Love the wild birds!
Amazing place, especially for photographers! The kids seemed to be having a great time watching the Gators, but the wild birds nesting above them are truly a spectacle. Thanks so much to the friendly staff.
I was amazed at all the alligators, crocodiles, exotic birds & animals. You could easily spend several hours here. They also have a nice snack bar with free pop refills & lots of items for lunch. We bought several cute items at the gift shop also.
Park is very clean with easy viewing of the animals. The staff is very friendly and informative. You can also get some interesting views by taking the zip line/obstacle course.
