Orlando may be the theme park mecca of the world but it also offers plenty of other non-theme park fun including hot air balloon rides, outer space excursions, interactive exhibits, indoor skydiving and so much more! If you’re looking for a day that doesn’t involve Mickey Mouse, Shamu or Harry Potter, here are a few of Orlando’s top non-theme park attractions:
Kennedy Space Center – Take an out of this world adventure at Kennedy Space Center and experience NASA’s shuttle launch site, learn about the journey to space, meet astronauts and just explore America’s adventures in outer space! If you have a budding astronaut or space enthusiast in your family Kennedy Space Center is the ultimate NASA experience.
Orlando Balloon Rides – Imagine gorgeous views of Orlando’s impressive skyline as you float high above the city on a romantic hot air balloon ride! Orlando Balloon Rides takes guests on an hour excursion high in the sky for picturesque views of Orlando resorts, Orlando theme parks, Orlando groves and all things Orlando you can’t normally appreciate from the ground.
Boggy Creek Airboat Rides – Once you’ve conquered the sky why not test out your water skills on Boggy Creek Airboat Rides? This thrilling adventure lets you glide along the Everglades at speeds of up to 45 miles per hour. Along the way, you’ll witness some of Florida’s famous wildlife including alligators, turtles, birds and more as a U.S. Coast Guard Captain educates you on Florida’ s wildlife and plant life.
