Reviewed March 19, 2013

A bit cool in the morning when we were there but warmed up, gators are a bit cold in the morning so they dont move much and wont jump for chicken....shows get better as it gets warmer.

“Ok if you have nothing else to do”
Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

Over priced unless you want to spend more $$ to do anything else than walk around. Additional fees to feed the birds, or ride the train. Don't go during to cold weather months as the aligators don't move much as the water is too chilly. Be ready to spend more to do anything else beside walk around... At least it is free to park....for now anyway....

“Nice Family Outing”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Facilities are a bit aged/rundown, but the staff was friendly. Crowds were not excessive and we were able to watch all the planned presentations which are geared more for children. Cost is not excessive as at other major attractions in area. Was a cool day so the "jumperoo" was not too exciting. Would have liked to have heard a bit more about the life cycle of alligators.

“Great Place To Spend a 1/2 day away from the craziness”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

We enjoy taking people who have never been before. Maybe it's because you have low expectations, but, the place never disappoints. We especially like the shows. It's a little corny humor but, that to me is why it is so great. No fancy animation, special effects, or 3/4D stuff here just animals and people having fun. It's a little bit of a "throwback" park so maybe that's why the older generation still loves it -- but you will see a lot kids having a great time there as well. The staff is very friendly a they really seem like they enjoy working there.

I would recommend a warmer day because the gators are more active and make sure you buy the hotdogs to feed the gators which is fun for all ages.
