While I was in Florida for the #BloggersGoGlobal event, I felt like I did things in Florida that touristy people usually don’t do. Because lets be really honest here — usually when people go to Florida, they’re taking the family to Disney. We are guilty of that, twice actually! Not that Disney is a bad thing because we absolutely LOVE Disney.
One of the places we visited was Old Town in Kissimmee. Old Town offers places to eat, places to shop and places to scream (okay, not really but some of the rides will make you scream). We rode the ferris wheel, a few us did the ziplining course and then a couple of us, during a phase of mental incapacity, rode the Sling Shot.
Oh. My. Goodness. That was an experience and we have it all on camera. Here is Louise from MomStart and I on the Sling Shot.
There really is a variety of things to do in Old Town. We didn’t get the chance to experience everything but what we did do was so incredibly fun and
if when we go back to Florida, I will definitely be taking the kiddos.

Holy moley – I didn’t know this even existed (and I’m not far from there).
ha ha! I loved that video, I was laughing with you. I dunno if I’d have the guts to do it!!

I LOVE Old Towne! I especially love if I happen to be there when there is a classic car show!
I can hardly go on rides (such a pansy, lol), but that looks like good ‘ol fun! 🙂
Jennifer Mercurio says
I cannot believe you went on it! I have NEVER been brave enough
Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell says
Awesome! I would have done it too! Once.
I love crazy rides like that, it looks amazing…I am sooooo jealous!!
Maureen @ Wisconsin Mommy says
I think I would have thrown up (or maybe passed out?). You are a brave lady!
Funny video! There is this ride local to me called “The Screamer”, which you are not allowed to scream on because it is near a neighborhood and they don’t want to make the people mad. I thought it was a blast, even though I am afraid of heights.
I would have totally went on this too!

You will never catch me on that thing! lol
OMG that looks awesome!
That video of you two is awesome! lol
I lived in FL for ten years, and had never heard of this place. Sounds like I missed some fun.
That looks like SO much fun!
I’m a big ol’ chicken. 🙂

OMG that looks fun! BUT I could never ever do it!!

Hahaha you guys are so incredibly cute! Louise looks so calm and Zen. I feel queasy just looking at how high you were, LOL!! Old Town looks like a fun place, I’d enjoy something mild like the Ferris Wheel.
