We started the day with Adventure Hour which is an up close and personal time with the gators where we all got to feed them! This behind the scenes tour requires reservations but is well worth checking out.
Next we watched the Gator Wrestling show where a Gatorland trainer grabs a 6-8 foot gator by the tail and shows off his daredevil tricks.
The Gator Jumparoo Show was really fun to watch. They had the kids cracking up quite a few times! The crowd is divided into teams and you help cheer on the gators as they jump out of the water to get chicken dangling above them.
Make sure your kids wear a bathing suit because they will be begging to play in the water-play area. And if you have an adventurous side, you may want to go on the zip line for an additional charge.
