A day at an amusement park gives children a memory of pure joy that will sustain them through adulthood's dreary parade of office meetings, grocery-store riots, and haunted amusement parks. Indulge children both inner and outer with today's Groupon: for $17, you get a super-saver all-you-can-ride wristband for one day of unlimited access to all rides plus a one-time tour through the new AMPventure Experience adventure course at Old Town in Kissimmee (up to a $34.95 value). Today's Groupon does not include access to the go-karts, laser tag, or bumper cars.
Old Town outfits its amusement park with a retro vibe and 14 rides and roller coasters for burning off the human body's excess screams of delight. The brand-new Pepsi-sponsored AMPventure Experience boosts thrills with an adventure course encompassing a four-story ropes challenge, zipline, 35-foot climbing wall, and everything else one needs to train for a prison break. Adrenaline junkies can brave the 80-degree banks and 1,437 feet of serpentine steel track of the Windstorm roller coaster, or inch into the sky on the Super Shot before suddenly dropping into free fall from 150 feet. Those seeking more relaxed thrills can take a spin on the old-fashioned merry-go-round, the naturally decaffeinated teacup ride, or the Wacky Worm kiddie coaster. To take a break from the laws of physics, soak in a leisurely Godzilla’s-eye view of Orlando from the Century Ferris wheel, or test the limitations of gravity on the trampolines.
Old Town is firmly committed to its nostalgia-drenched retro style, with a calendar full of classic-car cruises every Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday; live music on Friday and Saturday nights; and flag-sewing circle meetings on Monday. However, Old Town's restaurants range far beyond the typical theme-park grub, including gourmet Chinese, flavored popcorn, Big Kahunas burgers, and more.
Though Old Town sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available. Rides are sometimes closed due to weather or regularly scheduled maintenance.
Get transported through time during a visit to Old Town in Kissimmee. Have a relaxing stroll through a newly renovated 18-acre walking district and discover over 60 unique shops and restaurants. Weekly entertainment and car shows and cruises, family friendly attractions and rides, including an 84-foot Ferris Wheel, welcomes a piece of Florida history. Come and enjoy the simple pleasures of classic American fun.
