“The Alligator Farm is a great one to two hour thing to do with kids.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2010

I don't care for zoos too much, but this is a great thing to do when you need a little something to do during the day in St. Augustine. Believe it or not, the food here is also VERY good and I'm a food snob! The park is interesting and fun for the kids and it only takes a couple hours at most to get through. I really like that it's not an "all day affair" and that the parking & location are very convenient.

“A place for kids”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2010

If you have kids or have never seen alligators and crocodiles, then this is the place. There are literally thousands of different species in this park. We watched the feeding show and the alligator info show which was ok. The alligators are really lazy but we did observe a little "fight" when a gator got in the way of the dominant one. Plenty of birds to see as well. There were 2 baby alligators recently born so that was really the trip highlight for this place.

“Good place to stare at Alligators”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2010

If you have never seen a gator up close and personal before, this is your place to be. Don't expect much excitement, kids will love it. The shows are informative and the handlers are very gentle and respectful.
REMEMBER: These creatures are reptiles and there is a very distinct odor. I have never understood reviewers who complain of animal smells when at a zoological park.

“Nice place for kids.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2010

If you have a kid that likes aligators or has never seen a real one, this is the place to go. There are thousands of them. Not much shade in the summer and it can smell bad too but worth it for a kid.

“Not bad.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2010

It was just a bunch of alligators obviously, we spent about $90.00 just to walk for 30 min. It is great for small kids, the shows were great. There should have been more variety in the park. Overall, if you are over say 16 don't bother its more a kids attraction.
