Gatorland Orlando is so much more than just looking at alligators in the water, and at an economical price that will not take a “chomp” out of your vacation budget, we highly recommend you add it to your Florida itinerary. Located only 11 miles from Walt Disney World Orlando and 16 miles from Universal Studios, Gatorland remains to be one of Orlando/ Kissimmee’s original attraction and provides a unique experience alternative to the larger theme parks today. With so much offered here, we compiled a list of the cool things to do at Orlando’s best half-day attraction!
Screamin’ Gator Zipline
Zip lining is pretty cool within itself. However, zip lining with over 100 giant gators below is awesome! Voted “Best Zipline in the USA” by AOL Travel, experience a journey that will take you along 1,200 feet of high flying at a speed near 30mph. This heart-pounding adventure is offered at a lower cost, which also includes all-day admission to Gatorland. Click here for more details!
The Trainer-for-a-Day program
Have you ever dreamed of working around gators, crocodiles, and other dangerous reptiles? What about holding a baby alligator? Or even worked with a gator wrestler? Well, look no further. Here is your chance! Being a trainer for a day allows you to get up close and personal with some of Gatorland’s wildest!
Gator Night Shine
Although I mentioned earlier that this is the best half day attraction, it gets wild at night too! Equipped with only a flashlight and a few hot dogs, make your way along the wooden walkways of Gatorland's Alligator Breeding Marsh. The sounds at night and the red-eyed army of gators will be sure to rustle your feathers.
Whether it’s the gators jumping four feet or more out of the water at the Jumparoo Show; a gator wrangler wrestles a 6 to 8 foot alligator by hand at a Gator Wrestlin’ Show; or get close and personal with some of the most dangerous snakes alive at the Up Close Encounter show, you’ll be sure to encounter one of a kind shows.
With only 14 known to be in the world, four lysistic alligator lives at Gatorland!
Chester is one of the largest alligator in the world (some calls him a dinosaur) at 13 ½ foot, 1,000 lbs., and 3,000 lbs. per square inch of jaw pressure. Wow!
