We visited this old style attraction and we were not disappointed. Plenty of entertainment for all ages.

This is a great escape when holidaying in Orlando. If you have children or not it is very educational. Not a whole day experience however is great to just get out for a couple of hours. Try gator nuggets in the café.

We had a family reunion in Orlando. I did not tell my family where we were going until the last minute. Many said if they had known in advance they would of said no. Good thing be cause we all had a great time. We did the zip line, saw the shows, and with some advanced planning gator land catered... More

After seeking out the alligators in the wild, we had also booked to go into Gatorland and do the Screaming Zip over the Alligator lakes, well isn't that what all tourists do ;-) Had great fun and our guides were excellent, shame we have the regular self wanting woman who wants a slap on the back for just putting on...

Great exhibits and professional handlers. I wasn't sure what to expect, but these guys were entertaining and knowledgeable. This place had, in addition to reptiles, a petting zoo, a water zone for the kiddos, big cats, and numerous birds. Great bird watching on the boardwalks and observation towers. All very clean and well built. And the train is fun too!... More

We really enjoyed this park even though it is smaller and older. Lots to watch and learn and do. They have a zip line now too!

My husband, my 2 boys and I went to Gatorland this past Saturday. It was just shy of $100 for park entry and didn't include ziplines. There was very little to do. We blew threw the park in about an hour. I would not recommend to anyone.

I think the more I come here, the more I find interesting. This time I made a solo trip and I got to take my time. I wasn't hurried by family members and I learned so much about the animals and exhibits. While most are drawn to the shows such as the gator wrestling or watching the gators jump out... More

After arriving in Orlando, this was the first park we visited and we all really enjoyed it. If you are coming here as well as visiting the other big parks then come here first as i have heard that people think this is a let down if they visit it after being at Disney etc. You can get close up...
