    Anyone been to Jungle Adventures before?
    I want to make a short list of 'other' things to do for a few hours here and there on our next trip. I've made an itinerary and have left 4 days blank to either have a lazy day at the pool or, well, just do what ever we feel like on that day.

    I've not been to Jungle Adventures. Is it the one east on 50? The one with the HUGE 'gator for an entry?

    Have you ever been to 'Gator Land? I have family that go there every time they come down.

    That's the one Tink. The map makes it look like there is lots to do and we like to try a few new things each visit.

    Yep...been to Gatorland. It wasn't too long after they re opened after the fire. It was sad to see the entrance all burnt out. It was quite a day....but one of the shows made me cry when they brought out a spider :signs091:
    I had just been feeding alligators....snakes were wriggling past my feet but, bring out a spider and I totally freak out! How I managed not to pee my pants I don't know....is that too much info?

    No, not at all! I completely understand not liking a particular creature!

    Well, then that place on 50 looks pretty cheesy. When I drive by there, I often wonder who visits and how do they manage to stay open! :eek:

    If you go take loads of photos! It will be interesting to see what is behind that huge 'gator.

    It's "out there" though. A bit of an undeveloped area. If you continue on east bound on 50 you'll end up in Titusville.

    IN! :eek: Jaysus, no! I'd croak for sure! But I've seen them on the grounds. Not happy with that either. One of the primary reasons we had the pool screened was to keep out mosquitos, 'gators and SNAKES! Ugh! Ugh! Ugh!

    None of those would bother me LOL, I have NO sense of danger where animals are concerned, I'd probably pet a lion if I got half the chance! I'm going to get my head bitten off one of these days for sure!
