Gatorland’s Gators, Ghosts, and Goblins

Oh my! Gatorland®, the “Alligator Capital of the World,” is getting ready for Halloween with a special event that includes spooky fun for everyone. Gatorland’s “Gators, Ghost and Goblins” will take place Oct. 19, 20, 26, 27 and 31, 2019.

Included with the regular price of park admission will be several spooky-themed areas throughout the park, complete with ghoulish actors and selfie zones, fun shows, a variety of speciality vendors and “Frank & Stein’s” Octoberfest Pavilion with characters, entertainment and themed food and beer for purchase. The infamous Skunk Ape that Gatorland guests have spotted throughout the years will be making appearances throughout the day, along with the mysterious Swamp Ghost and his Stompin’ Gator crew.

“Besides the great family entertainment we offer in the park every single day, we love doing fun new things for our guests via special events,” said Mark McHugh, President & CEO of Gatorland. “It’s just another way we are bringing everyone the best of Gatorland during our 70th Anniversary year.”

Gatorland’s Gators, Goblins, and Ghosts take place at the 100-acre theme park combining Old Florida charm with exciting experiences, exhibits, and entertainment. Originally opened as a roadside attraction in 1949, the park is celebrating its 70th Anniversary this year. Today, it provides affordably-priced family fun featuring thousands of alligators and crocodiles, breeding marsh with observation tower, free-flight aviary, nature walk, petting zoo, educational wildlife programs, award-winning gift shop, Florida’s best train ride, Gator Gully Splash Park, on-site restaurant and one-of-a-kind shows including Gator Jumparoo and Up-close Encounters.
