    Yes at Pearl's Smoke House they have gator on the menu.

    I haven't tried it yet at Gatorland. I used to get gator tail all the time at Sea World when they had the Al E Gator's restaurant.

    The only gator product I've purchased and consumed from Gatorland so far was some jerky in the giftshop, it was pretty good but also had pork in it.

    Gator-on-a-stick is fried and, basically tastes like chicken. I know LOTS of people say that about many different things...but fried gator really does taste like chicken. Alligator sausage is also pretty good.

    Looks like Gatorland is jumping in on the Halloween fun.

    From the Theme Park Rangers:

    Gator Hallow will only last for 4 nights (Oct 16-17, Oct 23-24) but it sounds like a lot of fun and is insanely cheap (Costs $10).

    You can find more about it at www.gatorland.com

    One of the funnier Jaws skippers is one of the people running this it would seem, so I'm sure it'll be fun.

    So we met Bubba & Cooter. :lol:

    I thought it was fun for what it was and you can't complain about the price either. The creepiest part was actually before the tour happened. While you wait for your group to be called, you can do a variety of things. One of those activities is a bog walk in pitch black to read stories of Halloween. I'm sure I heard a gator or two close by. :lol: I suggest the locals to check it out as it's a different experience then HHN, and again...it's $10.

    I'll have a full review on Wednesday, when the site opens. :thumbs:

    I don't know if anyone noticed, but Gatorland will be doing a Halloween event this year, “Gators, Ghosts and Goblins”, select dates starting Oct. 19.

    Gatorland’s first annual Halloween event brings gators, ghosts and goblins

    I'm sure the HHN planners aren't too worried about Gatorland stealing their thunder :grin:

    It's nice to see a traditional family attraction doing something new like this. Should be good, family fun!
