ORLANDO, Florida – During just one day at Gatorland in Orlando, “The Alligator Capital of the World™,” visitors can have several unique Florida outdoor experiences. Take your pick from the Screamin’ Gator Zipline over hundreds of alligators, the Stompin’ Gator Off Road Adventure through the headlines to the everglades, the Alligator Breeding Marsh featuring nesting grounds for migratory birds, and the beautiful and tranquil Swamp Walk. Plus, learn all about alligator safety in Florida and safely feed alligators, which you cannot do in the wild.
A journey on the Screamin’ Gator Zip Line at Gatorland takes guests along 1,200 feet of high flying, heart pounding outdoor adventure over 130 giant alligators. Standing over seven stories tall, the amazing towers feature multi-level launch pads and breathtaking views from high above the treetops.
On the Stompin’ Gator Off Road Adventure, Gatorland guests board one of three, 12-foot-high custom-made, off-road monster vehicles for a 15-minute adventure, running alongside the swamps that feed the headwaters of the Everglades. Riders experience Florida’s natural beauty as they venture through several different ecosystems. The exciting ride is chocked full of wacky Gatorland characters, singing tour guides, swampy adventure, and, of course, lots of alligators. Each vehicle is specially branded and named after iconic real alligators and crocodiles at Gatorland, including Bonecrusher ℠, Cannibal Jake, and Swamp Ghost ℠.
