Gatorland, the Central Florida attraction immortalized in countless family snapshots of the giant gator jaws at its entrance, burned nearly beyond recognition Monday -- but the family that founded the park in 1949 vowed it will reopen. The gift shop, administrative offices and much of a recent $1 million renovation were destroyed, including wildlife murals on the exterior of the building, landscaping and reinforcement and a fresh paint job for those famous gator jaws.

Not to be a pessimist here or anything, but I've seen alot of companies say they will reopen after a fire and they never do.
the bulk of Gatorland is beyond the gift shop admin bldg. and is virtually untouched. The damage to the park would be the equivalent of the main gate at any other park burning down. I believe they'll bounce back sooner than you think.
