  • This place is so neat. Our family had a great time. Great staff too!
  • This is an old fashioned tourist spot. It would be nice to see some of the animals is larger enclosures. It's not uncommon for there to be just a handful of people visiting at a time allowing you to nearly have the place to yourself. After purchasing alligator meat there off and on over the years I was disappointed with my last purchase so I'm not sure that I will be purchasing alligator meat from here again considering the prices. I've visited other alligator farms in Florida but no where can you get as close to such large alligators.
  • We have been at Gatorama 4 times now. 2 times last and 2 times this year. On our first visit we didn't know what to expect and really enjoyed our experience. Each time we brought guests with us. On our first visit we saw the keeper feed the alligators by the lake and then we went to the crocodile enclosure and he did a show there. Very informative and exciting. The next 3 times we only saw the feeding by the lake. This last time there was a young lady who did the feeding out by the lake then went back to the area to let people hold the small alligator. A few people held it then off she went, no opportunity for questions or interaction. The male keeper was at the front office but claimed it was too cold to do the show in the crocodile enclosure. He just didn't want to do it because it was warm the last time we were here and he didn't do it then. If you have it on your website you have to do it. The employees just seemed like they didn't want to be there. We we're so impressed last year on our first visit when we felt we got our money's worth but I don't think we will be back again. We and our guests were very disappointed. I have no problem paying the admission price but the last few times we weren't treated to the full potential of your park!
  • My family loved our visit. We had such a great time seeing all the gators and learning more about them. Make sure you buy some "gator crunch", it's a blast feeding the gators!
  • it maybe off the beaten path but we'll worth the journey! staff was great and the park was filled with delightful exhibits and surprises!
