Orlando immediately conjures images of theme parks. After all, it’s called ‘The Theme Park Capital of the World’. As you can easily find information about the most famous theme parks, we thought it would be more helpful if we could tell you about some of the slightly lesser known but not-to-be missed places.

 

Gatorland

The Gatorland ‘provides a unique and natural alternative to the larger theme parks.’ It is a 110-acre theme park and wildlife preserve, which showcases thousands of alligators and crocodiles – including four exceptionally rare leucistic ‘white’ alligators. Other highlights include free-flight aviary, petting zoo, animal shows, alligator breeding marsh, and the Screamin’ Gator Zip Line. Gatorland, a family venue, is open daily from 10 AM to 5 PM.

 

Citywalk’s Rising Star

Citywalk’s Rising Star: Here’s a chance for every singing enthusiast to turn into a lead singer. How? At this karaoke club, customers can perform with a live band and backup singers. Participants will have to select a song from a remarkable number of song titles. This happens from Tuesday through Saturday. On Sundays and Mondays there’s a host, live backup singers, and recorded tracks. Citywalk’s Rising Star is open from 8 PM to 2 AM every night.

 

Orlando Science Center

Learning in a fun way is possible at the Orlando Science Center. It is four floors of awesome exhibits, giant-screen films, and more. Some of the exhibit halls here are DinoDigs, Kinetic Zone, NatureWorks, and KidsTown. A number of exciting events are also conducted at this centre. Orlando Science Center is open from 10 AM to 5 PM daily, except on Wednesdays.

 

Lake Eola Park

A multi-colour fountain, a vibrant amphitheatre, and the attractive swan-shaped boats are some of the endearing things about Lake Eola Park. To elaborate, the fountain show is a wonderful combination of light, music, and water.  The amphitheatre hosts a number of cultural shows. The swan-shaped boats are perfect for enjoying the lovely scenery. There’s a 1.4 kilometre sidewalk that circles the park, apt for joggers and walkers.

 

Ripley’s Believe It or Not

Ripley’s Believe it or Not is a 10,000-square feet auditorium with around 600 exhibits, artefacts, and oddities across 16 themed galleries. It has an ultimate collection of unique stuff, including shrunken heads, vampire killing kit, and wild spinning vortex tunnel. The Cargo Hold Gift Shop has several gift options for everyone. Ripley’s Believe It or Not is open from 9 AM to midnight daily. Tickets are available online at comparatively cheaper rates from the official website.
