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 parks 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.

"Alligators Galore"

We really enjoy our visits to Gatorland. The shows are kind of brief, but are still interesting. The real attraction here is the many ponds/lakes full of gators. You can buy food to feed them (and the birds and the turtles). Nice Florida resident special going on right now (1/2 off). You could do the entire park in a couple hours or, if you take your time and go to all the shows, you could spend the entire day.

My family and I thought we'd only be there for an hour or so, we ended up spending 3 hours there. We bought the train upgrade but didn't get to use it because we spent so much time at the shows and looking at everything there. Lots more to see than just alligators and crocodiles. We got the go city card and it was one of the attractions included. Super cool!
