We had such an amazing time at Holiday Springs Park, home of the Gator Boys! First we got to take an airboat tour/ride. I must admit I wasn’t as excited as my husband and children were for this, because I am afraid of gators and the swamp is, well…the swamp!
Well I would like to be the first to say that the Everglades isn’t at all what I had dreamed it up to be, in fact it was just the opposite, it was beautiful! I am so glad I had the opportunity to see such beauty in our own backyard!
If you ask the kids, they LOVED the airboat ride, especially when we went super-fast and even sideways! We saw many alligators, vultures, native birds and beautiful plant life. We saw a nest with baby birds and were even able to feed the bird out of our hands!
We also learned a bunch about the wildlife and their habitat, the airboat guide was full of knowledge and showed us a fabulous time! It lasted about an hour…so worth it!
After our airboat tour we got to see the Gator Boys gator show. We love the Gator Boys and watch the show so we were pumped to see them in person. And while Jimmy and Paul were not there, Chris put on a killer show!
He picked up the gators like babies and held a gator's mouth open with his chin. We would gladly come to see them again and highly encourage you to get your family out there to check them out too! You won't be disappointed. I know we weren't.
Here are the kids thoughts on our visit:
Jayden (age 11)
I really like how they made it fun when they were alligator wrestling. It was a really good experience and good family time.
Logan (age 7)
I saw alligators! The airboat went sooooo fast. My favorite part was seeing alligators. I think parents should bring their kids because you can see and learn about alligators in their environment.
Lily (age 5)
We went fast. I liked the speed. I saw at least 10 alligators. The airboat was my favorite. My second favorite was feeding the bird. You should bring your kids because it's fun!
