    Bought tickets for the above due to a special offer and was not disappointed. We have been to Florida numerous times over the last 26 years yet had never visited this park before. We thoroughly enjoyed the airboat ride and saw so many alligators that we lost count! There were also lots of other wildlife to be seen too. On dry land again we walked around the animals on display and then had lunch courtesy of the onsite cafe. We rounded our day off on the drive-through safari which, again, enabled us to take some wonderful photos. A thoroughly enjoyable day and one which we shall repeat. The buying process was, as per usual with AttractionTickets, a simple process and no problems with exchanging our downloaded confirmation for 'physical' tickets. Sadly I miss the 'physical' tickets from AttractionTickets and the wallet that used to be sent out which were/are so useful. Each of our family now has their own personal AttractionTickets wallet for travel documents, and many other uses too.
