Orlando Contests, Sweepstakes & Giveaways

Since many people in the Tampa Bay area frequently commute to Orlando for both business and pleasure, I thought I would share the large number of contests available for entertainment in the Orlando area. Entering contests on a regular basis is a great way to cut down on entertainment costs. Most radio and TV stations give out prizes such as concert tickets, gift cards & tickets to sporting events. The more local the contest, the better your odds normally are to win.

Below is a comprehensive list of contest sites in the Orlando area. Make sure to check back regularly for new contests.

Orlando Sentinel
My Fox Orlando
Click Orlando WKMG
96 Rock
Power 95.3

NOTE: Check any contests Terms & Conditions to make sure that you are eligible to win a prize based off where you live. You may also have to pick up your prize in person, so make sure you are able to do so before entering.

Howl O Scream 2011 "Dark Side of the Gardens"

Don't look now, but there are only three days left to enjoy Howl O Scream at Busch Gardens this year! If you haven't been yet, here are a few great reasons why you should check out this great annual event:

  • There are over 6 freakishly creepy haunted houses.
  • There are no scare zones this year, but zombies and other ghouls are constantly moving throughout the park.
  • Last chance to ride attractions like Cheetah Hunt at night.
  • Entertaining shows: Fiends & The Midnight Hour.
  • The scariest house in the park, ALONE! It is $40 extra, but with a group of 4 it is only $10 a person.

Thursday is your last chance to buy the Busch Gardens Tampa Twisted 4 Pack. With this deal, you can buy four or more tickets for only $24.99. You can also save $35 off any regular ticket with promo codes from participating sponsors.

Visit the Howl O Scream site to buy advance tickets.

Tampa Bay Lightning Tesla Coil

The brand new Tesla Coils at the St Pete Times Forum have not been ready for the first two games of the season, but that won't stop me from watching this video after every Lightning goal until then! Hopefully they will be ready for the Lightning's final game of this opening home stand this Saturday. Otherwise, all of the new renovations look amazing at The Forum!

And remember to Be The Thunder!
