“Fun day”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

We were at Gatorland to celebrate my grandson's 6th birthday. Perfect local attraction with plenty to see and do. The shows were just right with a mix of humor and amazement. We thought we would spend about 3 hours there, but ended up staying the whole day. The park was super clean and lots of wildlife to get up close and personal with.

My boyfriend and I visited Gatorland in June and did the trainer for the day.
It was an amazing experience. Worth every cent. It was one of the highlights of our entire week in Florida.
Michael who was our guide was wonderful! He was warm, energetic and so passionate. He made the entire experience great as he answered all our questions and gave us tons of education..,never once rushing us.
He made us feel completely comfortable and at home.
The overall park was really well tended to and all the animals were very well taken care of.
We would highly recommend Gatorland for anyone who wants to get up close and personal with some of the exciting animals that Florida has to offer!

“Fantastic Experience”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

My wife and i came here on the 1st june 2013 and done the trainer for a day package! it was a fantastic experience,our trainer Michael was awesome a great guy,funny and kept us at ease all the way through it. His knowledge of these amazing animals and reptiles was immense! We got took into the park before opening time and got to hold baby gators,snakes,scorpions and spiders! We then got to sit on a gator's back which i had to try and get him out the water first which was really hard. In the end though we got plenty of great photos and i got to wear michael's hat which was cool! The best experience by far on my orlando trip and would come back and do the zip line and also the night line! Once again a big shout out to Michael who made it a very educational and pleasant stay and i hope to see him again because he was really a cool,awesome guy.....thanx again the couple from scotland! why so serious!

“gators gators gators”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

Great time at Gatorland we visit each time we make it down to Florida it is better each time they have added a live panther exhibit also you will see tortoise, crocodile, birds, and pythons and lots and lots of gators. Great for kids they have a train, walking paths, you can feed the alligator's, zip lines, you can feed the birds they will land right on your arms and hands, gator wrestling and a close in counters show and more. Would recommend a day visit here.

“Gatorland Trip”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

We visited Gatorland, Orlando in April 2013. It was really exciting. There were plenty of things to see. There was a show of Alligator wrestling. The host was very funny and exciting. The shows were exciting too. I'd recommend Gatorland in Orlando,Fl.
