The Gator Jumparoo Show:
Thrills and chills abound as some of the largest alligators
in the world actually jump four to five feet out of the
water to retrieve food in this famous one-of-a-kind show.
Learn more about alligators and crocodiles and their awesome
powers. Watch as giant alligators jump high enough out
of the water to actually snatch food from the trainer's
hand. A must see for the entire family!
Four exotic and rare species of crocodiles are lurking
in these waters. These ferocious predators can demonstrate
their awesome power in one mighty blast.
Gatorland® offers a unique alligator wrestling show
done "Florida Cracker" style in a shaded 800
seat stadium. Gator wranglers catch a 6 to 8 foot alligator
by hand and climb onto the snapping animal's back to point
out survival features to the audience. After doing stunts
that only a few are brave (or foolish) enough to try,
the alligator is rolled over and put to sleep...only to
be awakened by a tickle!
You never know what kind of animal you'll be encountering
next at the Upclose Animal Encounters Show. You'll get
to meet fascinating creatures from around the globe as
well as Florida's native wildlife - including some of
