Gatorama

Palmdale, FL 33944

Steeped in old Florida charm, Gatorama is one of the few remaining original Florida roadside attractions. Thousands of snaggle-tooth 'gators and crocs of the swampy southern lowlands call Gatorama home along with Allen and Patty Register and their son Benjamin. Teetering on the edge of civilization the Register's are fifth and sixth generation Florida Crackers who love sharing their piece of the Everglades with the thousands of visitors that make the trek down to thier corner of the Glades.

A visit to Gatorama includes an exciting walk along bridges and boardwalks teeming with alligators, crocodiles, bobcats, panthers, birds, and other Florida wildlife. All set in a natural hammock. No binoculars required! Meet the zookeeper and take your picture with a live alligator. See exciting animal shows. Added adventures may be purchased like an opportunity to be a keeper and feed the giants at one of the shows! Purchase Gator tail and ribs or homemade Gator Gumbo if Patty has any in the pot!

Customized experiences offered include birthday parties, scouting adventures and field trip experiences for students and teachers. We can also host your next group or corporate event. Reserve a "Gator Night Shining". A rare chance for your group to tour our working farm and park after hours as the sun goes down. You will be entertained and informed as you learn and experience all aspects of alligator management and farming. You'll enjoy a honest to goodness cracker meal of gator tail and ribs, BBQ, swamp cabbage, and all the fixins'. Then armed with just a flashlight you'll night shine just like the poachers of old did.
