One of a kind experience. Staff was super friendly and polite. Grounds were clean. Animals looked happy and clean.
I brought my girlfriend here for her birthday because she loves sloths, so I wanted to get her the VIP sloth encounter so that she could get to hold a sloth for the first time. I called before I purchased the tickets and asked if we were allowed to bring our 2 young children. They said that they were not allowed in the encounter, but they failed to let me know that they could've watched the whole thing from right outside the encounter. I would've only purchased one ticket if I had known that I could've watched her the whole time in the encounter from right outside with our children. It was a very great experience but it was for her and not me and that would've saved me $200.
All I have to say is amazing things about this place. It was a great experience with wonderful people who work their. Unlike other places where you feel unimportant. This place made you feel important and that they actually cared. I was able to have conversations with multiple people and learn about their past and the companies past. They really make you feel at home. For the sloth experience. It was all smiles and laughs all around the keeper was very kind and funny and even though the sloth gave her a hard time at first. She pushed through and made the experience that much more by sharing her knowledge and experiences. I will be sharing this experience with everyone I know and will tell them that this has to be a stop when coming to Florida! I plan on coming back if not soon then when they have expanded the land. Highly recommend doing an encounter and a boat ride. All of it was the highlight of my short Vacation! Thank you so much Wild Florida!
Our sloth did not want to come and interact initially. After several minutes of bribery, she eventually did and was wonderful. We were all given an ample amount of time to hold Aerie, feed her, and take lots of #slothies. The park was not crowded at all. My husband and I were the only 2 people that showed up for an animal show and as a result, were given our own personal meet and greet with some interesting animals. The park is not large, but it is really well kept and charming. My only complaint is that the cost difference between a regular sloth encounter and the VIP encounter is substantial.
The experience was absolutely phenomenal! The ranger that was helping us out was friendly, informative, and very kind. Not only were the sloths remarkable, but the other animals were really cool too. I would definitely say this is one of the best zoos I've ever been too! :)
Hugging a sloth was a bucket list item for both my friend Misty and me, but I never dreamed that opportunity would present itself right in our backyard. Aerie was so sweet and wonderful. She allowed us to hold her as she ate her corn and then settled in for a nap. Thank you so much for the good work you do in taking care of these beautiful animals and making dreams come true.
The vip sloth experience was amazing I love sloths so definitely was worth, the Park is well kept and animals are well cared for. The airboat right was def worth not badly priced either. The people are very nice and organized overall great time I definitely want to come back
Professional, clean and fantastic
The VIP sloth experience was a dream come true! The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. First time visiting this hidden gem and it won't be the last.
The park is absolutely amazing. Up close and personal with all of the animals. The staff is welcoming and extremely helpful. Added an airboat tour last minute and it was the highlight of our visit. If you come to Fl you have to make Wild Florida a must see.
Amazing experience! Friendly staff and beautiful animals!
You can tell they care about the animals. All of the enclosures were very clean and most of the animals seemed happy. The sloth encounter was awesome!
It was a wonderful experience and the staff were friendly and knowledgeable.
It was awesome to hold Ari on my lap! I’m from belgium and it is not possible in my land to do this. I Will never forget it
This was literally the most amazing experience. It is worth every penny. I flew with my mom and dad from Illinois just for this. I believe the woman who guided us through the experience was Desiree and she was awesome. So knowledgeable and so sweet. When we got there and checked in the person who took care of us was Sarah and again just amazing. I have told everybody about Wild Florida since we left. It was just a great experience from beginning to end. The park was cleaner then any zoo I’ve ever been to and you can just tell that the animals that live there are so loved and cared for. We will definitely be back. Thank you again for such an amazing experience.
This was absolutely amazing. This is the only place anywhere near us we could actually hold a sloth. My wife to be has a bucket list, this was number one. It was so special to me that the staff took such incredible care of us. It was the happiest we have been, my girl getting to wrap her arms around a sloth while I watched one of her dreams come true. Thank you for a wonderful experience, it will never be forgotten.
I love the experience is a more intimate setting instead of a large crowd. Your handler was extremely knowledgeable and very accommodating. Thank you for allowing “us” the general public this rare opportunity to handle these delicate and sweet animals. Will definitely recommend your park to others who are seeking a more hands on experience!
My child’s dream came true.
The VIap sloth experience was truly amazing. We then walked around and looked at all the animals. The animals are beautiful and you can tell are well kept. Their enclosures are very nice and clean. You can also tell the staff love their animals and appear to really enjoy their jobs. Everyone was very friendly! It was also awesome to see how nature has been undisturbed. We can't wait to go back!
The sloth was super sweet and my dream literally came true holding her, the woman who was directing the experience was an absolute sweetheart and so patient and helpful in answering our questions.. 10/10 recommendation for this experience from me! I plan on doing this every year for my birthday ! AMAZING!!!!
I bought it as a surprise birthday present for my best friend. She loved it!! It was such a great experience for her. You get A LOT of time with the sloth. There is only 1 thing that I would suggest. If they had an option for maybe 50 dollars, in which I could have gone in the enclosure with her JUST to take pictures for her that would have been awesome. I know that the handler used her phone to take photos of her but cell phone quality is not good if you want to blow it up into a larger size.
This experience was awesome much more than I expected I love Sloths and this was an experience I will not forget if you love sloths as much as I do I would highly recommend this experience
Great experience the VIP sloth encounter was a dream of mine thank you for letting me do that
The VIP sloth experience was amazing! The animals were very healthy and well cared for and Megan, the trainer, did a wonderful job!!!
This was a gift for my daughter's college graduation. She is infatuated with the sloth, so to be able to handle one was definitely a bucket list treat! Thankfully there were only 2 other women signed up for the same time, so they were each given a good amount of time to hold Airy. The guide was very kind and informative, plus answered all the extra questions those of us on the outside of the cage had. We were able to take a lot of pics, and have great memories of a very fun time! The whole place was amazing! and everyone was so kind!
It is a once in a lifetime experience that you can't wait to do it again. The trainers were an integral part of making it so special.
Ive been to several places like this abd found the animals not cared for. These guys at your place seem well cared for and staff knowledgeable
My daughter loved it. She had ample time with Arie. The sloth handler was very knowledgeable and informative. The Park was so nice and was a very pleasant surprise. We will be back! Oh and it was nice to know that some of the cost of the VIP experience go back to helping the animals and wildlife conservation.
Omg this was the best birthday present ever!!!! The only place in the US that you can actually hold a sloth- the zookeeper was so knowledgeable and i got about 20 minutes to hold her and pet her- it was an experience that I will never forget- thank u so much!!!
The cleanest most inviting place. I learned a lot and everyone was so helpful.
My daughter is a Sloth expert, she is all about everything Sloth! This experience made her VERY happy, she loved actually being able to hold her favorite thing on earth! The staff was very knowledgeable and made sure each person in the VIP experience was treated well and had all the opportunities to ask questions and hold the animal. We are very glad we made the trip just for this activity! No Mouse for our family, Sloth all the way!
We loved the VIP Sloth Experience!!! It was a once in a lifetime experience that we will never forget. The staff was very knowledgeable and seemed to really care for the animals which is nice to see. We did many of the tours while we were there and it was a great time. We plan on going back the next time we are in Florida. Thank you for a memorial trip.
This was the best! I have always wanted to see a sloth but to be able to hold and feed it was the best! The place was very clean and the animals looked healthy. I have no complaints!
Staff was very informative and this experience was unforgettable. I would highly recommend visiting Wild Florida Tours!!!!!
Made my daughters' day!! She just loves sloths and to be able to hold and touch one was priceless
Staff was very pleasant and my Sloth encounter was just what I was looking for. Wish I could have seen the baby sloth.
