5 Fun Things to Do in Central Florida

The Vacationeer

In spite of all the roller coasters in Orlando, some visitors seek something more than thrilling drops and upside-down loops.

Here are five ways to be adventurous in and around Orlando!

Tree Trek Adventure Park 

Become a figurative American Ninja Warrior at Tree Trek Adventure Park, where you can test your courage and strength on an elevated obstacle course nestled in a pine forest 10 to 60 feet above the ground.

The course features include a 425’ giant zipline, 97 aerial challenges, suspended bridges, Tarzan swings, and more. There are also two separate children’s courses featuring 21 kid-friendly challenges.

Orlando Balloon Rides

Fly sky-high over Orlando’s vast landscape via hot air balloon. You can take in the views of theme parks, downtown skyline, orange groves, lakes, and forests from a whole new perspective during a one-hour flight, followed by a champagne toast. We recommend the sunrise ride to be the first to watch Orlando wake up from the comfort of your balloon basket.

 Wekiwa Springs State Park

Discover the unspoiled beauty of natural Florida and the crystal-clear freshwater springs upwelling from the earth. Wekiwa Springs State Park is a 7,000-acre park located 20 minutes north of Orlando. Adventure seekers can enjoy swimming, crystal-clear snorkeling, fishing, kayaking, canoeing, and horseback riding all inside this State Park.

Boggy Creek Airboat Adventures 

Race through the Everglades aboard a speeding airboat while spotting native birds, turtles, and alligators in their natural environment. Located just south of Orlando, climb aboard an airboat that will glide you across mossy cypress swamps filled with local critters. To step up the adventure, book a night tour. You may even come face to face with nature’s nocturnal hunters, including the American alligator.

ATV Off-Road Adventure

Revolution Off-Road is a chance to get dirty. Less than 25 miles east of Orlando you will explore 230 acres of tracks and trails tailored for ATVs. There are also ranges for archery, plus fishing for bass. There are both guided, and unguided ATV tours and drivers will be on the trails for about two hours.

The “Mighty Duck” is an eight-wheel amphibious vehicle that allows a driver plus three passengers to explore the lakes and ponds. Don’t forget to pack a towel and a change of clothes!

The list of fun things to do in Central Florida is endless. But if you’re seeking a vacation filled with more adventure, the Hilton Grand Vacations list of outdoor things to do in Orlando certainly won’t disappoint.
