  • What an Amazing Place to visit. They have the best attractions around Orlando. In our opinion. Roller Coasters, Swings, Go Carts, haunted house's, water rides,and the list goes on. Many Restaurants, and Candy factories, Live Entertainment, Several Shows throughout the Day and that's just the beginning. One of our favorite places was the Three Story Hard Rock Cafe. If ever giving the. Chance to visit universal Studios...Go for it...
