My wife and I were here in December on a Friday morning and had a great time. During the winter they are only open on weekends. There were very few people there so we could spend a lot of time viewing the animals. We spent 4 hours there and didn't see everything. However with your admission you get a pass... More

as noted in another review alot of alligators in a relatively small space.. The best and scariest attraction is the 2000 pound crocadile....It scares me that they are so close to the waterway but are well isolated in ther own enclosure. Nice side shows and other animals as well.There is always something different everytime I go....Dan

I loved going to Alligator Adventure! There are so many different animals to look at and very informative staff if you hang around for the presentations. The place is conveniently located and priced fairly and if you like what you see they let you come back for free the next day! I especially like the Albino Gator exhibit and the... More

This was a small zoo. Tons of alligators as the name would suggest, we were told about 800 with a capacity for 2,000! My boyfriend and I like to go see animals in zoos or aquariums and this place was nice for its size. They gave us military price which saved us some money but still seemed a little high.... More

No offense to Southerners; this place is not a redneck retreat. It appears to be a well-run display and rescue facility for reptiles, birds and other animals. Excellent for up-close and informative exhibits and demonstrations. Great place for family snapshots and animal photography (bring the good camera and lenses). We went during the low season (Thanksgiving week) and on a... More

This was a great place to take my alligator-obsessed young son, and I liked it as well. It isn't very big in terms of land area, but they have a lot of exhibits. They also do a feeding show and an educational show, both of which were interesting to see. The staff was friendly and engaged. There were a few... More

Great variety of things in addition to alligators and crocidiles. They have a couple kukaburras, three areas of lemurs, kangaroos, and many other cool things here. We go every year on vacation and this year we went twice. Our 3 year old loves it there and cannot stop saying kukaburra.

We have came to Myrtle Beach for 4 years now but never took the chance to come here. Boy are we glad we did now! My son got to get his picture taken holding an alligator and is still talking about it a month later. I was shocked by the amount of gators they had but the other animals they... More
