Very clean, very professional, history of the place is outstanding, staff is super friendly, Hugh and Kenny (?) are quite the pair, but the feed-a-croc attraction was slightly disturbing, all in all, it was an middlin'experience.

Great alligator show. The park has wonderful opportunities to get up close and personal with many species. Including holding a baby gator and petting a tortoise.

Iā€™m not much of a fan of reptiles but decided to go because I have a 3 yo who really wanted to go. I was AMAZED by the shear amount of venomous snakes. They had an awesome collection. I was stoked to see tons if snakes that I had only seen on that snake show with Simon šŸ˜‚ from South Africa. What was really neat is that we went at a time when all the snakes were really active and my kids really got excited seeing them right up against the glass. Also the HUGE croc was really fun to see!!! I recommend for snake fans and people with kids.

This place was AWESOME. My husband and I don't have kids and we were thinking this might be more geared towards kids but honestly, it was fun for everyone! The variety of snakes and reptiles they have here is incredible, from harmless to the most venomous types. The 16 ft crocodile was truly the most massive croc i've seen in my life. I really enjoyed the outdoor area where you could see some prairie dogs, birds, more crocs, and giant tortoises you could give neck scratches to as they munched on some grass. If you need to kill some time with the kids, take them here!
