Fodor's Review

In the valley between Rapid City and Mt. Rushmore is western South Dakota's answer to a zoo. In addition to the world's largest private reptile collection, the site also has alligator wrestling, a raptor show, and giant tortoises. Enjoy more than 50,000 orchids, tulips, banana trees on the grounds and in the giant dome.
