Loved going here. The park has quite a few things to do from Zip-lining to feeding the Gators, to even going on a back woods monster truck ride! There is plenty of educational spots throughout the park. The signs throughout the park are hilarious! The food is wonderful compared to most other parks and is priced way more reasonably which is a huge plus. There is even a "mini" water park for the kids(and adults) to cool off if your there in the height of the summer months so bring a towel. All in all a really nice park, well worth the money. I would definitely recommend!
We love Gatorland! A ton of gators, as you might guess, but also emus you can feed by hand, beautiful panthers and bobcats, nesting marsh birds (with eggs and chicks in spring), huge tortoises, a petting zoo, playground and more! I also love the playful attitude of the staff and how they keep a "naturalist" approach to everything. I was skeptical about gator wrestling, for instance, because I love animals and don't care to see them exploited. But they use the show as an opportunity to educate the public about alligators as well as entertain. I still would rather not see them wrestled for entertainment, but we did learn a lot about these amazing creatures. My son, 8, loves it here.
One of the best attractions in the Orlando area! This place has something for everyone. There's beautiful scenery, tons of different animals, and lots of educational opportunities. Definitely purchase the "grunt package" so you have an opportunity to enjoy all the park has to offer - feeding gators, a picture during the wrestling show, and unlimited train rides. For the little ones, there is a decent sized splash pad, so pack a change of clothes. We are definitely appreciative of all the seats in the shade, misting fans, and yummy refreshments.
This was fun for all ages. An affordable park that takes as little or long as you would like, and the food is reasonably priced with a huge selection (I recommend the food station all the way to the back right of the park). My kiddo got the Jr ticket that allowed him free rides on the train, food for feeding the gators (which he LOVED), and a photo sitting on one during "Gator Wrestling". The bird aviary where you feed the birds was a huge hit with my 6 month old. The wrestling show was informative and funny; the staff did a great job. The gator jumping was a bit disappointing honestly, and the skit wasn't even funny, so it was the most disappointing part. Being able to walk through the swamplands, feed gators and see all of the egrets and other birds nesting with eggs and hatchlings was nice too. The large cats, coon, and owl gave a little extra, and the water area was nice for the kids to cool down in. We would definitely return.
Gatorland is a must visit destination. It has a tongue-in-cheek Florida native attitude. They take good care of all of the animals. You won't just see gators. There are crocodiles, snakes, tortoises, Florida panthers, a variety of birds, and more. You'll see gators both large and small. There are numerous opportunities for feeding gators at varying price points. If you like a thrill ride, try the swamp buggy tour. It is WELL worth the price for a 15 minute ride.
