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!

"A must see!"

We have been going to Gatorland for many years now and still find it very enjoyable. Visit good for half a day's entertainment, great shows, animal interaction, very knowledgeable staff and obviously plenty of gators. Food like most parks in Orlando isn't great but passable if hunger really takes a grip. Depending on the length of your stay I would suggest you go for a annual pass it's only about $10 extra than a day ticket then if you ever want to pop in for a hour or so no more admission fees, one more suggestion pay $5 and buy some gator food ( turkey hotdogs) and feed the gators, very entertaining.

We purchased our tickets for Gatorland from a Park Ticket vendor at the Golden Corral on 192. We only save about $5 off gate price so not huge savings. When approaching the park and when we first went in, it looked like it was really small and I thought we would only be there for about an hour. However the park is much bigger than I thought, as there are many walkways leading to different areas of the park. There is a lovely long walkway through Gators in their natural habitat. A splash park for the kids, which really helps if it's a particularly hot day as they can cool down inbetween the shows. There were three shows in total, Gator Jumparoo Show, Gator Wrestling and Upclose Encounters. All three shows are really so funny, the "keepers" are extremely knowledgable and have great banter between each other, including those jokes that only the adults really get but the kids find a little amusing too. The shows are repeated twice per day, so there is plenty of opportunity to see them as well as taking in all the other exhibits at the park. We spent a good 3.5 to 4 hours there and it really was one of the highlights of the holiday. It was especially nice not to have to queue for everything and be in a park which hasn't got a mass of people like the theme parks. There are opportunities to feed the gators, a walkthrough aviary, ziplines (extra charge and we didn't do this). It's roughly $16 a child and $24 for a adult, and in my opinion well worth the money. We didn't eat any food there so I am unable to comment on this.

We were there 2 years ago and they have made many new improvements. A splash park for the kids and some new animal enclosures. The shows are really fun and interesting the bird room was one of my favorites. If you get a chance it's $10 to feed the alligators and it's is a really cool experience you are 3 ft away from at least 20 alligators. My daughter loved it. This is a really neat place a must if you in Orlando.

Living in Florida for almost 2 yrs now we've seen our share of alligators but since we were visiting friends in Orlando the night before, decided to make a detour to check the place out and til January 31st, Florida residents get 50% off their ticket entry . Was really cool. Enjoyed it very much. The people working there are very informative and fun at the same time. We decided to pass on doing the zipline crossing over the gators but if you're wanting to do it, it'll cost you $55 a person. They have many different shows and they interact with the crowd at all of them. We did what they called gator wrestling where you get to sit on one of them and take a picture (smaller size and the mouth is taped of course), that is free, they take pictures but you can also take your own from a little bit further. Had a fun day with our 13 and 16 yr old.

"The Real Florida"

Nothing against Disney, but places like Gatorland are the real Florida experience. Yeah, the show commentaries are campy and it might not have all of Disney's bells & whistles, but I enjoyed it more than the overblown theme parks. Gatorland does have much more than I expected: a small water park area for kids, playground, abundant animal life including pink flamingos, parrots, deer, and many more. In honor of Dave Barry I made a plastic alligator out of the molding machine. I wish our granddaughter had been with us to see the real Florida. I think every family should check this place out.
