Exploitation of animals that should be in the wild. My opinion, but alligators with their noses rubber banded closed is a form of animal abuse. Again, my opinion. PASS ON THIS.

The Alligator Attraction only has animals that are raised in captivity that may never be released into the wild. The gators are raised in farms for three reasons: to sell to restaurants for food, to sell to tanneries for belts, boots, etc., and to sell to locations for education and display. We do not ever touch wild alligators. The holding... More

Friendly staff. Talkative, welcoming and engaging. They actually cared that we were there. Very simple place, very educational. Loved it. Only $6 to get in - can't beat it.

We weren't expecting to find alligators on the second floor of a shopping area. My daughter has always wanted to hold an alligator and here they were! In addition to the gators, we had a great time looking at the fish, reptiles and the turtles. My daughter got to hold a 40 pound alligator and loved it! We got lots... More

How awesome for us and your daughter that you found us! It is a surprising place to find gators, but it can be a break from shopping. Lol. I'm happy your daughter finally got to hold- and kiss- a gator! More

Years ago, my daughter got the opportunity to hold an alligator but I didn't. I was so amazing, years later, to actually get to hold two of them. The guide was so friendly and informative. I will definitely make this a 'must see' recommendation to all my friends and family!

We stopped here to see a turtle since our 11 year old loves them. It was kind of expensive but worth it. We liked looking at the turtles, alligators and fish. The girls liked seeing it all.

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.

Wanted something easy and cheap to do with the 11,12,14 &16 year old kids. Because we had a group of 7 we only paid $4 each. Of course the girls took a selfie with the big tortoise. To hold the alligator it was only $15 for them to hold together, not a bad deal. Afterwards we walked around, plenty of... More
