“Fun day!!!”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

If you like gators and animlas, this place is a must see!!!! All types and sizes of gators. In the "Gator Wrestling" arena, you can sit on the back of an actual gator and get your picture taken. Several fun and educational shows, and lots and lots of gators!!!!!

“Good (if you are interested in gators), park well planned with thoughtful touches”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

We enjoyed our visit to gatorland, although some of us more than others. Staff very pleasant and welcoming. I loved watching the gators and seeing other visitors feed them hot dogs; but my husband felt that once you've seen one you've seen them all. Very pleasant walk around the park, which is very thoughtfully planned...amusing signposts and fans dotted around which give a welcome cooling off. We also enjoyed the ride on the train, the gator wrestling show (don't miss this) and the water fountain playground - again great to cool down. I also liked seeing the very rare white gators. All in all, a fun place, especially for families with young children.

“A nice afternoon away from the crowds”
Reviewed October 21, 2012 via mobile

My son loves zoos and animal exhibits and he loved Gatorland. The shows are a little cheesy but this is a nice attraction if you want to get away from the crowds. There is a nature trail to walk and a train ride around the park. There are a few other animal exhibits and A LOT of alligators

“Super fun!”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

Our family (2 sons, 9 & 11) really enjoyed our visit to Gatorland...after being overstimulated by all the mega attractions, this is a great, relaxing attraction that's educational too. Feeding the 'gators, learning about them and other reptiles, "wrestling" them...my boys were in heaven! An informative train ride was fun and the kids enjoyed eating gator nuggets and feeding fries to the seagulls! It's been a while since we've been there, but thinking about our visit brings a smile to my face. I was expecting something hokey, but it's terrific!

“Great fun”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

If you thought you knew a lot aout Gators then visit Gatorland. There are hundreds there all sizes. Plus theres a woodland walk which is relaxing as well as plenty of shows through the day.

Some nice parrots (McCaws) and some VERY old tortoises - massive things and even slower than some of the staff I work with :)

You can have your photo with a Gator after watching the experts wrestle one down and tell you facts that you might not have known.

Low cost and great entertainment. If you have a camera - make sure it goes there with you.
