School is almost back in session! Before your kiddos head to class give them one final summer bash with these fun attractions and parks:

Stay and play for the day at ICON Park. Head to the entertainment district and enjoy such kid-friendly fun as Sea Life Orlando, Madame Tussauds Orlando, Arcade City, The Wheel and much more. Pair the fun with more than 40 restaurants including kids favorites such as Shake Shack and Ben & Jerry’s.

Orlando Water Parks
Get in one final splash before school starts at one of Orlando’s many water parks. Soak up an oasis of fun at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon, enjoy frosty fun at Disney’s Blizzard Beach, enjoy a tropical end to the season at Universal’s Volcano Bay, swim with the dolphins at Discovery Cove and enjoy the thrills at SeaWorld’s Aquatica.

Kennedy Space Center
If you’re looking for something to get the kids back in educational mode head to Kennedy Space Center. The kids will love learning about space and NASA with the NASA displays, real space shuttles, memorabilia and more at this attraction. You can even meet an astronaut at Astronaut Encounter.

Crayola Experience
Whether you have a budding artist or not, every kid loves the Crayola Experience. Discover the magic of color with this one-of-a-kind family attraction at the Florida Mall. Kids can explore everything from art to technology and more, all through color.

For an animal thrill head to Gatorland. See hundreds of alligators and gator wrestling at his historic location. In addition to the alligators, Gatorland also offers a petting zoo, free-flight aviary, animal shows, a Screamin’ Gator Zip Line and more.

Fun Spot
Go-kart racing, thrill rides, family rides, an arcade midway and more is the perfect way to send off summer. You can do all of this at Fun Spot America. Whether you like thrill rides like White Lightning, Screamer or Head Rush 360 or something less scream-worthy like the Bumper Boats or Cadet Track there is something here for everybody.
