Visited the Everglades Safari Park as part of a broader tour. The first thing I thought that was cool was that there were alligators all over the area...small ones that weren't in cages. They were harmless once you just kept your distance. I loved the...More

Hello, The alligator nature show last between 15-20 minutes. We open at 9am and our first ride is usually around 9:15/9:30 See you soon
We are booking a group trip of approx 25ppl. How much time should we block, to do everything, assuming we're doing a 40min private air boat ride?

I think an hour is enough time.
Do the airboat tours go fast? I went on one as a very young child and I remember there was a part we went crazy fast. It was so thrilling. Would like to experience that again as an adult.

It went fast, but not too scary. I always felt safe and a couple times when they whirled around it gave you that tickle in your stomach.
