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
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.
