    We love it! Our kids love the giant tortoises the most, but enjoy the whole place really. We use the season pass at least 4 times a year, and they never get tired of visiting. Thanks for such an educational, fun attraction for our family!

    Amazing and cool animals. Maniac the Alligator was awesome I got a video of him moving around! The Komodo Dragon and Gila Monsters were cool to. I loved all the different types of snakes. Reptile Gardens is awesome!

    My 16-year-old daughter loved, loved, loved this place. Lots of exotic and rare snakes. The jungle dome was amazing, but even more exciting was being able to interact and touch giant tortoises. The alligator/crocodile show was top-notch, informational and entertaining. The flower gardens were beautiful. A really good experience.

    A little spendy but it was fun. You have to do the shows to make it worth it. The do take it a couple poisonous snakes which is exciting. A staple of the black hills area tourism.
