Great news for Central Florida, Gator Spot at Fun Spot will be opening soon !

GATORLAND  did a break ground celebration on ‘JAWsome’

GATORLAND®, the Alligator Capital of the World, and FUN SPOT AMERICA-ORLANDO THEME PARK were proud to announce that this past January 20th  these tourism industry leaders did break ground on a ‘jawsome’ new joint-venture bringing a new level of interaction, entertainment and education to the family owned attraction at FUN SPOT AMERICA THEME PARKS located on International Drive.
The 15,000 square-foot, reptile oasis is appropriately named “GATOR SPOT” presented by Gatorland. The Honorable City of Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer was present as a select group of personalities invited guest

“What a fantastic partnership by two of Central Florida’s largest privately owned theme parks, GATORLAND and FUN SPOT AMERICA THEME PARKS. This new partnership and attraction will give local residents and guests to the area a chance to enjoy two of the area’s most unique experiences at one great location. Partnerships like this create new jobs and that’s great news for the community,” said the Honorable City of Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer.

“We are excited to be working with GATORLAND and the history they bring to Orlando and our industry,” states John Arie Jr, Chief Operating Officer of FUN SPOT AMERICA THEME PARKS. “Being able to offer this experience to all our guests at the International Drive location is another unique experience visitors to Orlando can share with their families and friends. Gatorland and Fun Spot together is HUGE!”

The GATOR SPOT at FUN SPOT AMERICA THEME PARKS is estimated to cost more than $1 million and will be the only location on I-drive to showcase alligators up to 12 feet. Located inside the thrill-a-minute theme park mecca, GATOR SPOT will incorporate several of the nostalgic elements that have dazzled GATORLAND guests for more than 65 years. The interactive attraction will include an impressive array of alligators, an extremely rare leucistic “white” alligator, numerous crocodiles, up-close encounters, photo opportunities and much more.

“For many years, Gatorland has investigated opportunities to expand our brand into Orlando’s major tourism district and give folks a taste of our unique entertainment experiences,” states Mark McHugh, Gatorland’s President & CEO.  “John Arie, Sr. and I began talking a year ago, and the more we learned about the history and culture of our two family-owned businesses, the more we realized that this is a perfect fit.”

Admission to the new attraction at FUN SPOT AMERICA-ORLANDO THEME PARKS will cost $6.00 per person, adult or child.  In addition to Gatorland’s 110-acre original tourist attraction and wildlife preserve located on South Orange Blossom Trail, Gatorland is also celebrating a 10-year partnership with the Gaylord Palms Resort. Gaylord’s “Best of Florida” exhibit is home to 15 juvenile alligators and 30 native species of turtles.
