About Jungle Island:

Formerly called Parrot Jungle Island, the new name reflects the parks incredible variety – they feature much more than just parrots! The park has several daily animal shows that even parents will enjoy - featuring majestic tigers, exotic birds, and more. The Serpentarium houses giant reptiles, including Crocosaurus - the biggest crocodile in the New World. Don't miss the park's star residents Peanut and Pumpkin, a pair of rambunctious twin orangutans. And don't forget the Hippo Slide – a 168-foot, pulse-quickening slide open to older kids and adults.
