What are Jungle Island's inclement weather protocols?
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.
Are pets allowed?
We love animals, however only "TRAINED SERVICE DOGS" will be permitted to enter the park. (dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities)
Can guests touch or feed the animals or parrots in the park?
Touching and feeding animals at Jungle Island is strictly prohibited unless the guest is participating in one of our many guided animal encounters.
Is Cash accepted in the park for payment?
Jungle Island is cashless, we accept credit cards, debit cards, as well as Applepay & Googlepay.
