  • What a fantastic place. Spent about two and a half hours there today with my wife and kids. We all enjoyed walking through the dinosaur display and the rest of the zoo. The entire facility was very clean and well maintained. All the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend to anyone visits the area. .........
  • Great for the whole family. A real live zoo with many, many aninals. Make sure you check the schedule for the various educational shows and feedings during the day to keep things interesting. Not only reptiles anymore, but dinosaurs and parakeets are now on display. Very friendly and helpful staff really solidify a world class experience.
  • I really love this place. We've visited Reptiland twice. The layout is a few building with paths outside, of a moderate size. There are indoor exhibits with Komodo dragons, tortoises, alligators (or crocodiles, I don't remember which), and seasonally butterflies. The butterflies are in a greenhouse-like building where they fly around you and you can feed them with a cotton swab for a small cost. It's my favorite exhibit. There are live shows that you can attend. The schedule for the shows is available right near the main counter. You sit in a large room and see live reptiles and have the option to touch them after the show. Hand sanitizer is provided. The animals seem well cared for and the business is aesthetically pleasing, with interesting botanical displays on the paths like bamboo. There is an area you can walk through with very large animated and vocal dinosaur displays. That sounds silly, but even as an adult I enjoyed it. They are very well made.
  • My wife and I stopped here on a whim on the way to Niagara Falls...and this was nearly the best part of the whole trip! The animals are lively and seem very happy, the birds are friendly (including the emu), and the dinosaurs are awesome! This place is great!
  • I had heard stories of this place since I was young and always wanted to visit however being from the Hazleton area it was never in the plans or on the way. I'm now 27 and married and was finally able to visit due to my husband and I being in the area after camping at the KOA (which is beautiful) about 10 miles down the road. It exceeded my expectations! We were both a little skeptical upon entering, but were immediately taken aback by the cleanliness and professionalism. Our first stop was the Alligator exhibit, we had just missed feeding (which was fine by me. Apparently they feed them rats. I have 11 pet rats, lol.) but made it in time for the Q&A. The staff was very knowledgeable and didn't hesitate to answer any questions that were asked. From there, we had about 15 minutes to kill before the next show so we hung out with the turtles for a bit. The next show was the venom exhibit. 💯 The woman that did the show was amazing. It was very obvious that she LOVES her job. Seeing a Pakistani black cobra dance was the most beautifully intimidating things I've ever witnessed. This place is hands down one of the best specialty zoos I've ever been to. I can't wait to visit again!
