Wow, what a great attraction. Over 20 different kinds of alligators, crocodiles, and caimens. Just amazing! And the bird rookery is not to be missed! So many varied species nesting right there naturally. You gotta do this !

Great place to see gators and other crocs. We enjoyed seeing them fed and feeding them ourselves in the swamp. For just a quarter, you get a handful of small pellets of food. Throw one or more in the water near the gators and see...More

The only place in the world that has every species of crocodile and alligator. The best part is in the summer the local shore birds nest over the swamp and there are hundreds and hundreds of birds and their babies.

This place is clean, exciting, and full of really neat animals. My daughter loved it. The food wasn't bad. Tip, get a drink early (if you plan on drinking a soda) and you have free refills all day in a reusable take-home cup. The shows...More

We live in Jacksonville Fl and go at least once a year or longer. point being you will not be disappointed when you visit here. The farm has been here a long time and has so many animals and gators to see.

We weren't sure what to expect, but it came highly recommended. It definitely lived up to the hype. The hourly shows were entertaining and informative, and the exhibits were very nice and well maintained. The Birds of Africa section was spectacular and a little unnerving...More

Went here last week while visiting on vacation. My 2 year old loved it. I loved the huge alligators as I have not ever seen one in person. Great information about the animals.

This is one of the most amazing places. Nesting Birds come there by the hundreds to raise their young. You can get within a couple feet of some of the nests and see the eggs and the babies. Must see and take your camera. Great...More

Loved the Alligator Farm!! Stroller (or wheelchair) accessible in all areas. Hundreds of alligators/crocodiles (who can tell the difference) of all sizes in different habitats. Interesting and informative presentation in the alligator lagoon, plus we got to watch a feeding demonstration.

To be fair if your from Florida which we are I thought it was extremely boring. You pay $25.00 a person to walk in circles looking at every kind of alligator, croc and bird. Educational of course but we have been to other alligator/zoo parks...More

We have an alligator feeding every day at 12,3 and 6pm in the summer, so we suggest you base your visit around one of those times. Also, you get your hand stamped when you pay admission, so you can come and go all day long!
With regards to the zip-line courses, what type of braking system is used? I've been on courses before where you use your gloved hand directly on the line to stop yourself. Just curious what method is used here.

No, he should be fine! The park is laid out in a kind of cloverleaf pattern and there are shady places to sit and watch the animals.
