  • Gatorland

    I visited Gatorland on 11-07-07. I really enjoy this park, sure it's no fancy theme park, but it does stay true to it's "Old Florida" roots. I find it very relaxing, and enjoy taking in all the sights it has to offer.

    I'm not much on giving trip reports, so this is pictorial of some of the animals and sights from around the park during my visit.

    My former photo hosting site basically screwed me over with their new format, so the pics are all now here, plus alot more from that day. http://upov.smugmug.com/gallery/4030985#234644615

              Wonderful Gatorland is a fantastic half day attraction. Would always be a must do stop on them family vacations when I was a kid. Good to see it still going strong.

                I haven't been there in probably 15-20 years. Do they still have the cool little Indiana Jones display about the parts of the movie which were shot there?

                  What a great trip report. I loved the photos. I must admit that I've never been there - always zooming by to get to WDW. Maybe we'll stop next time.

                      Great pics! I'm a big reptile and bird lover, so I really enjoyed this TR. For a minute, I thought I was on my reptile forum!

                        If I recall correctly, the Indiana Jones display may have been in the gift shop area, I know it was inside and may have possibly been lost in the fire. Granted, my memory is very dim as this was at least 15 years ago. But the crocodile scenes from the temple of Doom were shot at gatorland and they had a cool display showing all that.

                        I was a huge Indy fan at that point in time and just remember that by far being the coolest thing at gatorland.

                        How much does it cost to get in now?

                          If the Indy stuff were still in that gift shop, chances are it got heavily damaged, if not destroyed during the fire last Nov. I'll still ask someone though.

                          It's $22.95 for adults and $14.95 for kids, if you buy online you can knock off a couple bucks, there's usually coupons (for a buck or 2 off ) floating around in those tourist coupon books all over Orlando.

                          I usually get in on a buy one day get the rest of the yr free deal they run at various times of the year. I'll prob just get the annual pass next year, since Gatorland and Universal are my places to veg out and are very close by.
