I enjoyed my trip to reptile gardens, a HUGE variety of snakes. If you just look through the snakes, your visit will end soon. Take time to read through the amazing facts about the snakes and your trip will be worth while.

I believe my husband enjoyed this more than I did. I just wasn't impressed but with all the roadside signs we had to stop.Nice exhibits but a little boring and drab.The shows were not all great either.Its just not all its cracked up to be.Just my opinion.

I am not a reptile fan, but my 9 year old daughter is. We only spent an hour, because the other kids and dad were in the car (we didn't want to pay for the teenager hate everything girls, so they stayed in the parking lot.) The gator show was awesome, daughter loved the snakes and tortoises and would have loved to stay for the snake show.

A great family experience. The amount of reptiles is overwhelming. Worth the trip just to see the HUGE Australian Maniac. He is unbelievable. The giant tortoises are great for the kids to touch and be near.
