Hey Thrill Seekers,
Theme Park Fatigue can happen to the best of us! A whole day at an Orlando park can be very tiring, there’s tons of walking involved and lots of standing on your feet. We actually calculated the amount of calories you can lose when visiting SeaWorld and Busch Gardens last year and it turned out to be the equivalent of a good 10k run!
So taking a break from the parks to recharge your batteries is a must, here’s our top tickets and attractions to help combat theme park fatigue.
Kennedy Space Center
Kennedy Space Center is constantly ranked as one of the best attractions in Florida. The still working space station is a great way to recharge your theme park batteries while at the same time visiting a truly icon attraction.
KSC recently added the Space Shuttle Atlantis exhibit to their collection, raised 30 feet off the ground and rotated 43 degrees visitors will experience Atlantis as if it were in space. It also features more than 60 interactive, immersive exhibits and simulators which will provide guests a never-before experienced perspective on the shuttle’s complex systems, components and capabilities.
Kennedy Space Center Tickets can be purchased from as little as £29.00 per adult and £24.00 per child.
The most eye-catching feature of WonderWorks is the attraction’s dramatic exterior; a three-story tall, classically designed building that appears to have landed upside down, atop a 1930s era brick warehouse.
WonderWorks is an amusement park for the mind with over 100 interactive exhibits for visitors of all ages to explore.
You can visit WonderWorks from as little as £15.00 per adult and £12.00 per child.
Yep granted it has the word Park in the title but Orlando water parks are nothing like their theme park brethren. Relax and soak up the rays or go for a paddle in the lazy river. Orlando’s waterparks have something for everyone.
Universal have Wet N’ Wild, which offers the most multi person rides in a single park in Florida. There are also tons of places to sunbathe.
SeaWorld’s water park is called Aquatica and has an Australian and New Zealand theme. They’re set to open their new ride Ihu’s Breakaway Falls this year, which has been billed as the tallest, multi person drop ride in southern America. Aquatica also has an 80,000 square foot man made beach for you to relax on.
Prices can vary, the most popular ticket to include water parks is the Orlando PassPort.
Of all the attractions I’ve visited in Orlando Discovery Cove is easily the most relaxing, it could be the tranquil waters, the beautiful dolphins or the free booze on tap, we’ll never truly know 😉 but what I do know is that Discovery Cove is one of the most enjoyable days out I’ve ever had…. actually its so enjoyable I’ve been there 3 times now.
Featuring a dolphin interaction, a beautiful aviary, serenity bay and a freshwater oasis, Discovery Cove is fully equipped to deal with your theme park fatigue .
Discovery Cove is limited to 1300 people per day and prices depend upon the time of year you attend. You can check availability and pricing here.
So there we have it our top tickets for fighting theme park fatigue… I guess you could try one of these or if you’re tough enough push on through and visit a theme park everyday 🙂
