A Story By

Whether you‘ve called Orlando home for the last few years or are new to the City Beautiful, you‘ve probably learned—there‘s SO much to do!

You‘ve driven past by them on I-4, seen their billboards and advertisements, and are constantly bombarded with Orlando‘s biggest attractions. But have YOU done them all?

The UNATION Orlando Challenge: 

Before sending your loved ones to experience all Orlando has to offer, why not check them out yourself? Be the best Orlandoan (yes, that‘s what we‘re called!) you can be.

Rise to the challenge and check off all the best Orlando attractions!

The Orlando Challenge A—Z:

✅ A:

Challenge yourself on the ropes course, enjoy the XD Dark Ride, play laser tag, games, and race your friends on their indoor go-kart track!

Get outdoors and face your fears in Central Florida at Revolution Off Road. From driving an ATV or buggy driving to extreme fishing and archery, clay shooting, and more, there‘s so much to experience!

Get out of the Florida heat at SeaWorld‘s water park: Aquatica. Fun for all ages, experience thrilling slides and extraordinary pools! Throw on your bathing suit and have fun!

✅ C:

What‘s better than eating chocolate? Going on a tour ALL about chocolate! At the Chocolate Kingdom Factory, you can see how chocolate is made, learn about the history of chocolate, and leave with bags of goodies to share with the whole family (or not)!

Cool off at CoCo Key Hotel and Water Resort! Spend a day—and the next—at CoCo Key, which has nearly 400 spacious guest rooms and 54,000 sq. ft. of canopy-covered and outdoor water attractions.

Want all the fun of the Crayola Experience but don‘t want to wait in line? Check out these tickets for a skip-the-line, VIP opportunity! Have a day full of color, fun for the whole family.

✅ F:

One full day of fun? It‘s HUUUGE at Fun Spot America in Orlando. Ride coasters, go-karts, and cool off on the splash pad at this family-friendly attraction.

✅ G:

See gators, fly on the Screamin’ Gator Zip Line, and get fast track admission into the park at Gatorland Orlando! Because are you even a Floridian if you haven‘t seen a gator up close?!

Want to truly do it all and don‘t know where to start?  With inclusive entrance to multiple attractions, a digital guide, and 60-day validity, you can truly take on Orlando like a tourist—but with savings like a local!

✅ I:

Get access to eight different attractions at Orlando‘s ICON Park! With multiple combinations available, you can pick the one that best suits your schedule and what YOU want to do (we recommend EVERYTHING)!

Hate planning? The ICONic City Tour of Orlando has got you covered—because chances are, you haven‘t done EVERYTHING in Orlando. From a boat cruise through the Chain of Lakes to Disney Springs, Park Avenue, and the ICON 360 Plaza, you can do it ALL with this City Tour!

✅ M:

Never been inside Madame Tussauds? You‘re missing out! This internationally renowned wax attraction gives you the chance to your favorite people and characters—made of wax!

Dinner and a show? Sign us up! At Mango‘s Tropical Cafe, you can enjoy 2 hours of live entertainment plus a 3-course dinner! Better than dinner and a movie—or in front of the TV, right?

Orlando isn‘t always glitz and glam! Don‘t be afraid to get a little muddy at the Mucky Duck Experience! Get a full, one-hour drive with an amphibious vehicle—and experience a bit of Orlando‘s muddier side!

See the illusions, live in person at ICON Park! Grab your friends and get creative with some pretty awesome pics at the Museum of Illusions Orlando!

Ever wish you had gills? Well, at Florida’s only 360° tunnel, you can see what it’s like underwater at SEA LIFE Orlando! This aquarium has a ton of fish and ocean creatures you may have never seen before!

Whether it‘s been a while or you STILL haven‘t been, you should experience SeaWorld! Jump on adrenaline-rushing rides, enjoy well-organized shows, and experience live animal exhibits.

✅ T:
