From our cover... Panther Springs Brings New Wildlife to Gatorland Two representatives of one of the most endangered members of the large cat family on earth, the Florida panther, made their debut at the all-new Panther Springs exhibit at Gatorland. Neiko and Lucy, a brother and sister pair, are a cross between the extremely endangered Florida panther and a Texas cougar. Shortly after birth at a Florida rescue and rehabilitation center in 2006, the pair were adopted and raised in the loving care of a Florida conservationist until their arrival at Gatorland. The Florida Panther is an endangered subspecies of the American cougar and is the only cougar population east of the Mississippi River. This stealthy predator once ranged through all of Florida to northern Georgia and the southern parts of Tennessee, and as far west as East Texas. The only breeding population now exists in a small area of southern Florida in portions of the Big Cypress National Preserve, Everglades National Park, and the Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge. Historical persecution severely depleted the population in the early 20th century and the Florida panther has been protected from legal hunting since 1958. This large cat was listed as an endangered species in 1967 and was named the official animal of Florida in 1982. Continued habitat loss and degradation from human population growth caused the number of panthers to plunge to about 20 in the mid ‘90s. Due to such a small, isolated population, inbreeding and birth defects pushed these beautiful cats to the brink of extinction. In an effort to save the population, eight female Texas Cougars were introduced in 1995. This “experiment” proved successful in providing genetic diversity and healthier kittens, so much so that the wild population is now estimated between 100 and 160. Without the introduction of the Texas cougars, scientists estimate the number of Florida panthers would be about 10 today and incapable of avoiding complete extinction.

Even More New Wildlife... Gatorland recently acquired over 70 animals from the closed family-owned Florida theme park, Everglades Wonder Gardens. The transfer encompasses a wide variety of Florida wildlife including giant alligators, raccoons, scarlet ibis, bobcats, huge pythons and boa constrictors, rattlesnakes, white-tailed deer, and American Crocodiles including “Bonecrusher,” a giant measuring over fourteen feet. In 1936, Lester Piper opened the Everglades Wonder Gardens in Bonita Springs with the hope of educating people about Florida’s vanishing wildlife and providing a rescue facility for injured animals. Lester’s grandson, David Piper, grew up in the park and took the reins when his grandfather passed away in 1992. The historic roadside attraction continued to thrill guests with their collection of giant reptiles and unique attractions until recently when David and his wife announced they would be moving to Georgia for health reasons. “Our families have known each other for well over 50 years,” says Mark McHugh, Gatorland’s President & CEO. “So it is truly an honor to bring so many of the Everglades Wonder Garden’s beautiful animals to Gatorland where they can carry on the Piper family’s dream of entertaining and educating visitors.” Internationally recognized photographer John Brady and his family will take over operations of the Everglades Wonder Gardens in the Historic District of Bonita Springs. The new operators will focus on the botanical gardens, which has some of the most unique species of both native and exotic specimens from South America. The history and heritage of the gardens is of great importance to the community, and Brady will continue to uphold its legacy through operation of a museum in the main building. Gatorland is a 110-acre theme park and wildlife preserve, combining “Old Florida” charm with exciting new exhibits and entertainment. The park opened as a roadside attraction in 1949. Today, it provides affordable-priced family fun with thousands of alligators, crocodiles, an aviary, breeding marsh with observation tower, petting zoo, nature walk, educational wildlife programs, Gatorland award-winning gift shop, Florida’s best train-ride, restaurant, Gator Gully Splash Park and one-of-a-kind reptilian shows including the Gator Wrestlin’ Show, Gator Jumparoo and the Upclose Encounters Show, the new White Gator Swamp and the Screamin’ Gator Zip Line.

See the Space Shuttle Atlantis at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex The world’s most comprehensive attraction devoted to the space shuttle opened last summer at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. Space Shuttle Atlantis SM is the new, 90,000-square-foot, $100 million home of the priceless, historic spacecraft that tells the incredible story of NASA’s 30-year Space Shuttle Program. More than 30 Atlantis astronauts participated in the grand opening of Space Shuttle Atlantis, which offers guests the public’s first access to the attraction. From only a few feet away, guests are awed and inspired with an up-close, 360-degree view of Atlantis. The shuttle is dramatically showcased as if it were in orbit – as only astronauts have had a chance to see it. Atlantis is elevated 30 feet off the ground and rotated at a 43.21-degree angle with its payload bay doors open and Canadarm (robotic arm) extended. Space Shuttle Atlantis features more than 60 interactive, touch-screen experiences and high-tech simulators inviting guests to “be the astronaut,” bringing to life the people, passion and patriotism behind the Space Shuttle Program as well as the complexity of the engineering marvel that launched the Hubble Space Telescope and built the International Space Station. Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex brings to life the epic story of the U.S. space program, offering a full day or more of fun and educational activities, including the Kennedy Space Center Tour featuring the Apollo/Saturn V Center with an actual Saturn V moon rocket, the new Angry Birds™ Space Encounter, Shuttle Launch Experience, 3D IMAX® space films, Astronaut Encounter, Exploration Space: Explorers Wanted and many other interactive exhibits. Admission also includes the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame®, featuring historic spacecraft and the world’s largest collection of personal astronaut memorabilia, which opens daily at noon and closing times vary by season. For more info, visit www.TourKSC.com or see our ad on the back cover.

See a Space Shuttle Up Close at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex The world’s most comprehensive attraction devoted to the space shuttle opened last summer at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. Space Shuttle Atlantis SM is the new, 90,000-square-foot, $100 million home of the priceless, historic spacecraft that tells the incredible story of NASA’s 30-year Space Shuttle Program. More than 30 Atlantis astronauts participated in the grand opening of Space Shuttle Atlantis, which offers guests the public’s first access to the attraction. From only a few feet away, guests are awed and inspired with an up-close, 360-degree view of Atlantis. The shuttle is dramatically showcased as if it were in orbit – as only astronauts have had a chance to see it. Atlantis is elevated 30 feet off the ground and rotated at a 43.21-degree angle with its payload bay doors open and Canadarm (robotic arm) extended. Space Shuttle Atlantis features more than 60 interactive, touch-screen experiences and high-tech simulators inviting guests to “be the astronaut,” bringing to life the people, passion and patriotism behind the Space Shuttle Program as well as the complexity of the engineering marvel that launched the Hubble Space Telescope and built the International Space Station. Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex brings to life the epic story of the U.S. space program, offering a full day or more of fun and educational activities, including the Kennedy Space Center Tour featuring the Apollo/Saturn V Center with an actual Saturn V moon rocket, the new Angry Birds™ Space Encounter, Shuttle Launch Experience, 3D IMAX® space films, Astronaut Encounter, Exploration Space: Explorers Wanted and many other interactive exhibits. Admission also includes the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame®, featuring historic spacecraft and the world’s largest collection of personal astronaut memorabilia, which opens daily at noon and closing times vary by season.

Prehistoric Fun at Dinosaur World

Founded in 1998, Dinosaur World is one of the great, themed attractions of its kind. This year, three highly entertaining and educational shows will make their debut to park guests. The first show, a walk-around character based on a quirky paleontologist, will provide guests a hands-on tour of the all-new Exploration Cave where they will learn about fossils, and why fossil discoveries made by paleontologists are so important to you and I today. The second show, a “Dino Disguise” show asks guests to help our guide create the perfect costume to allow him/ her to walk among the dinosaurs. Guests will help pick the head, tail and feet of our fearless explorer who will within minutes be transported back in time to put the disguise to the ultimate test. Next, guests will be invited to a game show-style setting and tested on everything dinosaur! This fun filled, interactive encounter, known as “Triviasaurus Rex,” will allow kids of all ages to test their prehistoric knowledge complete with prizes for winners! See our ad on page 13.

THE ADVENTURE CONTINUES:

THE WIZARDING WORLD OF HARRY POTTER– DIAGON ALLEY IS COMING TO UNIVERSAL... Building on the global phenomenon that is The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Universal Orlando Resort and Warner Bros. Entertainment is completing an expansion of historic proportion with the entirely new themed environment, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley.

Artist Rendering

Scheduled to open in the spring, the world’s first centrally-themed, multipark experience expands The Wizarding World of Harry Potter across both Universal Orlando theme parks and allows Universal’s creative team to bring an unparalleled vision to this unique project. The new area will bring to life some of the experiences and places found in and around London in the Harry Potter books and films, offering brand-new adventures for fans and theme park guests from around the world.

Diagon Alley and ‘London’ will be located within the Universal Studios Florida theme park, which is adjacent to Universal’s Islands of Adventure theme park, where guests now experience Hogwarts and Hogsmeade. The new area within Universal Studios will be just as expansive, immersive and authentic as the existing themed environment. And – just like in the books and films – guests will be able to travel between ‘London’ and Hogsmeade aboard the Hogwarts Express. To bring Diagon Alley and ‘London’ to life, Universal’s creative team is working closely with Warner Bros. and the production design team from the Harry Potter films – just as it did for Hogwarts and Hogsmeade. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade opened at Universal’s Islands of Adventure in June 2010 as a fully immersive Harry Potter themed environment - bringing to life the bestselling books by J.K. Rowling and the blockbuster feature films from Warner Bros. Since that time, it has become a global phenomenon, entertaining millions of people from around the world.
