    I was really impressed with Gatorland. My husband and our two sons went to Gatorland in the last week and had an amazing time.

    Gatorland is a great half day attraction, and a well earned break from the hectic theme parks. All in all well worth the visit.

    Recently visited. Nothing much to do apart from watch Gators float about lifelessly. The train was out of order on our visit which was a shame as my son was looking forward to it. Watch the live show with a gator being manhandled with its mouth taped shut!

      @Hunter – That is what Gators do, what did you expect, a circus parade? Gatorland is all about getting close to nature in a safe environment which they do excellently
