   Gatorland:

GatorLand

Gatorland is one of Florida's smaller attractions, but well worth a visit. It will take a good 5 hours to see everything, but with the children's splash park (Lilly's Pad) and Picnic Area you could easily spend a full day there if you take the pace a bit slower than at the main theme parks. It's also cheap compared to the other parks with an adult ticket costing about £10, but watch for the discount coupons which are printed in the books you can pick up from shops and restaurants as these will give you $2 each off the ticket price.

Entering through the giant alligator jaws you can spend your time browsing a variety of animal enclosures with snakes, birds and of course alligators.

Throughout the day there are a series of shows which are repeated almost continuously so there is usually something you can go and watch. The main ones are the Jumperoo in which alligators will jump up out of the water to grab whole chickens held out for them (on poles).

The Alligator wrestling is also well worth watching and apart from being educational, the staff make a real effort to be entertaining. For a small extra charge you can even get your photo taken sitting on the back of an alligator holding its jaws

The swamp walk is a great area which is probably as close as you'll ever get to the real Florida. Although only a few hundred yards from civilization, this is like the land that time forgot and really makes you realise what a visionary Walt Disney must have been to ever think you could develop on such land.

Round off the day with a train round round the park on their miniature railway, and visit the petting zoo where the kids can happily stroke and feed the ever curious animals which will run over to greet them.
