Hold on to your shoes! Don’t dangle your feet! Soon, you will be able to get your thrills by zipping over jumping crocodiles and alligators at the unique Gatorland attraction in Orlando. Known as the alligator capital of the world, Gatorland is home to thousands of gators, including the rare Albino gator. Plans for the new Screamin’ Gator Zip Line have made a few jaws drop when they mentioned they would be zipping directly over the alligator breeding marsh, jumping crocs, and through the parks’ bird rookery. The zip line tower tops out at 75 feet high, and park officials are excited that this new addition will allow people to really see some diverse animal habitats. (That is if you can keep your eyes open!)
This 110-acre theme park and conservatory has been here since 1949 and is also home to many birds, bears, crocodiles and more! Some of the exciting attractions here are the live shows such as the Gator Jumparoo and live Gator Wrestling. Park admission is not expected to change, but there will be an additional cost for the zip line experience. The Screamin’ Gator Zip Line should be open by June. Happy zipping!
