Take a trip to this 70-acre park and see thousands of alligators and crocodiles up close. Visit breeding pens, nurseries and rearing ponds. Children love the site's mini water park, and the petting zoo boasts goats, lambs and other barnyard animals. Make sure to walk the 2000-foot boardwalk winding its way through a cypress swamp. If you get hungry, grab a bite at the on-site Pearl's Smokehouse. The menu features Smoked Alligator Ribs and Deep-Fried Gator Nuggets.
Gatorland is known as the alligator capital of the world. Whilst it says what it is on the tin, there is so much else to do and see at this laid back attraction away from the madness of the major theme parks. Gatorland boasts of course hundreds of alligators, as well as a breeding marsh, petting zoo, aviary, nature trail, reptilian shows and other animal exhibits. Last year they opened Gator Gully, a cute splash park where the kids could cool off and have some fun in the water amid the day out at Gatorland. Gator Gully is located within the existing Gatorland park, and is free with your regular Gatorland ticket.
The shows are great and fun. The kids really love it! The train ride is not worth the money. It takes you around the back of the park and you don't see anything, but staged dummies and a fake skeleton of an alligator.
