Crocodile Crossing is $68 per person, and everyone going through the course must be at least 8 years old and in good physical condition. Not quite ready for Crocodile Crossing? The Sepik River Course is lower to the ground and not quite as long. It’s $38 per person. Another opportunity for visitors to test their daring is the Python Challenge, a 40-foot free-fall that gently lowers fliers to the ground. It’s $10 for one jump or $15 for three.
Once your adrenaline is pumping, spend time visiting some of the animals that call the park home, like pythons, lemurs, macaws and Maximo, a saltwater crocodile clocking in at 15 feet, 3 inches and 1,250 pounds.
See Wildlife Shows
Then head over to one of the educational wildlife shows for an in-depth look at the park’s residents. Highlights include: Realm of the Alligator, combining an animal talk with training demonstrations. (Try to attend a show around noon or 3 p.m. so you can see an alligator feeding, too.) Scales & Tails Reptile Show, a hands-on experience during which some guests get to hold a snake. Rainforest Review, showcasing the on-stage personalities of some of the park’s parrots and other rainforest residents. Florida’s Forest Friends, an interactive program that teaches about the Sunshine State’s habitats through its animals.
Show times and locations may change with the weather, so check the Alligator Farm’s website or pick up a guide once you’re in the park. The guide also shows the locations of the park’s snack bar, the ToucanTina, and KidsZone playground — both are ideal for taking a break from touring.
