  • Jungle Island
    For twenty terrifying nights this fall, the normally tranquil confines of Watson Island will be visited by an ancient evil and the malevolent modern forces that awakened it. Designed by the frightmasters that brought you the award-winning Festival of Souls?which was voted the scariest haunted house in Florida by HauntWorld.com?Terror in the Jungle transforms Jungle Island into a massive, interactive haunted experience. Visitors enter a jungle beset by toxin-infused beasts, shambling zombies, and wrathful gods bent on punishing any mortal who dares wander the undergrowth. After navigating five acres of dense pathways, visitors arrive at the main event: the Ruins Pyramid Haunted House, a 10,000 square foot temple of unimaginable evil and bone-chilling scares. The Storyline Like a great scary movie, Terror in the Jungle comes with a back story that sets up the fright within. The story begins on 12/21/2012, a day purported to mark the end of the world according to the Mayan calendar. As the world woke to yet another day on Earth, the prophesy manifested itself in an unexpected way. In the skies above Mexico, a cargo plane transporting hazardous materials from a government research lab faltered, crashing into the ruins of an ancient, forgotten city. The toxins on board seeped into the surrounding environment, mutating plants and people alike. Locals entreated the old gods for help, but found only retribution; insulted by mankind's disregard for life and nature, the deities unleashed the Hunter, a demon bent on wiping out any human in its path. It is now 2014. The Mexican government, desperate for answers about the crash and its aftermath, has uncovered rumors of ecological unrest deep within a remote jungle. Now, government officials and Hazmat containment specialists are gathered at the entrance to the jungle, preparing to clean up their catastrophic mess. Little do they know that these trees conceal overgrown beasts, risen undead, and a supernatural force more powerful than anything they've ever encountered.

  • Santa's Enchanted Forest
    Giant toy soldiers clothed in thousands of colored lights wave at passersby as glowing reindeer take off into the dusk. Towering Christmas trees topped with stars glimmer and glisten with blue and green fiber optics. At Santa's Enchanted Forest, one of the world’s largest Christmas-themed amusement parks, holiday spirit and festive music fill the air long before the end of December. Visitors laugh and shriek on a multitude of carnival rides, including whirling swings, bumper cars, tower drops, and roller coasters, whipping through the air until their cheeks are as rosy as old Saint Nick’s. Traditional carnival games are also on hand, such as dart tosses and soccer-ball kicks, to complement more unconventional carnival amusements such as giant plastic balls to roll around in and a rock-climbing wall to scale. Wee visitors, meanwhile, can make the acquaintance of small livestock in a petting zoo or draw a portrait of their favorite goat in royal costume on a wall-size coloring-book mural. Carnival food, such as barbecue, pizza, and cinnamon donuts, fuels guests as they conquer rides or take in the Cats of the World Tiger Show, the Cirque Equinox, or the Sea Lion Splash Spectacular.

  • Monkey Jungle
    This third-generation, family-owned protected wildlife habitat offers the rare chance to see nearly 400 primates run free. Monkey Jungle is the only protected habitat for endangered primates in the United States that is open to the general public, allowing visitors to explore the 30-acre reserve. Upon entering, guests are immediately welcomed by Java monkeys, who at scheduled times will showcase their water skills as they dive into a pool to get fruit pieces. Stroll through a recreation of the Amazon rainforest, the only semi-natural tropical rainforest in North America. The founder of Monkey Jungle spent five years collecting hundreds of different species of plants, trees and palms to mimic the habitat of howler, black-capped capuchin and squirrel monkeys that normally call the South American jungle home. Keep walking to eventually discover the bird domes, blossoming with displaced and captive parrots, as well as orangutans and gorillas that explore the grounds.
