Can anybody help me out, I'm thinking of taking 2 weeks to go over to the States in April to ride some cable. I would like to start my season in some nice weather (well a lot nicer than home )
Would like to learn my first air tricks.

Any recommendations? OWC, TSR etc?
So I would appriciate any suggestion on where to ride, does anywhere sell multi day passes. Where to stay etc.

Thank you

Are you goofy or Regular? Id highly suggest checking out McCormicks down in Tampa!

whether you are regular or goofy, your best bet is to centralize yourself closest to McCormicks because then you have 3 cables close to you. OWC is less than an hour from McCormicks and Revolution is a little over 2 hours. Basically McCormicks is the center point, the only issue is what to do after you ride. You will
definitely enjoy Orlando more in that sense. There really isn't a "good" place to stay if you choose McCormicks except for the hardrock hotel/casino which will be expensive.

Go to OWC and you can hit up McCormicks as well. I think they are about an1.5hr apart (driving time). Should be plenty of cheap hotels in Orlando and OWC can probably tell you what's close and has a deal.

OWC also has a boat and a System 2.0. The 2.0 is included in the cable pass. And OWC has two cables to cut down on the lines and provide a slower cable for beginners. You can check the web site for rates.

Thanks for the replies
I'm regular but pretty much anything I can do regular, I can do switch. So I don't mind, if anything a counter clockwise cable would help my switch riding.

Regarding places to stay, when I said something nice, I mean somewhere comfortable, where my gear will not get stolen. I couldn't afford anything 5 star, this will be a ski bum holiday. Very limited budget, I just want to get out and ride somewhere new. I'm just looking for somewhere comfortable to put my head down.

I'd like to get somewhere with friendly staff who'll give me a few tips (I don't mind paying extra for lessons) but I've been to some of the cables in the UK and some are very friendly and others are very clicky, and basically ignored any rider that wasn't landing S-bends or a hot girl.

Thanks again.

Hey man, just got back from there. We stayed up round universal blvd. It was about a half hour to OWC and maybe an hour to McCormick's. Almost best of both worlds. I went with my family though and rented a house but you still shouuld check out the area

last time i went to florida i stayed in clermont. it's near disney world and close to OWC and Mccormicks.there is also a hotel right at the exit #10 off i4 next to lazy days RV center . it's only about a mile to a mile and a half from mccormicks [which is counterclockwise] and not far down the interstate to OWC.

I've been going to OWC since it opened and have never felt any cliqueishness going on.

Try and hit up Revolution, good rails and kickers and a very chill and friendly cable with little to no lines this time of year for hours and rates
