Walk among the great variety of animals and even hold a gator. Kids loved it. Most educational place I have visited for quite some time. This on top of a Zip Line and an awesome Go-Kart track makes it a must see.

We had the best time! In between zip lining, go karts and gators they have something for everyone. They are very military friendly and they did all they could to accommodate my disabled Dad.
