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.
Loved it. Greatest thing ever. I couldn't stop smiling
The VIP sloth experience exceeded my expectations! The zookeeper was super friendly and knowledgeable. The sloth was so cute and I got to hold her longer than I anticipated! Such a cool experience! I would highly recommend and I would definitely do it again! Thanks for a great time!
Had a great time. Purchased the 1/2 day adventure for all 5 of us and was astounded about what we got for the price. I also was given the first responders discount. Our whole experience was awesome, staff was great...we all loved it and will definitely return.
You guys and gals are absolutely amazing and we had a fantastic time and cannot wait till we are able to come back again... thank you all very much
I loved it Sloths are my favorite animal. And this was amazing To be able hold her and feed her. Well worth the $ and all of your animals at the grounds are Amazing Thank you for the opportunity
It was an awesome experience! Price a little high but worth it and proceeds go to good cause. Staff was personable and made our visit even more enjoyable.
This experience fulfilled my bucket list dream of holding a sloth. Our guide was super knowledgeable about sloths and she made the whole experience so much fun. Thank you for providing such a wonderful opportunity. I can’t wait to come back!
Great encounter, friendly informative staff. Airie the sloth wasn’t forced to participate but she enjoyed it too
The sloth vip experience was amazing! The only thing I would suggest is removing the part on the discription where it says you get to feed the sloth too. I asked if she could feed her and was told no. Which is fine but it’s still something you think you are paying for. But it really was awesome and the handler was very knowledgeable and nice. Worth every penny.
This was for my granddaughter, who loves sloths. The keeper was very knowledgeable and friendly. We all had a great time at the park.
The experience was amazing and the staff was awesome!
It was an amazing experience. I loved every second of it. And I learned more about sloths here at Wild Florida, but about sloths in general. What an incredible experience. I've been smiling ever since. I loved Wild Florida after my first sloth encounter (feeding), but watching this group help out Texas after the floods, and Florida after the hurricanes ... these are wonderful people!!!
I was so excited to see aerie! The space was large and we jumped right in to meeting her. Our trainer that brought her in was very knowledgeable and very personable. Thank you an amazing experience
I got to hold a sloth! How could I not be satisfied?! Our guide didn't make us feel rushed and answered all of our questions. I would love to do it again, but it is pricey even though it was totally worth it. Maybe an option to interact with Aerie without visiting the rest of the park?
We did the VIP sloth encounter. It was amazing being able to hold a sloth, something that really isn't offered anywhere. I also love Wild Florida, it's not over crowded, the enclosures are always clean and it gives you a chance to really appreciate all the animals without trying to see over 50 heads. I've been to Wild Florida 5xs now , doing the sloth animal encounter and every time has been amazing. Actually getting to hold a sloth this time, was one of my happiest times, hands down!!
thank you for the opportunity with Arrie the sloth, the staff was very friendly!
It was amazing to be this close to a sloth.
The park is very nice, clean, and inviting. The staff was super friendly and helpful. My wife loved getting to meet and hold Aerie the sloth. I would recommend the VIP encounter to everyone! Thank you Wild Florida for a great morning adventure, I only wish we had time to explore more of the park and enjoy and air boat tour, maybe next time.
Kissing the face of a sloth has been on my bucket list for the longest time. This experience allowed my to hold and kiss this gentle little creature. A very hands on, personal and rewarding experience.
This was a wonderful experience. The park itself is also wonderful. This made our trip to South Florida well worth it.
This was a gift for my daughter - the park staff were all wonderful and friendly and the keeper was extremely knowledgeable. This was s lovely experience and to quote my daughter “ the best day of my life!”
We really had a great time on our Private Airboat ride! Captain Jeff was so awesome! We saw a lot of gators up close and many beautiful birds! We will definitely be back next time we are in Florida!
I paid for my daughter to hold the older sloth that will wrap its arms around you. So I took the day off work and took her out of school and we drove an hour to get there early in the morning, only to find out that sloth was not available (off campus with one of the other caretakers). She was offered to 'hold' the baby sloth, which really meant holding the stuffed animal that the baby was holding onto. It was either that, reschedule or get a refund. We went ahead and 'held' the baby since we had already gone to all that trouble to get there, but it definitely wasn't the experience that we paid for. I asked one of the (very kind) workers at the gift shop if we could at least get a partial refund since we only got a partial experience. She asked her supervisor and was told no. I loved the park and was looking forward to telling my friends about it for their kids. But it felt like a bait-and-switch which left a bad taste in my mouth. I would ask that when scheduling the VIP sloth experience online in the future that you be very clear about which sloth it will be and what the experience will be. My daughter enjoyed petting and feeding the baby, but we were both very disappointed that it wasn't what we had signed up for (and paid for).
Jenn and Billy had great attitudes! They were cheerful and friendly.
