Fantasy Surf Kissimmee, Florida – Indoor Surfing on the Ultimate Wave

Fantasy Surf in Kissimmee, Florida is an adrenaline filled water ride and what a change from the theme parks? This week I went over to Fantasy Surf in Kissimmee  for some aquatic adventure fun and I really enjoyed it! Fantasy Surf hosts a great indoor water sport activity termed flowriding – fun for all ages you can slide, ride and surf the ultimate waves –  and its a safe and controlled environment so good for those new to surfing and want to try it out – but also great for practising tricks if you’re an accomplished surfer.

The impressive indoor FlowRider surf system is a real experience – like surfing, snowboarding and skateboarding rolled into one – set up on an artificial beach setting, the machine size is 32 ft wide and 49 ft in length and can allows 25-30 riders each hour. There are cushioned surfaces all around for safety and for those in your group opting out it’s still a lot of fun watching others develop their new or expert surfing skills!

Whilst you’re there you can visit ‘The Lull’ cafe for casual dining and shop for surf-style retail at the ‘Offshore’ store.

Fantasy Surf offers 30 minute sessions on the FlowRider waves for adults and children – minimum height requirements are 42″ – for bodyboard, 52″ for Flowboard. Its $25 for one adult session and $20 for one child session – but there are multiple session savings so check out Fantasy Surf – Ticket Prices for more details.

You’ll find Fantasy Surf located off Poinciana Boulevard between US HWY 192 and State HWY 535, open 7 days a week – Venue and cafe open from 7:30am and FlowRider from 9am – all closing 10pm

As I went to the Car Masters at Downtown Disney recently and really enjoyed it, it made me think of all the great classic show cars at Old Town attraction in Kissimmee – a down-to-earth, 1950s nostalgic entertainment area which you could slot into your vacation in Orlando.  As well as shopping, dining and entertainment there’s car related events every week on a Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. I enjoy the Saturday Night Cruise its one of the largest weekly car events in the world with over 300 classic cars all 1974 and older on display.
