Alligator Adventure, North Myrtle Beach

(4.3/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
In addition to its namesake creatures, Alligator Adventure hosts an array of animals, such as beavers, tigers, reptiles, and more. Wander the center, as much a zoo as an alligator park, and visit the exhibits featuring native and non-native creatures. Don't miss the shows, including live alligator feedings and lessons in alligator and snake handling. You'll not only have the chance to admire American alligators, but also an albino alligator, a Chinese alligator, and even a crocodile. Check the website for information about feedings, show times, and special ticket offers.

  • It's a neat experience but a little pricey for the amount of attractions they have. They try really hard to dress it up and do a great job with the property. I was here over 10 years ago and there have been numerous improvements. We dragged our feet walking around, touring the place and made sure we caught all of the shows. Total time in park a little over three hours, including several breaks killing time waiting for the next show. Not sure the second day free return admission is worth it unless you get rained out.
  • I've been to one other Aligator park and Alligator Adventure is no Gatorland down in Florida, but let me tell you what Alligator Adventure is. Alligator Adventure is super clean and the animals look well fed and happy. The park is small and the shows are pretty simple and informative rather than being entertaining. Alligator Adventure offers pay for one day and get the second day free but you can tour the whole park in 2 hours or less and I couldn't see anyone wanting to go back the second day. It was $40 + for two adults and we were there for less than a hour and a half. We walked the entire park and saw all the animals and watched the feeding of one of the gators. This is a one time experience so get the family together and check out Alligator Adventure every couple of years.
  • A disappointment all together. For 2, it was almost $50.00 and you would think it would've been more interesting than walking and then walking some more. They offer you a free 2nd day, but like a prior reviewer stated, you can do the park in a couple of hours, why go back? We declined the offer. There was big highlight and it was the big gator. He was breathtaking in person. Otherwise I came, I saw and it will remain a memory. But please try it for yourself, as this was just my opinion.
  • We had a blast. The people that worked theyre were friendly. And one guy was super hot. Haha. The shows were cool and interactive my 3 year old loved it. The animals seemed extremely healthy active and Happy unlike other zoo type places ive been. We went back for the free second day to see utan be fed. It was amazing.
  • Evenings in the late summer aren't too crowded and seem a little cooler. We come with the kids every year. The alligator feedings and reptile handling shows are fun.
