Central Florida’s Gatorland theme park is a classic – this year, the attraction known as the “Alligator Capital of the World” is celebrating its 70th anniversary.

But the park keeps evolving, proving that you can teach an old "gator" new tricks, says Gatorland’s Brandon Rivers. And, as he tells 90.7's Nicole Darden Creston, this particular trick comes with a treat!

Gatorland’s inaugural Halloween event, called "Gators, Ghosts and Goblins," starts this weekend.

And before you ask: No, they're not dressing up the alligators. Most folks find alligators spine-tingling enough without Halloween costumes!

And Rivers says there's plenty of family fun on offer.
