At the Reptile Discovery Center, visitors hobnob with rare reptiles in up-close encounters with snakes, lizards, tortoises, and alligators in controlled environments and exhibits. Explorers of all ages traverse a jungle of educational exhibits coming face-to-face with real-live reptiles such as baby alligators, florida pine snakes, and “Naja”, a 6-foot asian water monitor. The center functions as a working farm, providing shelter and nutrition to hundreds of species collected from around the globe, pro-tecting them from increasingly unstable environments and frequent, annoying visits from Carmen Sandiego.

Daytona Skydive's experienced instructors accompany fledgling flyers on awe-evoking plunges above scenic Daytona Beach areas, using sturdy Sigma tandem parachute systems. During a one-on-one briefing, instructors take about 10 minutes to detail procedures and characterize the experience through a series of whooshing noises. Students don stylish jump suits before embarking on a 15- to 20-minute plane ride, during which groups soar to heights of up to 14,000 feet.

Seated at the end of one of Sunshine Bowling Lanes' 32 gleaming avenues, six bowlers can snack on popcorn and prepare their rolling arms for a two-hour bowling spree. As the pin-smashing action unfolds, automated-scorekeeping computers take care of the math, displaying scores, ball speed, and excitement-enhancing graphics so bowling buddies can focus on unleashing their speediest throws and most melodic songs about bowling shoes. Popcorn and sodas keep energy levels up as the bowling becomes faster and furiouser, while giant projectors keep the atmosphere energized with music videos. Lanes come in a variety of family-friendly configurations, with standard bumper-free alleys for confident players, and lanes with a gentle pinwards slope, ideal for kids who got stuck with the square ball. Prices fluctuate throughout the week, so be sure to check Sunshine's schedule to determine when redeeming a Groupon nets the best value.

The high-performance watercraft seats up to six and comes equipped with a USCG-licensed captain, who will harness the power of the boat’s Piratecom headsets to point out targets for your eyes, whether they're animal, plant, or the occasional plantanimal.
