Gatorland is an awesome place to visit and they have updated there location with many exhibits. I did the night shine and what a great experience. We were able to touch animals and get into the gators pens. Feeding the alligators at night is really fun. This tour will get you up close and personal.

If you have a resident ID now is the time to hit Gatorland for just $10 per person. We enjoyed a few hours here in the boiling heat. Our 8 year old daughter-- science buff-- was delighted and even our 4 year old was intrigued. They especially liked the shows and the "albino" gators. The staff was nice as well but there were a ton of bees going around and it was of concern for my 10 month old. If you think of it more as a zoo than a theme park you are going to enjoy it. There is also a water feature sprayground that the kids like although I found it to be a bit dirty. Don't forget to pack your swimsuits and towels.

The first time I visited was 12 years ago. At that time, they had a pond with dozens and dozens of gators and they held meat high over the water and the crocs would come all the way out of the water to get it. It was cool. Now the show is sad. Apparently, PETA has been here and was concerned over overcrowding and the crocs being exploited and hurt as they fall onto others. Now they have four in the pond and they hold the chicken inches over the water so only the head comes up. Don't get me wrong, still a good place to go but not at the price they charge. They have a large swamp area with crocs and gators spread around so it's not that bad but they should charge $10. I probably would have put 3 stars if I had not been here before when the show was much better.

We enjoyed gatorland very much. The kids enjoyed feeding the alligators and birds. Lots of alligators of various sizes to see, some quite large. Some crocodiles as well. The jumping show was impressive although the wrestling show was a little uncomfortable to see as the alligator did not appear to be a willing participant.
