Great day out for all ages

Had a great day here with young and older kids zip wires are great. Although with all the extras and photos it was an expensive day out.

Great place to see gators and other local wildlife up close. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The shows are entertaining.

We were pleasantly surprised when we got here; it is much larger than we expected. Lots to see and do; lots of gators plus a reptile house, aviary, petting zoo and water park. Pay a little bit extra and sit on an alligator; it's totally cool. Bring money for the huge gift shop.

We took advantage of the Florida residents special,which made it extremely affordable. We enjoyed the shows the train ride and the petting zoo. The albino alligators were super cool too. The splash area was a great way to get cooled off, and the two year old we had with us loved it. So if you have children with you, a... More

I haven't been here since 1983. It has changed a lot and the kids really liked it more than I thought they would. I expected them to be bored. since they are into the fast rides at the amusement parks. They have gators and other animals to see and a walking trail. There are a few shows they do with... More

Great place for kids but make sure you bring a lot of extra cash after paying admission. Crazy how every little thing you do there cost more money!

Went with my 2 teenage daughters 16 & 17 yrs old. They loved it! The facility is big enough to wander around and do your own thing without feeling confined with so many people around yoy. The gators & shows were awesome. The walkway through the swamp forest was so cool while observing the natural beauty. This place by far... More

I visited Gatorland 18 years ago as a child and am pleased to report that it is still as I remembered it. It was refreshing to see that it has not been commercialised like it so easily could have been and is still just focused on these incredible native creatures. Lots of interesting facts and information around the exhibits. Take... More

Just had a really exciting day in Gatorland! If you want a alternative to the main theme parks go to Gatorland! It's raw and pretty basic but it has loads of alligators in both man made and natural environments (Swamps) and the shows are fun exciting and informative! The humour of signs and the Rangers is perfect and a nice... More

We got there just before opening and spent 3.5-4hrs there. There are 3 shows to watch. All use the same staff- they were very entertaining so not a problem. We bought the upgraded pass which give you gator food (hot dogs.......) a train ride & photo sitting on a gator (photo not included). Yes in ride not great but boys... More
