Thousands of alligators, birds, and crocodiles are on display. There are men who wrestle the alligators, and people can actually sit on an alligator for a picture. There are many live reptile species there. Staff very outgoing and will explain any questions you have. would recommend a visit for families.

We stopped at Gatorland for a "quick" tour and to stretch our legs while driving to the Atlantic for a day at the beach. We never made to the beach and spent a fun filled day at Gatorland! Food was good and reasonably priced. Attractions well maintained and animals cared for. Loved the entire day. Even had our picture taken with a baby alligator and snake, to our 7 year olds delight.

I've been an Orlando resident for 20+ years and had never visited Gatorland until this month. Thanks to a friend and her 3 year old grandson I can now check this wonderful taste of pre-Disney Florida off my bucket list. If you are expecting the flash and glamour of Disney, Universal, or Sea World then you will be disappointed. However, if you are expecting a laid back slice of Florida wildlife seasoned with a bit of touristy kitsch then you will have a great time. The Gator Jumparoo is a must. It's corny and low tech, but fun. You will get your fill of alligator viewing, with a lot of bird watching thrown in for good measure. If you have smaller kids definitely pack a spare set of clothes and a towel. They have a great fountain play area and I can guarantee your little one will want to play in it. For those times when the seniors and the kids are both getting cranky just hop on the train for a breezy spin around the park. Everyone will be a lot happier after it.

Gator land is a great place to take your family. You will observe everything within a couple of hours. We loved feeding the gators hot dogs (watch out for the storks, they will eat hot dogs and chase you), very merry aviary (birds eat seeds off a stick you hold, but be sure not to step on them) and feeding the goats❤️ Zipline was quite pricey compared to others in central FL. Overall a relaxing day with family.
