The five year old thought it was awesome. After being at Seaworld I think he may have been a little underwhelmed though. He was dying to touch the stingrays as they allow at SeaWorld, however, he understood. Rudolph, the large turtle, was fun and he enjoyed seeing it up close. The price was fair and it was interesting.

I was very impressed with the alligator attraction at John's Pass. The staff is very knowledgable and attentive. My daughter loved being able to pet the animals and even my husband and I learned quit a bit. Would definitely return.

Stopped in whilst strolling around John's Pass and we had a great time. I even got to hold a 5yr old Alligator which was amazing. We will definitely be going back!

This is a good place to bring your family to get out of the Florida heat for a little while. The exhibit is cheap to visit, so it won't break the bank. You can see baby alligators, big alligators, tortoises, and more. My toddler loved watching the alligators and the big tortoise walking around.

Fun time at Gator attraction. Both sons enjoyed feeding frenzy. Young son held small gator. Add on aquarium attraction weak at best. Still worth the fee all around. 5.00 bucks to feedem. 10.00 small gator pic. 15.00 large gator pic.

I did not expect much out of this, but I really enjoyed it. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and welcomed all questions. There was no rush or time frame for seeing the gators. They also have a couple tortoises roaming around than you can pet and feed. Great for families and couple.

It was raining so we went here for something to do. Kids loved seeing the alligators and our two oldest (7 &9) got to hold the little ones and kiss them. Great photo opportunity and the kids all loved it. Our 3 year old loved it too. Doesn't take much time but the kids loved it so it was worth... More

My 8 year old enjoyed feeding the gators and telling me about how he "trained" them. Fun and inexpensive entertainment for 30 minutes or so. Arcade is next door so good for a vacation activity.
