August 2018
This was our 2nd time at Gator World. The first time I got tickets off Groupon and it was just myself and spouse. It was very affordable and we liked it. We ended up taking our daughter because of the animals to pet. She enjoyed the rabbits and goats more than anything, which was a bit pricey for $22. For the amount of things they have and it being in the middle of nowhere I would reduce ticket prices.

There was 5 in our group. From start to finish we was there only 30 min. And only 10 of that was interacting with animals. Cost way to much for very little entertainment.

We spent a lovely time at GatorWorld in Wildwood...Never saw so many alligators. Kids had fun feeding alligators, goats, chickens,goats and pigs. Also they loved sitting in the rabbit house holding all the rabbits. The staff was friendly and informative. A very successful time.

"Not worth the $$"

It’s way over priced for what it is. It is very small and I am not sure why you need to stay in the car and drive around. It is the same set up as any zoo we have been too. There is very little to do. One of the highlights they advertise is a stuffed alligator. Wish we knew that before we paid. The 2 male workers there were not very good with kids. The guy with the bunnies were very rough with them. For a family of five, we spent almost $100 and spent maybe 30 mins there. Not worth the $$$.

We chose to just drive though and stay in our car. Lots of alligators - over 400, of all sizes. Many postings of facts relating to gators. Alligators rest 90% of the time, so there’s not much movement. No excitement. Well worth $19, but not a nickel more. I’m glad we went there.probably won’t go back.

"If your driving by and have never seen an alligator"

The initial drive through are is incredibly short, to the tune of 2 minutes. Then you park, see a few very small gators in an enclosed glass cage, followed by a 2 minute picture with a mini gator. After this you can pet a bunny or two, then look at some roaming chickens and pet a goat..The website is impressive. The park is not. The This is approx 60 minutes from Orlando. Not worth the drive.. That is not a mean thing to say, it is a fact. If your passing by maybe???? But do not drive all the way from Orlando!!!!!! Go to Gatorland in Orlando.. $7 more.. Sooo worth it!!!!!!!!!!. That place is very kool!!!!

Don’t believe the negative reviews. Our family had a great time. Yes the car tour is short, but you do see over 200 gators of all sizes. The petting zoo is so cute. The animals are all friendly. Loved the goats, chickens and bunnies. People complaining about paying 25 cents to feed them are just ridiculous. We made such a fun time of it. And the kids loved holding the baby gators. We would go back and recommend it to others. Clean bathrooms and friendly staff. Give them a try!
