Love this place. Great reptiles here. If you're going to Mt. Rushmore, this is a must see!!! It's great for couples and families.

Best part is the tortoise you get to touch and pet. The have a lot of reptiles and nice flower garden but don't think its worth the price to get in.

The Alligator show is the best . The guy was funny and informative. So many different types of snakes. The giant tortoises were awesome. A must see place.

This was my second visit to Reptile Gardens and it was even better than the first. There is so much to do and see. I wanted to go back the very next day. On your way out through the gift shop one of the cashiers will give you a free pass to return if you still have your receipt. We got a free season pass because we live fairly close by. Don't miss out on the fun at the crocodile show, the bird show, and the snake show.

This is a world class reptile experience, not some roadside attraction. The exhibits are well maintained and the animals seem very well cared for. The shows are informative and fun, even for the kids. The grounds are immaculate and the restrooms are clean!
