Reptilia is a really unique place and the staff are great (thanks Lee and Andre). The animals are amazing and it is very clean and my kids loved it !!! Theatre shows, lots of opportunities to touch animals and get close. Loved the (apparently new) Kids Zone and the dig for treasures sandbox - every kids gets a free reptilie... More

It's a great place, very educative and fun.. My only recommendation would be for the place to try and build something like a small playground or something more entertaining and fun, specially since the basic great thing is there: YOU ARE ALREADY AN INDOOR FACILITY. If there was a reason for the kids to want to come back we would.... More

I suppose it was somewhat worth it for the discount tickets we got but otherwise would not have been. We were in and out in an hour. Not very big. More of the same around every corner. My kids got bored fast.

This is a bit strange but excellent experience at Reptilia. One of the main impressions I had after touring the facility is that it was put together with great care. It is not only the exhibition aspect, but the care for the reptiles on display that is very evident. While many people have pretty negative reactions to reptiles, this is... More

All in all this was a surprisingly well implemented zoo. For everyone wanting to learn more about the slithering species of the world this is the place to go. The exhibits were stunning and they have live feedings every day. Perhaps their best features are the extras – their programming is phenomenal!

Stopped in here today with my wife on the way home. We were looking for something cool to photograph and we found it here. Lots of cool reptiles from turtles to snakes to lizards and gators. They have shows in the theatre and feeding times for different reptiles posted. Between the two of us we took almost 300 pictures and... More

Our family visited Reptilia last year. It was a small place with lots to see and do. We enjoyed seeing and learning about all the different reptiles they had. We loved being able to see them up close. We also enjoyed feeding time for the lizards.

I like the fact we can touch reptiles like turtles, snacks etc. There was a demo with the gators and it was awesome. Mostly there are pythons to see. The birthday parties are awesome for kids.

Great to see these animals close up. Have never seen so many snakes. Our kids learned a lot about reptiles.

8/30/14 Worthwhile expereince but bad mgt. Feedings must be better managed. Get your video cameras/monitors working to broadcast the feeding experience and education away from just the physical feeding window. If you have 100 ppl show up at a feeding display, capable for only 30 ppl, it will cause problems. My "pollte" daughter of 12, was not impressed and could... More
