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.

"Great day out"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed May 03, 2016 NEW

We went to Gatorland in the hope of avoiding the heavy queues suffered at Disney Animal kingdom. Upon arrival there were literally a few cars in the car park and we walked straight up to the desk and got our tickets. We paid $99 each which included gator food and a chance to feed some and then get a picture with them. We also had a chance to sit on one and get a picture in the Gator wrestling experience. There is plenty to do at Gatorland and it can easily fill a day up and would recommend a visit. The only reason this got a 4 star instead of 5 was because of the wrestling experience. The Alligators are taped by the mouth and then a queue of people (adults and kids) take their turn to sit on one and lift the gators head back to mimic that you have captured it. The idea sounded great hence we paid for it at the start of the day. Upon actually doing it we felt that it was unnecessary and unfair on the animals. They charge $10 to do this (professional photo extra) so obviously it's a good money maker however I'd be more happy if they add $10 to the entry ticket price and do away with this experience. Rant over.....all in all a great day however next time we won't be paying for the wrestling experience. The live shows are interesting and the feeding/photo opportunity with the gators are well worth the visit alone.

"Great half day out"

Every time we go to Orlando we always make a trip to gator land It is not over crowed and you can just opt to walk around but my kids like to do the zip wire course they do (they say it is amazing)after that they like to go and feed the gators and in general just walk around the park. My youngest like the giant tortoise , this is a nice place for families as long as you have an interest in gators. You can pay to have a photo sitting on a gator and on all 3 occasions that we have been we have done this Nice to have a day away from the manic theme parks

"Great Even on a Drizzly Day"

Loved loved loved this park! It has lots of covered walkway, so you can enjoy it rain or shine. We had so much fun seeing the shows, feeding the alligators, and participating in the junior wrestling. This was our favorite day in Orlando, and that tops Animal Kingdom, and Typhoon Lagoon. It was just a simple, no craziness, enjoyable family day learning about gators, strolling through the park, feeding gators, feeding birds, and more. We give it six thumbs up. Thank you Gatorland for the incredible memories!

Gatorland provides an ideal alternative to a day on the rides at the theme parks. Pick up a timetable on arival & plan to see the shows. Not a fully day park but for a few hours.
