from Gatorland Night Shine Tour
Florida Nightlife is about to get WILD!

Your Gator Night Shine adventure takes you deep into the domain of Florida's most famous reptile, the alligator! Armed with only a flashlight and a few hot dogs, you bravely make your way along the winding wooden walkways of Gatorland's Alligator Breeding Marsh. The sounds of the night come alive around you as the rustle of feathers overhead and the splashing of water nearby signal that you are not alone. Turning your flashlight towards the water, you suddenly become aware of hundreds of hungry, glowing, red eyes slowly making their way closer… it's now your turn to experience the "Real Florida." A fun and educational tour for kids of all ages, Gatorland's Gator Night Shine Tour is one swamp stompin' adventure you don't want to miss!

When traveling to Orlando, I had some free time and wanted to do a little something different than the usual Disney or Universal. So glad I did, what a blast! They have a time where you can feed the alligators for an extra fee, and they do take photos after, and you can buy them in the photo shop. Do yourself a favor and get that photo. This will be the closest you will ever get to an alligator, and still be relatively safe.

"Great day in good weather"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

This is a great park. However, you do need decent weather to really enjoy it. There is nowhere to shelter from rain or the cold. For by all that, it is Florida so we have great weather for most of the time and this park is a great half day outing. You can stretch it to a day and now that they have introduced a new monster truck ride and the zip lines, it can easily be a full day. Value for money is very good, especially if you are a resident and also if you buy the annual pass as we have done. However, expect to pay more for the train, truck, zip line, food to feed gators, birds, goats, tortoise and to sit on the back of a gator which does not include the cost of the photo. This is not a zoo but they still have a variety of animals and birds to see. The gator shows are really good. The all day train ride is $2 but to be honest, it’s a waste of money and time. There is food which is delicious, plenty seating and fans on a hot day. The restrooms all need upgrading and more installed especially the Ladies ones. There is a waterpark also slides and climbing bars for the kids to finish the day off. Recommended for all ages.
