  • It was a great experience seeing so many reptiles in such a small place. There are some petting areas where you are allowed to touch the reptiles gently, which is a pretty unique experience. There are snakes and crocodiles that you can hold on to as well. The staff is very helpful and they don't hesitate to answer questions or explain information. Good for kids as well as adults.
  • Great place to wander through with the kids. Interactive exhibits and gets a little bigger each time we go. Friendly staff are very knowledgeable and happy to share information about the animals.
  • Great for curious little ones. Very friendly staff are regularly bringing reptiles out for pats. More to see and do than it looks from the outside.
  • Great place for organizing birthday parties. Nice activities for kids as well as parents. Can get crowded if many events are going on at the same time. There are many musuems and shops nearby, it may get crowded and difficult to get a parking spot.
  • Interesting place, staff are helpful and owner really cares about the reptiles. Don’t need to spend too much time here though a nice stop through.
