Founded by the late Owen Godwin in 1949 and still privately owned by his family today, Gatorland is a 110-acre theme park and wildlife preserve, combining "Old Florida" charm with exciting, new exhibits and entertainment, making it Orlando's best half-day attraction®.

Known internationally as the "Alligator Capital of the World®," Gatorland provides affordable family fun showcasing thousands of alligators and crocodiles, including four extremely rare leucistic "white" alligators.
