Orlando is known as Theme Park Capital of the World, and it’s not just for kids. There are plenty of theme parks where the adults can have just as much fun as the younger generation. Some even offer activities just for adults.
Fun for Adults at Epcot
Epcot is geared toward adults with its cultural and scientific themes.

Epcot even has a Drinking Around the World Showcase where adults can sample a tasty libation from each country. There are also kiosks through the park serving up a variety of craft beers. At the La Cava Del Tequila, adults can quench their thirst with a delicious avocado Margarita or a blood orange Margarita.
Adrenaline Thrills at SeaWorld

The Kraken is a beastly roller coaster like no other. This coaster rises high, drops fast, and spirals. It’s sure to deliver both thrills and terror. The Journey to Atlantis is a hybrid ride with a roller coaster and flume. Head down a thrilling, watery flume and discover dark passages through the sunken city of Atlantis.
