Orlando is most well known for its theme parks - Disney and Universal are the biggest names to offer their thrills and chills in the area; however, Orlando is slated to get a new gigantic theme park this season - and it is even set to include the longest go-kart track in all of Florida.
Dezerland Park in Miami is making moves to Orlando. Dezerland Action Park will be creating its new home at the Former Artegon Marketplace and has plans to be bigger and better than they ever were in Miami. What started as a classic car gallery in Miami with the largest collection of Batmobiles, 007 Hollywood James Bond cars, military vehicles, and vintage classics will be exploding into an entertainment mecca in the Orlando area.
Their Orlando location is expected to be the largest indoor entertainment, event, and museum complex in Florida with 800,000 square feet of entertainment all in one place. According to their website, Dezerland Action Park will include the largest private collection of unique collectors vehicles, a retro pinball machine palace an arcade game room, bumper cars, various virtual reality rooms and experiences, trampolines, a bowling alley, laser tag, Florida's longest straightaway go-kart track, and much much more.
This multi-million dollar project sounds like it's shaping up to be the best 1 stop shop for all things entertainment, and we're excited to learn about what more is in store for the location that has been kept under wraps.
The project was originally set for an opening in April but, according to Orlando Weekly, production was halted back in February due to changes with overall design and amenities that require additional permits to construct, which has delayed the original grand opening date. Their website and Facebook pages currently still say they anticipate the opening in Spring 2019, and promise to release more information as the new opening date gets closer.
The Dezerland Action Park will be located at 5250 International Drive, Orlando, FL 32819. If you need to get your entertainment fix now, their Miami location is located at 14401 NE 19th Ave, North Miami, FL 33181 and is open 2 pm - 9 pm Monday through Thursday, staying open until 11 pm on Fridays. Their weekend hours are 10 am - 11 pm on Saturdays and 10 am - 9 pm on Sundays.
