KISSIMMEE, Fla. — At the Old Town theme park, you can wander through a haunted house, dress up like a cowboy, munch salt water taffy and croon karaoke.

Just like at a classic Ocean City boardwalk.

Old Town is a low-key affordable option to big parks like Disney and Universal.

Parking and admission are both free. You can wander old-timey streets filled with dozens of shops while drinking a beer that does not cost a mortgage payment.

Old Town, which has been in Kissimmee for more than three decades, is in the midst of a $20 million renovation.

Highlights include:

  • Portrait Gallery: an immersive dress-up photo studio with highly detailed themed rooms
  • Mortem Manor: an intense walk-thru haunted house with animatronics and scare actors
  • Frogger’s: a bar and grill with a ginormous delicious challenge called the Bullfrog Burger

For bigger thrills, Old Town is connected to Fun Spot, a pay-per-ride park with a giant wooden roller coasters.
