Rylan's Review:
   One of the coolest parts of Florida is that alligators are everywhere! I found one in the pond behind our hotel room, but mom wouldn't let me play with it. So when I heard we were going to this place called Gatorland, I was pretty excited. They have a real live alligator wrestling show, the biggest gators and crocodiles I've ever seen, and lots of pretty cool snakes like moccasins and diamondbacks. There's a petting zoo for the little kids too, but the goats and chickens were kind of lame compared to all the gators! The splash park was a fun end to the day- shooting the other kids with water guns was great!

Mom's Notes:

   If you have young kids with no fear, Gatorland is a must see attraction. Keep a close eye on your kids at all times in this park, because you will be up close and personal with some of the biggest alligators and crocodiles you've ever seen. If the thought of seeing a 20 foot, man eating crocodile intimidates you, the park does offer several close encounters of the less dangerous kind. You can tour the park by train, and the kids will appreciate the face painting exhibit at the train station. Toddlers and younger children will love the petting zoo where they can feed deer, chickens, and goats. There is a large bird aviary where visitors can feed Lorikeets nectar for a nominal fee.
    We enjoyed visiting the serene flamingo lagoon, exploring multiple alligator viewing stations, and the "swamp walk", a fifteen minute walk through the swampland that allows the kids to be their own nature observers while exploring from the safe confines of a shaded boardwalk. Great for summer is the "Gator Gully Splash Park." Your kids will love cooling off in this quarter acre swampland themed splash park complete with water guns and giant statues of egrets and alligators. For the more adventurous, the new Screamin' Gator Zip Line offers views of the park from 1200 feet in the air. There are height and weight restrictions, and a liability waiver and additional fees will be required for this attraction.
