This was something my friend and I wanted to check out. But don't go there with the expectations of seeing a lot of "action" with the gators. They were sleeping/inactive most of the time. The staff, Noah, was really good, though, and it was interesting...More

We are so impressed with this park, it is small, but not lacking. It is so awesome, that we wished so bad our kids had traveled with us for this reason. The food in the snack bar was fantastic!!

This is one of my son and I favorite places to go. He calls the alligators "Chomp Chomps" and loves feeding them in the lagoon. Awesome live exhibits of reptiles, birds, monkeys, lemurs and so much more. A must see destination here in town.

We always go to the St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park every time we go to St. Augustine. It's a neat place. Cost is $24.99 but 10% savings with AAA or seniors. My favorite area is the alligator swamp and rookery where they also feed...More

We have an alligator feeding every day at 12,3 and 6pm in the summer, so we suggest you base your visit around one of those times. Also, you get your hand stamped when you pay admission, so you can come and go all day long!
With regards to the zip-line courses, what type of braking system is used? I've been on courses before where you use your gloved hand directly on the line to stop yourself. Just curious what method is used here.

No, he should be fine! The park is laid out in a kind of cloverleaf pattern and there are shady places to sit and watch the animals.
