  • The building is a mouldy smelling shed, with some dodgy ramps down to a display of venomous snakes. It's sad to see the snakes in such small enclosures when there is so much empty space in the lower a...  more »
  • We visited the venom zoo and it is a big dirty dark shed. Opened 30mins late. Communication from the staff was incorrect regarding snakes. Extremely disappointed  more »

  • Don't waste your money... It's very crappy and takes about 5 mins to look at everything. Very unprofessional.
  • I really enjoyed my trip to the venom zoo. I'm from England and we have absolutely nothing like this. Some of the snakes there were very Interesting and rare. Included with the admission price you get a free photo with a snake. The spiders and scorpions were very cool. Definitely worth $10
  • The young curator was nice enough. Then the owner started to openly berate and abuse him in front about 8 of us. Felt for the kid. Owner was incredibly unprofessional and downright abusive. I actually had to tell him to settle down because it was making everyone uncomfortable. He completely ruined our experience
  • My family and I went to this Zoo today and we were excited to see some reptiles in the flesh that we haven't before. The two ladies that took us on a tour and let us hold a snake out the front were brilliant!! They were full of knowledge and were extremely professional. The sad news is our experience was tainted by the owner. I think his name was Stu... He was publicly rude to both his employees. I'm confused as to why he did this in front of us, the customers when it could have been done in private. The girls were doing a great job and he had a 'power trip' and this almost ruined our experience. I would give 5 stars purely to the girls, and Stu gets one.
  • Owner is a disgusting narcissist with questionable behaviour toward women and staff. Cons people into thinking this place is a venom zoo when it is actually a run down filthy little man cave with some unfed spiders and a couple of snakes. Stay clear as the guy is extremely dodgy, I would be wary of taking young children there to say the least.
