On the first really hot day of the season, we were off to celebrate the Grand Opening of GatorSpot at Fun Spot America.
Everyone was really excited about this day, the $1 million attraction shows off lots of alligators including a white rare one. In addition, GatorSpot showcases exotic birds, snakes, lizards a bearded dragon lizard and two pools with baby alligators.
“Gatorland has for some time entertained the idea of expanding, looked for opportunities to place their brand into other major tourist destinations and Fun Spot America Orlando Theme Parks the perfect fit,” said Mark McHugh, Gatorland’s President & CEO.
“We are excited to be working with Gatorland and the history they bring to Orlando and our industry,” states John Arie Jr, chief operating officer, Fun Spot America. While Gator Spot is a great place to learn all about alligators and some of the amazing creatures that call Florida home, being able to actually hold a real life alligator is HUGE!”
The admission price is $6 but on the grand opening day the first 100 people to arrive were free, and they came, among loyal clients, were present, Congressman Daniel Webster, Mayor Buddy Dyer, District 3 City Commissioner Samuel B. Ings, George Aguel, president and CEO of Visit Orlando, the Central Florida Brazilian-American Chamber of Commerce President, Laiz Rodrigues and President and CEO for the International Resort Area Chamber of Commerce-Maria Triscari, among others. It was a memorable day.
