“Love the Swamp Buggy Races”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2012

I have been going to the Swamp Buggy Races for a looooong time. I used to never miss a race since my son was 5 he is now 30. But since getting remarried I don't get to go like i used to. We always like going back in the standing romm only arfea and park and cook back there.

“Muddy Fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2012

If you are a motorsports fan and staying in Naples, you have to visit this unique branch of the sport. They only have three meets a year, October, January and March and this is the only swamp buggy track in the World. Easy to check out the amazing racers in the paddock, the crowd maybe on the red neck side but good humoured and here is a decent grandstand. The Jeeps race together but the Pro-Modified race in pairs drag style with knock out eliminators . Stay until the end and see the Race Queen thrown into the "Sippy Hole" by the winner. It's traditional apparently. certainly a fun day out.

“Everyone should see this once!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2012

Think Transformers meets mud wrestling. Some very interesting and unique vehicles going over, under and through lots of mud. Mud covered drivers...some emerging from beneath mud ponds...literally covered from head to toe in mud. Top it off with the Swamp Buggy Queen, dressed in a formal gown, being thrown into a pool of mud. Glad I saw it, but once was enough.
