This place seems a bit second rate but since we had 5 or more people you only paid $5. We had some small kids with us who thought it was pretty neat. If you only have older kids probably wouldn't recommend but the little kids...More

Lots of fun for all ages. Interesting and informative, kind of a local little aquarium. We paid extra for the grandkids to feed and pet the alligators. Worth every penny to see those big smiles

We enjoyed the Alligator Experience ... but the kids actually liked the Turtles, Frogs, and Fish more than the Alligators. We were disappointed that you had to pay extra to actually hold an Alligator. (over 10.00 each kid in addition to the entry fee)

Great little stop for the kids. The people that work there absolutely make it. They'll tell you all sorts of interesting facts. Our favorite was their large turtle, Rudolph, who was born on Christmas day! I thought it was worth the cost.
