This is interesting if you have not seen gator attractions before. Otherwise it is just run of the mill. We were there with a three year old and she thoroughly enjoyed it. They had many other animals in cages - not near enough room for them to move. There were 3 shows that were mildly interesting. Ok if you need... More

This was our second time visiting Alligator Adventure. We really enjoyed it. Be sure to watch them feed the gators it really is neat. Also get to the viewing area early so you can be sure to get a good spot to see everything. Very hot midday, if you can go early or in the evening try to.

I visited alligator adventure for the second time, this time with my three year old. He gad the time of his life, we watched the alligator feeding, reptile show, and got our photo holding a baby gator. I was really impressed by the prices of food and the gift shop. This is a must see attraction for families with young... More

Make sure to go early! I've gone 3 times once mid day and twice within 2 hours of opening. Mid day it's hot, crowded, sticky and just plain miserable. There are so many people you can't see the shows unless u get there 30 min early, and then u wait. The feeding shows are a must! The alligators jump and... More

This was a fun experience for my family. The staff was friendly and there was alot to see here. There is much more to see than alligators. It is almost like going to the zoo. There are some educational presentations that teach others about animals as well. We liked it and would definately recommend it!

Visited here while on day trip to barefoot Landing. Well laid out park and the shows were excellent and very informative. The children looking on seemed to be having great fun.

We visited twice during our recent trip. Our first visit was around 11 am. It was so hot and muggy we only stayed for about a half hour. The animals were all sluggish in the heat too. We returned later in the week at 8 pm and loved it. The animals were all active, the park wasn't as crowded and... More

The enclosures were very tiny and completely over crowded with animals, it was fun to see them, but I felt terrible for them, having to live that way. Some crocs and gators could not even turn around, many looked miserable. What bothered me the most was in the gift shop they sold live African dwarf frogs in air tight container... More

Lots of gators and crocs! There are huge crocs that you wouldn't see in ordinary zoos. Their shows are very educational. My 6 y/o son loved it.
