We took our 4 year old granddaughter for her birthday, and it was fabulous. The drive through was exciting as the animals came right to the car, and the treasure hunt map was great to help identify each animal. The walk through part was extremely educational. It is worth every penny of the admission price. We spent about 4 hours at this park. Only thing we didn’t do was the air boats because she was so young but next time we will.

Visited Magic Kingdom and Hollywood studios. We had a great day at both parks, thoroughly enjoyed it. And many attractions can do with wait times of less than 60 minutes. Some queues had wonderful cooling. The parking is on the pricey side, a pity that it is not possible for several days and then with a discount.

We had a lot of fun on this airboat ride. We saw a few alligators and a beautiful sunset. The whole village and restaurant were very interesting and we would Iike to go back and explore some more.

Highly recommended, we all said this was the best activity we did all holiday in Florida, including the rides. Amazing alligators and stunning sunset. Put this top of your list!

Awesome experience! Need to go back to finish touring.
