Theme parks are a great way to spend a fun day. Whether you are hanging out with friends, your significant other, or even the whole family, a theme park is a great way for people of all ages to have a blast. Florida is one of the most theme park filled States in America, they have several to choose from spread all throughout the state. Today I am going to be talking about my personal favorites and including 5 of some of the best theme parks you can find in Florida. We hope that you enjoy these Top 5 Theme Parks in Florida.
1. Universal Studios/Islands of Adventure – Orlando
Universal Studios is a fun filled theme park that is great for people of all ages. They have a ton of rides that cater to kids and adults and there is a wide variety of themes to cater to whatever you like. They have classic movie themed rides such as E.T. Adventure, Men In Black: Alien Attack, and Revenge of the Mummy. There are more rides catered to kids such as Minions Mayhem, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, and The Cat in The Hat. There are also rides for the Superhero lovers like The Incredible Hulk Coaster and The Amazing Adventures of Spider Man. Not to mention of course the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and the Simpson's Springfield, plus there is a brand new ride catered to The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon! It's a world of fun and definitely something you don't want to miss out on.
2. Disney Parks – Orlando
Of course you can't go to Florida looking for a theme park without visiting the Wonderful World of Disney! What's great about it is that there are several different Disney parks so you can experience the Disney magic in so many different ways. There are 6 different parks to visit and they are all a blast. If you're into Star Wars, you want to be full of Terror on the Hollywood Tower of Terror, or maybe you want to rock out on Aerosmith's Rock n Roll Coaster head to Hollywood Studios. If you are wanting to experience the jungle and spend the day with Animals, be sure to check out Animal Kingdom. Want to travel the world? You can do that and experience several countries at Epcot. Looking for a fun water experience? Check out Typhoon Lagoon or Disney's Blizzard Beach! Finally, for all things Magic and all the amazing classic Disney experience be sure to head over to the Magic Kingdom!
3. Legoland – Winterhaven
If you have kids that love building with Legos, Legoland is the place for you! Legoland is filled with amazing sculptures made completely from Legos, there are a ton of great rides including Lego NINJANGO the Ride, Flying School, and Coastersaurus. Legoland is a great way to spend the day with the family. There are a lot of fun things to do at Legoland and it's so interesting what can be made of Legos, I definitely recommend checking this one out.
4. Fun Spot America – Orlando
How could you pass up on going to visit a place called Fun Spot America? You are bound to have a fun time! Fun Spot America is full of rides, games, and just pure fun. I love Fun Spot America because it is like a mix between a typical theme park and a carnival. They have some rides/attractions that you would typically find at a Carnival such as the Fun Slide and games like Balloon Bust, Water Gun Fun, and Hot Shot. However, they also have more theme park typical rides such as the Tea Cups, White Lightning, and Space Invader. Either way, you're bound to have a blast at Fun Spot America.
5. Busch Gardens – Tampa
If you are someone that loves amusement parks but also loves animals, Busch Gardens is the place for you. I absolutely love going to amusement parks as well as the Zoo so Busch Gardens is one of my favorite places to go. They have great rides including Cheetah Hunt and Cobra Curse but they also have great animal shows/exhibits like the Animal Care Center where you can peek in on the doctors as they care for and check up on all the animals in the park or the Cheetah Run where you can experience up close and personal just how fascinating Cheetahs are.
Florida is a great vacation spot because there is SO much to do there and so many great family-friendly spots to hang out and have a great time. These are just a few of my personal favorite Florida theme parks but there are still even more than just these. If you're looking to do a vacation with a lot of theme park days, Florida is a great spot because all of the parks I listed are within about an hour or so of one another so you can just any that you would like! I hope you enjoy these as much as I do. Which of these Top 5 Theme Parks in Florida do you want to go to?
