Chained monkeys forced to perform, fearful of their trainer. Negative reinforcement training. Don't support animal cruelty. Commercial, need to pay to take photos. Loud speakers everywhere. If there were no cruel shows, chained animals, and visitors would be banned to feed the monkeys human food,...More

It first seemed like a monkey heaven, but looking into it, it got really disturbing. The animals are abused to do tricks for money. They didn't look happy at all and it looked more like hell sprinkled with glitter to mislead the mass. I'm never...More

This is a fun place to visit. You can take either boat or cable car to get there. There were a lot of monkeys and several shows. It is kind of small place.

This Lots of monkeys freely roam the park and interact with people. The shows are crowded,so, we watched only one of them and spent time in the park.

We paid a lot of money to get into this 'attraction', the queue was ridiculously long. This said the cable car ride was stunning and the views were amazing. Unfortunately, the actual monkey island seemed to involve 2 or 3 main areas where the monkeys...More

Nice views, but the animals involved in shows are treated very badly. They beat the monkeys, put a bear in chains and force him to take pictures with people and the rest of the animals aren't treated any better.
