Top 10 Ways to Beat the Heat in and Around Orlando

  1. Wet ‘n Wild—The granddaddy of all Orlando water parks, this International Drive attraction boasts 30 acres of slides and flumes, surf and sun. Wet ‘n Wild offers thrill rides, multi-person rides, a lazy river, wave pool, beach volleyball and a kids’ park—all within walking distance of many I-Drive hotels.
  2. Blizzard Beach—When it’s 95 degrees in the shade, a trip to Disney’s Blizzard Beach will definitely help to cool things down. This ski resort themed water park features speed slides and parallel flume rides, one of the world’s longest family raft rides, a continuously flowing creek that encircles the park, and Tikes’ Peak for the little ones.
  3. Typhoon Lagoon—Disney’s other water park has a giant volcano as its backdrop; Typhoon Lagoon has nine exhilarating waterslides and streams and one of the world’s largest wave pools. Thrill seekers can slide down the 214-foot enclosed speed slide known as Humunga Kowabunga, while young children can splash safely in Ketchakiddee Creek.
  4. SeaWorld—There are plenty of places to cool off at SeaWorld, which is best known for Shamu’s aquatic performances. You will definitely get drenched sitting in the “Soak Zone” at a performance of Believe, but keep in mind that killer whales are accustomed to cold, Arctic waters!
  5. Discovery Cove—Just across the way from SeaWorld, Discovery Cove offers visitors an incredible opportunity to swim with the dolphins. Guests can also snorkel through a coral reef or freshwater tropical river, swim with the rays, and lounge at the resort pool. The price of admission includes a specially formulated sunscreen that is safe for animal habitats.
  6. Nickelodeon Family Suites by Holiday Inn—Every hotel in Orlando has a pool, but not quite like this one. Join SpongeBob SquarePants and the Nickelodeon gang in The Lagoon—a courtyard-style, zero-depth entry pool—and one of two pool complexes at the hotel. An interactive four-story water tower with a 400-gallon tank randomly dumps out water that cascades through seven slides and flumes.
  7. Gatorland’s Gator Gully Splash Park—Combining Old Florida charm with the latest in kiddie pool cool, the newest addition to Gatorland is a kids’ splash zone featuring unusual water sources crafted to resemble some of the parks most popular reptilian residents.
  8. Ice Skating at the RDV Sportsplex— There is no better way to beat the heat than going ice skating with your family.  The RDV Sportsplex is a family friendly facility that features one IHL/NHL–sized ice rink (200’ x 85’) and one Olympic-sized ice rink (200’ x 100’). The Ice Den is open to the public 7 days a week.  Skate rentals also available.
  9. Wild Waters—If you are venturing out to historic Silver Springs nature park in Ocala on a hot summer day, keep in mind that Wild Waters water park is right next door. The thrill rides include racing flumes like the Silver Bullet and Hurricane, as well as a toddler wading pool and a wave pool for visitors of all ages.
  10. Florida Beaches—No matter where you are in Florida, you are never too far from the ocean. Cocoa Beach on the Atlantic coast is Orlando’s closest beach; Daytona Beach is about two hours northeast of Orlando and the Gulf Coast beaches at St. Petersburg and Clearwater Beach are approximately the same distance in the opposite direction. And no matter where you choose to cool off during your Orlando vacation, always wear sunscreen!
