Admission is good for up to six guests at The Alligator Attraction. Visitors feed 15-30 inch gators up to four pieces of turkey hot dogs with fishing poles off of a bridge, and are also allowed one group- or one individual-hold of a large gator. The Alligator Attraction runs every day from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., but hours may change subject to seasonal availability.

The Alligator Attraction

It turns out baby alligators are pretty cute when there's no chance they're going to bite you. That's what people learn when they visit the Alligator Attraction, where they feed the seven-inch creatures from a safe distance by dangling fishing poles off an overhead bridge. Visitors can also come in for a closer interaction by handling the gators, cradling them in their arms and smooching their snouts. These animals are much larger—the center's 50 gators grow as large as seven feet long—but the interaction is still safe because the gators' jaws are securely taped shut.

There are other animals to behold and interact with, too. Visitors feed koi fish from baby bottles, and they line up to greet rescue animals such as Becca the Australian blue-tongued skink and Rudolph the 95-pound African spur thigh tortoise. Outside of the small zoo, personnel bring The Alligator Attraction's titular reptiles to pool parties to swim around with guests and gossip about the neighbors as much as they can with their mouths bound.
