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!

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.

It was much better than I anticipated. The staff was very inviting and polite. Hatching an alligator was one of the coolest things I have ever done. The owners seem to really care about conservationslism and live it. I would recommend to get there at...More

We moved out of state and our youngest has never been to Gatorama. He didn't know what an experience it would be. We paid a little extra to wade with the gators and to pose with a big gator. Worth it!!! Do not regret missing...More

When we were there, it actually had to do with height, not age. If you're over 48", you're charged as an adult. If you're under 48", you're charged as a child. That is unless you're an adult under 48", then you still get... More
