  • Orlando Balloon Rides
    During 29 years of drifting through the Florida skies, Orlando Balloon Rides had already amassed an impressive fleet of gargantuan flying inflatables when a new balloon arrived. The product of an ambitious factory in Spain, the newcomer holds more than 400,000 cubic feet of hot air and stands as tall as an 11-story building. Four times the size of the average hot air inflatable, it's among the most massive hot air balloons currently flown in the United States. Now reigning as a popular vessel for the company's sunrise tours, the mammoth balloon can fly away with a basket of 24 passengers as it commands the skies, dwarfing most clouds and giving the Goodyear Blimp an identity crisis. From any of Orlando Balloon Rides' baskets, passengers take in high-altitude views of Walt Disney World and the city's skyline, sights visitors rarely get to see from above. Each of the company's hot air balloons is piloted by an FAA-certified pilot who also serves as a knowledgeable narrator of the scenery below.

Recently, their company celebrated its 20th anniversary, and their fleet has grown to more than a dozen boats, and the business has whisked more than one million passengers through Orlando's nearby wetlands. From two locations, Boggy Creek's fan-propelled watercrafts launch into the Florida Everglades, exploring the swampy habitats of gators, turtles, eagles, exotic birds, and exiled Frankensteins. Four different tours offer varied experiences, including a night ride, during which participants observe red-eyed gators prowling for prey.

  • Dash Around Tours
    Dash Around Tours' experienced guides cart up to 14 sightseers to scenic central Florida locales, such as Cocoa Beach, Lake Eola, and Kissimmee, aboard the Dashmobile, a van replete with complimentary food and drinks. During unique expeditions, quirky tour guides take digital pictures for the group's future perusal on the web, as well as dole out their own brand of trivia about central Florida that they admit is more useless than a megaphone at mime school. The tour price includes admission to area attractions, but riders must provide their own change for retail purchases.

  • Kissimmee Ghost Tours
    Kissimmee Ghost Tours' enthusiastic team guides specter seekers through the annals of history as they hoof it through the city's Downtown District. The otherworldly promenade passes the Hanging Tree, where some suggest spirits wreak shenanigans, as well as less famous trees possessed by squirrels in search of nonspectral acorns. Guides encourage their charges to snap photographs in case mysterious orbs of light appear; they also spin tales of the Ghost of the Lake, who lurks in fresh water in search of a dock. Groups of up to 25 people depart for their mysterious meanderings nightly at 8:30 p.m., and the all-flat terrain makes the spooky stroll both scooter and wheelchair friendly. Kissimmee Ghost Tours recommends that guests come equipped with walking shoes, umbrellas, and cassette singles of the Ghostbusters theme song.

  • Oldtown Slingshot
    During the 90-minute techniques class, you and another person will have the rare opportunity to observe a chef in its natural environment as the culinary wizard offers a demonstration on a given subject. Each class concludes with a small tasting at the end, offering a response to the puddles of mouthwater that will have gathered on the floor by that time. Upcoming mini-skills class topics include summer-baking techniques on May 23, offering a solution for cooks long crushed by the quandaries of cobblers, crumbles, and crisps; canning on June 20, to help preserve summertime treats from the advances of time and army ants; and tomatoes on July 25, with tips on sauces, chutneys, preserves, and recipes using the apple's cooler cousin. Groupon users can also apply this deal toward two spots in one of Old Town Cooking School's wine-styles classes ($50) and pay the $24 difference out of pocket.

The "turf" side of surf 'n' turf is also well-represented, with traditional dishes of steak and onions or fried pork chops with rice and beans. But it's not just the food that draws in crowds. Every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, live music permeates the tropical-themed space thanks to visiting bands, DJs, and parrots squawking karaoke tunes.
