Road trips should always include speed and go-karts. Luckily, there is a hidden adventure park in Florida's east coast where you can skip the lines faster than Disney World. If you and your bff's are looking for fun things to do in Panama City Beach, Swampy Jack's Wongo Adventure is a hybrid amusement park full of family-friendly entertainment. 

The park offers free admission and all attractions are priced per ride. Rides start at $5 per person which you can charge on your WONGO card.

Currently, the park is offering the newest and most unique go-kart experience. Imagine a Mario-Kart video game with an electric go-kart. It turns into an interactive experience featuring the best technology in go-karts.

Not only will you feel like you are in a real-life Mario-Kart game but also how it is to compete with other people. The Marrakesh Road Rally combines the technical go-kart track with the technology of an interactive game to bring an out-of-the-box adventure.

The swamp-inspired themed-park features a 'Swamp Ape' instead of a snowman, which characterizes life in the Everglades. 

Also, you can experience surreal bumper cars and an aerial attraction where you get the ultimate view from the top. According to Travel Pulse, the amusement park is planning expansion over the next seven years. 

This can be a great travel alternative for those wanting to skip the hefty lines at Universal Studios or Disney parks. Panama City Beach is a great beach town featuring clear beaches, outstanding cuisine and a Margaritaville with the best margaritas for your 5 o'clock happy hour.
