    Orlandos Coolste Attraktionen Gegen Heisses Wetter

    ORLANDO, Florida - Der heiße Sommer ist die perfekte Jahreszeit für einen Besuch in Orlandos coolsten Attraktionen. Von den ungewöhnlichen Eissorten in Harry Potters Winkelgasse (Diagon Alley) über die unverfrorene Parade aus dem Film Die Eiskönigin (Frozen) bis hin zu einer Fahrt ins kühle Nass mit einer der brandneuen Wasserrutschen bietet Orlando die kältesten und abgefahrensten Abkühlungen unter der Sonne Floridas.


    Die besten Abkühlungen im Universal Orlando Resort gehören zu den bestgehüteten Geheimnissen. Im kalten Steingemäuer von Schloss Hogwarts zaubert Ron für die Besucher Schnee, bevor sie in die Achterbahn Forbidden Journey in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter einsteigen. Danach können sie sich im brandneuen Parkbereich The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley in Florean Fortescue's Ice-Cream Parlour ungewöhnliche Eissorten wie Earl Grey Tee & Lavendel, Schokoladenchili oder Butterbier auf der Zunge zergehen lassen.

    An einem heißen Tag in SeaWorld Orlando haben Besucher die Wahl zwischen zwei einzigartigen Erfrischungsmöglichkeiten. Im Themenbereich The Wild Arctic betreten sie ein Wunderland aus Eis, in dem arktische Tiere wie Belugawale, Eisbären und gewaltige Walrösser leben. In SeaWorlds neuester Attraktion Antarctica: Im Reich der Pinguine gehen Gäste auf Abenteuerreise durch die Antarktis, wo sie mehr als 200 Pinguinen begegnen.

    Der Film Die Eiskönigin hält das Walt Disney World Resort derzeit im eisigen Griff. Besucher können ihr persönliches Treffen mit den Hauptdarstellerinnen Anna und Elsa auf einem Foto für die Ewigkeit einfrieren oder die beiden im Magic Kingdom bei der Festival of Fantasy Parade heiß umjubeln. In Disney's Hollywood Studios zieht unterdessen die Parade Anna and Elsa's Royal Welcome Procession durch die Straßen. Beim Musik-Event First Time in Forever: A "Frozen" Sing-Along Celebration singen Darsteller und Publikum gemeinsam die größten Hits aus dem Film. Zum Abschluss malt ein Feuerwerk die glitzernde Pracht der Eiskönigin an den Abendhimmel. Das frostige Sommer-Filmspektakel endet am 1. September.

    Das DUPLO Valley im LEGOLAND Florida ist der perfekte Abkühlspaß für Kleinkinder. Zum neuesten Parkbereich gehören neben einem Zug und einer Fahrt mit dem Mini-Traktor auch ein Splash & Play Bereich, wo die Kleinsten ausgelassen plantschen können. Ein klimatisierter Spielplatz in der DUPLO Farm sorgt auch beim hitzigsten Spiel für einen kühlen Kopf.


    Aquatica, SeaWorld's Waterpark, bietet eine neue Art der Erfrischung an. Ihu's Breakaway Falls ist die höchste und steilste Rutsch-Attraktion in Orlando und weltweit die einzige Hochgeschwindigkeitsrutsche, die Gäste mit Blickkontakt zueinander aus drei durchsichtigen Startboxen auf die Bahnen schießt. Auch für weniger Unverfrorene ist Abkühlung garantiert. Der Wasserspielplatz Walkabout Water bietet Kindern auf rund 1.400 Quadratmetern Wasserspaß in einer Wasserburg, und in den Stromschnellen des Wildwasserabenteuers Roa's Rapids kann sich die ganze Familie durch tropische Landschaften treiben lassen.

    Ganz gleich ob Gäste auf Hochgeschwindigkeitsabenteuer abfahren oder sich lieber gemütlich im Lazy River treiben lassen, der Wasserpark Wet ‘n Wild hat der Hitze auf der ganzen Linie den Kampf angesagt. Die neue Turbo-Attraktion Aqua Drag Racer verspricht einen Adrenalin-Kick für die ganze Familie. Hier können Besucher bäuchlings bei einem spannenden Rennen auf einer 107 Meter langen, in sich verschlungenen vierspurigen Wasserrutsche gegeneinander antreten.

    Der Wasserpark Disney's Blizzard Beach erinnert an eine winterliche Schneelandschaft in den Alpen und lässt Besucher schon beim Anblick vor Kälte und Staunen erstarren. In Badekleidung fahren Gäste mit dem Skilift auf den Gletscher, um eine der höchsten und schnellsten Wasserrutschen der Welt hinunter zu sausen. Es gibt aber auch entspannende Attraktionen wie einen gemäßigten Flusslauf und einen weißen Sandstrand zum Sonnenbaden.

    In den State Parks von Zentralflorida liegen mehrere natürliche Quellen, die für Badegäste zugänglich sind. Das klare blaue Wasser hat ganzjährig Temperaturen um 23 Grad. Die meisten Quellgewässer eignen sich zum Schwimmen, Schnorcheln und Tubing, sind aber von ihrer Umgebung her sehr unterschiedlich. Wekiwa Springs, Rock Springs und Kelley Springs zählen zu den beliebtesten Naturquellen in Zentralflorida.


    Die IceBar Orlando besteht aus fast 50 Tonnen Eis und ist damit die größte dauerhafte Eisbar der Welt. Stimmungsvolle Beleuchtung, exquisite Eisskulpturen, angesagte Musik und Temperaturen um minus 5 Grad sorgen in den heißen Nächten Floridas für cooles Ambiente.

    Minus5 steht für eine neue Generation von Eisbars. Wände, Theke und Cocktailgläser sind aus Eis, so dass Gäste die zur Verfügung gestellten weißen Pelzmäntel auch im Sommer gern annehmen. Mehrere Räume sind nach unterschiedlichen Themen gestaltet, wie etwa ein Florida-Raum mit Palmen oder ein Strandbereich mit Muscheln aus Eis.

    A campanha, em parceria com SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment, Universal Orlando Resort, Walt Disney World Resort e Brand USA, inclui publicidade em trade e consumer, promoções, parcerias e iniciativas com operadores de turismo para aproveitar ao máximo o momento positivo e crescente de visitação e interesse em viagens para Orlando. O Visit Orlando também ampliou sua presença em mídias sociais no Brasil com mais postagens em português no Facebook.

    Com o dobro do investimento feito em 2013, a campanha de marketing integrada do Visit Orlando segue até dezembro. A campanha "Orlando É Só Alegria" 2014 tem um layout mais dinâmico, além de usar imagens de lançamentos dos parques e todas as novidades da cidade para este ano.

    "O Visit Orlando e seus parceiros reconhecem a importância do mercado brasileiro e a dedicação de operadores e agentes brasileiros para promover a cidade. É por isso que estamos cada vez mais investindo na campanha e estamos mais confiantes que esse esforço terá um impacto positivo no turismo brasileiro para Orlando”, disse Danielle Courtenay, diretora de marketing da associação.

    Orlando recebeu 59 milhões de visitantes em 2013, estabelecendo um novo recorde para os destinos turísticos americanos. O número recorde representa um aumento de 3% sobre o marco anterior, registrado em 2012.
