Great place for children while adults shop!

Grandpa and our five year old grandson enjoyed the many different sea creatures while we shopped! It was really great to find something for kids to do in this area.

Wonderful to see someone looking after these incredible animals, and a really fun attraction. Very cheap ($6) to get in and interesting to hear about the alligators from the owner. We paid another $10 to hold one which was great fun! Would recommend a visit if you're nearby - we stumbled across it after looking around the shops downstairs.

She loved it. Gators galore and the kid was able to pet turtles. Also feels good to donate to wildlife as the money spent goes to taking care of the animals. Even have a tropical fish aquarium in back and some iguanas that kids get to see up close. Very friendly staff makes the gator holding fun.

Went to the Alligator Attraction in March 2017 with the kids (Age 14 & 8) my mother and Aunt. Price was very reasonable - About $5 each. The owner gave us a tour and shared some interesting facts about the alligators. Kids got to hold a small gator, pet a large turtle (tortoise), and hold some other reptiles throughout the... More

Kids ranging in age 9-16 had a blast holding the alligators and getting their picture taken. Even got to kiss the alligator!

We stopped with two small kids,3 and 6, entrance fee was 6&5 $, you had to pay extra for holding a gator, which was so worth it! A lot of education we obtained by listening to staff explain everything. As adults we were very happy about learning opportunities we received, while kids had lots of fun interacting with animal expositions.... More

Go and hold one too. That 10 bucks extra but worth it. We are a family of 5 (7, 15, and 17). Everyone loved it.

This was a lot of fun. Especially for someone that loves alligators and crocodiles. I would love to go back and possibly take my nephew. I feel like children would have a much better time here than adults would, however, I had a wonderful time during my visit. But that's coming from a big kid.
