I felt bad for some of the animals housed there. The conditions were filthy, especially in the racoon "exhibit". I'd advise to save your money and go elsewhere to see Alligators.

This is the real bayou experience. See gators crowd around a boat for chicken at lunch time. Eat some fried gator. Feed some goats. Check out the snakes. Cool off with a snow cone. It's all good at this fun park!
