Description

from Gatorland
Known internationally as the Alligator Capital of the World, Gatorland is a 110-acre alligator theme park and wildlife preserve, located just minutes away from Sea World, Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, and the Orlando International Airport on US 441 near the Orlando - Kissimmee border.

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.

"Gaterland Visit"
November, 2018
Value for money, shows we saw were entertaining, you have the chance to handle some of the animals if you want to, there are places to eat or get coffee and a snack, it's a nice way to spend an afternoon.... Sadly heavy rain cut short our visit, even the Crocs took cover.

"Gatorland - definitely worth the stop"
October, 2018
We visited Gatorland with our kids (ages 9, 7, 4, 2) and parents and it was a GREAT visit.

We bought the basic entry (through Reserve Orlando - adult tickets; and ticketsatwork.com - kids tickets) for a good discount. Then we bought an extra package the day of that included "wrestling" an alligator, feeding them and riding the train.

What we loved:
the shows: we say 3 different shows, all entertaining, just the right length, fun, and engaging.
the train: our littlest guy (and grandpa) loves trains, so this was perfect for him.
feeding the gators: wow...they certainly take a bite of those hot dogs! Seeing the show where they jump for chicken was...well, YIPE!!!
the staff: there were lots of staff everywhere and they all were very helpful and friendly
the spray park: be sure to take some extra clothes for the end of the day and let the kids play...this was a fantastic spray park!

I was a little worried about safety. Ever since that poor little guy got eaten a few years ago at the Disney resort I'm terrified for my kids...but THIS PLACE WAS SO SAFE!!! There are no worries at all about my kids accidentally being somewhere they shouldn't be.

Because of the ages of our kids we didn't do the zip line or the swamp tours - but they looked fun.
Overall: a great visit I would highly recommend. Wow! Some of those gators are really huge!

Tip: You'll probably need about 3-4 hours at least to see all the shows and do the things included in general admission. If you want to do some of the extra activities, you need closed toe shoes - not even closed toe sandals - but actual shoes. Having extra cash along the way for photos and feeding snacks would be good.

This was our first time here and there was a lot of things to do here. I was very impressed. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that has an adventurous disposition. You can feed Gators,see snakes, birds, go ziplining, train and swamp buggy riding. Plus shows. As you can see I'm still excited about my day here. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

If you get Theme park fatigue this is an excellent visit. Due to the exchange rate and with the addition of the off road safari it's a bit pricey but still worth it. Obviously there's a lot of Alligators, like loads. Little ones, teenage ones and some big uns. There's plenty to occupy for a solid morning/afternoon out and longer if you want. Definitely sit in on the shows, they're informative, interesting and funny with some great improv from the staff. There's other animals and a petting zoo of sorts. There's a little train which laps the site, some good walks and scenery. We were able to get Alligator nuggets from the food bar. Tasty, give it a go. I think everyone in our groups highlight was the off road ride. We had the truck to ourself and had a great ride. The driver and "guide" especially were really funny, laying on the "redneck" shtick with aplomb. A word of warning, our party included a couple of pensioners and they struggled a little with the rough and ready ride quality but everyone else loved it. If you're staying in the vicinity of the Disney parks it's a little bit of a further drive but nothing terrible. Go along and join in.

It was great to visit this place. We saw gators’ up close and personal. It is full of interesting facts on the animals. It is a great day out by yourself or with friends and family. We were slightly disappointed with the buggy experience: a bit short and nothing to write home about. Overall, great value for money. Florida residents and seniors (over 55) get a nice discount.

The place is just ok. Not worth spending so much money. I took the ride. It is not even worth mentioning. Could not do the zipline as reached late. My suggestion, if it is available at 50% offer and you have done universal and disney then may be can visit.
