“The Adults Enjoyed It To”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

We really enjoyed our visit, the staff are very informed. The show they put on a couple times a day is fantastic. Lots for the kids to do and see. Quite educational and plenty of fun.

“Good Attraction for the family.”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Visited this location on the weekend. Found that they had a great display of snakes as well as some interesting alligator and croc displays. Very few lizards. Took us about 1.5 hours to go through the exhibit. Thought it was priced a little high $20 Adult / $15 Youth, but can fully respect what it would cost to keep a facility of exotic species like this running so I felt it was reasonable. I'm not a big fan of snakes, etc, but my family was fairly impressed by the exhibit. Staff were knowledgeable and it was obvious that they are very passionate about what they do. I would recommend it.

“Waste of time”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

This place is way over priced for the service and displays. If you have an extra 50 bucks you can shop in their gift shop and ask the staff a question? they treat you like an idiot.

“Go to their educational outreach program instead...”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

This "zoo" is very small, mostly indoors, and made up of lots of small fish tanks with labels. I wouldn't bother to drive out to Indian River. We were disappointed.
I saw their educational outreach program at the library though and it was well done.
