    Our guide to Gatorland Trainer for a Day

    Have you ever held a baby alligator? Well here's your chance! How about a backstage tour that gets you up close and personal with some of the largest alligators and crocodiles? You'll get to do that too!

    Your day begins with meeting some of the smallest members of the Gatorland family, the baby alligators followed by a backstage tour that gets you up close and personal with some of the park's largest alligators and crocodiles. Next is a hands-on meeting with some of the reptiles and creepy crawlers from the Upclose Encounters Show. Think you're done? You're not. For the grand finale, you'll have a chance to work with a Gatorland trainer in the Gator Wrestling Arena, and those animals are wild! Don't worry, your trainer will keep you safe but you'll get to learn about and experience these big boys and have some fun doing it.

    After this unforgettable experience, take advantage of your included Gatorland admission and enjoy all the fantastic exhibits and shows found within this 110-acre wildlife preserve, including the chance to get up close with hundreds of native alligators and crocodiles at ‘Gator Lake’ which is home to the largest reptiles in the park. Also, see the amazing leucistic alligators, the world’s largest white alligators (over 12 feet in length and 800 pounds) with blue eyes. At Gatorland, you will also find a breeding marsh with a boardwalk and observation tower plus there is an up-close Animal Encounters show where you can meet fascinating creatures from around the globe as well as Florida's native wildlife - including some of the most dangerous snakes alive. 

    Explore the unspoiled native Cypress Swamp Walk and spot wild alligators, snakes, turtles or birds and then head to the shaded 800-seat stadium for one-of-a-kind shows like the Alligators – Legends of the Swamp as one of the bravest daredevils at Gatorland takes the stage with a 6- 8 foot alligator in order to demonstrate the amazing survival features of this legendary creature. Cheer on the stars of the famous Gator Jumparoo as they jump 4 to 5 feet out of the water. Then head on over to the Up-Close Encounters Show where you can expect to find the unexpected!


    The ticket includes full-day admission to Gatorland. The Trainer for a Day experience lasts for 2 hours.
