German-Themed Park to Replace Jungleland Zoo in Kissimmee, FL

Move over EPCOT World Pavilion; there’s a new German-themed park coming to Central Florida. Krush Brau Park will replace Jungleland Zoo in Kissimmee. Abandoned Florida reports that the zoo closed in 2017 after over 20 years of service.

Orlando Magazine reports that Krush Brau Park’s owner, Waylon Krush, found inspiration for the park while he was stationed overseas in Germany. Plans are underway for an outdoor biergarten, animatronic zoo, playground, and other amenities.

The future site of the children’s playground.

There are plans for a tented area called “Festplatz,” which will host German festivals, including Oktoberfest and Weihnachten Fest, a Christmas festival. Festplatz had kickoff events earlier this year. Visitors will also enjoy German cuisine, including giant pretzels, schnitzel, and knockwurst.

Krush told Orlando Magazine that he will keep Jungleland Zoo’s original facade and tweak it to meet the new park’s theme. It will feel as though visitors are traveling from Central Florida and straight into Bavaria, Germany. The park itself measures seven acres.

The project will complete its first phase in spring 2022.

The project’s first phase will open in spring 2022. When the project reaches full completion, it’ll be open seven days a week. Visitors won’t have to pay admission fees, although they will have to pay for ticketed events, like concerts and other seasonal attractions.

Krush Brau Park’s address is 4580 West Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway, Kissimmee, FL, 34746. The park is currently open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays during festivals.
