“So glad we came!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

We are very pleased with the facility! ! Clean!! We had children from ages 4-11 with us. All were indulged in every activity. The staff were more than happy to answer questions from the kids even when it was a repeated question. The staff took an unrushed approach to our children, means a lot to us parents. You guys are doing a great job there at Clydes!!

“More than it appeared to be.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

With two teens in tow we have to say that we had a really good time here. Yes, at $16.00 it was the most expensive admission price we paid on this trip but, when you think about all that goes into a zoo and the cost of feeding exotic reptiles, it is worth it. Especially, the dinosaur exhibit - my wife's favorite.

We did not eat here so I can't speak about the small cafe.

Downside? The alligators were pretty tired so they didn't move much.

“Great place to vist with family!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

I don't agree with what other reviewers have said that Reptialnd is overpriced. It's not cheap, but operating a zoo costs money and at Reptiland you get every bit of your money's worth. Reptiland is a great place to learn about snakes and other creatures that you don't usually get to see. We have had a family membership for several years and my kids still want to visit as often as we can. With the recent addition of the Komodo Dragons, the place is getting more and more exiting! Reptiland also has other offerings such as animatronic Dinosaurs, Butterflies, and very cool shows. Overall, this place is great to visit and I would recommend it to anybody who enjoys wildlife!

The animatronic dinosaurs are great! This a great place to visit for a day trip. The tree frogs were very colorful. Komodo dragons are very interesting. Lots of snakes to check out to.

“wonderful day trip with family :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

We took our three year old today for her birthday , along with our one year old ... We decided since she loved the reptiles at the Philly zoo so much she would enjoy this place , we live in wilkes barre and this place is a quick stop off Interstate 80 , very easy to find !! When we arrived we were instantly greeted by a very friendly person that helped check us in and told us all about the park and where all the shows would be that day ..... We also enjoyed the picnic areas and they allow you to pack your own lunches and bring it with you to eat in certain designated areas of the park . The park was very clean !!! We were amazed at how well maintained everything was !! The animals are very well cared for and the employees are very friendly , when were were standing at T. rex a very nice man came up to us and showed us how to get him to interact with us !!! The employes really enjoy there jobs !!! My daughter loved the dinosaur walk we did it three times !! It is really cool !! The dinosaurs interact with you ,they move and roar, one sprays water , she talked about them the whole way home !!!!!! Also while we were there they were getting ready to film a commercial and I was talking to who I thought was an employee at first he was nice and was commenting on the two large turtles and how they were worried about the one bc he had an ear infection the other day bc of the recent usual cold weather , he seemed very worried about the animal and then went to check on him and then the turtle named "al" came outside and then when they started filming the commercial we realized it was mr peelings son , and mr peeling himself :)!!!!!!! It was so nice to see how much they obviously love and care about the animals here !!!! We will definetly be returning and highly recommend !!!! After we left we headed down to downtown lewisburg to walk around some of the shops , it is a cute town , very old homes , but being a Monday seemed like alot of stuff was closed , but we had a great time anyway :)!!!!!!
