My kids love Gatorland in Orlando, Florida. It’s a great way to spend half a day (or longer) and at $23.00 per adult and $15.00 per child, it’s a real deal.
This privately owned, 110 acre theme park has more than just alligators. Besides the Alligator Island, the breeding marsh and the nature swamp walk, there are also entertaining and educational shows, flamingos, a barnyard petting area, snake displays and, my kids favourite, an aviary of friendly Lorikeets. There’s even a splash park.
The boys enjoyed trying gator meat at one of the snack bars.
Gatorland has a fabulous web site with all kinds of information, history and fun facts. They even supply some great educational links but best of all is the live gator cam.
