Crashes are normally NOT funny. Yet, perhaps one of human nature’s flaws, is that part of us LIKES to watch things crash into one another! Even school buses! How about cars/trucks towing boats on trailers? Yes. Even that, when combined in an event, Crash-a-rama is sure to thrill. Twice a year we can cheer for crashes and Saturday, June 18, you’ll have your chance to experience this crazy type of Orlando entertainment.
Imagine school buses racing through a figure 8 at speeds up to 50 miles per hour. This full contact race will keep you on the edge of your seat just waiting for impact! If that weren’t enough, the free-for-all-style race complete with boats and camper trailers will fill the arena with debris and cheers. These are demolition derby sports at their finest. Some racers are truely trying to ‘win’ while others are just wanting to take people out of the race by destroying the other vehicles. Crazy!
Orlando Speed World is located at 19164 East Colonial Drive, Orlando, FL 32820. Entry into this event is only $20/adult, $5 for kids 7-12, 6 and under are free. There are bleachers you can sit in, but I would highly recommend bringing in your own lawn chair and get a front row view near (but not too near) the fence. Get there early – gates open at 5:00 p.m. with the action starting at 8:00 p.m. Bring a bandana to wear around your face, protective eyewear (clear glasses) and don’t wear clothing that dirt will stain. Yes. You’ll be near the action and get dirty. Debris will fly and the fence may not catch it all. It is carnage close-up and extremely entertaining.
Featured in Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy, Crash-a-rama is a unique high action, peddle to the metal thrill show. It is a great family event. With this weekend being Father’s Day, why not take Dad to the crashes, oops – I mean races, on Saturday. Then on Sunday evening, take Dad out to eat dinner at Capone’s Dinner & Show. Both shows are a sure thing.
