Where are we going today?

Come on get SNAPPY at Alligator Adventure! Spend the day surrounded by amazing creatures - not only the reptile variety (although you will be sure to see HUNDREDS of them!)

Alligator Adventure is an amazing facility for those animal lovers. It's a place where you can come face to face with some of natures more beautiful and fiercest creatures - what a cool experience!

Did you know that Alligator Adventure was also one of the largest reptile centers in the WORLD! You know there is lots to see then!

We said that you will experience so many animals, and not just the reptiles, so let us tell you a little bit about them! From those African beauties like the serval, to the playful Marmosets. You can get up close to those bouncing kangaroos from Down Under, and look at all the stunning colors of the macaws. 

The slow and grand tortoise is waiting to say hello, and the excitable warthogs are ready for their picture to be taken!

Now of course, it wouldn't be called Alligator Adventure without those snappy alligators and crocs, would it! Kids can learn all about the various species of reptiles, as well as the personalities and habitats that these creatures live in.

There are literally HUNDREDS of gators that the children can experience, and some can get pretty huge! Even up to 13 ftt in length. Can you imagine how many people it would take to lift a 600lb alligator, because that's how heavy they can get! 

With alligator live feedings, snake handling and alligator handling, there is so much for the family to experience at this very SCALY day out in South Carolina!

    Best place in the Myrtle Beach area.
    If you have kids or are a fan of alligators this is the place to go. The park is clean, the animals are awesome, the staff is very friendly. Its worth the price. I recommend buying your tickets online, they give you a discount on tickets. If you don't have a printer its ok, all the need is the conformation number and your I'D. Do write the conformation number down because they don't email it to you like you would think. The best part is the second day free thing they do. Gives you plenty of time to see everything....Read More

    The alligators were amazing and the 2 shows we saw were great. The lizards, turtles, and snakes were also great. But I saw one thing that broke my heart so I had to rate the place lower than I would have. The pen they have the Bobcats in is just too small. It couldn't be more than a 10 foot round diameter cage. It contained 2 Bobcats and they were walking in circles around the perimeter of the cage and pacing back and forth. They are showing all the signs of being psychotic. This can happen to animals in a small cage. I hope the Alligator...Read More

    Horrible staff. We actually only saw three staff members while we were there and two of them went out of their way to be rude to people.
    To start off at the ticket widow, I walked up to the lady with cash in my hand and anxious children at my side. The price was two dollars per ticket higher than advertised on their website. Since I was paying for six tickets, I asked why the difference? She stated the website was wrong and they have been meaning to change that. My reply was that is bait and switch and they should give people the advertised price....Read More

An absolute thing to do if visiting the MB area. Love this place, I will be back the next time we go on vacation here.

Since I was paying for six tickets, I asked why the difference? She stated the website was wrong and they have been meaning to change that. My reply was that is bait and switch and they should give people the advertised price. She got on radio with the manager and then pointed out that the price is if you buy online only. It took me a couple minutes to buy the tickets online with my smart phone but it was worth it to save $10. She found my frustration with the whole thing very amusing but I don't hold a company 100% responsible for one bad employee. As we started into the park, we came upon the next staff member arguing with a poor woman trying to take in a group of adults with down syndrome. Apparently she could not find the receipt showing she had payed for everyone. Once she found her receipt, it was my family's turn to get harassed. According to him I was given the wrong type of receipt at the ticket window. After going back and forth a couple times we eventually got it sorted out and we were permitted to enter Alligator Adventure park.
