My advice is to get there early. It’s like having a private tour and the place is empty and the animals are alert and happy. Also check Groupon or living social deals. I used the money I saved on dining and trying some of the...More

Had some over from England and took them to Billie Swamp. We all had a great day. Alligator wrestling, the swamp buggy, air boat ride, feeding the gators and seeing all the other animals was just great.

Just get there early I think at 9 and go into shop to get on the list. You can see animals while you wait. And call to be sure there's one at 10;30 or 10 am. Leave 25 minutes minimum to drive into the place off I 75.

Legally, probably yes, but functionally I would not recommend it. It is quite noisy, and so rough that it is a challenge even for an adult to stay in their seat.
