Orlando is known around the world for some of the most popular theme parks and amusement parks. It is one of the most exciting destinations for adrenaline seekers and some of Orlando’s theme parks are known for their thrilling rides. Apart from the mainstream thrill-seeking in Orlando, there are many other places you can head to for the kicks. Here, we have listed 5 of the best places in the city that you should visit if you’re looking for an adrenaline rush:
- Walt Disney World Resort
Visiting Orlando and not visiting Walt Disney World, is like visiting Paris and not seeing the Eiffel Tower. The resort offers four theme parks, Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom. There’s never a dull moment here because of the vast variety of things to do ranging from a Segway ride through the Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow or going for a trek in Animal Kingdom’s Wild Africa. There are also two water parks – Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach. Summit Plummet at Disney’s Blizzard Beach is one of the craziest water slides in the world where you go down 12 stories at almost 60 miles per hour.
If you are all about trying unique new activities, then make it a point to visit Gatorland during your time in Orlando. It is a wildlife preserve and theme park which offers the audience a (once in a lifetime) chance to fight an alligator. If that is too gutsy for you, you could take the Screamin’ Gator Zip Line which is a 30 mph ride stationed over the crocodiles.
- Forever Florida Wildlife Conservation Area
Although you might not have heard of it as much as the other places in this list, it is as exciting as each one of them. It is spread over a vast area of 4700 acres and is located an hour’s drive from downtown Orlando. If you love to engage with thrilling activities during your travels, you will love this place since it is packed with many options such as horse riding, zip-lining, a 70-foot freefall known as the ‘Panther Pounce.’
- Universal Orlando Resort
No trip to Orlando can be complete without visiting Universal Orlando Resort. It is the ideal place for families to visit since there is something here for people of all ages and interests. Whether you are interested in Harry Potter, Spider-Man or Transformers or more crazy rides such as the Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit, a crazy roller coaster that begins with a 90-degree lift hill.
- Revolution Off Road
While this comes last in the list, it is as amazing as all the other ones. Of the many exciting things that you can do here, one of the most recommended ones is to drive an All Terrain Vehicle, amphibious ‘Mucky Duck’ or dune buggy.
So, head to any of the above-mentioned places in Orlando for a guaranteed adventure!
