We went on a whim after visiting Spindletop. Weren't sure it would be worth it when we turned in, seemed run down, drive in full of potholes. Then when we found out the price $15, thought it seemed high for what we had seen while walking in. Decided to do it just because it was something we had never done... More

We recommend with kids two boys 8/6. The staff and the owner keep us coming back and recommending this place.... More

I had driven by so many times without stopping but when we have visitors from out of town and looking for something unusual we thought of "that place near Beaumont that has gators". What a great idea and wished we would have gone sooner. We were a group of 2 adult couples and arrived and met Ryan who took us... More

This is an unusual activity for the whole family. The kids (and adults) enjoyed feeding the gators, holding the baby gators and eating in the very good restaurant. Well worth a visit.

Took the Grandsons to see the gators and whatever they had to do and see. Place is typical southeast texas. Rough road in and the surroundings are just plain. Nothing fancy. Needs some upgrades and cleanup. Have several people there but they don't do much. example: ceiling fans almost falling off. One is very dangerous hanging right over where they... More

Go early to have more hands on time with the alligators. The shows with the bigger alligators seem to involve the young interns getting the beasts to swim over and snap in close proximity to their hands. One day the old gators will get a result! Is it worth making a long journey to? Probably not given the cost. But... More
