We will open at 1pm on Easter Sunday

WELCOME TO GATORAMA

Historic Big Gator and Croc Feeding Show

Welcome to Gatorama!  Stroll along our boardwalk and take in our Historic Big Gator and Croc Feeding Show featuring some of the largest Crocodiles and Alligators in Florida. Listen to their distinctive 'jaw pop' and get ready to take some amazing photos of these animals displaying natural feeding behaviors.  At the conclusion of the show, join our staff at the Crackin' Barn for your chance to hold a juvenile alligator.  These are once in a lifetime photo opportunities perfect for adventurers of any age!  Our Big Gator and Croc Feeding Show and Gator Hold is all included with your paid admission to Gatorama. 

 Wildlife Encounters

We're more than Alligators! The South Florida Everglades is home to some of the most unique animal species, and many of them make their home in the swamps that surround Gatorama.  Bring your binoculars and take in the beauty of Florida's Birds as they hunt from high in the canopy or your skills on our Dock and see how many aquatic species you can identify.  Gatorama is the permanent home to a variety of Wildlife Species including: The Florida Panther, Macaws, Peafowls, Bobcats, Kinkajou's the Invasive Python and more!  Check out the time for our Panther Meet Up and join us for this unique encounter. 

Hands On Experiences

After you've toured our corner of the Glades, you may feel like you're ready to give Gator Wranglin' a shot.  We have exclusive hands on experiences available such as: Uncle Waders Catch A Gator Pond where you'll get to jump right in with our juvenile Gators and learn how to catch them with your bare hands. Step it up a notch and give Gator Bare Wranglin'  a try,  where you'll sit on the back of a 7-8 foot Alligator and have your friends take a photo for bragging rights back home.  

Are you looking for fewer 'teeth'  in your Gatorama experience?  Join us at our newest attraction The Big Bone Fossil Dig where you'll take on the role of Gatorama Paleontologist and dig up a real Alligator.  Work to reassemble your specimen in our fully operational Field Station and take home a souvenir of your hard work! 

Wrap up your visit with a good time at our Fishin' Hole, and take in nature. We supply the poles and the bait, you supply the memories.

These are the rockin’ crocin’ mama’s of Gatorama that we know for sure are guarding their nests. Sorry about the poor clarity but the big cameras battery went dead. Did you know Acutus Crocs dig a hole ( they like soft sand) and drop their eggs? Whereas an American Alligator builds a mound nest to lay their eggs. Last nights evening check. Last picture is of a hole(nest) that the mama had just been scratching on ten minutes earlier. My Dad did the old line in the sand trick to see where the one mamma was comin up and then returning to the water. He says his Dad did that around their property in Lakeport to see if any snakes had crossed the line around the play area for his 10 kids. Tricky early settlers in the Glades had to do all sorts of things to survive. Come out and see this behavior today 10-5! Lots going on! Rain or shine🌤 We’ve got you covered....

Patty is in her element today. We had close to 100 Kindergarteners, parents and teachers this morning. Here Patty is giving the “safety brief”. One of the favorites for this age is Patty reading the book Alley - Loo. Patty’s enthusiasm keeps everyone glued to her words and movements. She is a natural. One of the chaperones came up after the program and told her she has gone on a lot of field trips and said Patty was the best, by far....
