Staff very knowledgeable and friendly and took time to answer our questions. These are well-cared for reptiles that will end up in a sanctuary when they are too big. Our 11 year old fed them and really enjoyed this. She did not wish to hold...More

Great little stop for the kids. The people that work there absolutely make it. They'll tell you all sorts of interesting facts. Our favorite was their large turtle, Rudolph, who was born on Christmas day! I thought it was worth the cost.

We have visited here the past 2 years, over spring break, and our now 7 year old loves it! Her faves are feeding the alligators and holding them. Super cute!

Very cute little attraction, admission goes to help supporting the animals! Get to see baby alligators at different ages. Also have a reptile room, fish tanks, and turtles. Can pay to hold an alligator and get your picture taken.

We spent a lot in here, had so much fun! From holding, kissing and feeding the alligators to good ole Rudolph the tortoise. We didn't even know this place was here we just stumbled upon it, so glad we did.

I like that the alligators here are rescued animals. When I first saw the sign for alligator attractions I was interested in seeing something different. There were no full-size alligators, I'm not sure why I expected that. What I saw was mostly baby alligators about...More
