Jungle Island has started a brand new tradition to kickoff 2020 in South Florida.
Park visitors now can ice skate in shorts and T-shirts at Miami’s only outdoor ice skating rink, located in the heart of a tropical jungle. The nearly one-acre ice rink, made of real ice and decked out in decorations reminiscent of a Winter Wonderland, is open for daytime and nighttime visitors.
Additionally, the popular eco-adventure attraction offers its guests the opportunity to stroll through an enchanting nighttime jungle filled with hundreds of giant, colorful and illuminated lanterns — shaped into exotic animals indigenous to Jungle Island, birds and flowers, marine life and iconic Miami destinations — during Luminosa Festival of Lights, which has been extended until Feb. 9. Jungle Island partnered with the world’s top Chinese Lantern Festival designers to create this magical experience.
“For over 80 years, Jungle Island has been a favorite pastime for locals and tourists to visit,” said Curtis Crider, Jungle Island’s general manager. “We look forward to continuing this tradition with additions that are unique to the area and to helping our guests build memories while they spend time with their family and friends this season.”
Through Mar. 2, the ice skating rink is open to the public, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and during Luminosa Festival of Lights evenings, Wednesday-Sunday from 5 to 10 p.m., until Feb. 9.
Jungle Island is located at 1111 Parrot Jungle Trail on Watson Island between Miami and Miami Beach.
Admission is $49.95 per adult, $39.95 per child (3-10 years old), which includes daytime park admission, one-hour ice skating and skate rentals, along with access to Adventure Bay, over 350 animals, exhibits and shows. Jungle Island offers an unlimited ice skating add-on for an additional $15 per guest. To purchase tickets, visit www.jungleisland.com.
