We went here for my 32nd birthday!!! We had a blast!! Will go back next time we are in town! Hoola hoops, alligators and great drinks!!!

This is a must visit place for families with kids! The atmosphere is so fun there. Feeding the gators at “gator beach”, hold a gator and take a pic, fun drinks, good food, play area.. it’s a great time! The atmosphere and entertainment is definitely the draw but depending on what you get, there is some great food and drinks there as well. We visited twice in a week because my kids loved it so much. The hot crab dip is SO good. Look online for a free coupon.

Be aware, this place is SO BUSY all times of the day, so expect a wait! BUT while waiting, ask about their Scavenger Hunt! While waiting you can feed the 'Gators for $3, take a pic and hold a 'Gator for $10, grafitti your family's name somewhere on the walls or decking, walk and read facts all about the 'Gators, even walk through and see a small exhibit area with an albino 'Gator!! By the time you look at everything, it is pretty much time to eat! The food was incredible, even for those that don't do seafood!
