Dezerland Hosts Larger Than Life’s Dream Trip

Dezerland Hosts Larger Than Life’s Dream Trip

When a family receives a serious diagnosis, especially for a child, it often becomes the focus of everyday life. Dezerland Action Park and Larger Than Life are working together to give these families a day of fun.

On March 20, Dezerland Action Park will host 35 children and teens who are not currently undergoing treatment as a part of Larger Than Life’s annual dream trip. Larger Than Life is a nonprofit organization that supports children and families in Israel throughout the healing process. Each year, the organization brings children—accompanied by caregivers, medical professionals, and family members—from Israel and other parts of the United States to Orlando.

For this year’s trip, Dezerland Action Park has agreed to cover the cost of all 75 to 100 guests’ fun and food during their visit to the entertainment center.

The group will enjoy a kosher meal inside Pinball Palace and a tour of the Orlando Auto Museum, which is home to more than 2,000 vehicles, including many vehicles made famous by television and movies, and the world’s largest collection of James Bond vehicles and memorabilia.

“We couldn’t be more excited to host the children from Larger Than Life at Dezerland Action Park and to see members of the community participate in the celebration,” said John Goodman, vice president of sales and marketing at Dezerland Action Park. “They’ve traveled a long way for this once-in-a-lifetime trip and it’s an honor to help them create happy memories.”

Larger Than Life and Dezerland Action Park are also inviting members of the local community and other organization supporters to participate in the fun with a celebration in the Orlando Auto Museum.

From 6 to 9:30 p.m., guests can explore the museum’s extensive collection of vehicles, followed by a carnival-style party complete with concession stands in the American Classics exhibit.

The event will also feature amazing entertainment, including an acrobat and a floating statue performer.

Tickets for supporters will cost $20 for adults and $10 for children. 100% of the ticket proceeds will benefit Larger Than Life. To learn more about the event or purchase tickets, click here.

Before the Larger Than Life celebration begins, those attending the event can also explore Dezerland Action Park’s other offerings, like axe throwing, racing on Florida’s longest indoor go-kart track with four skill and speed levels and competing in the laser tag maze or virtual reality arena.

Indigo Bluegrass BBQ at the Central Florida Zoo

econd annual Indigo Bluegrass BBQ at the Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens

The second annual Indigo Bluegrass BBQ at the Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens’ Orianne Center for Indigo Conservation (OCIC) will take place on February 11, 2023.

The event will run from noon to 4 p.m. at the OCIC, with parking at Cassia Community Center, 29245 Florida Highway 44 in Eustis.

The country casual event will allow guests to get outside and enjoy the sounds of the popular Lake County group, Blackwater Creek Bluegrass Band.

A delicious selection of barbecue favorites will also be served by OakWood Smokehouse & Grill.

During the event, beer will be provided by Wayne Densch, Inc., and wine will also be available.

“This event was so much fun last year that we knew we had to do it again,” said Dr. James Bogan, the director of the OCIC. “It allows guests to get away from everything for a day of great food, great music, and great company. Plus, we couldn’t do the work we do every day without this support. Attendees can help save a species.”

Proceeds from the event support the OCIC’s mission to re-introduce the eastern indigo snake—a threatened species native to the longleaf pine ecosystems of Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, and Florida that has been affected by habitat loss. The OCIC also works to reintroduce the striped newt.

The OCIC is the only captive breeding facility for the eastern indigo snake with the sole purpose of releasing the offspring into regions where the population has been extirpated.

The group has released more than 300 snakes at The Nature Conservancy’s Apalachicola Bluffs, Ravines Preserve in Bristol and Alabama’s Conecuh National Forest.

Attendees are asked to park at the Cassia Community Center and will be shuttled to the event site. The sponsor for the event is Publix Super Market Charities.

Tickets are $30 per person or $50 for two and are available here.

The new adventure park offers several high-intensity packages to give guests an immersive tank-driving experience. Each package includes a safety and vehicle briefing and offers an additional way to explore the terrain.

Tank America Packages include: 

  • Basic Tank Training: After a safety briefing from the platoon Commander at Headquarters, you will board one of our 17-ton tanks. Lead your crew through a 1/2-mile tank course that requires you to navigate hairpin turns, climb a fifteen-foot hill, and cross trenches.
  • Commander Package: Take the same epic adventure as the Basic Tank Training package with the added challenge of driving from inside the belly of the tank, navigating only through the vehicle’s periscope as if you’re driving into combat.  
  • Advanced Troop Package: Take the action up a notch and upgrade to the Advanced Troop Package to add a car crush, mud hole, and complimentary additional guest. This package is perfect for guests looking for even more destructive fun! The driver will find themselves face to face with a real car they get to drive over and crush three times from three different angles.  The glass will shatter, metal will fly, and the headlights will pop under the weight of 17 tons of armored tank fury.
  • Ultimate Package: With the Ultimate Package, you get to experience all that Tank America offers. Drive the tank course, including all the additional obstacles and the excitement of crushing a car. You can also test your skills using only the periscope and guidance from your tank commander to navigate through the Battle Front in combat locked up.

Tank America also offers packages for group visits. From bachelor parties to team building and anything in between, groups can come together and bond as they work through the experience. Get your adrenaline pumping behind the wheel of one of the awesome tanks.  

“Tank America is one of the only places in the country you can get behind the wheel of a real tank outside of the Army,” said Tank America partner John Kinney. “If you’re looking for a thrilling experience outside of the theme parks, it doesn’t get more thrilling than Tank America.” 

The FV433 Abbot Tank holds one driver and three passengers. Guests must be 16 years old to drive a tank and at least 55 inches tall to ride as a passenger. Operating hours are Thursday through Monday from noon to 6 p.m.
