Overview

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!

Very old roadside attraction. A lot more gators now that it's legal to farm them for meat and hides. I counted 40 of them in one pen. Not as slick as Gatorland or St. Augustine Alligator farm, but well worth a stop.

What a great place to see the wild life. From the gators, turtles, and snakes, to Florida panthers and bobcats they have a wide assortment of wildlife to view, feed, and enjoy. Feel brave, hold a big snake and try not to get goose bumps,...More

I have no idea how much they pay Greg, the guy who feeds the gators BY HAND, but I am positive he doesn't make enough. What a show! The rest of the exhibits are very informative and interesting, but watching someone hold a chicken breast...More

We were lucky to find this place while visiting family 30 minutes away. Very laid back atmosphere and not overcrowded. Our grandson got to hold young alligators (for an extra 8.00) and was so proud of himself! We all enjoyed learning about crocs vs. gators....More

Always a good time and a much more “realistic” experience with the gators. Never over-crowded , peaceful.
