For real fun and excitement on your trip to Orlando, we recommend a visit to Gatorland, home to Florida’s famous alligators, the Screamin’ Gator Zip Line, and a lot more.
Gatorland is the kind of old-school entertainment that made Florida famous as a vacation destination – a bit kitschy, a bit educational, and plenty of fun. It’s a perfect outing for families with children, couples, photographers and nature buffs.
Several daily events bring you into close contact with the famous Florida ’gators, including Adventure Hour, Rookie Wrestling and Gator Night Shine. Some of these are not for the faint-hearted! But what could make for a better story than feeding hot dogs to hungry alligators?
High-Flying Zip Line
Voted the Best Zip Line in the country by AOL Travel, the Screamin’ Gator Zip Line takes you along 1,200 feet of high flying, heart pounding adventure from 7-story tall towers. You will be traveling over Gatorland’s star attractions – Cuban and Nile crocodiles! Then you will fly above the Alligator Breeding Marsh, home to 130 huge alligators watching you with interest from below!
In addition to thousands of alligators and crocodiles – featuring four rare leucistic, or white, alligators – Gatorland has a petting zoo, a free-flight aviary, and several one-of-a-kind animal shows. The Trainer For a Day program will educate you on just what it takes to work with these powerful creatures, and you will get to hold a baby alligator!
Photographers will enjoy shooting exotic birds in their natural element in the Gatorland Bird Rookery.
Really, a Florida vacation just needs a few alligators and a little kitsch! Gatorland is just a short distance from our luxurious town home accommodations at the CLC Encantada and Regal Oaks Resorts in Kissimmee.
