Located just a short drive from any of our Global Resort Homes properties, is Gatorland, a classic attraction that has been around for more than 60 years! Gatorland is home to thousands of alligators and crocodiles in a beautiful 110-acre theme park and wild life preserve that feels like “old Florida.” Your day will be full and fun with so much to see and do.
There is a free-flight aviary, animal shows, natural alligator breeding marsh, a petting zoo and the “thrilling” Screamin’ Gator Zip Line. This exhilarating zip line was voted “Best Zip Line in the USA, by AOL Travel!” If you like a heart pounding adventure, that takes you along 1,200 feet, soaring over treetops with incredible views, then you wont want to miss this.
Another unforgettable experience at Gatorland, is the Trainer for a Day program. It gives you a peek into what it would be like to work with these dangerous animals.
Your day begins with some of the smallest members of the Gatorland family. Would you like to hold a baby alligator? You can! How about an up close tour that gets you close and personal with some of the largest alligators and crocodiles you’ll ever see?
Following that, you’ll meet with reptiles and creepy crawlers from the Upclose Encounters Show. And finally, you get to work with a Gatorland trainer in the Gator Wrestling Arena! No worries though, your trainer will keep you safe, but you’ll learn so much more through this experience!
