Great day for the money!

We really enjoyed the swamp buggy and air boat rides! The snake show was very educational and really changed the way I view those creatures.

I am Floridian and yet never visited before now. My Harley-loving husband felt like a Harley ride on Snake Road so we decided to check this out. Snake road goes through the reservation (Seminole Tribe) so the ride itself is pretty interesting to see all the infrastructure of the reservation such as the senior care and the community center.

We did the swamp buggy and the air boat tour. Both were very entertaining and the guides were well informed and interesting characters. The air boat driver let my daughter sit in the captains...

My husband and I went for the all day adventure. From the swamp buggy ride with Kyle as our guide, we saw bison, exotic deer, antelope, water buffalo, zebra and an ostrich. Kyle was knowledgeable about the trees, animals and the area. A critter show allowed us to see several critters (skunk, snapping turtles, capybara and alligator). The air-boat was... More

The airboat ride is a blast. The Swamp buggy is fun and where you'll see most of the animals. The ostrich comes right up to the vehicle. The critter and snake shows are good too
