WE ARE SO MUCH MORE THAN GATORS!

We’ve made it easy for everyone to PLAY WILD at Gatorama, and have added several new attractions which are all free with your paid admission. From the Itty Bitty Farm to our Gator Pull, there is something for everyone. Want to check out some of our reptiles up close? Our Reptile House is the perfect place to come eye to eye of the most unique animals on the farm.

Want to take a walk on the WILD side – we’ve got you covered. The perfect way for the whole family to enjoy their day at Gatorama, our Gatorventures include hands on adventures that are exciting for the kids, and fun for the adults. With just a few dollars more, you can make reservations to include everything from Uncle Waders Catch A Gator Pond to our infamous Face To Face (18+).  Of course, we are ADA friendly and can accommodate your needs for most Gatorventures. Please call ahead to discuss this with any of our guest services members.

When your friends and family want to know where they can see Alligators in Florida, bring them down to the Glades and check out Gatorama. We’ve got something for everyone!

ALBINO GATOR ENOUNTER

ADVENTURE LEVEL: Beginner
COST: $10

Meet Pearl, a juvenile albino alligator that is making her home here at Gatorama.

BIG PYTHON ENCOUNTER

FACE TO FACE CHALLENGE
