Partaking in the same old vacation activities can leave you feeling unsatisfied with your vacation experience. If you’re starting to get a case of the “Vacation Blahs”, visit Orlando’s home to hundreds of alligators and other swamp creatures – Gatorland.

Screamin’ Gator Zip Line

For a bird’s-eye view of Gatorland’s entire park, visitors can embark on an aerial adventure on the Screamin’ Gator Zip Line. The 1,200 feet of line and towers up to 65 feet tall make this an exhilarating experience. Tours last two hours and they are also available as a nighttime experience.

Night Shine
