from Gatorland Night Shine Tour
Florida Nightlife is about to get WILD!

Your Gator Night Shine adventure takes you deep into the domain of Florida's most famous reptile, the alligator! Armed with only a flashlight and a few hot dogs, you bravely make your way along the winding wooden walkways of Gatorland's Alligator Breeding Marsh. The sounds of the night come alive around you as the rustle of feathers overhead and the splashing of water nearby signal that you are not alone. Turning your flashlight towards the water, you suddenly become aware of hundreds of hungry, glowing, red eyes slowly making their way closer… it's now your turn to experience the "Real Florida." A fun and educational tour for kids of all ages, Gatorland's Gator Night Shine Tour is one swamp stompin' adventure you don't want to miss!

"Hidden gem of a florida"

If you are visiting Florida you must visit Gay or land. Whether you like animals or just want to discover the real Florida this is the place for you. Though they cost extra, I would recommend you do the gator feeding, gator jumparoo training and the gator zip line. All of these offer a one of a kind of experience, though they may need a bit of courage to master. Never fear, there are not only gators but Panthers, birds, snakes, fish, goats and even possums and raccoons. Never fear the price of the excursions are fairly cheap and you can pay for a photo package at the entrance, that allows you get all of these images on a memory stick for a mere $35 (if you do everything, you would end up with around 100 images). All in all I think visiting gator land is a priority for any traveler. Please subscribe and like my post.

"Fun place"

Overall it's a very neat place. My son loved it. It's a money pit though. Typical for a tourist attraction. If you want to see everything, I recommend getting there early. We arrived around noon and were there till it closed at 5pm. We didn't get to see the shows except for the very last one. Only problem I had was with the staff in the shop next to the zip line room. The woman asked if I had a question. I asked her where the show was that you can get a picture sitting on the gator for my son. She rolled her eyes at me! A customer had to tell me instead. If it wasn't for her attitude, I would give it 5 stars. Overall, it was a lot of fun.

"Great animal experience for an affordable price"

This is probably the most affordable attraction in the Orlando area that you can spend a day with young kids at. It's an extra $2 for unlimited train rides and an extra $10 per person if you want to do the swamp buggy one time. The shows are informative and entertaining but do have a little bit of a redneck spin to them. My personal favorite was the gator wrestling. There are plenty of alligators and some crocodiles but there are also snakes, birds, giant tortoises, a petting zoo and other animals to see as well. My 2.5 year old son got to ride the train many times, got to feed tortoises, and loved the swamp buggy ride. He had as much fun here as he did at sea world and the magic kingdom for 1/3 of the price.
