We were the first ones there June 5th 2014. Admission is a bit much but it's okay because it feeds the animals. Our guide was Christina. She knows her stuff. We got to touch a few animals. The thing we liked the most was the little show with big Al.. Some guy would make Big Al snap his mouth..it was really cool. My little boys face was priceless. After the tour we just walked around feeding the alligators. .....they all start coming towards you when you throw the food... went to gift shop.. shirts are $20 adults and kids.. Overall I liked it.
I came back in the afternoon with my daughter ...it was a bit different in the afternoon. . It was like 4:30 or so... Their website says that starting June hours are 10-6pm so I went thinking it was more than enough time. When we get there I am told they will be closing at 5pm. I tell them what their website says. They kept telling me they close at 5 and that they been closing at 5. Again I tell them that their website says that starting June they close at 6. I never got an answer regarding that. I just said it was fine. Our second guide was informative but not like our first. Out first guide will take us to the next exhibit while our second would ask us what we wanted to see next. We went straight to big Al. He managed to get him out and snap his mouth. Loved it like the first time. My daughter was scared of the alligators so it wasn't a big deal. We went back to the baby alligators and my daughter finally touched it. She wanted to take him home :-)
Overall I really enjoyed both my visits.
Oh and when I called before I went the second time the guy that answerd the phone made my chuckle :-)
He answered the phone by saying "thank you for calling so and so what's your favorite color? Lol I sort of froze and said "excuse me but right away I said Orange. :-)
