Atchafalaya Welcome Center

We are featuring a special movie in our theater and showcasing five artisan videos in another exhibit area. In order for visitors to enjoy the new exhibits we have temporarily turned off the beloved stage animal production. Visitors can stop by 361 days a year from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm for tourists information and to view our upgraded exhibits.

Unfortunately, turning off the robot animal show diminishes the oddball appeal of this attraction. We hope to hear about a happy future when the animals come out of hibernation!

According to a staff member, the robo-puppets are turned off from January to March. The puppets are supposed to be the pre-show to the movie. The staff is working on getting the movie door to open after the puppet show is finished.

The puppets are realistic, but singing, animals: a raccoon, snapping turtle, and alligator.

Robopuppets are fixed, and the short show includes black light effects. Plus, free coffee!

Swamp scene.

The animals don't move anymore, but still a fun stop...

A sad comment on our times when we can no longer maintain robot swamp critters.

Animatronic Swamp Puppet Show

This was a perfect pit stop for the kids. It is very clean and safe, with workers there 'round the clock. There is a room where you can watch a five minute movie, which plays every 15 minutes, and also a show with animatronic animals that talk and sing. Outside, in back, there are alligator, bird, and turtle statues where my kids played.

Grab a free cup of coffee and enjoy this rest stop.
