While visiting Orlando, my family spent a 1/2 day at Gatorland and enjoyed every minute. It is just a nice change of pace after spending previous days in the hustle and bustle of Disney. We enjoyed the nostalgic, old-Florida, roadside attraction feel of this place...More

I’ve got mixed feelings over this place. I can see why people say it’s cruel (there really is no excuse for the size of Chester’s enclosure) but then other enclosures are fantastic. Some of the staff were brilliant (Steven the gator wrestler is an absolute...More

Hi, Thank you for your review. We are in the process of constructing new exhibits for Chester and the white alligators. Although their exhibits exceed required standards and they are very happy animals, we agree that larger and more natural exhibits are always better. Stephen...More
