Sky-Venture Orlando
Thrill junkies who have tired of roller coasters might consider these safe but scary alternatives: Sky-Venture Orlando (407-903-1150) offers skydiving in its 56-foot, 150-mile-an-hour wind tunnel. Reserve in advance to avoid the mad spring-break rush.

Owner Malcolm Jones, a former real estate developer, has launched over 38,000 flights since 1991 without a scratch.
