Reservations are highly recommended. We do save a limited number of eggs for our walk-in guests each day of the festival. Those are available on a first-come-first-serve basis ( the early bird gets the worm ). Additional eggs after those are assigned numerically until all eggs are hatched by the end of the day. Visit www.gatorama.com or www.hatchingfestival.com to purchase your reserved tickets (it’s the best way to guarantee you’ll have an egg).
The Hatching Festival is one of those uniquely Florida things I do with my kids every year. The staff is incredible and my kids absolutely love catching baby gators. The best part, of course is the hatching. We get to watch a prehistoric ancestor come to life in our very hands, and that education is priceless.
