Press Release from Gatorland:

Gatorland®, the “Alligator Capital of the World,” will remain open regular business hours of 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, September 9 in advance of the course of Hurricane Irma.

In addition to the new Baby Gator Marsh that opened this summer, Gatorland will open the brand-new Gator Joe’s Adventure Outpost and Stompin’ Gator Off-Road Adventure in Fall 2017.  Stompin’ Gator Off-Road Adventure will take guests into a section of the park that has never been seen, running alongside the swamps that feed the headwaters of the everglades.  Each of the three monster-style, off-road vehicles seats 12 riders, plus the driver, and is decorated to represent iconic alligators and crocodiles in Gatorland’s rich history.  Gator Joe’s Adventure Outpost will be located in front of the Stompin’ Gator Off-Road Adventure, and serve as the park’s home base for reserving and purchasing all separately-ticketed park adventures, including the Stompin’ Gator Off-Road Adventure, Screamin’ Gator Zip Line, Adventure Hour, Gator Night Shine, and Trainer For The Day.

To learn more about alligators, crocodiles, reptiles and other animals, visit the 110-acre Gatorland theme park at 14501 S. Orange Blossom Trail, Orlando, FL  32837. The park originally opened as a roadside attraction in 1949.  Today, Gatorland provides affordably-priced family fun featuring thousands of alligators and crocodiles, breeding marsh with observation tower, free flight aviary, nature walk, petting zoo, educational wildlife programs, award-winning gift shop, Florida’s best train ride, Gator Gully Splash Park, on site restaurant and one of a kind shows including Gator Wrestlin’, Gator Jumparoo and Up-close Encounters.  Another not-to-be-missed adventure is the Screamin’ Gator Zip Line with over 1,200 feet of high flying thrills, five intense zip lines, and a massive 150-foot suspension bridge.
