“snakes and more snakes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Can be scary for someone who has a phobia for reptiles, however I have been there many times since my childhood and would recommend it for as you get to learn more about snakes

“Shabby and very tired.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Built in the 1960s and desperately in need of a facelift. Many of the snakes were in crumbling concrete "boxes" with very little attempt to recreate their natural habitats.

Other reptiles were also, I felt, kept in less than ideal conditions and only the fish and tortoises seemed content in any way.

Maybe I've been spoiled by the likes of Chester Zoo and other excellent facilities, but this place really saddened me. In fact, the only two thingss I enjoyed were the sign saying "Trespassers will be poisoned" and the exit.

“Torn and very old looking....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

I have been in Snake Park last week and got very much disappointed because of the poor condition. I almost felt like somebody has to help these snakes because it seems like they have forgotten and been left alone. There are not many visitors neither any guards inside. It was hard to see the snakes cause of the dirtiness of the windows....there are no info about the snakes, they are just poorly displayed. It took for us to no more than 5 minutes to tour the park.
