It’s no secret that we know a thing or two about alligators. To share this knowledge and passion with our visitors, we're hosting Gator Week, May 24 - 29, and offering free Gator Park admission to everyone who brings in a donation of spare change. At the end of Gator Week, we'll also celebrate the inaugural National Alligator Day on Saturday, May 29. In addition to the week of gator-themed festivities, we're celebrating our two adult albino alligators, Snowflake and Blizzard, for producing 18 eggs this month!
During our first Gator Week, we experienced record-breaking jumps, powerful bites and... serious fun. As summer approaches, the time for family vacations is upon us. But, before school breaks, we celebrate Gator Week... again! As many of you have asked, we'll be hosting Gator Week inside our Gator and Wildlife Park May 7th - 12th, giving everyone free admission to our Gator Park! Excited to see what we have planned this year? Check out our Gator Week schedule down below!
When people typically think of Florida, they often picture sunny beaches or children getting their pictures taken with princesses. But, Florida's night life is something visitors (and locals) are missing out on! And no, we're not talking about the nightlife you find downtown. If you thought the Florida Everglades were wild during the day, you'd be surprised by what you see at night during Orlando airboat tours. Don't believe us? Check out these five wild animals you could spot during Everglades airboat tours at night.
From storm drains to golf courses, we've all seen alligators in weird places on the news and, for some of you, probably in your own backyard. But... what about getting up close to them in a fun and safe way? This year, we've added a new and long awaited experience here at Wild Florida... a gator encounter! On the blog, we'll go over four things that could happen during your Gator Encounter at our place.
