I deplore captivity in any form, even pets, so my opinion is of the fringe. I agree with “Over priced, over populated, overly cruel.” except that the staff was friendly and helpful. But you had keep your eye out for a ranger to ask questions. Not an abundance of scientific information, except for the charming and informative signs posted throughout.... More

We live in Florida and visited Gatorland for the first time, this past weekend. We think it is great. It is a great deal with the Florida Resident rate they offer. However, even if we had to pay the regular gate price, we still would have enjoyed it. It is totally different from all the amusement parks obviously. We chose... More

We booked up for one of the evening tours, and were the only people there. The staff were brilliant, and we felt like VIPs having the park all to ourselves. The gators were well looked after, and feeding them, and shining torches into the water and seeing the light reflected in a sea of eyes was such a great experience.... More

I visited this place on Jan 2014. I had witness so many budgies birds being stepped in the over crowed budgies bird room. The room was over crowed with kids and adults. The kids were getting so excited and they were jumping around when they saw the budgies birds were getting so close to people because the budgies are so... More

Enjoyed the shows, feeding the gators, the birds, the train, the hike and just about everything there. It does not take all day and it is relatively in-expensive. Will probably return our next trip to Orlando.

A great experience for the kids and lots to see and do. If you want to do the zip wires book in advance. Food and drink reasonably priced as is admission. Not a full day out, so maybe go here early and plan something else for mid afternoon.

Love everything especially the animal encounters. They have a nice water park included in the park admission. My kids love feeding the birds and alligators.

I took my son to this July 2014. Saw only one gator because it was partly cloudy instead of sunny. At the end there was a small show with a couple of gators that was pretty cool. My son got to hold a baby gator and for me to take my own picture of him holding it, cost $3.00. All... More

This was our second time at gatorland!! We love going!! Only thing that disappointed me was seeing adults walking around drinking beer!! I don't think it should be allowed in a family place like this! If people can't go one day at a park like this without beer or alcohol of any kind for that matter, then they shouldn't leave... More

Adult vacation and enjoyed this event so much more than Sea World! Gatorland was a five hour day for us. So much to do! Amazing gators, birds and other reptiles. The shows were entertaining. The train was cool. The water area was refreshing for all ages. We heard people enjoying the zip line, but we did not partake in this... More
