Gatorama is a Florida 'must do'. A long standing family attraction complete with Alligators, Crocodiles, Monkeys, Bobcats, Raccoons, Peacocks, Ducks, Geese, Pythons and more! Try your hand at our 18+ Guest Feeding Experience "Fast Hands or No Hands" where you become the star of the show! Not ready to brave the big crocs? Sit back and enjoy one of two Big Gator Feeding Shows by our trained zookeepers. (FREE WITH ADMISSION) Feeling brave? For a small fee, you can jump on into Uncle Waders Catch A Gator Pond, or try your hand at Gator Wranglin'. Paleontologists in the group will want to try out our Big Gator Fossil Dig where they dig up real bones and are challenged to identify them. These make for FANTASTIC photo opportunities, so don't forget those cameras. Prefer a lazy afternoon? We have an extensive boardwalk, games and plenty of space in our Swoopy Palm Trail to relax and take in the sounds of nature. A taste of Real Florida is waiting for you at Gatorama!

We moved out of state and our youngest has never been to Gatorama. He didn't know what an experience it would be. We paid a little extra to wade with the gators and to pose with a big gator. Worth it!!! Do not regret missing...More

My family and I (myself, my husband, and three children ages 5-10) went feeling a bit skeptical about this place-- hoping for the best but not knowing exactly what to expect. This experience exceeded our hopes. Absolutely fascinating, wonderful guide, cool little petting zoo, and...More

We paid the entrance fee only which allows access to all the facility. Did not pay to sit on a gator, wad and catch baby gators or hand feed chicken parts to gators from a bridge above them. We watched others do the activities and...More

With a large population of alligators and crocodiles, allegedly one of the largest in the world, it's difficult not to be astounded by the amazing creatures that call Gatorama home. You will definitely want to visit during one of the feedings, a feat that you...More

When we were there, it actually had to do with height, not age. If you're over 48", you're charged as an adult. If you're under 48", you're charged as a child. That is unless you're an adult under 48", then you still get... More
