Discover old Florida and experience the easiest way to see 400+ alligators in Central Florida in our 15-acre drive-through alligator park. Stay in the comfort of your car, rain or shine, with no walking. You'll see everything from baby gators to massive monsters in our no-kill park.

After the drive-thru, you can get out and see the baby gators, feed some hungry youth gators, and hold a gator. You are free to take as many pictures as you like with your devices. Be sure to take a selfie with Big Al our 13 foot, taxidermied gator. Then head out and enjoy our petting zoo full of lots of farm animals. We've also recently added a new Bunny Barn with plenty of baby bunnies to hold.

We are located one mile west of I-75 on State Road 44, near Wildwood and only 7 miles from The Villages.

Open 10:00 am to 4:00 pm ET Monday through Saturday. Closed on Sunday (Hours of operation may vary).

"Pricey"
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.

This was our first visit. Was looking to get out of the house during this virus. My daughter loved it. It wasn’t crowded so we were able to keep our distance from other visitors. Washing station & hand sanitizer was provided. Baby goats were so cute. We would go back. Check our this little family Farm.

What a great experience. It’s a family operation, so they give you a lot of personal time. You get to hold an alligator, bunnies, and even a baby goat. Such a great place.

First and foremost let me tell you the staff was super nice and engaging with the children. The place itself was terribly disappointing..several large pens filled with gators..not in habitat..the goats and chickens were friendly but since this was our 3rd different gator attraction I would not recommend it..basically just pens full of gators

Had a great time at Gatorworld with all my family! We got to see hundreds of gators (not kidding) in the driving tour and once done, we all got to hold a gator, pet them, feed them and spend some time in the petting zoo with bunnies, goats and various kinds of chicken. We even got to pet a turkey! ;) Had a great time and you can really tell the staff love all the animals. I would recommend it without hesitation!

Loved the drive thru tour. Had facts displayed about the area and information regarding the alligators in the enclosures. Staff was super friendly and very knowledgeable. I didn’t have any children in my group but the couple ahead of us did and they were great with the kid. First place I went to where you could actually feed the gators! Also had some unexpected guests wandering about. Not a big place but we were entertained for about an hour, would definitely do it again.
