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.

"Awesome experience!"
June, 2018 NEW
Visiting Gatorland was one of the highlights of our visit this time in Florida. My whole family had a blast, we made sure we did this as we live in Los Angeles and we wanted something that was unique and different and this was one of them! They have live gator wrestling shows, ziplines on every area of the park, bird/emus feedings, swamp/everglade pathways for walking, and it totally rocked my kid's world. I have two boys ages 9 and 3 and they both enjoyed it very much. I highly recommend this place of adventure to anyone. It's super fun.

"Fantastic Time"
May, 2018
We all had a great time at Gatorland. There was plenty to see - gators, birds, flamingos, parrots, bobcats, etc. Must visit the aviary! How cool it is to interact with the birds. The shows were amazing and hilarious! What a great crew! The park's setup definitely helps keep you cool on a hot day.

We decided to have a break from the theme parks and was recommended this park by our Hotel. I found some discount vouchers and off we went. We paid our entry and also opted for the monster truck ride through the park which was an extra 10$. Gator land is well established and been situated there for over 30 years. Not only do they have alligators from babies right through to whopping 10gt long beasts they also have rare albino gators, snakes, bobcats, giant turtles , they also have very entertaining shows where they feed the gators in front of you, you can also hold a baby (which I did!) hold a snake or even a feed some fully grown beasts !!! The monster truck ride was great fun and was brilliantly narrated by our host and driver who included everyone on the truck.. highly recommend this ride if you have children. All in all a great day, cheaper on the purse than any of the theme parks with the food and drink on sale sensibly priced.

Many different gators, plenty of activities and shows. The walk on the swamp is breath taking. If I lived here I would buy the annual pass.

We visited Alligator Adventure in Myrtle Beach three years ago and loved it, so while vacationing in Kissimmee we decided to visit Gatorland. We loved it as well, even more so than Alligator Adventure because the animals were more free at Gatorland. We watched the Alligator Wrestling and Jumparoo shows, both of which I highly recommend. The kids (ages 11, 10, and 7) had a blast at the splash pad. There were wild lizards literally everywhere and we loved trying to spot them all. On the swamp walk we saw two huge snapping turtles and several smaller turtles. The cats were a huge hit with our group because they weren’t hiding in the back like they usually are at the zoo. They were right near the walkway so we could get a good look at them and the kids could talk to them. For an additional fee you have the option of getting your picture taken with a snake or a baby alligator. There are very reasonably priced souvenirs in the gift shop at the exit. We stayed until they closed and had a great time. Parking was free.

I took my 5 year old grandson to gatorland and spent an absolute wonderful day! I had been there many years ago with my two daughters and it was such a pleasure going back again. Kayleigh mollycheck showed us where to find some of the highlights (the alligator feeding was awesome!!) and was so friendly and informative. It was all such a pleasure and I cannot thank you enough Kayleigh! It's people like you who make a big difference! My grandson has not stopped talking about going back again!

We had a great time at this attraction. There is way more than just gators! We fed emus, goats, fish and birds. The prices are reasonable. The swamp trail was a nice experience, mostly saw turtles in the swamp. The $2 train ride was a fun kick.
