Owner description: The Orlando Watersports Complex is a unique watersports park designed for wakeboarding, wakeskating, wakesurfing, kneeboarding and waterskiing. Since 1999, OWC has established itself as the best place to learn how to wakeboard. OWC is set up with two full size cable systems, a two-tower system and a boat lake. The two-tower system is great for teaching new riders the basics while our beginner full size cable provides them the tools to create a solid wakeboarding foundation. For the advanced riders, there is the advanced cable, which offers experienced riders many different advanced features.

This place has always looked so cool from the 528 when we drive by...the service was ok and the experience was ok. But we felt like it should have been more

I'd never been before so our group took advantage of a recent groupon that included a lesson and 4 hours cable time. This was a very good value and I do recommend a lesson if you're new to this.

This was a great outing for all 3 of our teenagers. They were exhausted by the end of the day and had a great time. The staff there were very friendly and helpful, especially Nick who was the instructor for our 8 year old! The only complaint was that if you fall on one of the turns you have to... More

I just wanted to share my experience at OWC. When I got there I was intimidated by the sport. Your staff was quick to rid that, Brandon took me for my 20 min session and made it simple for me to learn, I got up the first time and felt awesome! I spent the next hour attempting to get around...

Staff was very helpful, though despite their best efforts I could not get up on the board. I'd advise other first-timers to watch a few YouTube videos on how to launch on a wakeboard (sitting, standing, & jumping in), then try to execute based on that.

I had a great time at OWC! I've been wanting to go their for years, and had the opportunity to go after a business trip in downtown Orlando. It's really easy to get to, and is just about 20 minutes from downtown. The staff was nice. I was setup with a slider board, and they have these great snowboard style... More

It was my first time visiting the Orlando Watersports Complex. I was wake boarding on the faster advanced cable. I didn't want to get injured on the unfamiliar obstacles, so I asked the cable operator a question. He just was not interested. His answer was basically, "Whatever". After I jumped of the jetty into the water, my wife and son... More

We do our best to ensure that our operators are providing the best instruction and customer service while they are operating the cable systems; however, we are unable to... More

Excellent place to visit, people were really nice went over rules in detail. I felt safe since there were not to many jet skies in the water at one time!

Family with 3 grandchildren under 10 visited the watersport complex on a July day. We all relaxed and cooled down walking the park and garden trails in the early morning. We all took an air boat ride through the swampy area. We all found it exciting. The boys did some fishing. The family had a great time

On Feb 1,2014 my husband, son and I found this remote watersports complex that features two small man made lakes with 2 circular obstacle courses. Never having wake boarded before we were excited and a little scared. We got a 4 hour groupon pass to check it out. Eventhough we didn't get any, I definitely would recommend to get body... More
