Gatorland is a 110-acre theme park and wildlife preserve founded 67 years ago by Owen Godwin and it has been privately owned by his family since then. Gatorland, a.k.a. the "Alligator Capital of the World," features thousands of alligators and crocodiles, a breeding marsh where you can observe on the boardwalk or observation tower, reptile shows, aviary, petting zoo, swamp walk, and educational programs. Enough to keep your family busy for an entire day! On a side note, the Breeding Marsh area of the park was used in the filming of the 1984 movie "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom!"
