Field Trip
To Reptiland

Reptiland has long been known as an educational and recreational resource for schools, organizations, and families. Our world-class, specialized zoo brings guests eyeball-to-eyeball with some of the most misunderstood creatures in an interactive learning environment!

Encounter reptiles and amphibians from around the world on this zoological adventure. Our exciting live shows explore the close-up world of reptiles and amphibians in a way not possible in larger zoos. Friendly experts answer questions and offer students the opportunity to touch various species. During warmer months, tortoises, iguanas, and Komodo dragons venture into outdoor habitats, while seasonal exhibits make each visit unique. With modern indoor exhibits and daily live shows, Reptiland is a year-round destination.

Additional Information

Picnic facilities

We have a few picnic areas throughout the zoo for guests, however, our two pavilions are the only covered picnic areas. They are in high demand during spring and early summer.

Because of this, we reserve the pavilions in 30-minute timeslots, and we do our best to schedule picnic times according to group preferences. These spaces are large, so we may also reserve the same pavilion for multiple groups at one time (based on group size).


Please call ahead to schedule your field trip date and time. Late April, May, and early June are busy times for groups, so we recommend making your reservations as far in advance as possible.

If you want to avoid the crunch of “field trip season,” consider booking a trip in the fall—September and October are great months to visit!


We carry a wide variety of educational books, toys, and other souvenirs perfect for visitors of all ages! We encourage your group to shop!

If you’re short on time, we also offer an order form that can be sent to parents in advance for children to pre-order items with help from our Student Shopper Online Catalog. We fill all the orders during your visit so each child can take home a souvenir without using up any valuable field trip time! For more on this convenient program, ask staff for details when booking your field trip.
