With an area encompassing a track and hobby shop, the nearly 14,000-square-feet state-of-the-art racing facility at Space Coast R/C is the ultimate pathway for high-speed competition enthusiasts. The venue offers track time to drivers of levels from avid racers to curious spectators. Drivers watch and control electric off-road 1/8 and 1/10 scale vehicles from the driver stand, which can accommodate up to 20 drivers, navigating them over the course's challenging turns and around sharp corners. Lap timing encourages racers to monitor their progress with increased speed, spurring them to take smoother turns and avoid bumping into the yellow tubing that forms the track's boundaries. After races, hobbyists can peruse the onsite pro-shop for new car chassis and replacement parts to keep their rides in top performing shape. Space Coast R/C also makes their venue available for guests looking to celebrate a variety of functions such as birthdays and business meetings.

When paintballers feel ready for action but aren't sure where they'd like to do battle, they point their browsers to www.paintballpromos.com. There they'll find packages for nearby paintball fields, so they don't have to litter their own backyards with empty oil barrels and fill tiny water balloons with tempera paint. Packages usually include the rental of a marker and mask; paintballs and air fills are an extra charge at the field.

At Hydro Flight Extreme Water Sports, pilots surge into the air on the wings of high-pressure funnels of water. The dynamic, water-based jetpack uses focused streams of seawater to break the bonds of gravity and lift riders into the air. Pilots direct their own pace and direction, with an instructor accompanying them below to lend assistance or fend off any krakens that want to give you a high-five.

The water's calm. Almost too calm. Nearly imperceptible ripples begin to form, soon evolving into bubbles reminiscent of a hair-raising monster movie. A figure erupts upwards, the water peeling away in sheets to reveal not a creature of the deep, but a person with their feet strapped into a strange device. The machine, called a Flyboard, projects two jets of water out from right beneath the rider's feet, causing her to soar through the air. This propulsion lends itself to acrobatics, helping riders perform tricks such as spins, flips, and dolphin-like dives from the air to the water and back again.

The owners of Jump Right In Flyboarding say such tricks are not hard to master. They started their company to give everyone a taste of this hard-to-describe, impossible-to-imitate water sport, and today they specialize in the sales, service, instruction and rentals of FlyBoards. With locations in Sebastian, Cocoa Beach, and Key Largo, they are some of the coast's most experienced operators.

The entire sky along Florida's Space Coast is like one giant movie screen, regularly showing the story of rockets—some manned, some unmanned, others guided entirely by dreams. They launch gracefully towards the heavens, where they break through Earth's atmosphere and float out beyond it. It's a mesmerizing display, one that serves as the focal point for Space Coast River Tours's Rocket Tour. The Blue Dolphin, the company's 44-foot USCG-certified pontoon river boat, serves as the tour's mode of transportation. Its retractable roof pulls back to reveal unobstructed views of the sky above for all of its 49 passengers.

Captains Mark and Michele Anderson, who are both certified by the U.S. Coast Guard, have plenty to explore even when rockets aren't taking flight. Specialty tours are available at an additional cost. During the holidays, they show passengers the lights and decorations along residential canals in Sykes Creek, handing out some egg nog or hot cocoa to complete the experience. The Banana River Lagoon Tour, meanwhile, remains a daily feature. For two hours, the boat tours the Banana River and floats into the habitats of the area's many birds, dolphins, manatees, and gators.
