Cool attraction. The coolest thing is all the gators there are rescues who grow bigger here then go to different sanctuaries thru the state. The kids really enjoyed feeding/training the gators. The staff was very helpful and friendly.

Thank you for your response and I withdraw my Oh so wrong opinion. I appreciate these types of exhibits especially when they're educational. I would delete my review, but your rebuttal is so well done, I think it speaks volumes. If I delete my portion, yours would also disappear. Thank you for the great job you do.
