Went with my daughters cheer team for an end of the season get together. The girls had a blast zip-lining. The little zoo was great too. My five year old enjoyed feeding the goats. The animal food was $2.50 a cup. There was a little concession area and the food was reasonably priced. The girls also were able to hold... More

I have taken my grandchildren several times to Gator and Friends. They love it and so do I. It never feels crowded, it is very clean, the animals are adorable and they have a good variety of animals. The kids and I love feeding the animals so we always get several cups of food. There are certain times that they... More

We had a blast. This wasn't a huge place but it had plenty of animals to see/feed. We loved seeing the alligators up close. It was well shaded so it wasn't hot. We had a great time. Doesn't take all day, so that was nice. We really enjoyed our time here!

Gators and friends is s place you don't find everywhere, and its location is convenient for a little side trip off I-20 at the Texas/ Louisiana state line. There is an excellent petting zoo, pony rides, alligator feeding time, and a cool snack bar and gift shop to take refuge in during the hot part of the day. Elementary age... More

First of all WAY too expensive to see some poor gators that are living in horrible conditions... Animal enforcement would have a field day there. Also, if you plan on zip lining... Make sure your dress code fits their standards. Look at all the reviews of this place and the worst reviews are VERY ACCURATE!!

Came here with my husband and 2 teenagers. Wanted to go zip lining, but after paying, and waiting a half an hour, were told no, because my daughter was wearing a skirt. The man was very rude about it. I've honestly never been treating this way over wearing a skirt! Seeing the gators was cool, but not worth the$50 that... More

Management response:

We are very sorry that your visit was not as you would have expected. I will just focus on the zip-lining. We try very hard to accommodate people to go on the zip line but sometimes we have to say no. As an example, we have size and weight limits for patrons. Sometimes children might be the correct weight but... More

We loved our time at Gator and Friends!! What drew us here was the Zipline. We did the larger route(7 zip lines) and I'm so happy we did. This took about 45minutes. I brought a Zipline first timer with me and he had a blast. The guides were amazing. KJ and Victoiria kept us "in-line" and entertained. You need that... More

Great concept for showcasing gators and other animals. Be sure to purchase some food to gove the baby goats, deer, ostrich, camel and other four-legged friends. The shade is a precious commodity though and it gets rather uncomfortable in the heat of the day. Wear sunglasses, hat and sunscreen. Nice air-conditioned area is available for shopping for tee shirts and... More
