The staff were very helpful and friendly. The attractions were both informative and fun. We plan to return next year to check on our favorite gators !!

I would have to agree with the other people on here that say skip this place and the people are out to make a buck, people not friendly at all and some are very rude. there is another place 1 mile down the road called Cooper Town Airboats, these people are much nicer and enjoy making people happy on their vacations, they also have a small gator you can hold and I dont remember them charging for you taking a picture, we took a pic and it was free! Coopertown takes you out further into the everglades and stops more to look at the gators and birds. I had wanted to do the private tour but just didnt want to spend that much money so I did the regular tour with Gator Park and with Coopertown, Coopertown much much better!!

Worth the ride as we saw alligators (the kids actually held one!) and tropical birds during the airboat ride, which was a lot of fun. Our guide was knowledgable and entertaining, the show about the Everglades and its residents informative (we met a celebrity skunk and had a chance to kiss a frog!), and the birds strolling the grounds and perched in the banyon trees (beautiful peacocks, ducks, and chickens) were fun to watch.

The airboat operator was bored with his job. He probably does these 30 min. rides 20+ times a day. Same tourist questions day after day, no enthusiasm. Very basic wildlife show after. Costs $3 to get a pic. holding a gator. Just ok

This park is ideal for families with young children, if you want to view gators in captivity. The air boat ride was about the most enjoyment I, a man over 45, got out of this visit. One can see a lot more gators in the wild by stopping along 8th street on the way to the park.
