Gatorland is the best themepark I’ve ever been to and I recommend you go waaay before you buy your tickets to Epcot or Disneyworld.
There was a fire there yesterday, but it’s going to be ok.
If you have not been to Gatorland, you have not been to Florida. And it’s not just the leapin’ lizards. It’s the gator wrasslin’, the moms snapping photos of their kids sitting on the back of a live gator, the antiquated train ride, the goofy Bubbas and their corn-pone jokes. It’s so unpolished, so laid-back, so un-Disney.
Gatorland is a time capsule from a better time. So please go when the doors open again to ensure it rises from the ashes.
