Spotting a real, live alligator is must among the things to do on a visit to Kissimmee! Gatorland is just the place to find a whole bunch of these native critters. After more than 50 years, Gatorland remains one of Central Florida's most popular theme parks, offering an action-packed day filled with alligators, colorful birds, and slithery reptiles. A 2,000-foot boardwalk winds through a natural cypress swamp allowing an up close look at a wildlife preserve, breeding marshes, alligator nurseries and rearing ponds. A three-story observation tower provides a "bird's eye view" of Gatorland's 110-acre marshland.
Catch the shows with humans interacting with these living dinosaurs, including the classic Gator Jumparoo, where huge American alligators leap from the water to chomp chickens dangling from lines. Alligator wrestling and creepy critter shows educate their audiences with reptile trivia while performing amazing stunts. Take a relaxing train ride through the swamp, make some cuddly friends at the petting zoo or cool off from the Florida sun in the Gator Gully Splash Park, where you're sure to get soaked.
For a heart-pounding thrill, embark on the Screamin' Gator zipline, a journey along 1200 feet of high-flying adventure, at heights of 56 feet and nearly 30 miles per hour! You'll soar above Cuban and Nile crocodiles and across the breeding marsh before racing to the finish!
All this and more is waiting for your family vacation at this uniquely Florida attraction, near Disney, Orlando and all the Kissimmee accommodations and other fun activities!
