Explore Unique Attractions in Orlando
When it comes to Orlando attractions, the fun starts on International Drive, aka I-Drive, which is close to Walt Disney World® Resort, Universal Orlando Resort and SeaWorld® Orlando in the heart of Orlando’s tourism district. Here, you can enjoy rarefied views of Orlando from aboard The Wheel at ICON Park® — a 400-foot-tall observation wheel. ICON Park also invites you to go even higher and much faster on Orlando StarFlyer, or explore wonders and marvels at Madame Tussauds Orlando and SEA LIFE Orlando Aquarium, and Museum of Illusions, among other reasons to visit.

One of our oldest attractions, Gatorland features an enthralling mix of real animal encounters and wild rides you won’t want to miss. For even more outdoor action, look into airboat tours at Boggy Creek Airboat Adventures, Wild Florida or Spirit of the Swamp Airboat Rides, among others, or something a little calmer at Epic Paddle Adventures. If you need more lift, zip-line adventures await at Gatorland’s Screamin’ Gator Zip Line and Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens’ Seminole Aerial Adventures, to name a few.
