It was a fun place to visit. We recommend that you time the visit to see all 3 shows.the best show was the gator wrestling. This review is based on a 9 year old and his dad.

“It was really fun for the kids!”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

We really liked the shows! My 9 year old loved the aviary where parakeets fly all around you, lighting on your head and shoulders. You can buy sticks with birdseed for $1 to feed them. My four year old loved to see the big alligators!

“Excellent day out”
Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

We were really impressed by Gatorland on several levels. We read reviews that suggested this was half a day's entertainment, and while it isn't a full day we enjoyed a good 5-6 hours there today. My 7 and 9 year old daughters, my wife and I all enjoyed this park. The shows are good, the animals kept us very interested all day and the staff who we interacted with were really pleasant and accommodating.
One additional observation that we made was that there is significant shade at this park so even on days like today when it was very hot, we didn't feel uncomfortably exposed to the sun - this is something younger families might consider.
All in all, an excellent day and value for money too.

“Interesting Afternoon”
Reviewed 28 April 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Looking for something different? Want to get away from the overwhelming crowds of Disney? Want to feed birds from your hand or have a photo taken while sitting on a live alligator? This is the place. And the price is a quarter of other theme parks. A must do for an afternoon away maybe before a dinner show like we did.
