Swing into the new year at TopGolf Orlando

Happy New Year, everyone!

The holidays sure did fly by this year; I think because in general, we are just getting busier and busier. I think that’s why I enjoy TopGolf so much, and the fact that I’m actually pretty good at it. But, honestly, it gives you a chance to simply enjoy the company of friends and family while playing a competitive leisurely game of “golf.”

If you are not familiar with TopGolf, it is basically a multi-level driving range. You nook, called a Bay, can accommodate up to 8 people and bar and table service are available throughout the game play.

There are a variety of different games you can choose from, based on your expertise. I prefer just the original TopGolf mode, but there is something for everyone whether you are looking to test your skills or just practice your swing.

It’s mini golf with a twist and will easily become your local hangout. Once you purchase a Lifetime Membership to TopGolf (only $5) you will receive a card which holds all your previous scoring information; it also allows your balls to know who is hitting. The golf balls at TopGolf are microchipped with a Toptracer which measures the carry, ball speed, height, hang time and curve of the ball. You’ll feel like a pro during the replay.

It’s one of my favorite new attractions in the Orlando area.

Check your local TopGolf location for reservation information. Walk-ins are always welcome, but if you are in a time crunch look into making a reservation. *Reservation fees will apply.

Who’s ready to challenge me to round?

‘Eye’ Experienced a Record Setting Feat at The Orlando Eye

This morning, daredevil Nik Wallenda made history by walking across one of Central Florida’s newest attractions, The Orlando Eye.

20150429_073525Media spread out on the lawn below the giant wheel, as local restaurants came around with small breakfast bites and coffee, as we waited in anticipation for the big event.

You could feel the anxiety build as the wheel began making its move. We all knew Nik was inside one of the capsules.

Heavy rain showers were in the forecast for this morning, someone was looking out for Nik, and us. I had watched an interview earlier, his main concern was how slippery the finish was on the beams.  Can you imagine how slippery it would have been if there would have been rain?  My heart was already pounding out of my chest.

Throughout the entire walk, he was communicating with the TODAY Show.  I can barely walk and chew gum at the same time, but he was able to balance on a beam and talk to a major news network at the same time.  I really need to up my game.

20150429_082057I think this was a great way to reveal the new Orlando Eye to the world.  History was made.

The Orlando Eye opens on May 4th.  Click Here for more information on tickets and hours.
