Reptile World in now closed

While the site itself needed improvement, Reptile world had an impressive array of critters to delight. Unfortunately, due to funding issues - this attraction is now closed.

Unfortunately, Reptile World is NO Longer Open in Drumeheller and Hasn't been for Quite Awhile. Drumheller has Other Great Attractions you will enjoy, just the Reptiles are Gone. Thanks

Little pricey because anything you do is all broken down into seperate prices. All we did was a mineral dig. Good family outing.

there are tons of reptiles to see. The displays are plain but there are so many different reptiles it makes up for the facility being so plain. We were lucky enough to get to pet a snack when we were there!

The collection of reptiles was quite impressive and the staff very knowledgeable and interactive ( the kids got to hold and pet a snake) however-It was a dump! The ceiling was falling in, water stains everywhere, but the cages seemed clean and animals well cared for. We enjoyed seeing them but cant imagine this place being around for long. Would... More

Basic little park that follows the theme of the town famous for dinosaurs. The Tyrrell museum is the big draw and the best part of the city. If you are a dinosaur enthusiast, be sure to do the museum

Appropriate for the area, going into this attraction you will be able to view many different types of reptiles. My favorite were the alligators. Many varieties, quite interesting. The staff are informative.

Good way to see some reptiles. All behind glass but the keepers do bring snakes out for you to hold if you are so inclined to do so.
