The sunshine is back, friends! We’re going to have an excellent weekend full of good weather, so now’s the time to get outside. Have you ever been out to Gatorland? This exciting park is full of animals and attractions and it’s the perfect excuse to get outside and enjoy the cool temps and low humidity! Plus, Gatorland has fun for the whole family AND this Orlando-based attraction is more affordable than ever, especially if you’re a Florida resident. Our Clermont Toyota dealership votes you head out and get back to nature!
Gatorland is in Orlando, which makes it easy to get to from the Clermont area (it’s just off Orange Blossom Trail, close to the 417 junction). The park is open from 10:00am to 5:00pm every day, and admission is fairly affordable – it’s $26.99 for adults and $18.99 for kids (but Florida residents get half off with proof of residence – talk about savings!). You can also get an annual pass if you really like the park and it’ll save you a ton of money in the long run!
So what can you expect when you visit Gatorland Orlando? Here are some of the top attractions we think you should check out during your visit:
Gator wrestling: Ever wanted to experience gator wrestling in person and maybe get into the ring yourself? You can do both at Gatorland Orlando – and you won’t believe how big your opponents are. See the pros take on gators over 9 feet long!
Gator Jumparoo show: It may not be Shamu, but believe it or not, gators can jump. During this Gatorland Orlando show, you can see them hit heights of up to five feet as trainers hand-feed them snacks! You’ll also get your fill of gator information, as well as learn more about their crocodile cousins. If you’re into nature and love animals, this is the show for you!
Up close encounters: Get your hands on some of Florida’s most incredible wildlife – from gators to snakes, you can hold them all during this Gatorland Orlando show. (And don’t worry – some members from our Toyota dealership have gone before and it’s as safe as can be.)
Screamin’ Gator Zip Line: Have the urge to go flying through the air over a pit of gators? (If not, we get it.) The adventure seekers in your group should head over to this incredible zipline – it was voted Best Zip Line in the USA according to AOL travel! The line runs 1,200 feet over the Alligator Breeding Marsh (where around 130 gators can watch your progress) and offers incredible treeline views.
Plus, there are a TON of places to eat and drink at this Orlando attraction. Chow down on fried gator nuggets at Pearl’s Smokehouse, satisfy your sweet tooth at the Fudge Kitchen, and put some pep in your step at the Coffee Shop!
