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!

I love animals. This place had so many awesome gators. It was fun to see all the different kinds. and you can get pretty close to them, which is cool. They are well fed. and they look well treated.

"You should add it to your Florida bucketlist"

The kids and I had a couple of days off and decided to add Gatorland to our list of florida sites. There is actually quite a bit to keep you busy and if you are a Florida resident you can get 50% off tickets. Lots of gators to be seen. I would encourage you to take some time to walk around the swamp trails as well. The food is definitely not great, but there are plenty of areas to get drinks. Just a heads up, the rides are all extra $. Lots of birds and other wildlife to see. Exhibits are clean and plenty of educational opportunities.

We had very few expectations before visiting the park. But upon arrival for the evening tour, Michael was super inviting and very witty! Holding the various animals and seeing the gators was a very fun experience. Michael, our tour guide, made the evening super enjoyable. I would highly recommend this experience for anyone with any interest in Alligators!
