Gatorland Discount Tickets [Save $8 Per Ticket]
The Alligator Capital of the World!
The 110 acre park is one of the Florida classics, as you'll immerse yourself with the famous Florida everglades environment.
You'll have an up close look at colossal wildlife such as alligators & crocodiles, watch shows full of thrills, see exotic birds in the bird rookery and even visit the petting zoo!
Breeding Marsh & Observation Tower
The 10 acre breeding mash showcases 100 females and 30 male alligators that allow them to roam in a natural environment.
A walkway was built through it which gives you the ability to safely explore and see the different gators from a few feet away.
Bird Rookery in the Breeding Marsh
One of the coolest features of this it is that it is so natural that birds routinely nest and raise their babies here (above the water).
Why do birds do that? Since gators afford them (and their babies) protection from raccoons, possums, otters, skunks, they naturally gravitate towards this area.
Today there are over 1,000 active bird nests in Gatorland.
Conveniently located in the center of the walkway, the observation tower is also a big part of this experience as you'll be able to see gators from ground level, or climb your way up 3 stories to get a big picture view of the park and the marsh.
White Gator Swamp
Have you ever seen an albino gator? Well, you'll be able to see a few of them here!
In this area, the gators are more laid back and there are different signs explaining how their discoloration occurs, how this affects them and many more interesting facts.
If you are an information seeker, make sure you stop by here.
Up Close Encounters
You'll be sitting down in a miniature stadium with your eyes hooked to what is happening on stage.
Visitors from the audience are chosen at random to find out what is in the box!
You'll be able to see animals from all over the world and if you're lucky, you'll even be able to touch them.
Make sure you come in early to ensure you are sitting in the shade!
Stompin' Gator Off Road Adventure
Hop in a 12 foot high, custom made off road monster vehicle for a 15 minute ride full of hilarious-ness and thrills.
This ride will take you through 'Gator Gardens', a fictional park that takes over a swamp buggy business from a new Gatorland character named Swampy Sal.
The tour guides take guests off-road for an adventure full of twists and turns, as a comedic plot plays out between the vehicle drivers and on-board guides as they search for Swampy Sal.
There are 3 different off road monster vehicles that you can choose from, each with a distinct name as they are named from actual gators and crocs from Gatorland including Bonecrusher ℠, Cannibal Jake, and Swamp Ghost ℠.
Screamin' Gator Zip Line
This zipline ride navigates tower to tower to different checkpoints as you slowly are introduced to wildlife, longer distances, and higher altitudes.
Remember the breeding marsh we talked about earlier? By the end of the ride you'll be ziplining over that same alligator breeding marsh, containing 100+ gators.
You can learn more about this zipline here.
Although the name of the park is Gatorland, they also contain several beautiful large cats.
Neiko and Lucy were both born in a rescue and rehabilitation facility in 2006 and were brought to the park 7 years later to help educate the public on the importance of protecting the species.
These Bobcats can jump to incredible heights, so make sure you don't blink or you may miss it!
Osceola and Abiaka were rescued from captivity in 2014 and are an affectionate pair who love interacting with the animal care staff.
Jabari and Lomasi both have different backgrounds as Jabari was a 3 month old kitten in need of a home, while Lomasi was found as a wild abandoned kitten.
They were socialized to one another 4 years ago and have been inseparable since.
Swing by the parrot playground to see exotic birds that love interacting with people.
These birds are used to human presence and will pose for you and at times, and even talk back to you!
Need to take a break from the colossal animals? Take a look at the petting zoo where you'll be able to have a nice change of pace by feeding animals such as goats and miniature indian cows.
Gatorland Express Train
The Gatorland Express Railroad ride takes passengers around the Breeding Marsh/Bird Rookery areas and the Jungle Crocs area.
The train also makes a stop at the South end of the park near the Alligator Wrestling Stadium and Pearl's Smokehouse.
Also known as the Gator Gully Splash Pad, families will be able to cool off from the Florida sun and swampy environment while having the time of their lives.
This water play area was designed for pure fun as you'll have water pouring out from the floor, above your head, and everywhere in between.
Gator Jumparoo Show
A rare sight that only seeing in person will do it justice.The colossal gators will jump out of the water to snatch some meals out of the air.
Despite being large and lethargic at times, when there's a meal nearby, these gators will use their massive tail to propel them at fast speeds to get to their desired destination.
Gator Wrestlin' Show
Visitors travel from all over the world to watch the gator wranglers pull off dangerous and exciting stunts.
During these stunts they also pause to educate the audience on survival techniques as well as gator behavior.
This is a very interactive event as the wranglers go out of their way to ask the audience questions and keep them engaged.
We've written a guide that covers all of the shows in depth.
Best Place to see Alligators in Orlando
The best place to see alligators in Orlando is hands down at Gatorland. They offer a walk through the breeding marsh, various shows, rides and up close encounters. The best time to spot them is anytime that you walk in the park! There will be hundreds of alligators roaming throughout the day.
