Enjoyed gator land for half a day , we even got stuck under shelter for a hour due to a horrendous thunder storm ( scary ). Anyway if your a gator lover you will love here , great photo opportunitys & we enjoyed feeding the gators hotdogs ! I do feel Chester needs a bigger home he looked quite cramped in there poor thing & the restrooms were disgusting !! Other than that great day

This place has changed a great deal for the better since our last visit a few years ago. It is such a wonderful place to learn about these amazing creatures, get to know other animals, walk around in their natural Swamp path and enjoy a few thrills on the zip line. Our 6 year old son absolutely enjoyed every minute of it and we would certainly return here for another day of fun and educational activites.
Two aspects prevents us from awarding 5 stars: the park allows SMOKERS in all areas which in today's world - really is big NO NO for ANY public space where families are involved - this was very disappointing. Secondly, the quality of the food leaves a lot to be desired. The gator nuggets are more a novelty item yet we'd appreciate some healthy offerings as well.
Overall a good time but really need to pay attention to instituting and enforcing a NO SMOKING POLICY!

i'd actually give it 4.5 stars. Our kids are 8, 10 and 12, and we all found this place very informational and fun. There are so many alligators, crocodiles, Tropical birds, and some surprise exhibits as well. The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. We were there for nearly 4 hours total since we also opted for the zip line tour. Our kids were the perfect ages for the zip line... any older and they might have been bored with it. Logan and Megan were fantastic tour guides. This is a very family friendly place.

It was a fun place to visit. We recommend that you time the visit to see all 3 shows.the best show was the gator wrestling. This review is based on a 9 year old and his dad.

We really liked the shows! My 9 year old loved the aviary where parakeets fly all around you, lighting on your head and shoulders. You can buy sticks with birdseed for $1 to feed them. My four year old loved to see the big alligators!
