“Relaxing and Enjoyable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 December 2013

My family loved it! We have three children starting at 13 to 3. Each one really enjoyed themselves. My husband loved it, because it was a rest from the theme parks. Theme parks were fun, but this was a really relaxed setting for family time. We watched each show, and walked the trails and saw two snakes in the woods. My kids were thrilled! I also realized when I got home that the kids cups were MADE IN THE USA and BPA FREE. Thank you Gatorland staff and owners for supporting your country!

“Great day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2013 via mobile

We are returning from a trip to Orlando. We visited Gatorland on Saturday. It was a pleasant day away from all the other orlando attractions. Lots of Gators and wildlife to see. I wish I was brave enough to so the zipline. It looked fun.

“Traditional 'Old Florida' Attraction”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2013

In all my many visits to Orlando, like many other visitors who seek something different away from the usual theme park fare, I drove past ‘Gatorland’ thinking that it wasn't for me. How wrong could I be! With miles of walkways it's a great day out to stroll and get that ‘once in a lifetime’ up close photograph of the original Florida inhabitants; Turtles, Birds, Snakes, Deer, Panther and the Florida Gator the park is named after.
Free parking is provided and adult entry, at the time of this review, was $27.00 reduced to $10.00 for those over 55 years old. Pretty reasonable for this part of Florida and well worth the visit.

“It was pretty cool”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2013 via mobile

It was a pretty cool attraction. Lots of gators and crocks. There was also other wildlife such as birds and snakes to see. The shows were pretty funny and entertaining. All of the kids seemed to love them. Bring extra money. The zip lines were awesome but not cheap and not included. You can also take a relaxing train ride around the park for an extra charge. There are lots of neat photo ops where you can hold gators, snakes, etc. They even have a place to purchase snacks to feed the gators which is fun since you can't do that in the wild. Gatorland was one of those fun places to visit in Florida. It has been around longer than any other attraction in central FL. Lots of history and very interesting.
