Everything you need to know about Gatorland

Hey Thrill Seekers,

Adventure Calls. Answer the Call.

So as we have an amazing offer on at the moment for FREE Gatorland General Admission per person when you spend over £500 this January, I thought I would give you the run down on why this is such a great park to visit.

Even if you don’t know a lot about Gatorland, i’m sure you’ll be familiar with the famous Gator mouth entrance!

Gatorland is the renowned ‘Alligator capital of the world’ it was founded by
Owen Godwin in 1949, and still privately owned by his family today! It is the best place to see alligators and crocodiles of all sizes, from babies, to the 14-foot monsters that call our Breeding Marsh home. They even have the largest collection of extremely rare white leucistic alligators.  But, Gatorland is more than just a gator park!  They have a free-flight aviary, petting zoo, one-of-a-kind animal shows, thrilling Screamin’ Gator Zip Line and new Stompin’ Gator Off-Road Adventure to ensure your day will be full of fun, smiles and special memories!

The animals you will encounter when visiting Gatorland.

Did you know – A baby alligator is called a Grunt. (cute huh 😉 )

There is also a lot of extra activities and experiences to do at Gatorland – i’ve popped my favourite ones below.

Screamin’ Gator Zip Line

This experience is an extra cost but totally worth it! Here’s what it includes:

  • Launch from heights of up to 65 feet
  • Soar across five intense zip lines ranging in length from 230 feet to more than 500 feet, and carefully cross a swinging bridge over the park’s main walkway
  • Fly over alligators and crocodiles at speeds near 30 miles per hour. Equipment (helmet and harness) provided
  • Just minutes from area hotels, theme parks, and the Orlando International Airport

Gator Gauntlet

Soar 350 feet through the air and defy gravity while gliding over the Alligator Breeding Marsh, complete with one hundred and thirty giant alligators watching from below! “That’s one wild ride!”


This is one of my personal favourite things to do at Gatorland. It is truly hilarious!
Gatorland guests can board one of three, 12-foot-high custom-made, off-road monster vehicles for a 15-minute rugged and hilarious adventure like no other theme park ride anywhere. This exciting ride is chocked full of wacky new Gatorland characters, singing tour guides, swampy adventure, and, of course, lots of alligators. Each vehicle is specially branded and named after iconic real alligators and crocodiles at Gatorland, including Bonecrusher ℠, Cannibal Jake, and Swamp Ghost ℠

Gator Night Shine

Armed with only a flashlight and gator food, you bravely make your way along the winding wooden walkways of Gatorland’s Alligator Breeding Marsh. The sounds of the night come alive around you as the rustle of feathers overhead and the splashing of water nearby signal that you are not alone.
Turning your flashlight towards the water, you suddenly become aware of hundreds of hungry, glowing, red eyes slowly making their way closer… it’s now your turn to experience the ‘real Florida.

Gatorland is open from 10am – 5pm 365 days of the years come rain or shine. It is located around 20 – 30 minutes away from International Drive. Gatorland, 14501 S Orange Blossom Trail, Orlando, FL 32837, United States

Smiles Included (even if there is loads of Gators behind me)
