Wonderful park, we saw many alligators, an alligator show, we hold a beautiful snake and a baby alligator, it's very safe. The boat trip is very nice but don't expect to see wildlife during the trip, we saw only at the park

This park will hardly take you 2-3 hours to explore. The airboat is a fun experience and the alligator show is the highlight of the park

Loved the air boat ride!!! And the price was reasonable. Short alligator shown afterward and I paid the $3.00 to hold Snappy. Well worth the price.
