ORLANDO, Fla. - On Wednesday morning, Gatorland announced plans for a new off-road attraction at their Orlando park.
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 attraction is part of the largest expansion for the park since 1949. Also under construction is the new Gator Joe's Adventure Outpost which will 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.
Gator Joe's Adventure Outpost and the Stompin' Gator Off-Road Adventure are slated to open Fall 2017.
