An interactive and entertaining theme park and zoological park based on Watson Island, Miami, Jungle Island has been a center of attraction of kids and adults alike for over eight decades now.
Founded in 1936 as Parrot Jungle, it was renamed in a bid to make it more appealing and more inclusive of other animal exhibits.
It was founded by wildlife conservation activists and animal trainers Franz and Louise Scherr. The park opened to over one hundred visitors. The entry fee during the first year of operation was set out to be mere 25 cents. The attractions that initially included were a private pet and bird collection of Scherr couple and the stories they would recount of these animals and birds.
However, it wasn’t until 1950, that the park actually got a famous tourist spot. Addition of animal exhibits from around the world and the building of a huge jungle amphitheatre topped off by treeline and canopies were major attractions.
One of the largest jungle amphitheatres in the world, this arena can host as many as 25000 people at once. Regular talent shows by birds and animals keep the spectators rooted to their seats. Other shows like documentaries related to wildlife conservation and environment protection are also shown regularly.
