I recently went hang gliding with the great group of pilots, instructors ,student and owner at Wallaby Ranch. You go early in the morning and then after your wake up flight you retire to coffee while a huge breakfast brunch was being prepared to which you are invited to join. The morning I went was rather chilly, but the scenery... More

What an experience, this is one of the must-do's in Orlando, you have not seen Orlando like this. The staff is very good and they treat you the right way. They had a chef come into the ranch and cook breakfast for us. Awesome experience, definitely a life changer.

I am not a thrill seeker. This hang gliding is the absolute best. You go tandem with an experienced professional. The crew and owner make you feel so welcome and relaxed. It's a laid back morning, they serve you breakfast afterwards. You don't need a reservation. It is something you must try.

What an amazing way to start the day! The Wallaby Ranch is huge! The ranch isn't to far from Disney World right off the 4 West. The driveway isn't well marked or conspicuous in any way but navigation gets you there no problem. I showed up 1st thing at 8 am (which I recommend). The place is very low key... More

First time experiencing hang gliding, Oliver made me feel comfortable and even went as far as continuously talking to me to calm my nerves. the whole gang made our group feel welcomed and safe. Breakfast afterwards was the icing on the cake. Will definately be back! My 6 year old niece enjoyed it so much that she went twice.

Yes you can hang glide in central Florida. They tow you to altitude via an ultralight and release. They offer tandems as well for beginners. This is an amazing establishment with a fantastic free breakfast. Will definitely go back and recommend this to everyone. Add this to your bucket list.

Took my 15 year old son for the tandem hang gliding. My 72 year old mother in law ended up giving it a try as well. The owner said conditions weren't perfect when we arrived, so we hung out (literally, on porch swings hanging from trees covered in Spanish moss...this is an interesting place) until he decided conditions were favorable....

Was here recently as part of a friend's bachelor party and we all had an awesome time. Minutes after I showed up I was strapped into the hang glider with the instructor and taking off. This was my first time hang gliding and it was a very cool experience. After we had all taken our turn, we went back to... More
