Once you have experienced Gatorland, it will be hard to believe that it began in 1949 as a roadside attraction. Founded by the late Owen Godwin, and 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®!
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.
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 to 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!
