Rainy days and storms are inevitable in Miami, so Jungle Island is open rain or shine! Some pathways are under cover but much of the park is open to the elements. To keep Jungle Island’s guests, staff, and animals safe during storms we abide by the following protocols.
When lightning occurs within 10 miles of Jungle Island, animal encounters and tree walk village will be temporarily closed to the public. Jungle Island officials will wait to reopen these experiences until 15-30 minutes after the last lightning strike. All guests are then encouraged to stay under cover and out of the storm. This is a great time to get a bite to eat or browse our gift shop!
Guests who have purchased animal encounters will have the opportunity to reschedule or join a tour later in the day if space is available.
Jungle Island animals may also be taken to behind the scenes housing during the inclement weather. Not to worry though! These animals will come back out once it is safe to do so.
These policies and procedures are in place to keep our adventurers safe and we thank you in advance for your understanding.
