Description

from Gatorland
Known internationally as the Alligator Capital of the World, Gatorland is a 110-acre alligator theme park and wildlife preserve, located just minutes away from Sea World, Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, and the Orlando International Airport on US 441 near the Orlando - Kissimmee border.

Providing affordable family entertainment since 1949, Gatorland has been a vacation destination for millions of visitors from all over the world with its incredible display of huge alligators and crocodiles, train ride, aviary, breeding marsh and bird sanctuary, petting zoo, nature walk, gift shop, and one-of-a-kind shows such as the world famous Gator Jumparoo.

So c'mon inside... your adventure awaits!

We’ve got gators & crocodiles, birds & bears and now the all-new Gator Gully Splash Park has opened at Gatorland, giving guests one more reason to visit Orlando’s only attraction with bite and attitude!

Gatorland's Gator Gully Splash Park is the area's most unique splash zone featuring unusual water sources crafted to resemble some of the park's most popular residents.

Over a quarter-acre and ready to soak, the splash park features a row of giant egrets spilling water from their beaks; dueling water guns mounted on the backs of two giant gators lined up and waiting for a friendly squirtfest with your neighbor; an ol’ jalopy overrun with water and places to splash; a bucket tree that is just perfect for a slow dash and spray for the little ones; and Grandma’s Wet Shack, a veritable fountain of water-based fun for kids of all ages to splash, squirt and play in truckloads of cool H2O.

"Gatorland"
July 2019
One of the best places we went to on vacation!! There is so much more than gators here. They have many other animals, petting zoo, zip line, rides, etc. We need to come back just to see/do everything.

The park was clean and staff was friendly, comical, and knowledgeable about animals. The kids wanted to see alligators and there were plenty there to see. The shows were really good and educational. The discounted tickets really helped, will definitely revisit next trip to Florida.

"Wonderful!!"
July 2019
This was our family’s first trip to Florida and we were so happy to make the decision to visit Gatorland!! The park has tons of shaded areas, fans, water fountains and a spray park which helped with the 105 degrees. The staff were well educated and appeared to enjoy their work! If we visit Florida again we will definitely return to Gatorland!!!

"Fun fun fun...but..."
June 2019
My two year old had a great time. As did mom and dad. Nice, clean and not too big. If you want to see gators you will see an abundance (among other animals). Crew doing shows were fantastic. I would say the only draw back would be the entry. They do not have a separate entrance for those that already had tickets. Additionally buying off of a non-Gatorland site such as this is frowned upon. They make it quite difficult and will only accept printed tickets. We ended up having to buy through Gatorland to get in.

"Gatorland is Great"
June 2019
We had a blast at gatorland. This was our 2nd visit and our friends first. Ever since we went a few years ago we have been wanting to go back and recommend it to everyone. It really shows another side of Florida beyog the glam and glitz of the amusement parks.this place is good old fashion fun from the cool shows to machines that make wax Gators.

By wife who used to be a docent at the Atlanta Zoo was totally blown away by our well done this 'zoo' is. It is so much more. For nature lovers, be sure to walk on the boardwalk through the headwaters of the Everglades and walk the boardwalks around the marshes containing lots of gators and birds.

Last time I was here was 16 years ago and has got bigger. If you are over 55 you get a discount. Make sure you spend the $10 for feeding the gators. It’s actually worth the experience S with most attractions food and drink is expensive. Easy 5 hours spent here

"A Break From the Crazy Parks"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed September 12, 2019 NEW
I took a friend and her 4 year-old grandson here while they were in town. Price was very reasonable since I’m a senior and a Florida resident. We paid the $2 extra per person to ride the train because the little one loves trains. However, it wasn’t worth it because the train engine was so loud that we could not hear the narrative. We were up front but I asked the couple in the back and they said they couldn’t hear either. We only watched a small portion of one of the shows. The man showed the inside of the gator’s mouth. I didn’t feel that the gators were being (too) exploited. We saw a lot of gators and birds and a few other animals. We didn’t get to see the whole park as the 4 year-old was very tired. Too much vacation I think! There were plenty of places to sit and relax in the shade. There was a children’s wet playground but we didn’t use it since our little one fell asleep. Since I live nearby, I will go back one day soon with my husband to take another look around. I love nature and animals so I’d like to see the animals we missed. If you have extra time and want a more relaxing day, I would go here.

One of the least expensive ways to have a nice day out at a theme area in Orlando. Interesting presentations that are educational as well. Don't waste your money on most of the extras like the dune buggy swamp ride. I would pass on the train too, unless you have some youngsters that really love a train ride.

During a family holiday we decided to take a break from the theme parks and visit Gatorland with my daughter (14) and son (11). I was concerned that it would be too exposed and hot for us all to walk round and enjoy a day at the park but I was pleasantly surprised at the covered walk ways and layout of the park. It’s not huge but there’s lots to see and do - the entrance fee is reasonable but there’s a ton of extra’s so expect to be parting with at least another $20 per person to feed the gators, wander through the birds, stroke the tortoise, wrestle the gator or have a photo with a croc!! My daughters really nervous around animals so this suited us perfectly, often just one parent and my son did the added activities and we weren’t paying for things she didn’t want to do. For us, this was a hidden gem and a wonderful day out with enough shows and activities to keep us busy for an entire day!
