Where are we going today?

It's time for a SNAPPING family day out in Florida - at Gatorama! This gator-tastic attraction is perfect for those animal loving families who want a day out with a difference.

Gatorama is filled, of course, with those scaly pre-historic creatures. There are 15 acres of gator fun that you can enjoy surrounded by giant oak trees and palm trees. You can explore the complex on 1000ft of walkways, and a wooden bridge, along which it's not just gators that you will find!

Keep an eye out for a host of other creatures, including raccoons, bobcats, monkeys, ducks, geese and peacocks - quite the animal collection!

And of course, Gatorama has all of those amazing alligators, as well as six species of crocodiles - including the famous American Crocodile.

Gatorama is the largest captive breeder of Acutus Crocodiles in the entire North America, so you know there will be lots of amazing encounters for those kids! It's a great place to learn all about the creatures, their habits and their habitats, in a safe environment.

The attraction offers fun gator shows, as well as wildlife encounters, and unforgettable hands-on experiences! Kids can even jump on the back of these amazing creatures, wrangle the juvenile gators, and even try their hands at the Big Gator Fossil Dig. 

Don't miss the Swoopy Palm Fishin' Hole! South Florida has one of the most diverse marine ecosystems in the world, and with three sides of Florida bordered by water, fishing has become a way of life! So it's makes sense that Gatorama offer fishing too! What a day out!

SNAP to it kids, because you never know what you're going to learn next at this fun gator-tastic day out!

    If you want the outdoors, adventure and family time all in one you'll love this place. We had so much fun, we'll definitely be going back! The whole family went yesterday and everyone enjoyed themselves, ranging from Grandma to my 2 year old son. We loved seeing the gators and crocodiles so close, it was really cool walking over the bridge and being able to throw them food and watch them fight for it lol. Ben, the host, was really friendly and personable. We stayed after the wading pool and talked to him. Which by the way, if you're going definitely...Read More

    Super friendly staff. The lovely lady at the counter was a delight to talk with. The zoo keeper of the day, I believe her name was Tiffany was incredibly fun. It was both educational and entertaining. Very interactive and hands on. This place worth the trip and we will be returning. Also a lovely souvenir shop and a crock pot of delicious gator gumbo.

    It was fun and educational. Ben is the best. Very knowledgeable and funny. He makes the day awesome. Was it a bit cool that morning, but invited us back to watch the feeding in the afternoon. "Ticket" was good all day. We left, had lunch came back and enjoyed more fun with the 'gators and crocs.

    We had a great afternoon here! We were the only family there which was great! It was $15 a person and $7 for our 3 1/2 year old.( If your child is 33 inches tall or less they are free.) This place was great just what we were looking for. We wanted our 4 yr old to be able to see gators and they had plenty. When you first walk out onto their 1000 sq ft walk way you are met by at least 15 gators that you are able to feed. ($1 for a bag of bread) my 4 yr old had a blast watching the gators go after the bread! Then passed that there are many cages filled...Read More

    Nauseatingly expensive!

    The attraction consists of a 1000-foot walkway where you get to look at pen after pen of future handbags and croc-meat stew; This place is an active farm after all, and not what I'd call conservation. Other attractions include a skunk (sleeping), a rabbit (filthy) and a couple of depressed-looking wild cats.

    As a previous reviewer noted, the lady at the admission counter is not friendly at all. Talk about lousy first impressions!

    The next day we visited a State Park, and got to see real gators in their natural habitat,...Read More

My husband took our son and 5 year old niece in and they couldn't get enough of catching the alligators, they came out feeling super brave. We're already planning our next trip :)

($1 for a bag of bread) my 4 yr old had a blast watching the gators go after the bread! Then passed that there are many cages filled with baby gators, and also other animals such as a panther, and bobcats. My 4 yr old loved the talking birds too! After we took a walk we got to see them feed the gators and then they let us hold one of the baby gators. My kids loved it! I think its just perfect for the little ones. They get to see tons of gators no long boring boat ride where you might not even get to see a gator plus you get to feed them which was tons of fun! All in all 2 thumbs up!

The next day we visited a State Park, and got to see real gators in their natural habitat, and a whole lot more besides (and for the princley sum of $6 for the whole car load), so save your money and make a day of fun at a park rather than this sorry excuse for an "attraction".
