Overview

Gatorama is a Florida 'must do'. A long standing family attraction complete with Alligators, Crocodiles, Monkeys, Bobcats, Raccoons, Peacocks, Ducks, Geese, Pythons and more! Try your hand at our 18+ Guest Feeding Experience "Fast Hands or No Hands" where you become the star of the show! Not ready to brave the big crocs? Sit back and enjoy one of two Big Gator Feeding Shows by our trained zookeepers. (FREE WITH ADMISSION) Feeling brave? For a small fee, you can jump on into Uncle Waders Catch A Gator Pond, or try your hand at Gator Wranglin'. Paleontologists in the group will want to try out our Big Gator Fossil Dig where they dig up real bones and are challenged to identify them. These make for FANTASTIC photo opportunities, so don't forget those cameras. Prefer a lazy afternoon? We have an extensive boardwalk, games and plenty of space in our Swoopy Palm Trail to relax and take in the sounds of nature. A taste of Real Florida is waiting for you at Gatorama!

You just gotta spring for some Croc Crunch and feed them yourself. Great fun. They seem to know you have some and come right over, Gators and Crocs alike love this stuff. You can get close enough to see them really well. We had fun.

If you have a chance to go, you need to. Seeing all the different alligators and crocodiles (plus a few other animals) was a great experience. If you go, make sure you get the alligator biscuits. The gators love it and will come up real...More

Very old roadside attraction. A lot more gators now that it's legal to farm them for meat and hides. I counted 40 of them in one pen. Not as slick as Gatorland or St. Augustine Alligator farm, but well worth a stop.

What a great place to see the wild life. From the gators, turtles, and snakes, to Florida panthers and bobcats they have a wide assortment of wildlife to view, feed, and enjoy. Feel brave, hold a big snake and try not to get goose bumps,...More

I have no idea how much they pay Greg, the guy who feeds the gators BY HAND, but I am positive he doesn't make enough. What a show! The rest of the exhibits are very informative and interesting, but watching someone hold a chicken breast...More
