On a recent visit to Florida my girlfriend said she'd like to Gatorland as she'd been there some years ago and it had been the highlight of her trip. I must admit I was a little dubious but found it was a great place to see thousands of gators up close. The 'shows' are fun - I do hope the... More

we were delighted with Gatorland when we visited in 2000. Staff was knowledgeable and friendly. Gators were plenty and we stayed for several hours. Had a blast here!

To tell the truth, I was looking to kill an hour or so before my flight. I'd already had lunch and a few beers and this place was on the way. Though it was beastly hot and humid (Florida, remember?) this was a very tranquil place to stroll the extensive boardwalk through their swamps and of course, there are the... More

The park was well kept. The staff friendly. Lots of things to see and do. I was very surprise by the shows and the many animals display. I gave it 4 stars because no cameras allowed in the zip line. Every other place I've zip lined before they allow at least the helmet cam. Here nothing. The pics they take... More

I read the reviews before going and it appears most were good but the odd ones were stating negatives about this place. So keeping an open mind about this place went to check it out. First no charge for parking tick! You can buy a basic ticket which allows you access to the park with no frills like the zip... More

We had a great day at gatorland. We arrived early so were lucky to begin exploring the park while it was still quiet. The gator jumping show was great and we bought some food to feed the gators, which was fun. Fully recommend the close encounters show! It was really interesting and the presenters were really funny. We enjoyed the... More

Execellent does exactly what it says on the tin, loads of gators and crocks. It made a great change from the theme parks, well worth a visit, great little shows, I loved it.

Gator land is smaller than I was expecting with the amount of things they have on offer, but it's all been rather cleverly laid out to maximise the space they have Lots and lots of alligators and crocodiles to see The jumparoo feeding time is quite a show, although it could be longer to feed more of them. Don't miss... More

First of all, I can't believe Gatorland is only rated #22. I understand Disney and Universal rule Orlando, but this place was great. My husband and I went expecting some cheesy little swamp with a few alligators... we were pleasantly surprised. There are TON of alligators and crocodiles there along with lots of other animals. We appreciated the cheesy, but... More
