Theme Parks - Gatorland

For over 50 years now, Gatorland Zoo has entertained, thrilled and delighted audiences for years. Billed as Central Florida's Best 'Half Day Attraction.' It's sure to delight the younger and older members of your party - Especially boys, although girls seem to enjoy just as much. And guess what? It won't hurt your pocketbook either as general admissions are relatively low in comparison to the major Theme Parks of the area.

Without doubt, the 'Main Attraction' here is the 'Gatorland Jumperoo' a show that is put on about 3 times a day (Arrive 15 minutes early to stake out your spot. You don't want to miss it!). There's also a 'Gator Wrestling' show that occurs several times throughout the day...

Although there are a variety of 'live' animal exhibits to be viewed throughout the Park. There always seems to remain two 'special features' that always seem to stick with us - The 'Swamp Walk,' and the miniature 'Train Ride' that takes you around the Park. Naturally, most things here are themed around 'Alligators.' In fact there's some 10,000 of them!

Factoid: Did you know that Gatorland was also a backdrop for one of the sequels to the 'Indiana Jones' movies? And let's not forget about the great 'Gift Shop' they have there with almost 'Museum-Like' qualities. A great place to pick-up some souvenirs...

Time Needed to visit: Allow 4-5 Hours

Directions:

From International Drive: Take the 'Central Florida Parkway' to 'John Young Rd,' then cross 'John Young Parkway' to 'South Orange Blossom Trail' (OBT). Turn right onto 'South Orange Blossom Trail and then continue on for several miles. It will be on your left-hand side. You can't miss it!

From Lake Buena Vista: Best bet here is to take Hwy 535 toward Kissimmee until you reach the 'Osceola Parkway.' As you go under the Bridge, immediately turn left at the traffic light. There will be a $1.00 'Toll' each way for this section of Osceola Parkway, but it's well worth it. Once on Osceola Parkway, continue on and across John Young Parkway, turn left onto South Orange Blossom Trail (OBT). Gatorland will be on your right-hand side.

From Kissimmee: If staying anywhere 'West' of the junctions of Hwy 535 and US Hwy 192 (and most of you probably are), follow the same Directions as those of offered to our Lake Buena Vista viewers. If staying 'East' of this junction, best just follow US Hwy 192 to the junction of 'South Orange Blossom Trail' (OBT). Then turn left onto 'South Orange Blossom Trail' and travel for a few more miles. Gatorland will be on your right.


What to look for:

Look for 'gaping jaws' of the 'Great Green Alligator' which marks the entrance. You'll want to take a picture too, as this attraction truly represents the nostalgia of 'Roadside America,' an era long since past...

Tickets:

Although you can generally find $3.00 off per person coupons almost anywhere you go, we do offer this ticket at a much greater savings over Gate Price. Just another way to save you some money.
