Other Attractions in Orlando, Florida 

As Disney, Universal and the other Orlando Theme Parks grow, then other attractions follow all trying to get their bit of your cash. Some are good, some less so and some are really best avoided. A few of each below.

Wet 'N Wild

Part of the Universal Studios brand and included in some of their ticket options Wet 'N Wild on International Drive is the original water park. With fast rides, wave pools and a beach it's newer rivals are only just catching up. In keeping with the Universal brand the rides here are much more extreme than the rides at the Disney waterparks.

Gatorland

Gatorland, 20 minutes north of Orlando on highway 441 is 110 acres of swamp stuffed full of Crocs and Alligators. There are shows, exhibits and even a petting? area to add to the fun. If you get the chance get yourself there and remember to take your camera, there will be plenty of snaps!. A great half day out.

Adventure Golf

As you travel up and down the 192 or International Drive you will see various adventure golf courses, Pirates Cove or Congo River being just two. Think of them as 3D crazy golf with attitude! they are great fun and well worth the time, although think twice about setting out on a round in the midday summer sun, better wait till after dark.

Ripley's Believe it or Not

Ripley's Believe it or Not, Orlando is to be found on International Drive. The museum, stuffed full of the weird, wonderful and gross, is a distraction for an hour on a rainy day. Its not that big and you won't believe the ticket price!

Wonderworks

Interactive exhibits, games and challenges set in an upside down building. Wonderworks is a cross between a Science Museum, Ripley's and a fun fare. Its hard to miss as you drive along International Drive.

Air Boat Rides

Before Disney came to town the Orlando area was just Florida swampland, full of crocs and waterways. Whilst most of that has been swept away you can still get a feel for it on an Air Boat Ride. Boggy Creek Airboat is the best one out there, look for flyers in restaurants etc.

Dinner Shows

The themes change, Pirates, Horses, Knights, Murder Mystery but the format stays the same. Your ticket gets you a very average dinner, 'free' booze and an evening of themed entertainment with plenty of opportunity for audience participation.

Ponderosa

Ponderosa does breakfast in a big way and has something of a cult following amongst UK holiday makers. Its quantity over quality, with everything from the full English to Continental, from Pancakes and Waffles to Ice Cream. Its a buffet, eat as much as you like, style. There are four restaurants in the Orlando area split between International Drive and Highway 192. For breakfast its great, for an evening meal there are better places.
