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!

We only had a bit under 3 hours to spend and would have liked to spend a bit more. Feeding fish off a fishing line to the baby gators was an especially big thrill for our preschooler. There are loads of gators to see here and an overall great time.

Wow! What a great experience! Staff Were all very friendly and very knowledgeable. Gaylann was extremely packed but yet you didn’t feel It due to the many many places to explore. We visited on a hiking trail with alligators, raccoon, Possums, snakes. The petting zoo was extremely cool all the animals were super friendly and very hungry which we were able fed them all. One of the best experiences where is the parakeet hut opens every 45 minutes to the public where you’re allowed to go win purchase birdseed on a stick and all the parents come to you to eat of the stick they crawl on your arms you had your feet your legs if you love animals this is an experience you need to have... Can’t wait to go back🙌🏽

Neat place to visit. I would definitely recommend for a family outing. The gator wrestling and jumping show were worth watching.

"What a wonderful surprise!"

Went there as a multi-place pass choice for my 11 year old granddaughter. I wasn’t expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised at this park. We were able to stay dry, easily, with the afternoon storms and enjoyed multiple shows that were delightful! The area where the children feed the budgies was a favorite of mine, and my granddaughter quickly got over her fear of the birds quickly. What a great park to spend an afternoon in! (And don’t worry there’s lots of trees and overneta to cut down on the intense sunlight as well!) definite go to place in the future!

Unique experience! The kids loved feeding the giant tortoises, birds and alligators. Each feeding was an additional cost per person but they enjoyed the experience!!
