Just when you think you have seen it all and done it all at Gatorland, the “Alligator Capital of the World” offers one all-encompassing specialized experience for guests to be up close and personal with alligators, crocodiles, reptiles, and creepy crawlers to touch them, hold them and do what the trainers do. The Trainer For A Day program takes participants for a backstage tour and educational experience with in-depth details on how Gatorland trainers work with the animals, interact with them, and care for them.
It’s a hands-on exclusive opportunity like no other. And the grand finale is working with a Gatorland Trainer! For a limited time, the cost is $129.99 plus tax, which includes Gatorland admission.
