During the entire month of January 2021, Florida Residents pay just $9.99 for single day admission to see Marshall and all the other animals at Gatorland. Tickets must be purchased at the admission’s gate with Valid Florida ID. This rare discount won’t be around long.
I am always super excited to visit Gatorland and with this newest addition to the Florida local theme park family along with a super Resident rate, it is the perfect time for our Florida neighbors to check it out as well. Even if you are visiting Orlando, I still highly recommend spending a day at Gatorland, as you will not be disappointed.
This truly, very Florida attraction, offers everyone a glimpse into what Florida was, is and hopefully will continue to offer in the future when it comes to wildlife, preservation and taking care of our environment nestled in a family friendly and fun park full of wonder, education and thrills.
Gatorland, the “Alligator Capital of the World,” is ringing in the New Year with the exciting addition of Marshall the Kookaburra to its animal family. Marshall, who is two years old, comes to Gatorland from a loving home in South Florida. Kookaburras are the largest members of the Kingfisher bird family, and native to Australia (shout out to our friends Amanda and Matt from Magic PD!) Visitors to Gatorland can see Marshall in the park’s Jungle Crocs of the World where he will live near the Australian Saltwater Crocodile exhibits.
“We are thrilled to give Marshall a new home with us here at Gatorland,” said Mark McHugh, President and CEO of Gatorland. “He is so much fun, and his loud, “laughing” vocalizations will not only entertain the guests but provide additional auditory enrichment for the saltwater crocodiles. We love adding new animals to our park to entertain and educate our guests. Just a few months ago, we brought Ben and Jerry the Capybaras to Gatorland, and now Marshall. We know our visitors will love them as much as we do.”
I love the “personality” that Marshall has and how he really seems to have grown attached to our good friend, Michael Brown. I also think it is super awesome how Gatorland is making sure that the Australian Saltwater Crocodiles are more at home, bringing Marshall in as a neighbor so that they will get the “sounds of home” with him moving in.
Florida residents will enjoy their favorite rides, shows, and exhibits such as the Alligator Breeding Marsh, White Gator Swamp, Petting Zoo, Bird Aviary, Jungle Crocs of the World, the Alligators – Legends of the Swamp and Up Close Encounters shows, and of course, Social Distancing Skunk Ape. Guests won’t want to miss Gatorland’s newest residents, Ben and Jerry, the Capybaras.
