I went here with my family of 5. I received a military discount which brought our admission price down to $64, which I think is a lot of money. We walked outside and saw a lot of alligators but felt like the enclosures and the park itself was kind of run down compared to what we've seen in the past.... More

We were there att opening, so not much people. The staff was very great and had time to spend with us. They told us about all the animals and let us hold a python, a couple of gators and a lizzard. Very exiting. Super memory from our road trip.

We did not try the restaurant but have heard it was really good. We went to see and feed the gators took our son. He even got to hold a small one. We did check out the restaurant it was clean and smelled awesome.

My husband and I went here today, we were the only people there and got a personal tour by the intern from California (so sorry, forgot your name) he was brilliant and really informed us. We loved holding the alligators and the tiny snake. What a great day out and reasonably priced.

This is a dedicated group that puts on a fabulous show. Alligators, snakes, turtles...we even saw a crocodile. They are also a rescue group. There are also well informed youngsters helping entertain and educate and they are very good with the guest (especially children of the guest). This is not a fancy facility but it is very practical. Great fun.... More

Our 8 yr old boy had a great time. He learned so much and he was so excited. He said over and over how happy he was and how much fun he was having. We bought the adventure ticket so he could touch & hold a small gator and also wade in pool with gators. He also got to sit... More

We drove into Houston from Shreveport and purposely did not eat the whole way to have an appetite when we arrived here. I knew it had been some time since we had been there but when we had been the kids loved tossing fries to the gators, as did I. We showed only to be told the restaurant portion had... More

We bought package #1 - the kids got to catch small alligators in the pool, hold baby alligators, feed big ones, watch a show with the largest known alligator in captivity and sit on a live gator and get their picture taken. They had a blast! Well worth it after a bust of a "swamp" tour in Louisiana!

We had a great time. The kids really enjoyed getting in the pool to handle the baby gators. The snake roundup was pretty interesting too.

My boys and I enjoyed the park. It was a fun afternoon trip, less than a 30 minute drive. I didn't notice the restaurant. We'll try it next time. There was an awful smell due to a feeding mishap-lots of rotting turkey and fish. But we managed to ignore it for the most part. The most exciting attraction was swimming... More
