Don’t expect to see any wildlife. It’s basically a loud boat ride on a river. If anyone on the boat is scared , it will ruin any sort of fun for everyone else. The captain was nice.

We had a great time. This was our first airboat ride and I was very impressed. My 9 year old daughter loved it. Note: there is a elementary school right before you turn on their street. If you find yourself in the car rider line, go around them. That may cause you to miss the ride.

Wasn’t worth the money!! It was like a normal boat ride, not a airboat ride. We went in the marsh for maybe two minutes

We are so sorry you did not feel that the airboat ride you went on was like an airboat ride. Thanks for the feedback.
