It’s no secret that Florida is home to a large population of alligators. Only Gatorland® lets you get face to face with one of the most fearsome and interesting reptiles in the world. The best part? This experience is only available in Orlando, which ensures this will be an experience to remember.
Gatorland has been a part of the Florida landscape since 1949 starting first as a roadside attraction. It has evolved into an adventure park for the whole family and has even been coined as the “Alligator Capital of the World.” Thousands of alligators, crocodiles, turtles, and other exotic animals populate the 110-acre park, which even features a zip line down which you can fly right over the animals.
Take the opportunity to get close to some of Florida’s oldest and most valued creatures including an Aldabra giant tortoise that is more than a century old.
There are a number of incredibly entertaining shows to see as well. By far the most famous is the “Gator Jumparoo” where you can witness the raw strength of these creatures as they leap straight out of the water to snatch food from the hand of a highly-trained professional.
Gatorland is a perfect way to experience the nature of Florida in a fun and exciting way for the entire family. The Rosen Inn is your luxurious, convenient, and affordable lodging option right in the heart of Orlando and just a short drive from the thrill and excitement of Gatorland.
