Everyone else has pretty much described how good it is. So don't be a fool and book it. I booked it online and saved a few $. The zip lineing was being offered for $ 55 on the day which seemed very good value for money. 1 recommendation from me. Buy the gator chow ( hot dogs) and take them up to the back of the park, where the " less over fed" crocodiles are and standby for some mayhem when u feed the Nile crocs.

As a family of 2 adults and 3 children we visited Gatorland on 7-9-13. After reading so many great reviews I thought it would be a great day. I was disappointed with the entire attraction.
We spent $110.00 for 5 people to enter the park. This is very overpriced for what they have to offer. Once inside there are additional fees for everything - from feeding the parakeets to riding the train.
The park overall is outdated especially the water attractions. There really is not enough to do for the price.
It was interesting to see the alligators but it doesn't take long to do and then there isn't much else left.

We moved here in December and had to check out Gatorland. We never made the effort before, as we used to visit Disney twice a year for the previous 3-4 years. I'm sad we didn't. It's a nice break from all of the true tourist attractions in central florida, and a neat way to learn about the wildlife Florida has to offer. It was quite a neat experience seeing THOUSANDS of alligators and different breeds of birds and snakes. They have a very cool bird house where you can go in for free, but feed the birds for $1 which is really neat. 5-6 of them will land on you as you feed them which delighted my daughter. They can be a little aggressive, but easily shooed away. You can also pay extra for a pass to sit on an alligator and hold is head, which was neat and my son got to brag to all his friends that he "wrestled a gator."

Excellent price and plenty to see. Our children (4 and 2 years old) enjoyed seeing the Alligators and being able to get so close to them was perfect for them to realise how big these impressive creatures are. Plenty of shaded areas and lots of animals to see. Very much worth a visit. We spent a few hours there and I would say it is good for between 2 hours and half a day.
