Much like in the movie that shares its name, this is a real World War II fighter pilot school. You actually take the controls of an authentic 1930s vintage Warbird! No previous pilot experience is required. Well-trained licensed pilots accompany you, and their job is to provide you with a safe, enjoyable flight. If you are ready to handle barrel-rolls, loops and other aerobatic maneuvers, ask about the World War II aerobatics package.

They're alive! More than 170 wax renderings collected at Potter's Wax Museum are on display—Hollywood stars, authors, scientists, artists, historic explorers and royalty.

Potters has the only public real working wax studio. You'll also find a movie theater presentation and a museum shop here.
For a bird's-eye view of the oldest city in America, a parasailing trip will surely do the trick. Smile High will pick you up from any location in St. Augustine and take you to the municipal marina, where your adventure begins. The instructors allow guests to fly side-by-side with up to three people at a time. Sail at 1,400 feet off the ground, harnessed to a parachute with a giant smiley face that keeps you aloft to enjoy the best view of St Augustine.
With its clubhouse just yards from the World Golf Hall of Fame, The Slammer and Squire meanders naturally through native hardwood forest that borders wetland preserves and wildlife habitat. The course is nestled into the existing surroundings so as not to disturb the area's pristine natural setting. In the spirit of World Golf Village's mission, The Slammer and Squire is a challenging course that still doesn't unfairly penalize the inexperienced player. The Slammer and The Squire was created by local golf course designer Bobby Weed and PGA Tour Design Services, with golf legends Sam Snead and Gene Sarazen tapped as player consultants.
The Village is centered around the World Golf Hall of Fame, an all-encompassing look at the history and tradition behind the game of golf. It features interactive exhibits and biographies of the game's top players as well as stories told on a six-story-tall IMAX theater where visitors feel the experience unfolding on the screen. In addition to entertainment, the WGV has more than 80,000 square feet of shopping along with plenty of different restaurants. There are a number of facilities available for private special events and certainly, you couldn't leave without playing a round or two at King & Bear or Slammer & Squire, two of Northern Florida's best courses.
Water Sports of St Augustine specializes in jet-ski rentals and parasailing high above the oldest city. Up to three people at a time can blast around the Intracoastal Waterway on this company's fleet of personal watercraft. If you are interested in additional water activities, why not try one of their Jamaican bobsled rides, boogie boards or kayak rentals? Or soar above the water as a parasail lifts you above the treetops. Anyone can do it; the young, the old and the physically challenged can fly tandem with a friend. See their website for further details.
All of the animals at the St. Augustine Wild Reserve are rescued from abusive or inappropriate places of acclimation. Unfortunately, most of these animals cannot be rehabilitated and released, however as opposed to euthanizing them, the reserve provides new, appropriate habitats. In fact, one of the lions and some of the wolves once belonged to Michael Jackson. The reserve's mission objective is to educate the public about these rescued animals and the only way to visit the park is by appointment.
The King & The Bear at World Golf Village is the brainchild from two of golf's greatest, Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus, hence the name "King & Bear." It's located north of St. Augustine, just off I-95 near the Twelve Mile Swamp Conservation Area. The course is home to tall pines and the foliage of 200-year-old live oaks provides shade while golfers try their luck on this challenging 18-hole course.
Palencia is an awesome private club which offers very limited outside play, and we can get you on. The Arthur Hills design meanders through hardwood forests and along marshland preserves for beautiful scenery and topography. The Intracoastal serves as a stunning backdrop for greens six and sixteen. Strategic shot-making is rewarded throughout the course, especially on the four unique and demanding par fives, including the ninth and eighteenth holes. The 7,100-yard layout respects the beauty and fragility of the natural environment and shares the landscape with the many native and migratory species. It is difficult to perceive where the golf course ends and nature begins. Come out and experience this gem firsthand. Limited play has the course in great shape all year round.
