Providing affordable family entertainment since 1949, Gatorland has been a vacation destination for millions of visitors from all over the world with its incredible display of huge alligators and crocodiles, train ride, aviary, breeding marsh and bird sanctuary, petting zoo, nature walk, gift shop, and one-of-a-kind shows such as the world famous Gator Jumparoo.

So c'mon inside... your adventure awaits!

We’ve got gators & crocodiles, birds & bears and now the all-new Gator Gully Splash Park has opened at Gatorland, giving guests one more reason to visit Orlando’s only attraction with bite and attitude!

Gatorland's Gator Gully Splash Park is the area's most unique splash zone featuring unusual water sources crafted to resemble some of the park's most popular residents.

Over a quarter-acre and ready to soak, the splash park features a row of giant egrets spilling water from their beaks; dueling water guns mounted on the backs of two giant gators lined up and waiting for a friendly squirtfest with your neighbor; an ol’ jalopy overrun with water and places to splash; a bucket tree that is just perfect for a slow dash and spray for the little ones; and Grandma’s Wet Shack, a veritable fountain of water-based fun for kids of all ages to splash, squirt and play in truckloads of cool H2O.

"Fun Filled Day!"
September, 2016
Gatorland is packed with fun things to do. One of the highlights from my visit was the train ride. It takes you all throughout the park and the tour guide is very informative. I also really enjoyed watching the trainers feed the alligators. Visiting the petting zoo and aviary was fun, too. Be prepared to spend a full day. There is SO much to do!

Such a great experience. This park is a combo of adventure and nature. We enjoyed the Screamin’ Gator Zipline tour. We saw a gator wrestling show and saw hundreds of gators and other native animals. Incredible staff! Very knowledgeable and fantastic shows, full of humor. They offer coupons, FL resident discounts and even Groupons. We will definitely go again on a future visit to Orlando.

It's fun to go to a place that uses their signs to make people smile. Was able to get a coupon to make our visit affordable. The alligator exhibits are well kept and I noticed that both the fences and wooden docks are maintained well. The gator wrangling show is a must see! The birds were a pleasant addition!

Well what can I say! What a fantastic place to have a day out and a cheap day at that. You get to see loads and I mean loads of gators from as little as 2yrs old. They also have white gators. You just have to watch the gator wrestling and you can sit on a gator after. It's great for all ages.

The place is very dirty with such small and dirty enclosures for the poor animals. The gators are all cramped in together and having to fight for their food. They think it's entertaining to watch a show where public get to see the gators fight for scraps leaving them without legs and eyes, very upsetting to see. To make it worse there is a show which a member of the staff wrestle with the gators, these poor gators are trapped in a small enclosure waiting to be pulled out by their tails while the rest try and find a place to hide. The gators get thrown about and looked very distressed. To make it worse at the end of the show they get another gator out which has tape around it's mouth and it gets to be sat on with its neck pulled back which looks very painful and distressing for this poor animal. By the look of things the gator is left with that same tape on the whole time leaving the poor thing left like that for hours on end. If you are an animal lover I WOULD not recommend going to this place as they all seem to be in a different world and believe it is right to treat these poor animals like this. These poor gators have been bred to be tormented, sat on and to be wrestled with which is disgusting. They also now have a feeding pen with goats, the goats looked very underweight and in bad condition. One of the goats didn't look well and was getting bullied by the others as they were in such a small pen with barely any space and the women working tried to ignore me at first and then just told me it was normal. The experience I have had is very upsetting and can't believe this is being allowed.
