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!

Nice little place to spend a couple of hours. There are quite a few gators and crocs in many sizes. Lots of other animals to enjoy too. The staff is very friendly and informative. Lots for kids to do- fossil dig, catch a gator, picture on a gator. Worth the trip!

With a large population of alligators and crocodiles, allegedly one of the largest in the world, it's difficult not to be astounded by the amazing creatures that call Gatorama home. You will definitely want to visit during one of the feedings, a feat that you cannot miss! A wide variety of others reside here as well, ranging from Macaus to... More

Had visited this attraction several years ago and thought it was just "so so". But this visit was much more exciting. New exhibits have been added as well as many interesting activities. The gators and crocks were all active and a exciting feeding program. The gators and crocks all have a great natural environment to swim around in or just... More

Found this while driving to Miami with my bestie visiting from Hawaii... it was overcast, cold and drizzly- but we had a blast ! Great staff and great gators. A nice bit of old Florida and Americana at its best

Great opportunity to see alligators, c & more up close.....The feeding was a bust and the gift shop sucked, but the staff was friendly. Admission was reasonable.... hope the working farm uses it to take care of the 'captives'. Loved the tortoises.

I wanted something a little different to do, so I took the 2 hour (one way) drive from Fort Lauderdale to Gatorama! What a thrill to see the gators, crocs, caimans and other assorted wildlife. Admission came with a bag of croc crunch (looked like big pellets of dog food!) to feed them with--just FYI, the larger crocs couldn't be... More

EXCELLENT TIME. Worth the money the crocs and alligators are amazing to see up close. You can feed all the animals that are there. My five year old loved it, he got to catch a couple of baby gators. The girls were informative, safety and did a fantastic job of explaining the differences between crocs and gators

We planned our driving time between Marco Island and Orlando for this about mid-way stop, to allow us to do some stops between the checkout and checkin times of our hotels, and we got there perfectly in time for the 1145A show. We are a fairly active family with high standards for our visits. Gatorama met our expectations, and we... More

We were in the area and looking for something to do with our 10 year son. We were told about Gatorama I am so glad we took a chance, we had a great morning there. Lots of alligators in the pond. Our son had the best time in the alligator wading pool catching alligators and then sitting on a much... More
