Don't forget swim clothes and a towel, the kids will definitely want to splash around in the sprinkler area.

It was a very fun half day visit. Our kids loved feeding the giant tortoise (cost $5 extra to feed them with a carrot on a stick, totally worth it!). We visited in December and the gators were a little less active due to the cooler weather, but it was still fun. The shows were ok, which is why I gave them 4 stars. Fortunately they are short, like 15 to 20 minutes. They were semi-educational with semi-lame jokes. But still cool to see the gators in action. The gator wrestling was the best show of the bunch. You can get your picture taken on a gator for an extra $7. I did feel like there was a little bit of "nickle and diming" going on with the extra costs to feed the animals, get pictures, etc, but this seems...

whoa.... wow....   This place is so amazing I hit enter too early and it posted! FORGET those OTHER ATTRACTIONS...   You can bring the Mouse and feed it to the gators.... I hear famous mice taste like chicken! I have been to many places as a bus driver, this tops all of them!   Part of this is ironic, I was telling a friend that I hadn't seen any gators and then minutes later I was driving to this place with some kids from church! They even have an Ex-husband eating gator... That's Chester. He's about 1000lbs with a bite force of 3000lbs... that means ex-husband gone in one gulp! (devious heckling sounds) (and sorry ladies, he has eat any ex-husbands...yet!) Don't worry, you will see Gators... these rejected...

This was seriously AWESOME fun for the whole family! There are also so many birds that are not even part of Gatorland but that have decided to make it th...

This place was more fun than what I expected! Just keep in mind that you'll end up paying extra for the other things once you stepped inside the park. Pure evil I tell you! At the admissions gate, you will have your choice of buying a regular admission ticket for around $21, or a "Grunt adult package" for $31.94. I would recommend the grunt package because this lets you ride the train, feed the alligators, and sit on an alligator for a photo. However, the grunt package can't have any discounts. One of the first things I did was feed the alligators. They give you four turkey wieners to feed any gator in the park (except for the ones behind glass). I thought this was really cool and I know that kids will get a...

I've been to nearly all the parks and attractions in Orlando, and this one - perhaps surprisingly to most - is probably one of my favorites. It's inexpensive, there are a ton of discounts (FL resident, military, student and AAA) and who DOESN'T like seeing a million alligators? The one thing about Gatorland I love is that even though it's an attraction, it seems more like a gator sanctuary to me. Actually, there are tons of fish and other native birds that live there that aren't part of the exhibits. Other than gators, they have a petting zoo, parakeets, flamingos, turtles, snakes, and peacocks. I'm sure I'm forgetting something. They just opened a zipline attraction; I haven't tried it yet but it looks pret...

I love this place! If it wasn't for the crazy humidity, I probably would have wanted to spend more time there. They have a variety of birds which were fun to see and also a petting zoo. The birds are rather aggressive, in particular the storks. I would watch out for small children with food, as they will not hesitate to chase a kid down for whatever tasty morsel they have in their hand. The Jumperoo Show was a lot of fun, as was the Gator Wrestling. They don't do anything too crazy, but it was fun to see them interacting with the animals. I was a little disappointed when I didn't see any gator grilling going on. I think they didn't have that stuff out because it wasn't a particularly busy day. I did try the ...

interesting place to spend an afternoon. the three shows kept me entertained, silly, informative and fun. I love those little baby gators and the giant white gators. you can buy turkey hotdogs to feed them, but be aware of those crazy birds, they followed me around to steal those from the gators!! it was cute at first, but after a while, I w...
