"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!

Tip: Open Rain or Shine! Great way to spend a rainy day, just come equipped with a poncho, waterproof shoes, and waterproof camera!

"Tripster is legit, Gatorland is fun"
February 2022
I went to a few review sites to make sure Tripster was legit, and I was assured enough to proceed. We saved money, the process was simple, and our tickets were easily accessible on my phone.

Think of Gatorland as a reptile zoo. This isn't Disney. But lots of gators and crocs and some snakes and cats and birds were entertaining viewing. A couple of shows were really fun. Worth spending the admission price and a few hours for a memorable experience.

"Gator Satisfaction!"
February 2022
We wanted to see alligators on our quick business trip to Orlando . The weather was bleh so we headed to Gatorland and it was great! We we’re all adults in our group but still everything was exciting to see. We loved the show with live alligators and a trainer .
It was worth the time we took and reasonable for the entrance fees.

Tip: The Swamp boardwalk is a lonnnggg walk . It’s neat for a few yards but no need to walk the entire loop . Feed the alligators it’s awesome
