  • Awesome well worth the entry price. Take a packed lunch if you don't want fried food or packaged sandwiches. Photo guy takes photos with your phone or camera and their professional imaging as well. Great service. Warm days, so dress light and bring a hat.

Phenomenal staff and great day. Plan to spend at least four hours here since you will want to attend the croc attack and lagoon tour and everything in between.
