Orlando's Gatorland - Important Things to Know

Gatorland: Animals and Zipline Thrill

Come experience Gatorland!

14501 S. Orange Blossom Trail, Orlando 32837


Whether you live in Orlando or are visiting with a few days to kill, Gatorland should be on your to-do list. Why? Because you won’t see more gators anywhere else in Florida (except, maybe on alligator alley down south).

They’ve got gators and crocodiles of all sizes, from babies (“grunts”) to 14-foot adults, and a large collection of rare white leucistic alligators.

There are other animals at Gatorland, too: birds, wild cats, snakes, critters, and tortoises.

The free-flight aviary contains hundreds of brightly-colored budgerigars, Amazon parrots, blue and gold macaws, and cockatoos. Flamingo Island hosts—you guess it—flamingos. The Breeding Marsh is home to cattle egrets, tricolored herons, little blue herons, anhingas, cormorants, great egrets, snowy egrets, and spoonbills.

Neiko and Lucy are Florida panthers were born at a rescue and rehab facility and now live at Gatorland. Osceola and Abiaka are male Florida bobcats, rescued from captivity and now enjoying life in Bobcat Bayou.

Lucy is a 300-pound Galapagos tortoise who came to Gatorland in October 2016. She’s 27. She joins Dean (100 years old), a 500-pound Aldabra Giant Tortoise, and Kendrick (55 years old), a 200-pound Sulcata African Spurred Tortoise.

Enjoy all of the wonderful animal exhibits and shows, but don’t forget the Screamin’ Gator Zipline adventure!

This zipline was voted best zip line in the US by AOL Travel. The zipline launches riders from heights of 65 feet, across five lines between 230 feet and 500 feet long, and over a swinging bridge. Zip line towers between lines stand seven stories high, and from these towers riders have views for miles around.

Zipline price for adults and children is $69.99. (Riders must be at least 37” tall and must not weigh more than 275 lbs.)

Around animal viewing and ziplining, be sure to take in shows at Gatorland that you won’t see anywhere else.

The Gator Jumparoo Show displays gators who jump over four feet out of the water to be fed. The Gator Wrestlin’ Show offers a Florida cracker-style alligator wrestling show in a shaded 800-seat stadium. Gator wranglers catch and sit on top of 6- to 8-foot alligators, perform stunts, roll the gator over, put it to sleep and wake it back up with a tickle.

Up Close Encounters is a show where snakes and critters are brought out by Gatorland trained staff so that visitors can see and handle them.

When you work up a thirst or appetite, Gatorland has plenty of food options, from a snackbar and coffee shop to Fudge Kitchen and Pearl’s Good Eats.
