Gatorland’s Newest Expansion Opens This Fall

Tour the wilds in a 12 foot Stomper Truck!

Complete with swamp dust, fireworks and fanfare, Gatorland, the “Alligator Capital of the World,” officially broke ground this spring on a $2.5 million park expansion, the largest since opening in 1949. The brand-new Gator Joe’s Adventure Outpost and Stompin’ Gator Off-Road Adventure are slated to open in early Fall 2017.

Making an entrance on one of the 12-foot high, custom-made, off-road monster vehicles for the new Stompin’ Gator Off-Road Adventure, Gatorland President & CEO Mark McHugh exclaimed, “You haven’t seen nothing yet. Get ready for even more adventure at Gatorland.” He then led media and VIPs for a special opportunity to board one of the off-road vehicles for a sample adventure. Also on hand for the official ceremony were Robert High, President of H. J. High Construction and Anthony Lepore, Principal of Anthony Lepore Architects, builders and architect for the new park features.

The new Stompin’ Gator Off-Road Adventure will take guests into a section of the park that has never been seen, running alongside the swamps that feed the headwaters of the everglades. Each of the three monster-style, off-road vehicles seats 12 riders, plus the driver, and is decorated to represent iconic alligators and crocodiles in Gatorland’s rich history.

“Our new adventure ride is a natural extension of all our adventure activities throughout the park, and a continuation of our exciting entertainment experiences. The Stompin’ Gator Off-Road Adventure will let guests experience Florida’s natural beauty as they venture through several different ecosystems,” explained McHugh. “They will go over hills, through mud puddles, creep through a real alligator grave yard, and splash through a pond full of hundreds of alligators, of course.”

The new Gator Joe’s Adventure Outpost will be located in front of the Stompin’ Gator Off-Road Adventure, and serve as the park’s home base for reserving and purchasing all separately-ticketed park adventures, including the Stompin’ Gator Off-Road Adventure, Screamin’ Gator Zip Line, Adventure Hour, Gator Night Shine, and Trainer For The Day.
