Gatorland has enhanced its Gator Gully Splash Park, a water-play area near the front of the long-standing attraction.
Gator Gully, designed primarily for a kiddie crowd, now includes sprayers that resemble coconut palms, a butterfly structure, a water dragon and new gator sculptures for in-water seating. Observers can watch the splashy activity from bright, oversized Adirondack chairs.
“We know how much our guests love our splash park and cooling off during their visit, so we are working hard to keep making it better,” Mark McHugh, president and CEO of Gatorland, said in a news release.
The splash park, which is included in regular park admission, was added to Gatorland in 2007. The splash area was closed through most of January and February for its refurbishment.
Gatorland has extended its half-price ticket deal for Florida residents through March 31. The discounted tickets must be purchased (for $16.50) at the Gatorland box office, and proof of residency is required.
