Great place for people for all ages. A lot of families visited that place with their young kids & elderly people. What I loved the most was that they didn't charge an entry fee. There sure were a lot of alligators. I visited on a sunny day so they were all out to soak in some sun. Also saw the Albino (white) alligator. The whole trip took almost an hour to hour n half and was very enjoyable. Wouldn't mind visiting again with my parents. 😊 Encourage parents with young kids to visit this place, you'll have a good time!
Munch, our waiter at Fudpuckers, did a fantastic job at making sure we had everything we needed /despite/ also being understaffed and getting busy. Not only that, the cooks did an phenomenal job at cooking our food!! The meat was exactly how I wanted it and the fries were seasoned well! The entire experience was so much fun. We went here after our VIP experience at Gator Beach with Trey and Chris and it was such a good way to end it with such good food. The VIP experience was very fun! We were able to feed the gators and learn a lot about them, it is a bit expensive but it is worth every penny in my opinion. I study herpetology for fun and they were still able to teach me new things and the one on one interactions and close ups was such a once in a life time experience! They spent a lot of time teaching us about the actual safety and dangers of gators to help people who were afraid of them in general know that they pretty much mind their own business and the dangers are a lot due to you messing with them and harassing them! It was reassuring that they were trying their best to help end the stigmas around gators and reptiles in general! I'm from Central, Ohio and don't come down often but I definitely will stop by again if I'm every in town again!
Such a cool place! First off, it's free admission. There are alligators all throughout the water and they're very entertaining to watch! You are able to feed them (safely from a distance - with a large pole) for a cost of $5 per bag of food. That seemed a little steep but, again, no admission charge so no complaints. We were told they have shows so we waited around to see one but it got cancelled or changed at the last minute and they didn't tell anyone. We all just stood there waiting until we realized there wasn't any show at that time. Disappointed about that but at least I got to feed them. Had a great time overall.
Place is cozy but packs punch. Gator feeding is big one. Pictures with gator is good so is museum and cafeteria is lively and keeps kids engaged for hours. In house restaurant has staff keeping kids busy with games and dancing, while parents can sip beer and relax. Its ton of fun for kids and families together.
This place is incredible! We did the VIP experience & helped open the park. We got to feed all the alligators, from the scaly babies to the 6 footers. Our park attendant Chris gave an amazing tour with plenty of humor & a wealth of information. We got to hold both a hatchling & a 2 footer named Loki, and even got pictures holding them! We did not get a chance to eat at the restaurant, however we will absolutely be back!
