Merrin and I went to Gatorland yesterday and — honestly — we had a blast. The staff is wonderful and the "shows" are really entertaining. Gatorland is a family style park, and there were quite a few families there yesterday. I wouldn't say it was "packed", but probably 80% full or better.
If you haven't been, definitely make Gatorland part of your Orlando vacation plans. It's small enough to make it a three-to-four hour part of your trip or weekend.
And – yes – they have gator wrestling.
Joe Dirt would have been in awe.
PS – Florida residents can take advantage of $9.99 admission for a limited time.
