Top 5 Places to Experience Kissimmee by Air, Land, and Water

Kissimmee, Florida has so many outdoor adventures that you can explore by air, land, or water. At some spots, you can even do all three! Look at all these amazing activities just waiting for you and your entire family during your next visit to sunny Kissimmee.

Air

Zip Lining

The Alligator Capital of the World known as Gatorland opened in 1949 as Central Florida’s first attraction. This spot truly lives up to its name and is the perfect place to learn about Florida’s native creatures. Here, you can explore Kissimmee by air, land, and even water! First, strap in for the Screamin’ Gator zip line experience where you’ll soar 1,200 feet over an alligator breeding marsh. Then, walk around the park where you can watch special alligator and crocodile shows, participate in animal encounters, and spot some unique wild animals that call Florida home. And finally, a day at Gatorland isn’t complete until you’ve gone on the Stompin’ Gator Off-Road Adventure where you’ll ride in a monster-style, off-road vehicle over hills, across giant mud puddles, and even splashing through a pond filled with alligators. But don’t worry, you’ll sit 12 feet above the water!

Hot Air Balloon Ride

Have you ever seen the beautiful landscape of natural Florida? Well you have a chance to see these breathtaking views from above on a hot air balloon ride with Bob’s Balloon Rides. Wake up early for a gorgeous sunrise and see for yourself the beauty of nature below. It’s the ideal way to get a full glimpse of Kissimmee waterways, nearby attractions, and even Walt Disney World Resort landmarks.

Hang Gliding (Wallaby Ranch)

Land

ATV

Become one with nature and truly live out your dreams of roaming Central Florida land freely. At Revolution Adventures, the sky’s the limit with exploring 230 acres of countryside. You can even choose from ATVs, side by sides, or their unique Mucky Duck – an eight-wheeled amphibious vehicle that’ll take you through water and on land! If that’s not enough, they also have clay shooting, archery, and archery tag available during your visit.

Other activities:
Biking (Celebration Town Center)
Horseback riding (Lazy H Ranch)

Water 

Kayaking

You won’t believe this beautiful spot in Kissimmee exists just right off US 192, but The Paddling Center at Shingle Creek has a beautiful, serene kayaking experience just for you. Whether you decide to brave the waters yourself in a rented kayak, canoe, or paddleboard or decide to take a guided tour of the Cypress Forest, Shingle Creek has something for everyone and their comfort level. 

Airboat Riding

Airboat rides are a true rite of passage when you’re here in Central Florida. With the wind in your hair and the nature of the Headwaters of the Everglades all around you, this experience is unlike any other. At Boggy Creek Airboat Adventures, enjoy the tranquility of gliding over water and the thrills of spotting your first alligator just feet away!
