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.

"Gaterland Visit"
November 2018
Value for money, shows we saw were entertaining, you have the chance to handle some of the animals if you want to, there are places to eat or get coffee and a snack, it's a nice way to spend an afternoon.... Sadly heavy rain cut short our visit, even the Crocs took cover.

"Gatorland - definitely worth the stop"
October 2018
We visited Gatorland with our kids (ages 9, 7, 4, 2) and parents and it was a GREAT visit.

We bought the basic entry (through Reserve Orlando - adult tickets; and ticketsatwork.com - kids tickets) for a good discount. Then we bought an extra package the day of that included "wrestling" an alligator, feeding them and riding the train.

What we loved:
the shows: we say 3 different shows, all entertaining, just the right length, fun, and engaging.
the train: our littlest guy (and grandpa) loves trains, so this was perfect for him.
feeding the gators: wow...they certainly take a bite of those hot dogs! Seeing the show where they jump for chicken was...well, YIPE!!!
the staff: there were lots of staff everywhere and they all were very helpful and friendly
the spray park: be sure to take some extra clothes for the end of the day and let the kids play...this was a fantastic spray park!

I was a little worried about safety. Ever since that poor little guy got eaten a few years ago at the Disney resort I'm terrified for my kids...but THIS PLACE WAS SO SAFE!!! There are no worries at all about my kids accidentally being somewhere they shouldn't be.

Because of the ages of our kids we didn't do the zip line or the swamp tours - but they looked fun.
Overall: a great visit I would highly recommend. Wow! Some of those gators are really huge!

Tip: You'll probably need about 3-4 hours at least to see all the shows and do the things included in general admission. If you want to do some of the extra activities, you need closed toe shoes - not even closed toe sandals - but actual shoes. Having extra cash along the way for photos and feeding snacks would be good.

"Zip lining "
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed May 18, 2019 NEW
We went looking for something different to do. Zip Lining over gators? Why not! We tried to make reservations on line, hit a glitch so called to see if our payment went through. The salesperson was really great, gave us a small discount “for our trouble” and finished our reservation over the phone. The Zip-line crew was friendly, knowledgeable and fun! Great with our Grandson, who was very nervous about this new adventure. We had a great time! Watched the gator show, and walked out on the boardwalk path. Very enjoyable afternoon.

Reviewed May 16, 2019 NEW
We spent over 3 hours enjoying the park. We arrived around 10:30 and that was in time for the close encounters up close. We saw 2 other close up Presentations after. All were great. We walked around the park after looking at the various displays. We found the exhibit write ups educational. We did not wrestle the gators but watched the pro doing it. Glad we went there.

YoU can purchase sausages to feed the gators with, kids enjoy doIng this, also a splash area for the younger children so remember to take a change of clothes and towel for the little ones.
