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!

"Good for about two hours - avoid the monster truck ride"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5

This is an okay trip. There are A LOT of alligators to see. Not much else. We purchased the "monster truck" extra ride. Don't bother...its not worth it and the guide was pretty annoying. The guide on this trip and the performers at the live shows all made weird "redneck" jokes. We're not from the southern part of the US so I wasn't sure if we were supposed to laugh or be offended. Strange experience! Would not recommend unless you really like reptiles.

"Unexpected side trip"

This wasn’t on our original schedule but we are so glad that we did. The park is great with so many gators and crocodiles to see. We were able to feed the gators and did the monster truck ride which was a favourite with our kids.

"Followed the trainer Savanah. Awesome experience "
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed December 16, 2018 NEW
My daughter started following Savanah. She offered for us to follow her whiles he was feeding the alligators and crocodiles. She taught us that they can learn up to 30 words, follow commands (when they want to) and can recognize faces. This park is clean, well cared for and the staff including the CEO were amazing. The black bird (Vulture) is the only thing that will not be eaten at the park... they defecate or puke on themselves as a defense mechanism and the alligators and crocs will spit them out. The feeding of alligators with a pole (3 - fish for $5). Is good experience for our 4 year old. The photos with a baby alligator was rather inexpensive compared to other places. I would recommend

"Old time Fla attraction"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed December 14, 2018 NEW
I first moved to Fla in the late 60s. Always wanted to come here- it’s an old-school attraction. Finally visited this month and was not disappointed. Tons of gators and crocs, but lots of other animals as well. (Don’t miss the turtle/tortoise and the panthers.) They offer a couple shows - kinda corny, but I was OK with that. Enjoyed the variety of simple attractions. Also liked Chester, their huge old gator. Grounds are pleasant. Imagine what this place was like back in the 50s and 60s. Be sure to check out their YouTube vids - that will give you a good sense of what they have and what they are.

"Updated Fun shows, fun experiences, and so many gators"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed December 12, 2018 NEW
This place has updated since we were there 5 years ago. Besides so many gators and other creatures of all sizes, and the original fun and funny shows, they have added some great new experiences. We did the stompin gator off the road adventure and it was a blast. Its one of those big trucks and it was so much fun and the actors were down right hysterical. We also enjoyed the funny original shows like the gator wrestling, up close encounter, and the gators jumping show. They have added zip-line and other experiences as well but we did not do on this visit. Besides gators, there are so many florida birds living there naturally you can see them up close on a gator walking path. The staff was very professional and the prices fair. We had a party of seven with two younger children ages 6 and 9 and we all enjoyed. We were able to see everything mid week in about 5 hours. It was a fun day. I will go back.
