We had an amazing time! Awesome opportunity to view some amazing animals and look at a number of threatened animals. The park is very well managed.

The Alligator Farm can be expensive for a family of 5, but look for coupons (we found an online coupon that didn't look very official, but the Alligator Farm accepted it, no questions asked). The kids liked the Farm but it was quite crowded. They especially enjoyed buying food for a quarter and throwing it to the little gators, though the little gators didn't seem very hungry or interested in the food pellets. The birds have giant rookeries in the trees, and that was fun for the kids, too. I wouldn't go there without a coupon of some sort and wouldn't spend more than a few hours.

This was one of the must do's on my visual bank bucket list and it did not disappoint! Many of the animals were difficult for me to see but getting to feed the gators and crocs made up for it! It was easy to get around in with my cane and there was a lot to experience through touch, sound and smell! There are many exhibits you can experience through touch and if you are there at the right time you get to hear an alligator choir! Not kidding. It added an incredible level of experience for this visually impaired gal! Terrific snack shack and gift shop. A must do for any age or ability when you go to St. Augustine!

Made the Florida swing for vacation and joked we were going to stop at an "Alligator Farm" while in the state. We were pleasantly surprised with this park. The folks were nice and informative (watched demo and feeding). There was a lot to see. The big croc was kewl, and they one of every type, something no other farm has! It was a nice two hour side trip. Is great for kids as they have viewing areas designed for kids and wheelchairs. They have a rope line (which is extra) that looked pretty neat but we did not try it.

Took grand kids and they enjoyed it very much. Lots of gators birds and reptiles to see they enjoyed the turtles and gators. The staff including the ticket office, the store and concession stand was rude and very unfriendly. My son met us there 20 mins before closing time and they were going to charge him full price just to meet us in park. He asked to use restroom which was just inside door of park and he had to report back to them when he finished. All this dampened the pleasant part of the kids experience.
