Thought this was just for kids and boy was I wrong! Amazing amount of gators on property. Very clean and a part of old Florida that is not outdated. The gator wrestling was not at all faked!

Instead of going to high priced Sea World with our 10 month daughter we decided to head to Gatorland instead and we where very happy with our experience. The staff where great and it really seemed that they love their job. Lot of exiting animals and reasonably priced. Can very much recommend!

This was a great experience. You can get turkey dogs to feed to the gators, just try not to feed the birds. There is a photo opportunity to hold an alligator or snake and get that photo taken. This isn't just about alligators, however, there are lots more exhibits on turtles, owls and other wildlife in Florida. Very educational and... More

This is great for people that go to Disney etc. I find after three of four days you do get "Attractioned Out"! This is a change of pace. For those of us who don't understand reptiles, it was a learning experience. The cost is reasonable for children and seniors. You do get to see "Gators" etc. up close. You could... More

We celebrated my son's double digit birthday at Gatorland with his siblings and grandparents and everyone LOVED it!! Nice family friendly place, the employees are so sweet and great with the kids. Highly recommend you come back at night for the "night shine" with the gators, also a great experience:)

I hadnt been to gatorland since I was probably about five years old and from what I remembered it was pretty dull; however, they made a lot of changes in 20 years. My best friend and I decided to try zip lining for the first time and it was an absolute adventure! Our guides were great (one was extremely handsome... More

I wasn't sure what to expect of this park. But I did read the reviews on trip advisor and they were very high. So me and my wife had time to kill in Orlando and wanted to do something different. Definitely spend the extra $10 and get your photo on the beach with the gators after feeding them steak. This... More

This was a last minute decision to go and we were glad we did! They gave a Veteran's discount that saved us on admission. The place is simple and fun and nothing is overpriced. We bought the kids $1 sticks of food to feed the birds and were in heaven and they landed all over them. We also took a... More

Since 1949 the sign said. that could only mean one thing in my mind...hokey dated tourist trap. How surprised and wrong I was. The most amazing amount of gators...EVER! There were HUGE gators easily 4 ft across the back. There was a 13 ft 1000 lb gator segrated to his own space that had been EATING DOGS in Tampa !!... More
