Hold and kiss an alligator!

Kids ranging in age 9-16 had a blast holding the alligators and getting their picture taken. Even got to kiss the alligator!

Went to the Alligator Attraction in March 2017 with the kids (Age 14 & 8) my mother and Aunt. Price was very reasonable - About $5 each. The owner gave us a tour and shared some interesting facts about the alligators. Kids got to hold a small gator, pet a large turtle (tortoise), and hold some other reptiles throughout the... More

We stopped with two small kids,3 and 6, entrance fee was 6&5 $, you had to pay extra for holding a gator, which was so worth it! A lot of education we obtained by listening to staff explain everything. As adults we were very happy about learning opportunities we received, while kids had lots of fun interacting with animal expositions.... More

Go and hold one too. That 10 bucks extra but worth it. We are a family of 5 (7, 15, and 17). Everyone loved it.

This was a lot of fun. Especially for someone that loves alligators and crocodiles. I would love to go back and possibly take my nephew. I feel like children would have a much better time here than adults would, however, I had a wonderful time during my visit. But that's coming from a big kid.

My children wonted to do this..I liked it was cheap and different I mean u can hold a Alligator ! What I didn't like was that I asked them how long do u keep tape around the alligator mouth ( when people are holding it) and was told sometimes all day long.. I was very upset and mad about that...

We visit this place every year. I think it's like $32 for a family of 4 to enter and the kids (7 & 8) to feed the little alligators. They have a very friendly staff that do very well with the kids. The giant tortoise, Rudolph, (or whatever it is) is always a favorite with my kids. This year, they... More

Good place to visit. Hard to get a lot of information on the Gators because they had a larger group in there. But I thought it was worth our time and money... something different.

We have been coming here for years and it is a must stop for my son. The ownership is great and they make kids feel like a million bucks. They get to feed the gators, touch a tortoise and look at some lizards.
