As the site of Sea World, Bush Gardens, and the infamous Everglades, Orlando is home to some of the most notorious attractions. But outside of those obvious marvels are some lesser known attractions to discover during your Florida stay.
With the Kennedy Space Center lying just east of many Orlando destinations, a stay in Florida just isn’t complete until you make your way to this NASA launch headquarters. Learning of the great discoveries made through space exploration is enough to ignite the curiosity of all generations. With Smart Destinations’ Go Orlando Card, you have the rare opportunity to tour launch areas, see giant rockets, explore the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame, experience an IMAX space film, and even train in spaceflight simulators all while saving money! The month of March is the host to many exciting intergalactic events, so don’t pass up the chance to experience the wonders of America’s astronomical hub.
After taking in the prestigious history of galactic feats, continue to be amazed at the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Odditorium. At 10,000 square feet of weird and bizarre finds, prepare to be delighted, disgusted, and amused by the myriad of interactive exhibits. From optical illusions and brainteasers to a balloon-powered chair that flew over the Rocky Mountains, the Odditorium provides endless entertainment for the entire family.
You’ll work up an appetite from admiring the stuffed alligators and rare T-Rex fossils at the Odditorium, so take a short walk over for a delicious feast on the Pirates Dinner Adventure. In this epic, collaborative performance, there will be no shortage of cannon fire, peg legs, and rag-clad pirates swarming the decks. You’ll be set aboard an authentically replicated 18th century Spanish galleon – anchored to a 300,000 gallon indoor lagoon with night sky lighting. Their newest experience includes amazing life-size dragons, swordplay, and aerial artistry for all ages. And watch out, because you may become part of the action! Dubbed ‘The World’s Most Interactive Dinner Show”, you may be brought on stage to take part in the fun! And learning so much about the importance of space exploration and observing some of the world’s strangest relics, you’ve definitely earned some of the captain’s draught. Two rounds are served during the main show, and a cash bar is available at all times throughout the fantastical experience!
