Whether you’re a card-carrying coaster enthusiast or the purse-holder who’s happy to have both feet firmly on the ground, here in the heart of the sunshine state you’ll find some of Orlando’s top roller coasters, each inspired by the sea – from its force and power to its playful side to its most timeless legends.
Walt Disney World
Walt Disney World Resort is an entertainment and recreation center of nearly 40 square miles featuring four theme parks (Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom); two water adventure parks (Disney’s Blizzard Beach and Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon); dozens of resort hotels (24 owned and operated by Walt Disney World); 81 holes of golf on five courses; two full-service spas; Disney’s ESPN Wide World of Sports complex; and Disney Springs, an entertainment-shopping-dining complex.
Stroll through the scenic World Showcase and experience the architecture, culture and people of 11 countries. Enjoy sample-sized food, musical performances, and special events throughout the year at Epcot’s four different festivals. Hop aboard Soarin’ Around the World to fly high on a hang-gliding adventure to famous places across the globe. Voyage to Arendelle aboard an ancient Nordic vessel as you take a musical tour of the wintery world of Frozen on Frozen Ever After. Feel as if you’ve shrunk to the size of a rat on a 4D culinary adventure when you take a spin around Gustaeu’s kitchen at Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom
Animal Kingdom’s 500 acres are home to some 1,700 animals representing 250 different species throughout the park. A ride on the Kilimanjaro Safari will give you a chance to see many of them as they take you through the African Savannah.
Universal Studios Orlando
It’s just like watching your favorite TV shows and movies IRL, except with the ultimate ride-y things like twists, turns and drops. Face villains more menacing than your kids pre-churros. Save the earth daily or even hourly. Oh and dragons, have we got dragons. And one of them even breathes real fire so that’s cool (err hot). This is way beyond the movies.
