from Gatorland Night Shine Tour
Florida nightlife is about to get wild! The Gator Night Shine adventure takes you deep into the domain of Florida's most famous reptile, the alligator!

Starting at dusk and armed with only a flashlight and gator food, 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!
