Gatorland Photos (11)

If shows like Animal Planet and the Crocodile Hunter leave you yearning to experience these fascinating animals for yourself, then Gatorland is just waiting for you! This adventure park is home to the most amazing creatures, and a visit here gives guests the opportunity to learn about them and have a fun time exploring. 

There are plenty of things to do and see at Gatorland. Whether you're 3 or 30, there is something to your liking. Gatorland is home to over 2,000 American Alligators and even houses the largest collection of rare, white leucistic alligators with three of the only 12 in the world. There's also the new Baby Gator Marsh where the newborn gators get their start in life.

Gatorland not only features tons of alligators, but it is also home to other animals that are available for viewing, and it is a popular addition to many family Orlando vacation packages.

Crocodiles: Living side-by-side with the American Alligators, these crocs are beautiful. There are also Nile, Cuban and Saltwater Crocodiles that live in the Jungle Crocs area. There's also a giant American Crocodile named Bonecrusher, the son of the original Bonecrusher who was one of the largest crocodiles in the world.

Wild Cats: For those who are more interested in the furry critters, head out to see two beautiful Florida Panthers: Neiko and Lucy. They help to educate visitors on the importance of protecting species. Then, check out Osceola and Abiaka, two male Florida bobcats who inhabit Bobcat Bayou. 

Birds: There are many opportunities to see our feathery friends at Gatorland! Head to Parrot Playground to see Amazon parrots, blue and gold macaws, and cockatoos; the Very Merry Aviary filled with hundreds of budgies (parakeets) that you can feed and interact with; the Gatorland Express Train Station where Athena, a Great Horned Owl, takes roost; the Emu Enclosure; and Flamingo Island. 

Snakes and Critters: At the Mile of Monsters area, guests can see tons of scaly critters. There are snakes, scorpions, toads, lizards, and more! There are also Up-Close Encounter Shows where you can meet and learn about some of the residents.

Tortoises: Gatorland has been home to tortoises since the 1950s when park founder, Owen Godwin, acquired a giant tortoise named Albert. Since then, Gatorland has housed many tortoises which guests can see and even watch them being fed. 

There are also other activities guests can embark upon for an additional cost:

  • Adventure Hour
  • Screamin' Gator Zipline
  • Rookie Wrestling
  • Gator Gauntlet
  • Gator Night Shine

Once you've seen the beautiful animals and taken your time exploring the park, fill up your appetite with a variety of delicious food options. Pearl's Good Eats, the Snackbar, the Fudge Kitchen, a coffee shop, and a general store all provide tons of options. 

For a fun day out exploring some of Florida's most beautiful creatures, make sure to give Gatorland a visit.

If you are traveling to central florida - make sure you spend a day at gatorland. My twelve year old and myself took part in the trainer for a day program - it was a birthday gift for him. It was well worth the money !!!! We got up close and personal (holding, feeding, wrestling) the gators and a ton more of hands on with other creatures. This was an experience of a lifetime. Our guide was great and took the time to answer all of my families questions. Disney is always great - but knock a day off the park hopper and make arrangements to do the trainer for a day at gatorland. The staff is gatorland is very friendly and couldn't do enough for us.
