Great day with our daughter and grandsons who are 7 and 9. It exceeded my expectations....the buggy ride had lots of animals and info about the Seminole Indians. It was drive through safari....and the airboat ride was fun. A buffalo was cooking off in the swamp, more fun than the aligators! Then there were the Critter Show and the Snake...

The tours and shows were fantastic and ran on time with not too much wait in between events. (Ask for Andrew for the air boat ride and Kyle for the swamp buggy ride). The critter show was also very interactive. My family thoroughly enjoyed the outing.

Airboat tour was fantastic! Guide was great! While waiting you can see all the animals. Way off the beaten path but go early so you don't have to wait as long for the tours. Only reason I gave on less star was the lines to pay was painfully slow. Ask for the AAA discount to save 10%!

I can't say enough about this place! everything is so well organized if you plan to use their facilities as a school field trip.

I took my scouts from pack 180 and we did the all day package and it was incredible. The was friendly and all members were very knowledgeable. The kids and adults enjoyed everything from buggy rides, airboats, snake show to the critter show. Lots of new exhibits and great food as well. Keep up the work. Highly recommend.

My daughter and I went on Sunday to the Seminole Fair. It was wonderful and the food was yummy. Paid a visit to to museum which was first class and quite new. The history of the tribe is very interesting and well presented. Then we took a short ride to have an airboat ride which included a tour. Out driver...

We went there on a very hot day in June. The place was not too crowded and not too many mosquitos either. We had a great time, the kids loved the buggy tour. I would have preferred a place with zoo-alike cages, especially with animals not typical of such a hot area like Arctic Wolves or Grizzlies..

Went here in 2008 and had an awesome experience. Wanted to share the experience with my daughter this year. Drove 4 hours on March 28, 2016 just to find out they only had one guide giving tours because no one else showed up for work. We would have to wait four hours. So disappointed because I was looking forward to...

Had a wonderful time with my nieces that were visiting from North Carolina, they had a fantastic time. There was no waiting we did the airboat buggie ride and boardwalk. They loved feeding the animals.

Well worth the long drive from our area to show visiting family a slice of Southern Florida. I would recommend the beginning or end of the off season even though you might not see as many gators in hot weather. Popular place. We did the whole tour which takes about 4 hours. The food was great, staff friendly and willing...
