“Enjoyable activity”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

bought our tickets off the website for $18 each, we also drove ourselves as we had a car. Boat ride every 30mins no real que. We went at about 10am and at this point the park wasnt very busy, 30min boat ride out into the everglades, guide was very good, very knowledgable and good humour. I was a little suspect when he stopped the boat and as if he'd planned it, the aligator swam infront of boat, this was the third time he'd done it, the other times the aligators where asleep though.
After the boat trip there is a animal show, guy had broke his thumb so couldnt wrestle the aligator, I actually thought this part was poor in comparison to sea world/universal animal shows etc. the rest of the park is very small, one pen with baby aligators and another pen with full grown.

“Entertaining and Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

We took the Everglades tour on our own to Gator Park and I couldn't have asked for better. You will hear from hotel concierge that if you drive yourself, and if you pay for it yourself, that you may spend more money because of gas and that the tickets are more expensive.

My partner and I drove our rental to Gator Park (about 45 minutes drive) and we paid $18.00 for our tickets (each). Buy the tickets online from their website and you get the $18.00 deal. We did not spend that much in gas, so, if you already have a car and a GPS, avoid spending $40 or $60 per person to go on a bus to the Everglades.

Our tour guide on the boat was great and the Gator show was very funny. Definitely something you have to do

“Nice air boat ride”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

The air boat rides are fun. The captain was funny and the scenery was nice.
The show at the park was very poor and there was no gator wresling as promised.
The service at the cafeteria was great and the food was ok.

“Beautiful Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

Great for nature lovers & family adventures. The boat ride was nice for the family. It went slow so it didn't scare the little ones. The captain was very knowledgable.
