Gatorland, a 110-acre (45-ha), family-owned wildlife preserve, with hands-on exhibits and up-close encounters, is a unique and natural alternative to larger theme parks. Explore the free-flight aviary and petting zoo, take in an animal show, and observe a natural alligator-breeding marsh.
Gatorland showcases thousands of alligators, crocodiles, and birds, including 4 extremely rare leucistic (albino) alligators. Take in an exciting, 1-of-a-kind reptile show. Then cool off at Gator Gully Splash Water Park, perfect for kids of all ages.
Watch a daredevil gator wrestler drag a 6–8 foot (1.8–2.4 m) alligator onto the sand with his bare hands, climb onto the snapping animal's back, and point out survival features to you. After performing a variety of stunts, the wrestler rolls the alligator over and lulls it to sleep, and then awakens it with just a tickle. Afterward, you may even get a chance to get your picture taken on the gator's back.
