Gravity: the world's theme park capital is built to defy it. Orlando boasts some of the finest rides on the planet. They generate the biggest thrills when visitors are swirled, twisted and catapulted in stomach-churning manoeuvres that flout the pull of the earth. Central Florida can provide wall-to-wall, ride-to-ride, high-energy excitement. Yet Orlando also has historic, gentle and sophisticated dimensions that far too many visitors overlook.
