Gatorland

Gatorland is a 110 acre theme park and wildlife preserve in Florida, located along South Orange Blossom Trail south of Orlando.

Founded by Owen Godwin on former cattle land in 1949, it has been privately owned by his family since then. Billed as the "Alligator Capital of the World," Gatorland features thousands of alligators and crocodiles, a breeding marsh with boardwalk and observation tower, reptile shows, aviary, petting zoo, swamp walk, and educational programs. The park is known for buying and rescuing nuisance alligators from trappers that would otherwise be killed for their meat and skin. The Breeding Marsh area of the park was used in the filming of the 1984 movie Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.
