We went there on a very hot day in June. The place was not too crowded and not too many mosquitos either. We had a great time, the kids loved the buggy tour. I would have preferred a place with zoo-alike cages, especially with animals not typical of such a hot area like Arctic Wolves or Grizzlies..

Went here in 2008 and had an awesome experience. Wanted to share the experience with my daughter this year. Drove 4 hours on March 28, 2016 just to find out they only had one guide giving tours because no one else showed up for work. We would have to wait four hours. So disappointed because I was looking forward to... More

Well worth the long drive from our area to show visiting family a slice of Southern Florida. I would recommend the beginning or end of the off season even though you might not see as many gators in hot weather. Popular place. We did the whole tour which takes about 4 hours. The food was great, staff friendly and willing... More

Had fun seeing orange groves and driving out there. Fun airboat. Short wait went during week so we missed some things. Worth it but would have enjoyed more exhibits being open. The experience was worth it

Truly brilliant day out and I recommend it to anybody. Spent all day there and loved every second of it. Gator wrestling was brilliant and you really learn a lot about the gators and the seminole tribe.

Worth a trip. Very helpful staff. Our favorites were the airboat ride and safari wagon ride. The alligator show was great as well. I would give it 5 stars if not for the poor customer service experience when purchasing tickets.
