I wanted to go to the alligator park and went with a friend. I was a bit underwhelmed. The feeding show was very interesting and it was fun to see such massive alligators. The park itself is much smaller than it seems. As it was in August it was extremely hot outside and frankly a bit smelly in the park.... More

We went near the end of the season. The feeding session is our favorite part. Those guys tell a wonderful story and the alligators are big, hungry fellows.

There were four of us, all adults, and we all really enjoyed walking around the many exhibits and having our picture taken with the alligator. The most fun was the feeding time show. The eerie music begins and alligators of all sizes begin to appear in the murky water. A "MUST SEE"

The alligator park was slightly disappointing to our family. The kids did have fun in the gift shop and getting to hold a small alligator, but a lot of areas were closed during our visit due to some sort of electrical issue and there really just wasn't much to do. We were planning to have lunch there so the kids... More

We got to see the alligators being fed, but they had fewer shows than advertised. Lots of opportunities to see alligators in various settings. We loved seeing the baby alligators! They also had lots of other interesting animals: deer, goats, miniature horses, snakes, etc.

Even my 2 year grand children LOVED this place! You can hold an alligator (if you nervy enough). You can feed them also. Have camera ready.

The Alligator Park was a nice little adventure for our young children. The park is small and seems to be well maintained. In addition to the varied areas to see the Alligators there are other small animals to see and feed (goats, miniature horses, turtles, etc). The "feeding show" was difficult to hear, however watching the amazing alligators feed was... More

The park isn't very big and you can see everything in a couple of hours. There are alligator feedings every hour or so and anyone visiting the park should watch one of these. The barricades and fences seem adequate to keep visitors and alligators apart but parents need to keep a close eye on small kids. There are small animals... More
