Gatorland Photos (16)

If shows on Animal Planet leave you yearning to experience these fascinating animals for yourself, then Gatorland theme park is perfect for you! This adventure park is home to the most amazing creatures and a visit here gives you the opportunity to learn about them and have a fun time exploring. Your all-day admission into Gatorland includes the 110-acre theme park and wildlife preserve, three shows, all animal exhibits, and a kid zone! 

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 leucitic 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

At the park, you will see animals such as:

  • 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. 

The Gatorland shows are as follows...

  • Gator Jumparoo Show:

    Just like you've seen on TV, watch as massive alligators jump five feet out of the water to catch food! These gators will actually snatch the food right out of the trainer's hands. 
  • Alligators - Legend of the Swamp show:

    See one of the park's experienced trainers as they demonstrate the power and survival techniques of one of these beautiful animals. 
  • Up Close Encounters:

    See some of the craziest animals up close at this show. The handler will introduce you to dangerous snakes, Florida wildlife, and some of the most fascinating creatures the world has ever seen.

Gator Gully Kids Spash Park

Allow the kids to get their energy out by running around and playing in this fun spash park. There are buckets of water that splash down onto the ground, water guns, hoses, and alligator sculptures to climb on. Don't forget a swimsuit!

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

  • Adventure Hour

    : Get up close to giant alligators and venture into the breeding marsh for a behind-the-scenes tour. 
  • Screamin' Gator Zipline

    : Launch from seven stories high and ride along 1,200 feet of zip lines. 
  • Rookie Wrestling

    : Take a photo "wrestling" with a 6-8 foot gator! 
  • Gator Gauntlet

    : Fly 350 feet through the air while gliding over the alligators. 
  • Gator Night Shine

    : A 1-1.5 hour tour that takes you along the wooden walkways of the Alligator Breeding Marsh after dark. 

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.

"We absolutely love it."
June 16th was our second visit to gatorland in 14 months. We absolutely love it. We enjoy seeing the real animals in their real habitats. We saw breeding gators & birds with their newly hatched babies all in their natural surroundings. We will back next trip to florida. Gatorland is reality in a land of fantasy!

"Gatorland is timeless and it always offers something new each time you go"
We went to gatorland last august during our family vacation and it was still the greatest. I had spent a lot of time in florida as a child and visited gatorland several times each summer. It felt good when my children had their pictures taken in front of the entrance and i placed them next to the picture i had of myself in the same spot 30 years ago. Gatorland is timeless and it always offers something new each time you go, we will be visiting again this august and can't wait to take another generation of pictures when we go this time.

"make sure you spend a day at Gatorland."
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.
