  • By Sarah Sekula Forever Florida, south of Orlando, is 4,700 acres of fun. Not only is it a quiet respite for nature-lovers, it is also a magnet for thrill seekers. Either way, you will likely enjoy every minute of it. It's an outdoor adventure -- among the treetops near Orlando. First, hop into the safari buggy, a swamp mobile made of recycled car parts. To one side you'll spot the largest herd of Cracker Cattle in the state of Florida, a critically endangered breed that the Forever Florida team is committed to protecting. On the other side: bromeliads above and neon-green duckweed crowd the ponds below. It's Old Florida at its best. Wide-open spaces abound, and you will easily slip into relaxation mode. After the nature ride, it's time to gear up and climb the tower to the first "zip" at Florida EcoSafaris.   Minutes later you're hurling yourself off the launch pad and soaking up the scenery. The surrounding lush and rugged landscape is a treat. Scan the treetops for bald eagles; look around on the ground for deer. There are alligators, wild turkeys are roaming around and even peacocks. It's truly the wild side of Florida that you don't see every day. You are inside of a wildlife conservation haven, after all. This perfectly preserved parcel of land actually includes nine beautiful ecosystems. Forever Florida has a significant focus on minimal disruption to the environment, and the whole zipline system was built and is maintained with that focus in mind. Not coincidentally, some of the(delete first some of the) some of the profits from Florida EcoSafaris' offerings are donated to the conservation effort. The owners, Dr. William and Margaret Broussard, lost their son to Hodgkin's disease nearly 20 years ago. The last wish of the 29-year-old, who dearly loved wildlife and the environment, was that they protect the surrounding ecosystems. In turn, the couple slowly amassed the Forever Florida property, parcel by parcel. As you go through the series of ziplines, you become more and more comfortable with it. In fact, even if you're afraid of heights, you can still give it a go. They've seen all types try it, from 8-year-olds to grandmothers. Once you're back on the ground, you'll be walking along the Florida Trail, one of eight national historic pathways running from Miami to Pensacola. If zip lining isn't your cup of tea, never fear, there's plenty to keep you busy. Consider taking a horseback ride that takes you through a creek and along a historic trail, enjoying a home-cooked meal at the visitor center or bringing a tent and setting up camp. It's the perfect getaway, whether you're after adrenaline or just seeking a heavy dose of R&R.

    Outdoor Orlando: Ziplining Among the Treetops at Forever Florida
  • The amazing acrobatic displays and colorful characters that have been dazzling guests at Cirque du Soleil's La Nouba since 1998, just got a bit more sensational. Two new acts have been added to the 90-minute show at Disney Springs giving families seeking fun nightlife and entertainment in Orlando an even bigger reason to ooh and aah in wonder and delight. The new acts, a Russian Aerial Bamboo performance and a trio of freestyle break dancers, join other recent additions that have been made in an effort to refresh the show while maintaining its original charm. And for this, the original choreographer, music composer and lighting designer returned to seamlessly integrate the new performances. For the first time in the United States, Russian couple Alexander and Ekaterina Abramov performs their art form originating in China. Aerial Bamboo involves a pole-shaped apparatus, originally made of bamboo, suspended from the ceiling, with attached loops used for a variety of tricks and stunts - requiring unprecedented amounts of trust from the married duo. The B-Boy trio brings a new level of physically demanding form of dance for the first time to any Cirque du Soliel stage. The break dancers Josh Ortiz ("Incredible Josh"), Jean Carlos Lloret ("Bebo") and Dmytro Li ("Flying Buddha") execute acrobatic tricks and moves, including flips and spins, to music with their own individual styles. For early arrivers, La Nouba's preshow has also been recently refreshed. In 2014 a new hilarious clown duo joined the show and they're both named, Pablo. The clown team brings all new laughs and comedy routines beginning 15 minutes before the regular show start time. Orlando Tickets & Discounts Visit Orlando is an official seller of La Nouba.

    Top 10 Ways to Bring on Spring in Orlando
  • LEGO fans everywhere who are anticipating the release of the The LEGO Movie Sequel can breathe a sigh of relief. LEGOLAND Florida has premiered a "mini-figure" sequel called THE LEGO Movie 4D A New Adventure during a recent red carpet event, complete with blasts of confetti and TV celebs. The  theatrical attraction adds more kid-friendly things to do at Orlando's area theme parks. The 12-and-a-half-minute experience reunites Emmet and friends in an all-new short story that combines 3D animation with interactive "4D" effects including wind, water and fog. In addition, a fun interactive game gets the audience screaming and pointing at the large screen during a key point in the storyline. Some of the original cast lends their voice to the movie, but Will Ferrell's absence is called out humorously during the movie, noting the price tag being too high for his return. A new evil mastermind, "Risky Business" is introduced in this movie and played by comedian actor, Patton Oswalt. You also won't hear the earworm song, "Everything is Awesome" from the original movie, but the new 4D version does a playful take on the catchy tune made popular in blockbuster. TV stars (Aubrey Anderson-Emmos, of ABC TV's Modern Family, Joey Bragg of Disney Channel's Liv and Maddie, Isabella Moner, of Nickelodeon's 100 Things to Do Before High School) along with Youtubers (The Eh Bee Family and Family Fun Pack) attended the event and walked the red carpet after the premiere. Our young Visit Orlando reporter was on hand to get their reactions. The biggest reactions came during the participation part of the movie where the audience started screaming and pointing at the large screen and "helped" Wyldstyle find the right shaped LEGO to overcome a problem. On Saturday and Sundays in February, guests can be their own master builders during the new LEGO Movie 4D Weekends featuring special LEGO building opportunities, meet-and-greets with the movie characters and a Brick-tastic Fireworks Finale.
