That's right, most episodes are filmed right here in our world-famous Everglades park filled with Alligators! Everglades Holiday Park is known the world over as the best attraction in South Florida for experiencing the thrill of an exhilarating ride through this natural wonderland. Our safe airboat excursions will take you out into the open Everglades where we fly over the sea of grass, the sawgrass river. Then we stop at strategic spots to allow our guests (like you) to quietly observe the amazing alligators and other wildlife here in this pristine setting. « less

Something different to do besides shopping or going to the beach when visiting Fort. Lauderdale. Saw two small gators in the wild so that was a plus! Also at the end you get to see a live show with bigger gators so it was very nice.

We have been to the Everglades on three separate occasions and thought our first airboat ride was good, but this was the best. It's not cheap, but what tourist attraction is these days. We saw the ad for the Park in our Hotel's guest information, and there was a coupon in it saving a couple of Dollars each. Cost for... More

We went on Saturday 10/18. We bought our ticket and the wait to get on the airboat was only a few minutes. They appear to have enough boats to keep up with the demand. The ride was fun. We saw about a half a dozen gators. Saw a bunch of birds. The boat pilot explained what we were seeing and... More

While attending a family reunion, a group of us cousins went to this attraction. Yes, it is very touristy, but still enjoyable. The airboat ride was pretty nice, although not as "wild" as one would imagine. You are travelling down canals and maybe accelerate for only a minute or two. We did see alligators in the wild, so that was... More

We purchase our tour rather spur of the moment via Royal Caribbean Cruiseline. We were just looking for something to do between disembarking and catching our flight home as we had several hours to wait. We didn't do any research prior to booking other than read a tri-fold brochure that was given to us at the ship's information desk featuring... More

Weekends have been packed for years now, but if you can go during the week, its a good place to unwind and see nature.

As a huge Gator Boys fan i had to visit the park! We drove down from Orlando and stayed over at Fort Lauderdale. I kept my expectations low, as in an ideal world i would have loved to see Paul and Jimmy but knew that was unlikely. We visited on a thursday and it seemed to be fairly quiet which... More
