I might be one of the only people who didn't get to see gators move much due to the cold. My girlfriend and I spent a day here waiting for our plane after a cruise and it was 30 degrees overnight. This made for sleepy gators. Was still a good time and the park is a must see for people in the area.
Perhaps no theme park in Orlando leaves you with a more indelible memory of Florida. – Overview
Founded in 1949, the park puts visitors up close and personal with Florida's best-known and most fearsome reptile, the alligator. Lots of alligators, to be honest. Expect to see them from behind well-screened fences, which ensure safety but still puts people close enough to cause discomfort, particularly when the menacing reptiles thrash and jump for show.
Shows include the Gator Jumparoo, where gators jump for their meals, and the Gator Wrestling Stadium, where a crazy Cracker wrassles for the sport of it. Gatorland also features other wildlife, including an impressive collection of snakes, such as Monty--a 16-foot python. Also of note is the Alligator Breeding Marsh and the bird sanctuary, which contains thousands of birds and may be seen from the observatory walkway above the trees.
Overpriced – Way overpriced for what you get. Better to go to Disney or ANY other place than this. Is an expensive borefest.
