Gatorland’s Popular Gators, Ghosts and Goblins Returns

The “Alligator Capital of the World” is bringing back its popular Gators, Ghosts, and Goblins Halloween event for the third year in a row of family fun and fright done right. The all-ages, daytime, family-friendly event at Gatorland takes place on weekends from Oct. 9 through 31, 2021.



Search for Cryptids in “The Crocs and Cryptids Zone” where you might find Gatorland’s very own Skunk Ape while you search for hidden cryptozoological beasts. Then grab your Lederhosen for Frank & Stein’s Ooky Kooky Octoberfest, featuring live music from “Polkageist,” Gatorland’s own undead polka band, as well as German beer and food for purchase.”

It’s baaaack! “Swamp Ghost’s Monster Museum” returns this year, too. Dare to enter Swamp Ghost’s lair and learn the origins of the world’s most infamous monsters… and maybe come face to face with a ghoul or two.

All this, plus multiple themed haunt zones, interactive characters, animal meet-and-greets, and the popular Children’s Halloween Costume Parade with treat bags for all the kids who participate are included with park admission. The fun keeps coming with amusing shows, games, candy giveaways, and much more! Guests are welcome to wear costumes (just nothing scary or gory please, since Bubba and Skunk Ape are easily scared).

“We are beyond excited to bring back Gators, Ghosts, and Goblins for the third year in a row,” said Mark McHugh, President, and CEO of Gatorland. “We just love Halloween and all the fun, spooky and kooky stuff that goes along with it. Can’t you tell?”
