Captain Andy was as amazing as he was knowledgeable. We saw some gators, bald eagle, and my new favorite the snail kite. We zipped and whipped through the narrow and shallow passageways adding to the adventure. I loved just zooming across the open water and having the wind blow in my hair. We came out for my nieces birthday and the whole staff really delivered. We got to take pictures with the shaman, feed the gators and mine for gems!! Everyone from the lovely woman who checked us in at the front gate to retails clerks who helped us shop. It was the best time our family is definitely coming back, since some didn't get to make the trip.

Awesome experience, I traveled with my wife and we both agreed that this experience was more than we expected. You can run out of time before running out of things to do or see. The two pass was the best option for me. The bus tour; the frequency of drop offs and pick ups ensure that we were not stagnant in one place any longer than we wanted.

Its absolutely great, I can not recommend it enough. Unfortunately it shuts at 5pm so get there early and enjoy. Seeing the Saturn Rocket and the Shuttle were high points. The hero area was great. Really loved it here, was sad to see the areas devoted to those that lost their lives and found it really powerful and sobering.

Great experience! The launch simulation was fascinating. The whole park opened our eyes to the challengies faced to accomplish the steps forward in space travel.

It is better to arrive early during the morning to spend the entire day. Lots to see, do, eat and learn. Take the shuttle bus tour package.
