* Mary, Queen of the Universe Shrine
* Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament, in Kissimmee. Six brave knights on horseback compete in tournament games, jousting, and sword fighting while guests dine on a medieval-style banquet.
* The Ripley's Believe It or Not! Orlando Odditorium is located in a building artfully constructed to appear as if it were collapsing to one side, which may be a sly reference to central Florida's infamous sinkholes. Visitors can explore bizarre artifacts, strange collections, weird art/hobbies and interactive exhibits in sixteen odd galleries. It is one of 27 Ripley museums in ten countries.
* Wonder Works A funhouse located on International Drive. Can be easily identified as an upside down white building.
* Wet 'n Wild - Orlando A large waterpark located just minutes from Universal Studios on International Drive
