A good way to waste away an evening with some laughter and the thrill of hermit crab sprinting. The Crabby Man at the mic has good crowd banter and keeps the entertainment fun for the family.

We attended the hermit crab races held here since we were staying at the resort. Went to the 9pm show. The man who rMuns the races is very funny but in my opinion he should eliminate using the "F" word. He would have been just...More

Must come with your sense of humor intact. If you aren't easily offended by a little language and personal ridicule you will find this can be uniquely entertaining. I like a good act that can interact with his audience. Sunburned Willie delivered.

Took the kids to the family friendly version over our spring break trip to Tween Waters. My wife and I have seen the adult show in the past, and I even remember attending 20 years ago as a teenager. Well, not much has changed. The...More

The 3 minutes of actual crab racing was fun to watch. The hour plus of the crab host talking and making jokes was painful to listen to. He ruins the experience. He tries too hard to be funny by being rude to people around the...More

As we just finished our 23 year attending the "Crab Races", we could not think of a better way to be entertained and best of all raise money for the local United Way and Veterans. Commissioner Tim is very funny, hard working and committed to...More

We went to one of the early "family" shows. While it was entertaining, it seems the emcee spends most of the evening hawking his t-shirts. Some of the jokes were a bit off-color for a family shown and at times the emcee was downright mean...More

Its not often (or ever) I get to see crab races. The reviews online were/are all over the map. Here is the truth. The show runs about an hour and started around 6:30ish maybe a little before. The pregame probably started at 5:45 where people...More

It's fun to watch the crabs and listen to the announcer guy. We were at the family one, but I heard he gets pretty raunchy at the adult one. We were there once for that but didn't stay long. You can only take so much...More
