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.

"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 were wary of Gatorland...not sure if it was ethical, good treatment of animals etc. It was very 'campy' and fun though. There were a few things I saw that I thought seemed unethical, but overall seemed good. I didn't have enough info. To fairly judge. Lots to see and do. Lots of shade. Kids loved it. In the end we were glad we went. The staff were great

I took my 7 and 14 year old here on a Friday and we absolutely loved every minute at Gatorland! We only spent three hours and didn't get to do and see everything. But everything we did see and do was outstanding! We will return next time we are in Orlando!

My family and I are here in Florida on holiday for 2 weeks, and decided to visit Gatorland after we have not been since our last holiday here 6 years ago. Upon our visit we were queueing for about 5 minutes to get in, which was reasonable. However the price have gone up since we were here last, which was one of the only downfalls as it made it an expensive few hours. When we first entered, we came across two sections, one with 2-4 year old alligators and one with 3-5 year old alligators. At this section, you were able to pay for a stick with a fish on the end that you could dangle into either of the enclosures for them to eat. You got 3 fish for $5. Moving further around, we came across the bigger gators that were all swimming in big, open sections of water. Here, you can purchase hotdogs for the bigger alligators so you can feed them. We bought 4 packets of 4 hotdogs, which was around $10. This was good fun, however there are a few HUGE birds that do wait for the hotdogs, and if you leave the packers of them on the side then they will take them! So keep them close to you. We then came across the white gators section, which although they are good, their enclosures are very small.. which isn't very nice to look at compared to the other gators. We didn't spend long here. We then came across the aviary, which was excellent. There are designated times where you can enter the aviary and pay for some food to feed the little budgies. They come over and land on you to eat their food which is a great experience. There are several other attractions there such as the train that takes you around the swamp and the shows. However we did not do these as we took part in previous years. Overall, Gatorland makes for a really good day, and it is definitely worth a visit if needing to entertain children (and adults!) alike.

"Night Shine Experience"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

The Night Shine Experience is a great small group behind the scenes activity. It starts at dusk (8pm after park closes) and you get the hands on experience of holding baby gators, a mini tour of the park, and whats better than whipping turkey dogs at gator mouths. Our tour guide and the security guard that helped us when we couldn't find the right entrance were very friendly.

We had a brilliant day here. Lots to do and see. The shows were really good fun and the staff very entertaining and friendly. We fed alligators which is worth doing and loved the jumperoo show. There is a small splash park for younger children so take swim costumes for a cool down.
