Tall Tales of Old Florida

Date: Oct 12, 2019

Tour guides will lead you by lantern through the grounds to meet six “tellers” who will share uniquely Florida stories about skunk apes, misbehaving trains, cowhunting giants and other legendary creatures. You will enjoy a magic lantern show, a turn-of-the-20th-century projection technology that led to the birth of the film industry. Hear and see a tale of pirates and ghosts on the silver screen.

Come early and enjoy harvest games and decor while you wait for your tour to begin. Tours will start every 10 minutes between 6:40-7:00pm, 7:00pm-8:00pm, and 8pm-9pm. Below, select a ticket with the time starting range of your preference. Tours are approximately 1 hour in length.

All paid tickets include a snack and drink following the end of the tour.
