Loved seeing the massive 14 foot gators, the white gators, the land tortoise, the saltwater crocs and the Jumparoo show. All of that was awesome. Did not enjoy the train (too short and nothing to see) and the swamp walk was closed. Also the upclose encounters show was a waste of time. We went on a Monday and there was... More

Away from the parks a visit to Gatorland takes you back to nature. Every time we go to Florida we visit Gatorland and always have a fabulous day. Excellent shows and something for all the family. A wonderful place, both educational & fun. Please don't miss out.............a must on your list!

We were thinking "can't wait to see real gator wrestling." We were disappointed to say the least. I mean it was interesting and the kids enjoyed it. My son did the zip line over the gator pit and he had a blast. The kids did enjoy it but for the adults it was a let down. If you have a... More

A fun day out with lots of exciting things to see. You can go into an aviary full of budgies, feed the goats, watch a very entertaining man wrestle an alligator , ride a zip wire over crocodile infested swamp, walk through a boardwalk natural swamp, etc. etc.

This was brillant. We had a day trip here to escape Disney and were really pleased we did. The shows were excellent - really funny- and there is enough to do fro a few hours - we had dodgy weather but that didn't stop the fun. Didn't do zip wire which seems amazingly expensive!!!!!

I found out about Gatorland by driving past the big Gator mouth outside the park. Having now visited the attraction, I have no idea why this park is not more well known. Upon reading the reviews, I thought I would need 1/2 day to visit the attraction, but instead, my visit was spread over 1 1/2 days, and still I... More

My family & I visited Gatorland in August 2015 and booked the Night Shine Tour, OMG!! This was the best! Our tour guide named Michael "Mike" was more than knowledgeable, humorous and made the evening fun fun fun! We touched snakes, baby crocodiles and lizards. We especially enjoyed feeding the goats and seeing a rare white crocodile. It was a... More

This place is not Disney. It's not Universal. It is Florida. It is old Florida...fun, uncomplicated, un-rushed, free parking, food that is affordable, no hour-long lines, LOTS of gators, fun train, zip line, and, did I mention LOTS of GATORS. Yes, big gators, little gators, sleeping gators, and high-jumping gators. They have even have a gator you can hold while... More

This place was so much fun! We were in Orlando for a military conference and were looking for something unique. Someone had suggested Gatorland, I kind of thought they were joking. It sounded too cheesy to be an entertaining venue. I was wrong. We had a blast. Loved the live shows. It was large enough to really have a good... More
