    Not only was this enjoyable, it was educational. There is no shortage of alligators and crocodiles. Reading the placards along the walkaway gives you some insight into the good work being done to keep...  more »

    Last day in the Sunshine State and thought we would give this place a try. Turned out to be really cool and interesting. Lots of Gators (main reason why we came) and other wildlife, especially birds. Had no idea there was so much to see inside. Would have hung around longer but it was so hot that getting in the water with the Gators started to sound like a good idea so we left. Would highly recommend for people trying to kill time before the flight home.

    What a cool place! Best deal is the long course zip lining. 67 bucks for a 2 hour zip line and challenge course and it includes the entry for the park when your done so you can see the rest of the park. The zip line allows you to see parts of the park that you can't see walking through it. I will without a doubt do this again next time I'm in st augustine.

    Neat exhibits. Animals appear to be WELL cared for. Sky walk obstacle courses (1 hr and 2 hr options). Nice gift shop. Shaded walkways. Food court with refillable souvenir cup options.

    The kids loved it. Nice walk and plenty of animals to keep the interest. Gift shop had reasonable pricing and a decent selection. There are informational shows as well as the favorite feeding time show. Great value and a lot of fun for all.

    Decent place with A LOT of gators and a few other animals. Plenty of parking. Very informative lectures, somewhat helpful placards on animal displays. Think of it as a small specialty zoo for gators and a few other critters and you won't be disappointed!
