Gatorland Theme Park in Orlando, Florida

Welcome to Gatorland, Orlando's Best Half Day Attraction located in sunny Central Florida! Known internationally as the Alligator Capital of the World, Gatorland is a 110-acre alligator theme park and wildlife preserve, located just minutes away from Sea World, Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, and the Orlando International Airport on US 441 near the Orlando - Kissimmee border. Providing affordable family entertainment since 1949, Gatorland has been a vacation destination for millions of visitors from all over the world with its incredible display of huge alligators and crocodiles, train ride, aviary, breeding marsh and bird sanctuary, petting zoo, nature walk, gift shop, and one-of-a-kind shows such as the world famous Gator Jumparoo. So c'mon inside... your adventure awaits!

It's well over 50 years since Owen Godwin opened his first roadside gator attraction for tourists coming down to Central Florida from the North. The good news is they're still coming, and more than ever before. The self proclaimed 'Alligator Capital of The World', Gatorland is home to hundreds of Florida's original residents (the long scaly kind!). Although some of the tourist kitch remains, the family owned park has gotten very serious about conservation of these remarkable animals and their crocodile cousins. Breeding programs are used with great success to ensure the reproduction of not only Florida's alligators, but also endangered species like the ferocious Cuban Crocodile. The focal point of the park is the Breeding Marsh, a natural Cypress swamp, where the main population of swamp dragons reside. A scenic wooden boardwalk gets you within snapping distance of these scaly sunbathers. Be sure to climb the observation tower for an excellent view of the park and surrounding area.

Make sure you see Jungle Crocs of The World, a snappy exhibit featuring lots of toothy grins (that's just the handlers). The Gator Wrestlin' makes you realize just what some people will do for money. Guests can have their photo taken with one of the participants. Guess which one!

Set beside a real Cypress swamp, the park also has a miniature railway, a swamp walk and offers some unusual photo opportunities involving baby gators and a boa constrictor!

By far the most unique show is the Jumparoo. Hungry gators leap for chicken appetizers encouraged by the cheers of a fascinated audience. Note that the feeder is chained to his podium to avoid becoming dessert! Having worked up an appetite, it's then time for the whole family to head over to Pearl's Smokehouse for some gator nuggets!
