"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.

"It was ok"
June 2018
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.

We stopped by on the way back from Disney and couldn’t believe what a wonderful time we had. Sherry was wonderful and a great help! The bunnies were adorable—especially Yoda😄. The kids had a great time, as well as the adults!

We had a great time at GatorWorld. My 11 year old son and I came to Florida from California specifically to see this and a couple other Reptile venues. It's small but there was enough to see to stay about an hour. We liked the drive-through part and was happy that you could go around more than once. It's kind of small and we wanted to really get our fill. After the drive around part you end at a main house area with a few more exhibits. We liked watching the babies in the front tank and also got to feed some young gators with a fishing pole (though I'm still questioning the use of hotdogs for their treats???). We also enjoyed feeding the goats and I'm glad I had a good supply of quarters for the feed machine! We took a lot of photos and really liked our visit. It was about an hour drive from Orlando where we stayed but it was a very nice and easy drive on the Turnpike. They said they hope to build it up more over the coming years.

Just went there and it was fun. The kids had a good time. We pet a gator held it, and fed gators. We held bunnies, pet chickens and pet goats. A little pricey but for something to try once it was worth it.
