This review is ONLY about the Photographer's Pass which allows you early access to the boardwalk from 7:30am - 10:00am (until the park opens to the general public). We did not stay to enjoy any of the other amenities of the park such as the zip-lining, etc. My son and I love to photograph wildlife and last year we visited... More

Lots to see and do, awesome & fun staff. Prices are reasonable. If you want to get up close pay the $10 & you can throw 3 pieces of steak at gators. Only drawback is check in for upclose encounters is unorganized. If there are 2 of you buy your encounter ticket separately we bought ours together & asked. to... More

Went here with 2 families specifically for the zip lining and ended up really enjoying the rest of the park! We wrestled gators, got up close and personal with some creepy crawly creatures and were in awe at the number of and size of the gators. Our zip lining guide told us there are over 2400 gators on property. The... More

I got annual passes. My kids are young so they weren't really into anything. They did love the little playground with water park. The annual passes are worth it. Super reasonable.

We visited during Spring Break with 2 kids aged 13 and 12. It was a nice way to spend a few hours seeing something so unique to Florida and a way to see so many gators up close. The line up to get into the park took much longer than advertised though, as we waited about 45 minutes just to... More

I talked my husband into going to Gatorland because I like nature more than all the parks. We were pleasantly surprised and enjoyed our afternoon here. We chose a day that had afternoon showers so the crowds were small. If I lived in the area, I would have a season pass.

This place is a must see and a great alternative to the "big parks", especially for those on a budget. Older folks will enjoy a trip back in time to a classic old-school Florida tourist spot. Younger kids will learn a lot and see some animals right up close. There is a petting zoo (more of a feeding zoo), and... More

We brought my 10 year old grandson for the night shine, he loved it....we all loved it. Our guide Peter was really great, humorous, informative and obviously loves his job. Want to go again during the day to try the zipline

Gator wrestling, face painting, gator feeding, train ride, baby birds when it's warmer there is a water play area. Great for school aged kids. They also have zip lining which we didn't do.

My husband and I, as well as two of our friends who were visiting from out-of-state went to Gatorland the first part of February. We visited on a Saturday and it wasn't too busy. The staff was nice, the information was excellent and I have honestly never seen so many gators in all of my life. There were gators in... More
