Whether you want a mild or wild spring break, Orlando has lots to offer. New theme park attractions and food festivals mean excitement is just around the corner. As you plan your Orlando spring break adventures, here are the top 10 things to do during spring break.

10. Theme Park Thrills

This spring break, you can be one of the first to ride Ice Breaker, the soon-to-be newest roller coaster at SeaWorld Orlando. Perfect for thrill seekers, this steel coaster features a 93-foot-tall spike that will have you curving at a 100-degree angle! Ice Breaker will open in February 2022. (Here’s a cool unofficial recreation.)

Continue exploring newly unveiled rides at Universal’s Islands of Adventure with VelociCoaster where you become a part of the pack and run through the jungle with other Velociraptors. There’s never a dull moment on this wild roller coaster!

If you are looking for something a little more chill instead of a thrill, try out the new Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure ride at Disney World’s EPCOT. Shrink down to the size of a rat and follow Chef Remy along on an exciting 4D adventure.

9. Shop ‘Til You Drop

If shopping sounds like your ideal spring break vacation, then plan to spend some time at Disney Springs. Here you’ll find the perfect gift and souvenirs.

In addition to shopping, Disney Springs provides live entertainment every evening and fun dining options. Consider Pizza Ponte where you can enjoy Sicilian-style pizza or The Edison, a classy eatery with upscale cuisine.

If you’re looking for more name brands, visit the Mall at Millenia. From GameStop to Gucci, this mall has all your shopping needs. If you want an outdoor mall shopping experience, try Orlando Outlet Marketplace. This outdoor mall is located only 5 minutes away from Rosen Inn.

8. Play Like the Pros

Practice your golf swing at our 18-hole Shingle Creek Golf Club, a championship golf course located at Rosen Shingle Creek. This course is the work of the Arnold Palmer Design Company. Book that tee time now before the other golfers on spring break get to it first.

After playing your own round, cheer on some of the world’s best golfers at the Arnold Palmer Invitational just minutes away.

Now it’s time to put another type of driving skill to the test at Andretti Indoor Karting and Games. A multilevel indoor track and powerful SODI RTX karts give you an authentic race experience you won’t find anywhere else.

7. Spring Break Classic: Relax at the Beach

One of the top places to visit during spring break is the beach. Sunbathers and surfers alike head out to the shore to soak up some sun during their vacation. Lucky for you, Florida has plenty of beaches.

The closest beach to Orlando is Cocoa Beach. Learn to surf at Cocoa Beach Surf School, then practice your skills on the water. You’ll be a pro in no time.

Another option on the other side of Florida is Clearwater Beach. As the name boasts, this beach has beautiful, clear water and white, sandy beaches. Pull up a chair or lay out a towel to enjoy this gorgeous beach.

6. Explore I-Drive Favorites

Still looking for thrills? Try indoor skydiving at iFLY. An indoor wind tunnel lets you experience skydiving in a safe, controlled environment.

After all that excitement, head next door to cool off at ICEBAR Orlando. Staff will provide you with a thermal coat and gloves, which you’ll need since everything in here is made of ice, even the glasses. Next, head to the Fire Lounge to warm up with some snacks and drinks. This is truly an experience you won’t forget.

Another International Drive favorite is the phenomenon of escape rooms. This is the perfect opportunity to test your mental fortitude.

There are many rooms to visit with different themes and skills of difficulty. If you are celebrating spring break with family or a group of friends, this is an especially great activity where you can have fun and find out how well you work together under pressure!
