Get ready for a day trip to Gatorland Orlando - The Alligator Capital of the World!

Known for its world-famous gator mouth entrance, Gatorland opened as one of Central Florida's first major road-side attractions in 1949.

Gatorland is a 110-acre theme park and wildlife preserve that combines old Florida charm with exciting experiences, exhibits and entertainment.

From babies, also known as grunts, to the 14-foot monsters, there isn't a better place to see alligators and crocodiles of all sizes.

Gatorland is much more than just a gator park! Soar above gator-infested waters on the Screamin’ Gator Zip Line or ride through Florida swamps on the Stompin’ Gator Off-Road Adventure. You can also enjoy a free-flight aviary, petting zoo, one-of-a-kind animal shows and so much more.

The best part? Gatorland won't take a bite out of your budget. Tickets start at $19.99 for kids 3-12 and $29.99 for adults. Children 3 and under are free.

Gatorland is located at 14501 South Orange Blossom Trail, Orlando. Click here for more information.
