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, 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, making it Orlando's best half day attraction.
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!
Get up-close and personal with gators, crocs, birds, turtles, zebu, deer and much more! Enjoy one-of-a kind shows like the Gator Wrestlin’ Show where you can sit on the back of a real alligator! Cheer on the stars of the famous Gator Jumparoo as they jump 4 to 5 feet out of the water. Then, head on over to the Up-Close Encounters Show where you can expect to find the unexpected!
Feed the lovable animals at the petting zoo and the aviary. You can then head out to the Swamp Walk or Alligator Breeding Marsh and Bird Rookery where nature is in charge and every visit is unique!
Don’t forget to visit Pearl’s Smokehouse for some good ole’ fashion comfort food before you head on over to the award winning Gift Shop where you can find everything from t-shirts and plush animals to specialty items and limited edition pieces.
