This is a reasonable priced thing to do in the area. They have great animals, fun activities, and they also have a water play area for hot days. This is a great place especially if you have kids!

Really fun new experience. We fed some dart frogs, held a snake and a lizard, and got up close to an armadillo. The trainers were very knowledgeable and made the experience great. I definitely recommend this is you like reptiles.
