14501 South Orange Blossom Trail

For more than 60 years, Gatorland has been creating Fun, Smiles, and Special Memories for millions of visitors who have entered through its world-famous gator mouth entrance. Located between Orlando and Kissimmee on the South Orange Blossom Trail, Gatorland is one of Central Florida's classic attractions, and provides a unique and natural alternative to the larger theme parks of today. Founded by the late Owen Godwin in 1949, and still privately owned by his family today, Gatorland is a 110-acre theme park and wildlife preserve, combining "Old Florida" charm with exciting, new exhibits and entertainment.

Known internationally as the "Alligator Capital of the World," Gatorland provides affordable family fun showcasing thousands of alligators and crocodiles including four extremely rare leucistic "white" alligators. The free-flight aviary, petting zoo, one of a kind animal shows, natural alligator breeding marsh, and the "thrilling" Screamin' Gator Zip Line will ensure your day will be filled with Fun, Smiles and Special Memories!

Gatorland was fun! But very hot!!!! Never got to ride the train around the park because it was way too long. Saw lots of alligators, big, small, and some albino Gators too! They also had a cool, huge, yellow boa constrictor that was just curled up in it's house. You could actually touch it! We paid a little extra to ride the train as many times as we wanted, got to sit on an actual alligator (they took a picture of you sitting on the gator, but if you wanted you could buy the picture for $5 or $10 dollars) and feed the gators (they give you like 4-5 hot dogs)! They do have lots of shade and areas you can buy food. They also have bathrooms, which were clean. Good for young kids and adults too.

Loved going here. The park has quite a few things to do from Zip-lining to feeding the Gators, to even going on a back woods monster truck ride! There is plenty of educational spots throughout the park. The signs throughout the park are hilarious! The food is wonderful compared to most other parks and is priced way more reasonably which is a huge plus. There is even a "mini" water park for the kids(and adults) to cool off if your there in the height of the summer months so bring a towel. All in all a really nice park, well worth the money. I would definitely recommend!

It's an old Florida road side attraction with Plenty of gators both big and small. If you want to get up close to some really big gators safely there's no other place. Take a little train ride or try out the swamp buggy trail, for the little ones there's a nice area for them to cool off and get wet. If you're adventurous swing from the trees over the gators just pick up your feet.

We love Gatorland! A ton of gators, as you might guess, but also emus you can feed by hand, beautiful panthers and bobcats, nesting marsh birds (with eggs and chicks in spring), huge tortoises, a petting zoo, playground and more! I also love the playful attitude of the staff and how they keep a "naturalist" approach to everything. I was skeptical about gator wrestling, for instance, because I love animals and don't care to see them exploited. But they use the show as an opportunity to educate the public about alligators as well as entertain. I still would rather not see them wrestled for entertainment, but we did learn a lot about these amazing creatures. My son, 8, loves it here.

Gatorland is fun to visit. It's slow paced and easy to navigate everything in a day's time. Food & drink is fairly priced and tastes good. Employees are very friendly! Something new is you can get free cups of ice cold water at Pearl's Smokehouse if you request it. In 2017 you couldn't get that. This is a much appreciated addition with this Florida heat and since Gatorland doesn't have but a couple of water fountains. My family usually visits once a year and we really enjoy it. It's a nice change from the usual hectic theme parks. The new expansions are wonderful! I highly suggest you check them out.
