The show was just ok, but totally is too simple. All poor monkey was caged. Also there are less people are going there.

Thus show was one a rip off and two animal cruelty at its best. One of the older monkeys was so ANGRY and quite aggressive. It was actually a bit scary. Will never return or recommend to anyone.

Do not go to this place, they do not deserve your money. The monkeys are kept on very short chains and basically go insane and get broken so that they can perform these useless tricks.

A really sad experience. We entered because we saw a sign along the road. It is something you could have seen 30 years ago. Monkeys locked in really small cages, others chained to the trees with 1 meters long chains. All monkeys seems sadness and...More
