Serpentarium is a unique reptile exhibit collections of around 200m of walk.Great varieties of frogs, snakes,lizards,turtles are present and neatly maintained.The interesting part is the option of having a snake in your hands which is definitely an experience . Recommended.

Very small attraction but loaded with all the critters that make you go squeamish. But the sad thing is that it's rather a small venue that if you just go to watch the animals are out after 30 minutes but if you really want to see them closely and view them for some time then it can take you 90...

Great place! Not huge but we spent a good 90mins here. Great range of snakes, lizards etc. Our 9 and 7 year old sons thought it was fab! Lots of vouchers available on booklets to get a discount on entry price so use those.

A lot of reptiles are housed here, although the place is a bit (too) small for the animals to live comfortably. Price/quality ok, petting the snakes as well as asking extra information is possible.

The serpantarium is actually really nice. The terrariums are set up with care, the reptiles (and other fauna) are interesting and clearly well-taken care of. The interior is very nice (though as a venue for kids it did seem to forget that if you've got terrariums up high, you need to accomodate some sort of step/ledge for the little ones... More

Went here after visiting the sea life center, you can get deals if you goto both. Other reviews saying they are in small enclosures obviously don't keep reptiles, I have been keeping lizards and snakes for many years and know that they were in vivariums well suited to them with plenty of available space and decor. If you like reptiles... More

I, like some of the other reviewers, also felt sorry for some of the animals that really tiny habitats (with the piranha in particular coming to mind). Often in other zoos, it can be very difficult to spot the animals. In Serpentarium however, it was quite easy, probably in part due to the smallness of the habitats. The aisles were... More

The Serpentarium is pretty small, but what shocked me the most was the size of the terrariums where the reptiles are kept in, and that there was not one real plant inside. The terrariums are tiny!!! I can't imagine that it's very comfortable for the reptiles. There is a big Piranha in a very tiny tank that is 40cm wide... More
