“It's worth a look to see the Gators”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012 via mobile

This place was a bit tired and clearly we were there in off season.
The shop was lifeless and the prices were high.
We did go through to the Aligator show, museum and village but it was hard to know this was on as I think the prices vary depending on the season and look of the customer. (We paid $10 per adult and $6 per child)
Most of the attractions inside were dormant with nothing happening but the Aligator handler tried to put on a show. We wAtched for 20 minutes with about 15 others while the gators were bullied and then got to hold a baby one for photos.
Good value in the end but I suspect prices may be much higher during peak season.

“I feel I wasted my money; not much entertainment...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

High priced and plain boring. The kids didn't enjoy at all.
We actually expected a more instructive entertainment and a real Miccosukee doing the demonstrations but, that wasn't the case.

“Kitsch”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Too friend from Europe there. It was all phony, from the airboat ride to the gift shop. A major wast of time. They had all the things set up-- a fake Indian village on an island with an alligtor just happening to be just in view. Give me a break!

“Interesting and Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

The Village is an interesting place! Try and visit when one of the festivals is going on. When we visited, we were entertained by Dancers from all over the country. Try eating some exotic Gator meat while you're there!
