They are really nice folks but some of the animals concern me as they seem like they are very hungry and in fairly small/dirty enclosures. It is a good place if you want to try to see some Florida history but again the animal conditions worry me a bit.

The cost was right at $6.00 per person and then you bought animal feed, $4.95 which was popcorn with a few slices of grapefruit and orange. This place was so scary, creepy, with real spiders everywhere. There were no clear marked paths and the concrete was busted up on the paths. Very neglected looking. The animals enclosures were so small.... More

I'm sure my grandkids love the animals the best (where you can feed nearly everyone) but none of us ever forgets the generous servings (for tiny prices) of hand-dipped ice cream or a bag of fresh fruit to take home. And now they have mini-golf. Actually, I just stop there for the ice cream for myself sometimes.

Creepy place. We walked through store area and opted out of animals and grove. Good place to film a horror film.

I was looking for a local activity to take my 3 & 4 yr old grandchildren to and this place came highly recommended by locals. Reviews on here made me leery, but I know people can have overly high expectations at times or just be sketchy so we gave it a shot.... Yes, the store is an older establishment and... More

This is a quant place to visit. A little eccentric, old time Florida souvenirs, a nice mini animal zoo, fruits, cards, soda, gifts, ice cream. Everything a vacationer would want. You can send home whatever fruit is in season from oranges, grapefruits, tangerines, enjoy various nuts, candies, coconut creams to pralines. Sign up for monthly weekly or annual deliveries to...

This place is a joke. We walked in and there wasn't a person in sight. We walked back to where the fruit was and it was disgusting. I don't know how long the oranges had been laying there but there were fruit flies all over them. Don't waste your time or money!

This place is filthy and scary. Full of Banana spiders and the animals look like they need medical attention. Very sad. I would never bring my children there again.
