  • We found this place while walking around downtown. The price was okay, 16.00 for two of us, with a military discount. I hadn't seen so many snakes in one place before. We arrived around the time for l...  more »

  • Great place to go. You will either overcome your fear of reptiles or deepen your love for them because the place provides so much to learn about and so many hands on elements. I was in such amazement. Feeding time is something to behold. I would definitively come back but next time with more friends and family. Teachers - great place for students to learn this subject Reptiles (which reptiles are carnivores ,omnivores and. herbivores) Especially for those Tactile and visionary type learners.
  • Great spot to see an amazing display of snakes. Do yourself a favor and see a feeding show. You won't be disappointed. Watching the King Cobra feeding was worth the price of admision.
  • We go here at least once a year and it never gets old. With this years visit we knew it was under new ownership and were not sure what changes to expect. For those who were offended by the signs in the lobby, they are now gone as are the parrots. Although that never bothered me as everyone is entitled to an opinion, and I am there to see the reptiles. I am never any less amazed by the vast collection of snakes they have here. You never have to play where's waldo, as the snakes are always active and moving around the cages, as curious of us as we are them. We watched a feeding this year. It gets cramped and hard to see, but if you get a good spot it is an awesome experience. And they also educate you about the snake as they feed it. People complain of a smell, it is very slight. You are walking into a large facility full of wildlife so it makes sense there would be a scent of them. In all this is one of my favorite things we done when we visit the area. The time and admiration they put into these creatures is obvious, and when else can you say you were less than an inch away from the most deadly snakes in the world and survived to tell it!
  • An amazing place. Scary and wonderful at feeding time--definitely try to go at feeding time. My children love it.
  • Absolutely wonderful reptile sanctuary! Unique opportunity to see many poisonous snakes, huge snakes, crocodiles and much more. Fabulous!!!
