us that they do not force their animals to participate if they are not willing, and we completely respected that. She gave us the option to get a refund or participate in another animal encounter. We did not want a refund, so we quickly decided another encounter. The transaction was smooth and quick in accommodating us with another encounter. The lady working the picture booth was fantastic and the lady working the ice cream window was the sweetest most positive person. Overall we truly enjoyed feeding the birds and interacting with the lemurs and ant eaters!!
The experience was awesome. The staff member, I believe her name was Kaitlyn, I’m sorry I can’t remember, but she was knowledgeable and very courteous. Plus Airy the Sloth was very sweet and fun.
The staff was great... we got stuck on the Florida turnpike and our 39 min drive turned into 1.5 hours.. we unfortunately missed our VIP experience but a call and the were able to get my son in the regular experience and refunded his money he had saved to pay for the VIP.. very satisfied... we enjoyed everything!
Great up close encounter, with very knowledgeable guide
Loved it here. The trainers were very informative!
The Sloth encounter was amazing. Would absolutely visit again!
Wow! What an amazing experience we had with the sloth encounter. My daughter had looked forward to this for a year and she loved it. So much time to take some lovely photos, and watch a sloth close up. It was the best day of our holiday. All the staff were so knowledgable and friendly - we had a great time and created treasured memories. Thank you so much!
The animal encounter with the sloth was everything I expected it to be we had a wonderful time and my niece was extremely thrilled. The young lady that presented the sloth information was wonderful she did a fantastic job
brilliant - our 8yo was thrilled. great visit, would highly recommend. xx
Great exhibits, friendly staff, reasonable price
I loved the sloth and the air boat amazing time
Great, friendly staff. The 40 min airboat ride was great fun and informative, not just blasting around. Sloth experience for my wife was excellent, helped because it was relatively quiet ( 2 people on the booking).
We loved meeting Guy the sloth. He and his companions seemed to be well cared for, and our guide for the encounter was informative and friendly.
