Our guide to Gatorland & Airboat Safari
Get ready for an exciting airboat ride across the Central Florida Everglades, taking in sightings of exotic birds, turtles and the Florida alligator in their natural environment before your captain cranks up the speed for an exhilarating journey through the swamps.
Afterwards, head to Gatorland, one of the oldest and best loved attractions in Orlando. This 110-acre park and wildlife preserve holds a whole host of fun as you meet alligators, crocodiles, turtles, birds and many other local animals in their natural environment.
At Gatorland, you will find a breeding marsh with 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, snake, turtle or birds and then head to the shaded 800-seat stadium for some alligator wrestling.
Gator wranglers catch an alligator by hand and climb onto the snapping animal's back to point out survival features to the audience.
After doing stunts that only a few are brave enough to try, the alligator is rolled over and put to sleep...only to be awakened by a tickle!
