“We took the 1-hour raptor ride with our 5 year old boy and had a blast!! The scenery at Kualoa Ranch is simply out of this world and we had so much fun on the ride as it was sunny one moment and raining the other. It was so much fun with the rain hitting hard against our face, going up and down the bumps and navigating the tight turn! This is definitely a must-try and once in a lifetime experience if you are there! Don’t miss this especially if you are traveling with young ones and is not able to take the ATV ride.” – Visitor, Singapore (Trip Advisor)
