“We just love Halloween time at Gatorland and putting on this frightfully fun event for all our guests,” said Mark McHugh, President, and CEO of Gatorland. “It’s our fourth year of everything spooky and kooky at Gators, Ghosts, and Goblins. See you there!”
Gatorland’s Gators, Ghosts, and Goblins is included with regular park admission. Guests are welcome to wear costumes, but nothing scary or gory, please. Skunk Ape is easily frightened.
