Airboat Ride and Gatorland Park – Overview
Experience the Airboat Ride and Gatorland Park! Take a bus tour from Orlando to two of Central Florida’s most popular attractions! Spot gators in the wild as your airboat glides through the central Florida Everglades and learn more about the number one resident of Florida at Gatorland!
Take an airboat across Central Florida’s Everglades. From this vantage point, you will possibly spot a wide variety of wild animals, including the area’s most famous resident – the alligator. The animal was once endangered, but has been now saved from extinction and is truly admirable. But remember, that there are no guarantees as to what you will see in the wild; it’s the luck of the draw.
However, don’t feel disheartened if you don’t spot any gators in the wild, because you will definitely see some at Gatorland. It is home to over 4,000 alligators, snakes and other exotic animals. Gatorland is a dream destination for reptile enthusiasts.
There are many exhibits to see, including The Gator Jumparoo Show where large alligators jump four to five feet out of the water to retrieve food. Then, you’ll see the breathtaking Alligator Wrestling Show in which wranglers catch a 6 to 8 foot beast by hand in front of an audience of up to 800 excited spectators. You’ll even get the chance to get closer to some fascinating reptiles during the Up-Close Encounters Show.
After completing a variety of thrilling stunts, younger guests can refresh in the ‘Gator Gully’ Splash Park. Bring your flip flops & swim suits, because you might get wet!
Take a wild alligator adventure you’ll never forget!
