“Save your money!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014

Very disappointed in this experience. After paying a steep admission just to enter the facility I was shocked and insulted that they charged extra for everything but air to breathe. $2/train ride, $20/photo with a tiny snake/tiny gator, the photo girl wouldn't even let me run my finger over the snake unless I paid for a photo. The Gator Jumparoo show was cheesy and lame by no fault of the gators...less 'acting' more talking about the creatures! We've been to Gator Country in Beaumont, TX several times where you learn & experience all kinds of reptiles & gators for a fraction of the admission price to Gator Land in Orlando. Very disappointed, our day would have been better spent elsewhere.

“You gotta go to Gatorland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

This is a great half day visit. The shows are crazy-funny Southern entertainment, and a walk around the Park is easy. Loved the leucistic gator and the snakes. As much fun as the Jumpin' Croc Australian version near Darwin

“Gators Galore!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014

On arrival, I was a bit underwhelmed by the low tech entry area, but soon there were gators everywhere along with birds, snakes and other critters. We spent a very pleasant half day at the park roaming the 110 acres of ponds, swamps and gator habitats. Truly a fun and educational experience. Great staff who add a lot of comedy to the program but who truly respect and care for the animals. And it's the cheapest entertainment in Orlando. Highly recommended.

“Book the zip-lining in advance!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

You have siplining, alegator feed (hot dogs), and a little train that goes around the park and shows you gators that you cant see by walking.
Gators are extremely spoiled so dont expect much when you feed them.
