The staff at Reptile Gardens spent the winter getting the park ready for the 2015 season. The Garden Department will have lots of beautiful flowers in the tropical Safari Room on opening day, including some fun new plants like Impala Lilies and Kangaroo Paws.

The Reptile Department has prepared the exhibits and all the snakes, lizards, turtles, crocodiles, amphibians, and bugs are looking good in Sky Dome. Our Giant Tortoises, Quazi, Tank, and Orville are ready to greet visitors to the park and receive some neck scratches.

The Gift Shop and the Jungle Outpost Gallery are filled with fun new T-shirts, lots of spectacular new rocks, fossils, and minerals, and many other items — souvenirs, collectibles, keepsakes, and art works.

The busy season in the Black Hills is from Memorial Day to Labor Day, however Reptile Gardens is open through November.

Reptile Gardens is open for you to visit early in the season, before the crowds, and take advantage of a reduced admission which includes a free season pass to visit anytime you like as many times as you like throughout the season. Make a plan to visit this one of a kind attraction this year and get ready to make memories!
