Admission Info

2019 Reptile Gardens Admission 

Season Pass

Area residents can revisit Reptile Gardens free of charge all summer long! Just ask for the Season Pass upon your initial visit and you can return any time until November 30. The Season Pass is FREE with your Reptile Gardens admission purchase.

Vacation Pass

If you are just visiting the Hills, ask for our Vacation Pass, which will let you in any time during your stay in the area! The Vacation Pass is FREE with your Reptile Gardens admission purchase.

Birthday Parties

We have a birthday party room near the tortoise yard that can fit up to 20 reptile-obsessed kids. Regular admission rates apply for birthday Guests (if anyone already has a season pass for the year, we will of course honor it). Rental of the room is $50. This fee covers: admission and a  Go Wrestle A Gator T-shirt for the birthday child, use of the room, and a visit from a staff member who will bring along special animal guests that the kids can interact with!

You can decorate and bring food/cake into the room if you wish. Please feel free to explore the park and enjoy the shows as well.

We offer birthday parties 7 days a week when we are open, one in the morning (9-12) and one in the afternoon (1-3). To reserve the birthday party room, please contact us.
