We spent a lot in here, had so much fun! From holding, kissing and feeding the alligators to good ole Rudolph the tortoise. We didn't even know this place was here we just stumbled upon it, so glad we did.

this used to be a very affordable little place, only 2-3 dollars per person( all its worth in my opinion) but now its 5-6 dollars per person, it doubled its admission cost in less than 2 years? not worth it. just skip it.

Small but interesting place to learn about alligator. Reasonable entrance price at $7 per adult, $6 for children. You get to see and learn about alligators, their feeding habits, their likes/dislikes, and even get to touch and hold one at an additional cost. We paid...More

Pretty neat little place. My kid liked it, my wife seemed to enjoy it. It was a little pricey for no more than it was.
