Hey Thrill Seekers,

Its interview Tuesday (still not a thing) and today’s interview happens to coincide with our fabulous February offering! Sandy represents Gatorland who for the whole of this month is part of our added value program.

Lets get to know Sandy a little better…

Name: Sandy Sweatt
Company: Gatorland
Position: Senior Sales Manager

If you could have an endless supply of any food, what would you get? Pasta, Pasta, Pasta!
If you were an animal, what would you be and why? A Gator of course … so I can just watch people all day long and not have to say a word! If they make me mad, I would snap at them!
If someone made a movie of your life would it be a drama, a comedy, a romantic-comedy, action film, or science fiction? A comedy, I am a native Floridian, but hate to be hot, my degree is in Fashion Merchandising and I promote a 110-acre park with lots of Alligators!
If you had your own talk show, who would your first three guests be? My Grandfather – to share past family history with me! Jackie Kennedy Onassis – would really like to meet her! Julia Roberts —- Love her!

What was the highlight of 2016 for your company?: Gatorland has so much to brag about. We have the most incredible team that is so dedicated to making Gatorland the best it can be for our guests! Our entertainment and animal care departments love what they do and the animals they care for and work with daily. They ensure our guests visit to Gatorland is filled with Fun, Smiles and Special Memories!
What can we expect from your company in 2017?: Gatorland will be 68 years old and we will continue to entertain guest for all over the world with our amazing animal show and exhibits! Look for a “New” Attraction at Gatorland in Fall 2016!
Make a 2017 prediction…: I really cannot predict what will happen in 2017. But, I do believe Orlando will continue to be the top tourist destination and Gatorland will continue to be that special place to visit, to see and touch those amazing gators that they cannot see everywhere! Orlando has a lot of amazing attractions small and large!
Best Theme Park ride/attraction of 2016?: Diagon Alley at Universal Studios
Best Theme Park/attraction food of 2016?: Butterbeer
Best Theme Park/attraction tip?: If it is raining in Orlando, still go to the parks. It may be raining where you are, but not necessarily a mile away! And the rain normally last a short time.
Best kept secret in Florida?: Boggy Creek Airboat Rides! An amazing adventure and so beautiful to see a bit of the real Florida!

Ooo a new attraction opening in the Fall… wonder what that will be! Thanks very much to Sandy for taking her time to answer our questions. Gatorland is an amazing attraction to visit and one that you wont regret. Gatorland is included for free in February with some of our most popular tickets.
