“Chomp!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

It ain't cheap...about $23 per person...but it's entertaining and interesting. Dozens and dozens of gators, various species of crocs and caimans, even exotic birds and giant tortoises.
We were pleased with the visit...you can go at your own pace, take pics, check out special presentations, go back to favorite areas, etc. I'd call it a "must visit" spot if you haven't been down South very much. A great chance to see these fascinating creatures in a real habitat, even if somewhat zoo-ified.
As Tony Joe White sang in "Polk Salad Annie" way back in '69:
"Polk Salad Annie, gator's got your granny...chomp, chomp."
Have fun.

“Really fun place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

I don't even love alligators or reptiles, yet this was still such a fun, cool place to visit! Don't let the title mislead you; they don't actually farm animals, they are strictly a wildlife refuge full of alligators, birds, snakes, and so much other wildlife. A great place to visit, whether you have a group of adults or kids. P.S. Don't miss the alligator feeding!

“Worth the Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

I was really reluctant to go due to my memories of visiting another alligator farm in the 1980s. My grandson assured me it was perfectly safe so how could I say no? The park is very clean and well laid out, with a wide variety of creatures to see, including birds & tortoises. All of the alligators and crocodiles are behind secure enclosures but most have plexiglass or see-through fencing so the little ones can see everything. The alligator feelings are at scheduled times & they are a big hit with all ages. There are other shows as well, but the kids were getting tired so we didn't see them. There are also zip lines & other activities for the older & more daring. Surprisingly, I would take my grandchildren back if they wanted to go.
