“Fun for kids more than adults”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

As everyone else I watch Gator Boys with my grandsons and wanted to visit the park. My husband and I decided to drive out and see it. It was 49.50 for two which included the hour airboat ride and the Gator Show. The airboat ride was quite fun and we saw about four gators during the ride. They come up to the boat and that is because they are fed, but that's fine with me because the kids on our ride loved it. The gator show, was pretty cheesy. I feel they could have done a lot more, it was only about ten minutes long and not exciting at all. The only staff that seemed happy to be there was our airboat driver and the guy that did the show, the cashiers never smiled once and the gift shop girl ate the whole time we were in there. Overall, the only way I would return is if I took my grandson because he is such an animal lover.

Me and my friend went in April. It was pooring on our airboat ride. Saw my first aligator. Got to hold one to. My friend got to sit on a huge gator. Show was interesting. Kind of pricey.

“Don't spend hard earned vacation time on this place”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

Do NOT spend your hard earned vacation time on this venue. Find another. The boatride was ok if one has never tried this kind before, but if you are there to see alligators : go somewhere else. The "asking" for tips everywhere annoyed me, and I did not feel like tipping a boatdriver that got mad because a small child interrupted her very important speach about snakes.

The gatorboys show after the boat ride.... - we left that's just a cheap sideshow! Where I'm from it's animal cruelty.

“Adventure on an airboat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

Loved seeing the alligators in the wild. Also enjoyed the variety of birds. For a person who likes bird watching this is a good trip. Also enjoyed the alligator show.
