from Gatorland
For more than 70 years, Gatorland has been creating Fun, Smiles, and Special Memories for millions of visitors who have entered through its world-famous gator mouth entrance.

Located between Orlando and Kissimmee on the South Orange Blossom Trail, Gatorland is one of Central Florida's classic attractions and provides a unique and natural alternative to the larger theme parks of today. Founded by the late Owen Godwin in 1949 and still privately owned by his family today, Gatorland is a 110-acre theme park and wildlife preserve, combining "Old Florida" charm with exciting, new exhibits and entertainment, making it Orlando's best half-day attraction®.

Known internationally as the "Alligator Capital of the World®," Gatorland provides affordable family fun showcasing thousands of alligators and crocodiles, including four extremely rare leucistic "white" alligators. The free-flight aviary, petting zoo, one-of-a-kind animal shows, natural alligator breeding marsh, and the "thrilling" Screamin' Gator Zip Line will ensure your day will be filled with Fun, Smiles, and Special Memories!

Get up-close and personal with gators, crocs, birds, turtles, zebu, deer, and more! Enjoy one-of-a-kind shows like the Alligators – Legends of the Swamp as one of the bravest daredevils at Gatorland takes the stage with a 6- 8 foot alligator to demonstrate the amazing survival features of this legendary creature. Cheer on the stars of the famous Gator Jumparoo as they jump 4 to 5 feet out of the water. Then head on over to the Up-Close Encounters Show, where you can expect to find the unexpected!

Feed the lovable animals at the petting zoo and the aviary. Then head out to the Swamp Walk or Alligator Breeding Marsh and Bird Rookery, where nature is in charge, and every visit is unique!

Don’t forget to visit Pearl’s Smokehouse for some good ole fashion comfort food before you head on over to the award-winning Gift Shop, where you can find everything from t-shirts and plush animals to specialty items and limited-edition pieces.

Gator Jumparoo Show
Thrills and chills abound as some of the largest alligators in the world actually jump four to five feet out of the water to retrieve food in this famous one-of-a-kind show. Learn more about alligators and crocodiles and their awesome powers. Watch as giant alligators jump high enough out of the water to actually snatch food from the trainer's hand. A must-see for the entire family!

Alligators – Legend of the Swamp show
Watch as one of the bravest daredevils at Gatorland takes the stage with a 6-8 foot alligator to demonstrate this legendary creature's amazing survival features! This show is not to be missed!

Up Close Encounters
You never know what kind of animal you might be introduced to next at the Up-close Encounters Show! You'll get to meet fascinating creatures from around the globe as well as Florida's native wildlife - including some of the most dangerous snakes alive!

Night Shine Tour
Experience the sights and sounds of alligators lurking in the water just a few feet away on this unique and exciting 1-hour night tour. Armed with just a flashlight and a few hot dogs, walk along the winding wooden walkways of Gatorland's alligator breeding marsh. Hear the sounds of the night all around — the rustling of feathers overhead, the splashing of water below. Turn a flashlight toward the water to see hundreds of hungry, glowing red eyes slowly moving closer. It’s feeding time!

"Fun Family Adventure"
April 2022
My son and I were on our Mommy & Me Trip and stopped at Gatorland for a full day of adventures! We spent our time exploring the exhibits (including baby, albino, leucistic, and normal as well as tortoises, birds, snakes, etc), feeding birds in the aviary, tasting Gator Bites at Pearl's, and watching the shows (Gator Jumparoo, Upclose Encounters, & Alligators-Legends of the Swamp). We also explored the Bog Walk, pet the goats, fed the emus, and took the train. So much to see and do!
