It was absolutely amazing , even though it rained we still enjoyed ourself for the first time ever ! staff is very friendly and patience! I would recommend this zoo to everyone ! I wish the widlife florida was closer to home ! Thank you for everything guys , from the Aiken SC sloth vips!
$200 was alot to share the experience with 2 other people ( would have been 3 others but there was a no show). I think two per time slot would give fair time to the participants. The girl who was our guide, wish I remembered her name, was fabulous though. She was friendly and informative.
Great staff and animals! We had an amazing time!
Aries was great, and the insteuctor was very knowledgeable
It was an amazing experience. I highly recommend Wild Florida!
It was very worth the money. Such a great experience learned lots. A very nice place.
Very professional, punctual, and all around fantastic!
This was my second time visiting Airy! She’s the best sloth there ever was :) wild Florida is amazing!!!
Awesome and informative sloth interaction; not rushed (as if you could rush a sloth!). Employees were awesome; great day!
I purchased this experience as a gift for my daughter. She absolutely loved this once in a lifetime experience of holding and interacting with such an interesting a gentle creature. If anyone is looking for an experience to make lasting memories, I very much recommend this. All the staff we interacted with throughout the day were very pleasant and took time to answer any questions we had. Too, I enjoyed the diversity in unique animals we were able to see and learn about. I will be back for a return visit!
Staff was super friendly, the animals were kept in really great conditions, price for admission was great for what you get to see especially if you are a Florida resident! Me and my family will come back a lot for sure.
I have never enjoyed a day so much in such long time the experience with the sloth was just to great for words the trainer was absolutely wonderful...I have a very special place in my heart for animals like this I just wish that I had grown up in an area that had the opportunity to work with such animals...and I truly enjoyed the rest of the park it was not so over crowded that you were stumbling over each other.it was a very pleasant and peaceful time...My husband and I will be back...Thank you for giving me such a wonderful memory Cathy Emanuel
BEST day EVER!!
The girl that led the experience was great! She was knowledgeable and had a passion for the animals that was undeniable.
My son had a great time!
The entire experience was super fun and enjoyable, the staff was nice and helpful and meeting a sloth was a dream come true. :)
Staff member was very knowledgeable and able to answer any questions we had during our VIP sloth encounter. Our daughter was able to hold, feed and learn about the sloths for a considerable amount of time. She exclaimed this was the “best day ever!” The rest of Wild Florida’s animals were just as fun too. The grounds were well kept and there was an abundance amount of shade (much needed in the the state of Florida). The concession stand was well stocked and the food was good. Wild Florida is a gem. We will return.
The VIP Sloth Experience was awesome!
This was everything and more than I expected for my daughter's Birthday and Christmas gift! The VIP Sloth experience was amazing! All your team members were kind and enthusiastic ! Thank you, Karlo J. Lawlor
I loved this experience. I would've liked to have a little longer with the sloth, but overall we were more than satisfied.
I met, held, fed, and had photo-ops with my spirit animal -- the sloth!
This was a very clean facility. The staff was excellent and very friendly.
This was my second VIP sloth experience. Even though we got to hold the sloth a little bit longer this 5ime, I felt the educational experience was much better in June. The person running it this time, did not come forth with nearly as much enthusiasm and information as the 1st time. Also, in June, the person in charge took many excellent pictures with my cell phone, and we also fed the sloth a grape ourselves at the end. Neither of these things happened this time.
Wonderful experience keeper was brilliant and very knowledgable. And friendly couldn’t be more satisfied with the experience . A big tick on my bucket list ty
While I did not personally get to experience holding a sloth, my friend told me it was the best experience of her life.
Wonderful experience for my daughter
The VIP Sloth experience was a present for my daughter. She had the most amazing time!!!! I have to also mention that Wild Florida is a fantastic place to visit, from the beautiful animals to the wonderful Staff. We will definately visit again on our next trip to Florida.
My granddaughter and I had a very delightful day. Thank you so much
This has been on my bucket list for a long time and was every bit as thrilling as I hoped it would be.
We had a wonderful day at wild florida and the sloth interaction was brilliant, plenty of time and not rushed. We also had a good look round at the other exhibits and also an airbag ride. Brilliant day out.
Our sloth guide was super friendly and helpful. She walked us through everything easily and answered any and all questions we had. We each got about 5 minutes holding the sloth while it slept/ate, so there was plenty of time to get pictures in. Really awesome and fun experience. Would definitely do it again! I just loved them so much!
Incredible experience. Very educational
This was an amazing experience! There were so many different animals, which all had their own personalized exhibits. We got to meet a two-toed slothette! She likes grapes and corn-on-the-cob!
As a sloth lover, this experience was amazing. I got to spend a good 10 minutes cuddling the sloth Arrie and watching it. You could take as many photos as you liked including slothies. It was great value for money, no one else offers this experience anywhere else. The staff were very knowledgeable and accepted any questions you had. It was really intimate and well organised.
Beautiful park! Friendly and knowledgeable staff. The animal experiences are truly amazing.
Fantastic surprise for a co-workers anniversary at our company. She was in shock and got a little misty eyed when they brought out the adorable sloth. A+
Loved it! It was very informative yet laid back. The family had a blast taking turns holding a sloth. Wish it was longer. My 12 year old would have stayed there all day!
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
