We have been her a few times. Our kids likes it but to me it was just the reptile part of our local zoo. The alligator show was very entertaining though and our kids got to touch a baby gator.
Pretty expensive but you can easily spend half the day here. They have nice animal shows ( the bird and alligator shows were great). Kids will remember that visit for a life time. They have a giant tortoise that is 109 years old!
Brilliant!! The shows are fab, the dome has a huge reptile collection, we had a fab time!
