The theme parks in Orlando, Florida are the place for adventure and family fun, and there is no place accommodator than Gatorland. Gatorland houses thousands of crocodiles and alligators, some of which are very rare, including the leucistic white alligators. This affordable stop for families not only houses lots of gators, it also has a large petting zoo, a free-flight aviary, animal shows, a natural alligator breeding marsh, and of course, the famous Screamin’ Gator Zip Line which brings people from miles around.
Screamin’ Gator Zip Line
The Screamin’ Gator Zip Line, one of Orlando, Florida’s best tourist attractions, was voted “Best Zip Line in the USA” by AOL travel. The attraction takes riders on a journey 1,200 feet high in the air, where they soar over the Nile and Cuban crocodiles, as well as the Alligator Breeding Marsh, as over a hundred and thirty large alligators watch eagerly from below.
Other Park Experiences
Other Orlando, Florida tourist attractions offered by Gatorland include the Rookie Wrestling experience. Participants can actually step into a sand arena and try their hand at wrestling a 9-foot gator with 82 sharp teeth. The wrestling is supervised by trained professionals, but the experience is unlike any other you’ll find at a traditional theme park!
If you’re looking for a spooky experience, come to the Gatorland theme park in Orlando at night for the Gator Night Shine adventure, which will take you and your friends and family deep into the domain of the gators armed with nothing more than a flashlight. Bravely make your way along the wooden, winding walkways of the Alligator Breeding Marsh as you listen to the sounds of the night, nearby splashing water, rustling bushes, and as you turn your flashlight, notice shining eyes looking back at you! The Gator Night Shine tour is an hour to an hour and a half long, begins at dusk, and beckons the brave of heart.
