About
Gatorama is a Florida 'must do'. A long standing family attraction complete with Alligators, Crocodiles, Monkeys, Bobcats, Raccoons, Peacocks, Ducks, Geese, Pythons and more! Try your hand at our 18+ Guest Feeding Experience "Fast Hands or No Hands" where you become the star of the show! Not ready to brave the big crocs? Sit back and enjoy one of two Big Gator Feeding Shows by our trained zookeepers. (FREE WITH ADMISSION) Feeling brave? For a small fee, you can jump on into Uncle Waders Catch A Gator Pond, or try your hand at Gator Wranglin'. Paleontologists in the group will want to try out our Big Gator Fossil Dig where they dig up real bones and are challenged to identify them. These make for FANTASTIC photo opportunities, so don't forget those cameras. Prefer a lazy afternoon? We have an extensive boardwalk, games and plenty of space in our Swoopy Palm Trail to relax and take in the sounds of nature. A taste of Real Florida is waiting for you at Gatorama!

We did the whole gatorama experience. It was amazing as I am a huge gator fan. These truly magestic creatures are amazing and the experience was incredible. Holding a baby Gator as it was hatched into this world was an experience in itself. Hearing the grunts prior to the gator emerging from it's shell was so heart felt and a one of a kind experience. The staff......well, what can I say.... They were extraordinary. They are patient and kind to all visitors. They definitely go the extra mile to make your experience as exciting as possible.
They definitely put safety first for both visitors and animals. My dream, if I dare dream it, is to someday be a part of this family business. Just dreaming..... There are no words to explain how amazing this place is. But then again... I'm so passionate about these historical creatures. Respecting their
unwavering strength and resiliance to survive every day. God bless you all and keep you safe. Till my next visit I say....chomp chomp!!

Great spot for young family fun
Sep 2021 • Family
My kids love gatorama. It’s much nicer and well run than one might expect. The feeding show is great, kids love getting gator food and feeding the gators too. The uncle waders catch a gator activity is always a hit and if you’re lucky enough to be there during the hatch it’s pretty cool. Highly recommend for young families

It’s a girl! I hatched a gator.
Aug 2021 • Solo
Today I had the honor of visiting this amazing farm. I also got to hatch a baby alligator right out of her shell. This farm is a now a multi generational alligator meat farm that allows the public to come inside and become educated. You can tell the family genuinely is looking to produce an excellent product with transparency and best management practices. It is for all ages, and groups and solo travelers alike. I highly recommend all the extra opportunities they have. For example, the hatching. However in the past I’ve enjoyed the photo opportunities and Fast Hands No Hands. Next time I’d like to try the Face2Face. I’ll be back. It’s a lot fun to just sit and watch the gators and crocs in the big pond munch on the gator cookies people throw them. It’s a safe place to feed gators and something you couldn’t do in the wild. So that is fun. Five stars.

NO WHERE NEAR TALLAHASSEE!
Jun 2021
Please correct the location. It is not in the panhandle. Your direction of 16 miles from Tallahassee is completely wrong. More like 300 miles!

Happy Valentines day
Feb 2021
We visited today valentines day with grandson. It is a little bit out of the way but worth it. Shelley Woonton went over the top and spend excellent time with our grandson teaching him about Florida nature and animals. Hand feeding turtles, hold baby crocodile, hold a boa and the grand finale catching several alligators by hand with Shelley was fabulous. Sorry did not get the other lovely ladies name that did the croc and gator feed show. She was awesome and learned a lot about both species. I will definitely be back in August for gator hatching. There are lots of monster size gators and crocs.

Taking the grandchildren
Jan 2021
This was a good day! We took our 3 year old twins. They were excited to see so many alligators in one place sunning themselves on the beach of “Croc Isle”. Actually, I think I had more fun than the kids. The kids shied away from holding a snake, so Grandma took their place. But they did feed the tortoise. Gatorama has many other animals to see, including the endangered Florida panther. Peacocks roaming the grounds and a playground for kids. The staff is quite knowledgeable and answered all my questions. I also like the fact that Gatorama is aware of the importance of saving our ecosystem and participating in wildlife conservation. A great time. We would definitely do this again.

Loved It!!
Dec 2020
My granddaughter and hubby had the best time interacting hands on with the animals. It was the very first time we had been to this park and we were very pleasantly surprised. Got to hold the baby gators and a snake and to pet the pig, donkeys and goats. The staff were so friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The park is well maintained. In spite of having animals, there were no unpleasant smells except one swamp water which is expected. Great experience.

Great experience!
Nov 2020
My first time and my husband's second after 40 year hiatus. We really enjoyed ourselves. We learned a lot, saw more alligators and crocodiles than we expected. The place is family owned and they have excellent staff, very knowledgeable and friendly. Talking with staff they told us the owners really work hard and treat the wildlife and employees with respect and care. That means a lot to me as I personally would rather support a small business like this than a huge corporation. I highly recommend this and will return again.
