Things to Do in Orlando With Teenagers
Orlando is packed with hundreds of tourist options for families and teenagers. While the city's theme parks are by far the most visited attractions, there are plenty of other options for teens and their families. Take some time to enjoy all that Orlando has to offer.

Wallaby Ranch Hang Gliding Flight Park

Wallaby Ranch--located on the border of Orlando--is the largest hang gliding flight park in the world. Teenagers and their families have the chance to go through an instructional training program before heading into the air. Adventists can choose between tandem flights or single flights; both flight choices last between fifteen and twenty minutes once the hang glider is in the air. Aerotowing is a system where hang gliders are towed by a towplane; it's also available at Wallaby Ranch.

Richard Petty Driving Experience

At the Richard Petty Driving Experience, teenagers fourteen and up have the opportunity to experience the ride-along experience program. During the ride along experience, teens ride three-lap qualifying runs at up to 165 miles per hour in a two seat official NASCAR-style stock car. Older teens can experience a more hands-on driving experience at the Richard Petty Driving Experience. The driving experience consists of taking the wheel and calling the shots. After an orientation video, on-track instruction, mechanical and safety instruction and a driver's meeting, driver's hit the tracks for a high speed driving adventure. Afterwards, a closing ceremony is held to award driver's with a graduation certificate and a detailed lap-time sheet. Only people over 18 with a valid driver's license are allowed to participate in the solo driving experience.

There are also several paved bike trails, with varying levels of length and difficulty.
