from Gatorland Night Shine Tour
Florida Nightlife is about to get WILD!

Your Gator Night Shine adventure takes you deep into the domain of Florida's most famous reptile, the alligator! Armed with only a flashlight and a few hot dogs, you bravely make your way along the winding wooden walkways of Gatorland's Alligator Breeding Marsh. The sounds of the night come alive around you as the rustle of feathers overhead and the splashing of water nearby signal that you are not alone. Turning your flashlight towards the water, you suddenly become aware of hundreds of hungry, glowing, red eyes slowly making their way closer… it's now your turn to experience the "Real Florida." A fun and educational tour for kids of all ages, Gatorland's Gator Night Shine Tour is one swamp stompin' adventure you don't want to miss!

Honestly wasn’t expecting too much but was pleasantly surprised. Well maintained and lots of alligators! Shows were corny but cute. The swamp was was impressive if you like nature. Loved all the signs and explanations. Fed the gators multiple ways. Was a good time!

We have been to Orlando twice now as a family and came here both times. On our latest visit we left here until the final day but I wish we came here more than just once this visit. I must admit I enjoy here more than the parks. My favourite part was walking through the lagoon part and a Raccoon followed us all the way through. I can't wait to visit again.

We had a really fun day out here. Lots to explore and lots of walking. We paid extra for the swamp buggy ride/tour though- what a let down. Very disappointed with this, but the rest of the day was great. The shows throughout were also good fun and very brave demonstrations.

Had a few days with my husband before a convention. Decided to show him some of the other sights of Orlando besides a theme park. Used the Orlando Explorer pass and chose Gatorland since all the other choices were kid oriented. What we thought would be a cheesy gator park turned out to be a fun filled day. My last visit was 30 years ago when I was a kid and this park was a pond and some gator pits. They have since expanded to make this place more of a preserve. Beyond seeing gators the size of buses, the amount of birds and wildlife here made the whole experience very "Florida" We spent an extra $15/person to do the "Swamp Buggy" ride and had the time of our lives. The two ladies running the show were hilarious!! And even though we were speeding over bumps and turns, it is appropriate for all ages. As adults, we were able to entertain ourselves for almost the entire day there.

"Great Day Out with the Kiddos"

This isn't as educational as it used to be, which I loved, and the humour is a bit TOO corny...but still a great place to visit with young children. Go early so the gators are still hungry. They were a bit lackluster at feeding time later in the day. This was a day off from the crowd and rush of the Disney complex. Worth the investment with a 6, 5, and 3 year old in tow.
