Extreme Florida Vacations Are Just A Click Away

Most Florida tourists and snow-birds are satisfied with a trip to Disney World and a good beach, but thousands of others take advantage of Florida’s climate and terrain to engage in extreme sports and unusual adventures.  Floridians, of course, get these opportunities every month of the year.

Just minutes from Walt Disney World you and your family can take a lesson in the flying trapeze, German wheel, or trampoline at Orlando circus schools like Circus Arts or the Orlando Circus School.

If that is too tame for you, may I suggest the Covert  Ops School in the Miami area where you will learn from top instructors counter-terror warfare tactics.  These include using an assault rifle and mastering Israeli Krav Maga martial  arts.

If you want to spend some time on the water (or over it), you can take lessons in flyboarding, a popular sport where you stand on a board with a long hose connected to a watercraft and are jet packed 15 meters into the air.

Its You Flying On Your Vacation

You can take lessons on flyboarding all over Florida: Sofloboarding

in West Palm Beach or Flyboards Orlando or Flyboarding Sarasota.

If water is not your thing – you can take to the air flying a combat plane at Warbird Adventure at Kissimmee Gateway Airport or learn to do some recreational aerobatics at Wing over Aerobatics in Leesburg to the Wrong Brothers Flight Training in Pensacola.

You might wish to get your urge for speed closer to earth so a good choice might be learning to drive an offshore speedboat going across Sarasota Bay at speeds that will impress your friends.  Visit International Performance

Offshore Speedboating

I haven’t even mentioned learning to drive an airboat in the Everglades or  that Spy Camp outside Gainesville with the Lamborghini, or space flight training over at the Clearwater-St Pete Airport.  I guess I will have to do another extreme sports list in the near future.
