Mako Ride Highlight and Review

Mako’s…fast, no really fast, no SUPER FAST!

Smooth with more airtime than you can handle in one coaster. If it’s anything like the now famous (or infamous) shark, the Mako, then we need to stay out of the water.

30 Ways to Beat the Florida Theme Park Heat

Summertime in Florida is like no other state, especially for theme park goers. If you’re a resident of an area that experiences all four seasons with mild summers, then you will definitely be taken aback by the hot, humid, indescribable weather that Florida is known for.

Apple Ice Wine Epcot

HIPSTER Drink of the Week: Neige Ice Wine

Epcot’s Trading Post Refreshments is on the path to becoming my new favorite hangout spot in the park, especially in the cooler months. This shop is for the young at heart serving more than just Canadian sweet treats. You can now indulge yourself in Ice Wine and different beers from Canada.

Orlando Strong

Hurt, sadness, and confusion are just a few words describing what so many people are feeling. Other local theme park enthusiasts and I were all looking forward to a summer of fun-filled excitement with the unveiling of new attractions; however, the harsh reality of EVIL hit our home town in such a short period of time that has left us paralyzed.

Dealing with that much death and heartache within the last 5 days is something a community should never have to go through.  Christina Grimmie, the Pulse victims, and baby Lane Graves have our hearts bleeding tears for the unexpected sorrow the friends and families are facing right now.

How do we handle this?

How do we stay strong when the pain is so cripplingly toxic?

How do we become the magical city again?

…I don’t have the answers, but I wish I did.

I wish that I was able to do something to numb the pain and bring peace and comfort to everyone affected by such tremendous loss. Loss of loved-ones, loss of innocence, loss of security, and loss of faith. The best I can do is to continue to pray for the strength of the survivors and peace for relatives left dealing with the pain.

Please know that ThemeParkHipster will continue to spread the message of love, unity, and life here in Orlando.

Let us all take a moment today to remember the people who have lost their life in the multiple tragedies.
