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!

We happen to come across this great place and glad we went. They were doing some landscaping remodel after the hurricanes so they had to drop the level of the water and it made feeding the alligators so much fun to watch. Buy the biscuits...More

My son-in-law comes to Florida every year and the highlight of his trip is seeing Gators. This place has plenty of those! The best part for him and his little son was being able to feed them. You can buy two bags of alligator food...More

Gatorama is located on Hwy 27 South, in between Okeechobee and Lake Placid, in the middle of nowhere. It's awesome! It's a roadside stop meant to entertain you and make you smile, laugh and have some good old fashioned fun. Great entertainment for both kids...More

Took our grandson not really expecting much and we found ourselves more intriqued than expected, had a really great time. Our grandson had a chance to hold a couple of the Gators and he had a really great time.
