First opened in 1949 as the Florida Wildlife Institute, Gatorland is a fixture of the Kissimmee area. Known for its sprawling alligator habitats and wildlife exhibits, no visit to Central Florida is complete without a stop at the Alligator Capital of the World®.

But don’t just take our word for it. More than 4,500 TripAdvisor reviewers agree and have placed Gatorland in a top-5 spot among Central Florida outdoor activities. Earning a 4.5 rating overall, guests rave about customer service, kid-friendly activities, entertaining shows, the variety of animals, and of course the fan favorite: fried gator nuggets.

Aside from observing the hundreds of alligators from the safety of the boardwalk, you can experience the unique thrill of ziplining over a real breeding marsh, hiking through an ancient cypress forest, and many other activities. And the fun doesn’t stop at sunset – you can even check out Gator Night Shine, a 60-minute guided flashlight tour over the park’s alligator enclosures.
