  • What a great place to visit! My husband and I love reptiles so it was fitting that we went here on a date. We will definitely be going back and will allow for more time during our next visit.

  • Went yesterday for my birthday and it was a great time. Well worth the 2 hour drive from Ephrata. Tons of reptiles and shows throughout the day to educate visitors. The snakes we probably my favorite part and all the enclosures were very clean and taken care of. The gift shop was nice as well but did lack sizes for bigger guys. They also had a little eating area if you wanted to have a drink and snacks before hitting the road again!
