you're coming to Florida to see them gators, then
Gatorland is the place to see those monstrous animals.
With hundreds of these animals on the premises,
it would be pretty hard NOT to see one. Actually,
the entrance to the park is shaped in the likeness
of a gigantic gator mouth. Millions have passed
under this archway to get a glimpse of a Florida
that once used to be long before Walt ever even
knew what a mouse was. And like the millions before,
you to can see this version of Florida as it once
was. But, unlike all those before you, you can catch
that glimpse without having to pay the full price
because you know about Great Orlando Discounts.

The rich history of Gatorland dates
back to 1930. Since then, this creative and one
of a kind attraction has been family owned and operated.
The owners have always loved nature and that's why
Gatorland is such a huge conservatory. Besides the
gators, there are many other species of exotic and
rare wildlife. You'll see snapping turtles, snakes,
a plethora of birds, deer, and other animals not
native to Florida.

Screamin’ Gator Zip Line - NEW!
The newest addition to
the popular Gatorland theme park is the
awesome Screamin’ Gator Zipline! This fun
adventure takes you high above the theme
park where you can “zip” from tower to tower
on sturdy steel cables. But what makes this
adventure so unique is that you pass over
these alligator infested waters! When you
start this fun adventure you will be greeted
by some of Gatorland’s professional jump
guides. They will seat you in a square room
where you will be instructed by a comical
movie that explains the ten steps to keeping
you safe while on the tower. After that
these experts strap you into your zipline
gear and harness, topped off with a red
helmet. Then you are led across the theme
park to the first tower for the “Gator Grunt
Run,” the first of five separate jumps that
you will enjoy on this course.
Gator Grunt Run is a slow moving, short
jump that is just perfect for beginners.
From there the jumps increase in height,
speed, and distance, all leading up the
second to last jump, a seven story plummet
over five hundred feet of the alligator
breeding marsh! Down below are thirty to
fifty of some of Gatorland's largest alligators,
but don’t worry, you will be going fast
enough at speeds of almost 30 miles an hour
that you probably wont even be looking down!
As soon as you make it down to the other
side you are led across a rope bridge to
the final run, a race course where two jumpers
get to see just who is the fastest! All
the courses leading up to this one were
just for practice, do you have what it takes
to speed on by your opponent?
Screamin’ Gator Zipline course at Gatorland
is a great way to make your adventure to
the theme park a lasting memory! Few people
get to say “I dangled at high speeds over
a pool full of alligators from a steel cable.”
Best of all you can buy pictures of your
awesome experience at the end, that way
everyone will believe your crazy story!
I went to Gatorland I saw the biggest
gators I've ever seen in my whole life.
They were just tremendous beasts and
that could move surprisingly (and dangerously)
quick, when they are on the hunt for
prey. Visiting Gatorland gave me a whole
new respect for those creatures, along
with the multitude of other animals
that are on display there. I certainly
gained a lot of new knowledge of the
local Floridian wildlife. The zoologists
and marine biologists on hand are very
knowledgeable about the area and you
get to hear from them through the small
tours given and questions you ask them
too. My favorite show would have to
be the Gator Jumparoo. This is the show
where a piece meat is dangled from a
rope to a bunch of hungry gators. I'll
tell you what, I was not expecting those
gators to be able to jump as high as
I saw them jump. It was very entertaining
to say the least.
Watch some of the world's largest alligators
jump 4 to 5 feet out of the water to snatch
food. Learn about alligators and crocodiles
and their awesome strength. Place this show
on your family's to-do list in Orlando.
This unique feat of bravery is a can't miss
when visiting Gatorland. Courageous (or
crazy, depending on your own view) Gator
wranglers will catch a gator and perform
stunts for the audience in the classic "Florida
Cracker" style. The wrangler will catch
a gator with his bare hands, get on the
dangerous animal's back, and then proceed
to show the audience the gator's survival
features. Oh, and the gator wrangler doesn't
do all this with a baby gator, these are
6 to 8 foot alligators we're talking about
here. Needless to say, you gotta see it
to believe it.
Inside a caged in pond, concealed underneath
the dark waters, await four rare and exotic
crocodiles. These dangerous and fierce creatures
can be silently motionless one moment, and
then explode with incredible speed and strength
in the next half-second. The question that
remains is this: are you brave enough to
enter the land of Jungle Crocs?
You'll get to see strange and intriguing
creatures from all over the face of the
earth, along with animals native to Florida,
at the Upclose Animal Encounters show. You'll
also see some of the most poisonous and
dangerous snakes in existence.
