Great time

The name says it all, plan to go around feeding times esp if you have young kids it's the closest thing the beach offers to a zoo

My boyfriend and I loved this exhibit! There are tons of alligators to see and so many other kinds of animals, such as Lemurs, talking birds, huge turtles and lots of reptiles. There are also shows where you can touch an alligator or snake, but just watching the alligators was sometimes its own show. We spent hours here and went... More

There are several varieties of birds on exhibit, lemurs, bobcats, hyenas and giant tortoises. They also have albino alligators, and demonstrations.

This made for a fun afternoon. We hadn't be here in several years and it was fun to take my son. He got to touch a baby alligator and turtle. He drew the line at the snake...hee hee. The workers were so informed and happy to answer all of our questions. They were so awesome!

This place is a great place for a rest day. There is a lot of walking but plenty of space to rest and relax for a while. Not terribly expensive so I think it's definitely worth the visit.

20 years ago, we took our kids. They liked it. They had 7 albino gators back then. I remember things being nicer. My husband wanted to see it again so we went. It really has gotten old and more run-down looking. It was very expensive to get in and not worth the money for what you see. They were down... More

We have been visiting Alligator Adventure since it first opened. Our family loves this reptile learning center. The staff is so friendly and knowledgeable. There are always new and exciting exhibits to see year after year.

This is a wonderful place to visit for anyone where you see lots and lots of alligators. They also have the "King of crocs- Utan" a 20 ft Crocodile from Thailand as part of their exhibit. My husband and I also petted a very friendly Galapagos Tortoise, bull snake and a baby alligator. They have Alligator feeding shows in two... More
