“Lots of Gators.”
Reviewed 23 February 2011

Wow, lots of gators and critters, all look well cared for. The breeding marsh is full of birds doing just what it says, "breeding". Birds were building nest, some had eggs in them, some were sitting on eggs. And the number of gators was astounding! If you want to see gators then go.

“Interesting, but overpriced”
Reviewed 19 February 2011

My husband and I took our niece and nephew to Gatorland during their recent vacation to Orlando. Overall, the place is interesting. We especially enjoyed the white alligators and the shows were kind of fun. I do think, however, that it is overpriced for what you get. Once inside the park they nickel and dime you for just about everything. It was neat, but if you want to see alligators, I'd recommend you do an air boat tour or something instead.

“By far the best bang for your buck!!”
Reviewed 15 February 2011

Disney and Sea World were an amazing part of our trip, but Gatorland was voted the highlight by all of us. The park was beyond clean, the reptiles and animals healthy, and the staff were fabulous. I have no idea how many gators we saw, but I will never forget the sight! If you're planning a trip to the Orlando area, do not miss Gatorland!

“Entertaining,Informative, Eye-Catching”
Reviewed 15 February 2011

Wonderful. Don't miss the shows. Mark, one of the trainers is a stand-up comedian. He jokes and his ex-temporaneous rapport with the audience is remarkable considering the whole time he must be conscious of the gators surrounding him in the moat or the beasts in the boxes. I enjoyed the white alligators, the birds, the snake exhibit and the swampwalk. the only thing I could have done without was the train ride but that is something that appeals to young families and my husband and I have been there, done that, and now are approaching our 6th decade.

“Good attraction for kids and little bit of learning for the adults $18”
Reviewed 10 February 2011

Mainly crocs and gators but you will also see different species of birds in the aviary section (this is where you can go and have birds sit on you - $1). There are few species of other reptiles too like the snake. Gators and turtles live in complete harmony!!! For $10 you could have a picture with a baby gator in your hand or a serpent around your neck.
Make sure you see the show where a man wrestles with a gator.
