Join the Gatorland Vlog Team for a weekend of alligators, animals, and “awesomeness” along with specialty foods, vendors, music, and games.

“We are so excited to host our Gatorpalooza festival again, and roll out Gatorland’s unique style of fun and excitement during this special weekend event,” said Mark McHugh, president and CEO of Gatorland. “No other attractions says ‘Florida’ like Gatorland, and our very own second annual Florida Man Challenge takes it over the top!”

On Saturday, May 15, the wild weekend gets even wilder as the park’s Florida Man Challenge triathlon-style event’s competitors race through a muddy swamp swarming with gators.

“It’s the kind of sporting event that makes the rest of the U.S. shake their heads and say, ‘Only in Florida’ while everyone in Florida just shakes their head and says, ‘Only at Gatorland.’”

The gator-fest is included with park admission.

Florida residents can enjoy a half-off discount on daily admissions, at $16.60 plus tax, per adult (with proof of residency), during the entire month of May, including during the Gatorplooza weekend. Seniors ages 60 and up pay $15.99 plus tax.

Tickets for children ages three-12 are $11.50 plus tax, for a savings of $11.49. Ages two and under are free.
