Orlando, which tops the list of the most family-friendly destinations in the country, opened its newest theme park in the area last December, under much scrutiny. Machine Gun America is a theme park dedicated to machine guns and firearms, allowing children 13 and older to shoot in both simulated and live experiences.
Guests choose from a range of military-grade guns, including Smith & Wesson .22. .44 Magnums and Glock 17s, as well as Beretta CX4s, M4s and AK-74s for target shooting. Live gun targets starts at $99, depending on the weapon chosen. Simulated experiences start at $30 with games such Gangster Land, the Walking Dread, 007 and a Western Shootout, as well as Big Screen Legends, where guests get a chance to play their hero in a famous movie. During the simulations, visitors can select from a number of firearms to get a better feel for the experience.
Children 12 and younger are not allowed to participate in simulations and are not allowed in areas where there is live fire, but there is a play zone where they can play video games while waiting for family members who are of age.
Machine Gun America is located on West Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway in Kissimmee, Florida, just minutes from Disney World’s Main Gate.
