Thrill-seekers love Orlando for its many scream-inducing theme park rides but did you know there are even more attractions just outside of the parks? Along International Drive, you’ll find plenty of thrill rides and attractions that are sure to stir up the butterflies in your tummy and make you shriek with excitement.
World’s Tallest Slingshot
If you love a good adrenaline rush, you won’t want to miss the slingshot at Magical Midway on International Drive. What happens to be the tallest slingshot in the world launches you 390 feet above Orlando at the force of 3-5 G’s. Make sure to get it on video so you can share your bravery with the world!
For more record-breaking thrills, check out the new Orlando StarFlyer. At 450 feet, this latest addition to International Drive is the world’s tallest swing ride. As you rotate up and down the tower, you’ll reach speeds of up to 60 mph. If you dare to open your eyes, you’ll enjoying sweeping views of Orlando.
Continue your gravity-defying adventures at iFly Orlando. This indoor skydiving adventure is open to anyone over the age of three and requires no previous experience. Before your flight, you’ll be briefed on safety procedures and outfitted in a flight suit. You’ll take flight in a wind tunnel which moves air in a vertical column for you to float on while your friends and family look on.
Andretti Indoor Karting & Games
If you prefer to keep your feet – er, wheels – on the ground, check out Andretti Indoor Karting and Games on Universal Blvd. Hop in to a Sodi RTX kart, and zoom around the track that provides exciting twists and turns all the way to the end. If you have younger members in your party who would also like to be part of the action, they can race the Sodi LRX on the junior track.
A must for any zombie fan, this adrenaline-fueled take on laser tag lets you fend off a zombie invasion. You’ll be outfitted with realistic model weapons then your guide will lead you through a zombie-infested military base. It’s up to you to clear the base of the undead and survive your mission with all members of your party unscathed.
