It’s the rainy season here in Central Florida, and sometimes it feels like it just never ends. You’re afraid to make plans because you don’t know whether a storm will ruin them. Well, plan FOR a storm when you’re figuring out an activity to do. Toyota of Clermont has picked some of our favorite activities to do in the rain. Just because the weather may be gloomy, that doesn’t mean you have to be!
Don’t let rain ruin your outdoors fun
Hit the theme parks
Just because it’s raining, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy one or Orlando’s many theme parks. You might not be able to take advantage of certain rides because of lightning, but there are plenty of other rides and activities left over! Disney’s Magic Kingdom even has a special parade titled the “Rainy Day Character Cavalcade” for those who brave the rain.
The best part about going to the parks when it rains? It’s less crowded! And maybe you can convince your family to finally wear those matching ponchos for a picture.
Stay indoors in Orlando
Try an escape game
If you’re one who enjoys curling up with a book and a cup of tea when it’s raining outside, this might be the change of pace for you. Escape games are a pretty recent trend in the Orlando area, and it seems like they might be here to stay! You’ll join a team or have one of your own to figure out puzzles and challenges to get out of themed rooms. This is the perfect way to keep your mind active.
Some companies that offer escape rooms in Orlando include:
- America’s Escape Game
- Orlando Escape Game
- BreakOut Escape Rooms
- And more!
If you don’t want the rain to ruin your athletic lifestyle, there are more options than just going to the gym. You don’t have to play sports outside all the time. Here are some locations in Orlando that cater to your sporty way of life:
- I – Drive NASCAR
If you love beating your family and friends in Mario Kart, how about trying the real thing? While you may not get banana peels or blue shells here, I-Drive NASCAR is the place to go if you have the need for speed. This indoor kart racing hub uses electric karts on a fun track that you will surely enjoy. After you’re done with the race, you can relax and grab something to eat or play a variety of arcade games.
- Indoor trampoline arenas
What can be more fun than bouncing around a series of floor to wall trampolines? Adding dodgeballs into the mix! Whether you’re looking for a fun way to burn calories or a way to burn off your children’s energy, check out Orlando’s trampoline arenas. These include:
- Outer Limitz
Toyota of Clermont hopes that whether the weekend is bright or gloomy, you’ll have a great time!
