Imagine creating an outdoor birthday that can includes panthers, bears and airboats and have a sleepover in an actual Chickee! That sounds like a real adventure doesn’t it?
From wild to mild, you can create a custom birthday package that will make your celebration a success. Here is an example of what we have to offer, add or take-away activities to fit your needs;
Start your party off with a classic birthday lunch and blow-out the candles at the Swamp Water Café. Our full service restaurant is open from 7am t0 6pm. If you are staying the night use this time to welcome your guests, open presents and tell them about the adventure ahead. Ask your guests to grab their overnight bags and place their gear safely in the Chickee dorm. Don’t forget your flashlights, you will need them after dark.
Gather your party and head to the airboat dock for an exhilarating airboat ride. You and your guests will zip through three different eco-systems and see wild animals in their natural environment. Once you are back on land sit in the shade inside Fort Critter and watch the Wildlife Show. Meet creatures big and small and have a photo op after the show holding a baby alligator.
Get ready for a 45 minute bumpy and bouncy swamp buggy ride that will lead you into the swamp after dark. Spy animals eyes with your flashlights, hear mysterious sounds of creatures that lurk after dark. Who will be lucky enough to shine the most red alligator eyes? Now that your senses are heightened unleash your creativity and tell stories of tales unknown under the Chickee. As your night winds down watch the stars with views of the constellations not visible from the city. When you are ready to call it a night walk passed the alligators, panthers and reptile exhibits to your dorm chickee, nestle down in your bunk and enjoy natures lullaby of the night sounds and gentle breezes from the swamp.
