At Gatorland, when the sun goes down, the swamp comes alive. Gatorland is a 110-acre theme park and wildlife preserve located along South Orange Blossom Trail in Orlando.
This exciting, 1-hour “Night Shine” tour begins at dusk, with a meet and greet with the guide and the rest of the group at the far south end of Gatorland's parking lot. As an after-hours special, this event is restricted to Gatorland's breeding marsh. Just bring a sense of adventure. Flashlights, insect repellent and alligator food will be provided for all guests.
Head deep into the domain of Florida's most famous reptile, the American alligator. With only a flashlight and a few hot dogs, bravely stroll along the winding wooden walkways of Gatorland's alligator breeding marsh. The sounds of the night are evident all around, from the rustling of feathers overhead to the splashing in the water below. The night is very much alive. Turn a flashlight toward the water to see hundreds of hungry, glowing red eyes slowly moving closer. It’s feeding time — and time to experience a Florida few know about on this entertaining and educational tour for kids of all ages.
