Trainer For a Day

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 backstage for in-depth details on how the Gatorland trainers work with the animals, interact with them, and care for them.


It’s a hands-on opportunity like no other. And the grand finale is working with a Gatorland Trainer as an assistant in the Gator Wrestlin’ Arena! For a limited time, cost is$129.99 plus tax, which includes Gatorland admission.
