Most of my family really enjoyed this place. The signs about the number of days since an accident and pulling the gator out terrified my daughter. The staff really tried to help tame her fear after...

Our group of 2 families enjoyed our visit. It takes about an hour to go through. It's not high-end, but the exhibits felt accessible. I can't believe how many alligators they had!

This place was incredible!!!!! If you are interested in reptiles you have to visit! You get to be really up close and personal with the reptiles and the employees are extremely friendly and passionate about the animals. When we walked in we were told to make ourselves at home and we were able to hold multiple different animals while we were there! It's clear that the employees really care about what they do and they're interested in learning about the people who choose to visit. You also get to hold an alligator and you get a "certificate of bravery" for doing so! If I was native to Colorado I'd be at the reptile park all the time!
This place is great! The staff are all super nice and chill. You’re able to buy a large bucket of gator food for really cheap and feed most of the animals there. It’s a really hands on experience. Not only are their gators, but many different kinds of reptiles, tortoises, birds, fish, and a bunch of really nice cats to feed and/pet. I came here from Colorado Springs, I’d really recommend this place and it’s totally worth the drive.
