The collection of reptiles was quite impressive and the staff very knowledgeable and interactive ( the kids got to hold and pet a snake) however-It was a dump! The ceiling was falling in, water stains everywhere, but the cages seemed clean and animals well cared for. We enjoyed seeing them but cant imagine this place being around for long. Would... More

Basic little park that follows the theme of the town famous for dinosaurs. The Tyrrell museum is the big draw and the best part of the city. If you are a dinosaur enthusiast, be sure to do the museum

Appropriate for the area, going into this attraction you will be able to view many different types of reptiles. My favorite were the alligators. Many varieties, quite interesting. The staff are informative.

Good way to see some reptiles. All behind glass but the keepers do bring snakes out for you to hold if you are so inclined to do so.

We tried to see this today and there is a sign saying under new management and we could not get in. It looked as though they have shut down permanently, I hope it is not but this is what we saw when we tried to take our kids.

Sadly this had to closedown early this year...it is really to bad as it gave our children a summer job...and it more so gave visitors a great appreciation for our reptiles...this is a big loss for Drumheller as a whole

This place was pretty good but the conditions placed on it to meet regulatory requirements (like a new AC system) helped them decide to just shut it all down.

Reptile world is now This place is closed, it was in the centre of Downtown Drumheller. I asked for the reasons why it closed...they guessed its the economy?

My 4 year old thought the place was pretty neat but myself, I have a lot of experience with reptiles and I didn't find the animals very well kept. The place is absolutely freezing inside which can't be good for the reptiles. I sure hope the heat lamps are warm enough. I noticed the red foot tortoises shells have severe... More
