We did not enter the restaurant. We went to the Gator floor, we met a young man named Chris. He gave us a brief overview, as there was not a gator show, since it was off season. We visited this location the week of Christmas....More

Yes, there is a $10 charge to hold the alligators and get a souvenir photo taken with them. You can enter Gator Beach and see our exhibit for free - Holding an alligator and feeding the alligators are the only charges.

Go mid-week after lunch, but before dinner to avoid the long wait. Kids will enjoy the gator viewing. Be sure to take Sharpie markers to add your own graffiti (it's allowed and encouraged).
