MACC Bites Back
A coaster vacation with some teeth!
We're all smiles when the fall rolls around. Cooler temperatures, earlier evenings ... and things that go bump in the night! For our next vacation getaway, MACC gets right to the point with coasters that have bite, to say nothing of the amazing animals our travelers will be able to encounter!

Schedule
Friday, September 30
  • After arriving at Orlando International Airport, we start the trip off right with the HUUUUUUUGE fun of Fun Spot America, home to the epic White Lightnin' and the fun-for-all-ages Freedom Flyer, along with go-karts and other assorted rides!
  • Enjoy the drive in the afternoon to Tampa, where we settle in for the evening.
  • Travelers may enjoy cooling off at the hotel, or they may choose to visit Busch Gardens Tampa's terrifying Howl-O-Scream event on their own.
 
Saturday, October 1
  • Coasters and critters rule the day as MACC heads to Busch Gardens Tampa. Experience the all-new Cobra's Curse, the latest addition to the park's world-class coaster collection. Be sure to check out Montu (celebrating its 20th anniversary this year), SheiKra and Scorpion, or drop face-down from 330 feet in the air aboard Falcon's Fury!
  • As we explore the park, we'll be sure to visit their extensive animal exhibits. Get up close and personal with elephants, tigers, reptiles and much more!
  • After a full day of adventure, we return to Orlando and check into our hotel, then enjoy a group dinner at Chevy's Mexican restaurant
Sunday, October 2
  • We get into the swim of things at SeaWorld Orlando bright and early! The park's newest coaster, Mako, is the tallest and fastest coaster yet built in Orlando. It perfectly complements the stunning Manta flying coaster and Kraken floorless coaster. You can also get your feet (and potentially everything else) wet aboard Journey to Atlantis!
  • Don't miss the animals here, either! Killer whales, dolphins, sea lions and sharks await our adventurers, both in immersive exhibits and inspiring shows. You can even feed some of them!
  • We close out the day with a group farewell dinner at BJ's Brewhouse, then retire to the hotel.
Monday, October 3
  • We return to Orlando International Airport for travelers to catch their flights home.
