Not only will you and your children be learning about reptiles, you will be helping them too. Part of every admission goes to the Crocodile Conservation Institute, which helps save crocodiles and their habitat around the world. The Reptile Lagoon is available to rent for birthday parties, meetings and other special events. And of course, it wouldn’t be South of the Border if we didn’t have a gift shop with lots of cool, funky items to help you remember your visit to the Reptile Lagoon.


Pedroland Park boasts an assortment of fun rides just for the kids. Some of these include the Carousel, SRV Reality Ride (a simulator), Mini-Himalaya, Ferris Wheel, Train, Quadzilla, Antique Cars, Red Baron Airplanes, and Bumper Cars. Pedroland Park also features 2 Championship miniature golf courses – 18 holes each! If you prefer something a little tamer, Pedro’s video game arcade will surely keep you entertained. The El Toro Arcade is located at the base of the Sombrero Tower, with others throughout the complex.


The Sombrero Observation Tower is over 200 feet high and its glass elevator gives riders a full view of South of the Border’s grounds as it glides to the top. The newly painted and renovated tower gives visitors a full 360 degree view of the Carolina countryside. At night, its neon lights glow and twinkle making it look like a sombrero shaped spacecraft!
