  • Very unique experience to drive through the many reptiles and dinosaurs, fixed or moving with sound while you are in Peterborough. Kids will love it even more!  more »
  • What a great place to drive through, it isn’t a long drive through maybe 20 min but it’s great for the kids, they sure put a lot of work in to the Dinosaur display,  more »
  • My 3 year old loved this place! There was a variety of things to keep him interested and engaged for well over an hour. He was particularly fascinated by the animatronic dinosaurs which were a very fun element and kept him entertained. We could have stayed longer and played mini putt but it was pretty warm out and it was in full sun.
  • Awesome stop! This is an accredited zoo which means their animals get amazing care from prone who know what they are doing and you are guaranteed to learn about some crazy cool reptiles. All of these animals are rescues or surrenders, meaning of you are an animal lover, this facility is doing the right thing for these animals even no one else can ❤️. Great habitats, so many species to see, great for all ages. Go here and support reptile rescue/get informed before you think about adding a routine to your family 🐍
