We had a very long layover at Miami airport (10 hours!). My boss had mentioned this place as a way to kill some time. It was perfect! We got there at opening time. Once we got in the gate we were offered the option of getting some pictures taken of us with a baby gator, parrots, etc. We had them all taken, and ended up buying a few poses on the way out. I was surprised at how good they came out.
We were able to walk around a bit then hit every single one of the shows. The shows are SO worth making it to. We were there on the same day as a lot of summer camps, but it didn't seem crowded once we were inside, and we easily found spots for all of the shows.
My 8 year old loved all of the parrots. You could walk right up to their perches and feed them. It was great! The whole place had shade, neat walkways through the palm trees and water, amazing shows, plenty of food and drinks to choose from, and a great gift shop at the end to pick up gifts and pictures. We spent about 6 hours here and have nothing but good things to say about the place.
