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.

Or emulate Icarus at a safe distance from the sun: Thirty miles outside Orlando, Wallaby Ranch (800-925-5229), in Davenport, boasts the world's first full-time aerotow hang-gliding park (pictured). Owner Malcolm Jones, a former real estate developer, has launched over 38,000 flights since 1991 without a scratch.
