We saw the advertising and decided to stop out of curiosity. I love turtles and tortoises and this place had such a great variety of reptiles and some pretty cool dinosaur statues. The animal meet and greets were geared toward little kids with lots of open question time. If you don't have kids, skip the auditorium meet and greet, but... More

My husband had been here many years ago when he was a kid but this time we got to take our kids. The bird room was definitely the neatest part of the zoo. My son loved the snakes and even got to touch one! The dinosaur land was a lot of fun too, much better than similar places we have... More

This is a quaint zoo with a ton of information and hands on opportunities. When I visited with my friends, we got to touch a king snake, I believe, and they told us all about it. The staff here were more than helpful and so willing to teach us about everything there. We learned a lot about the two alligators... More

This visit was a treat for three active boys ages 3, 4 and 5! It was a wonderful experience for all! We started with a quick observation of alligators, snakes and frogs before attending the 10:30 a.m. show. The boys were able to view and touch 3 reptiles. Their favorite was a tie between a small alligator and a boa... More

Because of my son's love for snakes, we decided to have his 7th birthday party at Reptiland. We had the most amazing experience!! We were served by two wonderful young ladies out in the party area.

My 4 kids (ages 10-15) and I were traveling from Michigan to New Jersey and found this gem of a place! We spent about 2 hours here, probably would have been longer if wasn't winter. The hands-on show was a fun learning experience. The Komodo dragon was a favorite. The highlight was probably the parakeet exhibit which was opened for... More

Small, but very interesting. New parakeet attraction was fun. Dinosaur area was surprisingly authentic and fun, especially for young children. Nice pit stop during a long drive.

Totally supposed to be a lark of a stop, my friend and I love dinosaurs and they had a "Walk With Dinosaurs" or whatever thing going on. We fell in love with the entire freaking thing.
