This has been an attraction since 1902, it is the place where Babe Ruth ball landed in 1818 the world longest home run of 573 feet. There is a lot of history with the is zoo and is an excellent place for kids of all ages.

The staff here were super friendly. They let you hold a small alligator. Nice petting farm with lots of goats and deer. LOTS of alligators of various ages/sizes. They even had wolves and a mountain lion. It was a fun visit. My 13 year old loved it.

This is a horrible, disgusting place. A depressed mountain lion in a cage not big enough for a large dog. Two ragged-looking wolves pacing endlessly in a pen smaller than a garage. Sad ring-tailed lemurs with only a one-foot-long swing to play on. Dozens of alligators piled on top of each other in filthy water only six inches deep. If... More

Great for famly fun. Feed animals and pet some. Got to hold a decent size gator. They were hibernating but plan to return and watch them feed larger gators!

There's really not much to see here, and it's too expensive for what they offer. Save your money, and take a Duck Tour instead!

This is a cute zoo for people who just like goats, sheep, birds, wolves, etcc.. The best was the amount of alligators. Too many to count and holding the baby alligator was great. Staff friendly and nice gift shop.

Does not look like much at all but is super cool. There are wolves, a mountain lion, and many birds. You can hold small alligators and see HUGE ones.The only animal problem is that the cougar could use a little more room. You get to feed sheep, deer, and goats. You can even go into the goat encloser. Purely amazing.

We went to this farm and were disappointed to see the alligators were just crammed up in a very small space. They were just lying there one over the other stocked up in the small enclosures. This place needs to have more space and be maintained better. The staff was friendly though. I would not suggest my friends to go... More

We were able to feed many animals, hold the alligators and learn many fun facts. They gave us plenty of food to give the animals.
