SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment cares for the largest animal collection in the
world. Since 1965, they have rescued more than 17,000 stranded, sick or injured
animals including endangered and threatened species.
Today, animals are still the main focus at SeaWorld Parks, with shows, entertainment, and roller coasters rounding out the experience. The park is like a zoo, aquarium and amusement park all rolled into one. Visitors to SeaWorld can experience many different kinds of animal encounters, whether chilling out on a ride with penguins, soaring through the air like a giant manta ray or getting splashed by the famous Shamu.
SeaWorld presents many ways for visitors to interact with animals. Visitors can casually stroll the park to observe flamingos, alligators, manatees and sea turtles. The Dolphin Nursery is a designated area for mothers and their newborn calves, who are especially playful for the audience.
Direct contact with the dolphins…
…brings real fun for the kids…
…especially when they can interact…
…in a game-like way with the world’s smartest animals.
At Shark Encounter, guests can glide through a glass tunnel-tube completely surrounded by sharks. Outside is a tank filled with beautiful and exotic rays, like the leopard whipray.
Watching the sharks swimming directly…
…over your head…
…reminds to an amazing NEPTUNE view.
Animal shows, offered throughout the day, also remain hugely popular among guests at SeaWorld who are awe-struck by the sheer intelligence and extraordinary abilities of water mammals.
SeaWorld’s signature show, “One Ocean,” features killer whales; dolphins take the stage in “Blue Horizons;” and in “Clyde and Seamore’s Sea Lion High,” sea lions, an otter and a walrus all perform.
…of a well-done training…
…are awesome for the visitor’s eye!
For a closer look, guests can pay a small fee to feed the animals, like stingrays, dolphins, sea lions and seals, and they can even participate in special behind-the-scenes tours customized to a personal interest, whether it’s dolphins, penguins or killer whales.
SeaWorld even incorporates animal encounters into the rides. Before boarding the roller coaster Manta, guests are led through an aquarium of manta rays.
The ride Antarctica takes passengers into a below-freezing room filled with penguins.
SeaWorld Orlando is home to some of the most thrilling roller coasters in town as well as fun rides for the entire family. Coming next year will be Mako, the fastest, highest and longest roller coaster in Orlando. Manta and Kraken are two roller coasters already at the park, both of which have been named among the best coasters in the country by roller-coaster fanatics as well as The Travel Channel. Kraken packs a G-Force rating of 3.9 with seven inversions and two vertical loops. Manta comes in a close second with a G-Force rating of 3.7 with four inversions and two inline twists, not to mention passengers are riding face-first.
Journey to the Atlantis is similar to Disney’s Splash Mountain with water elements and dramatic drops that get you soaked. For all three rides, you must store your items with a friend or in a locker. Lockers are $1 per hour and the two kiosks at each ride get crowded.
In the center of the park is Sky Tower, a 400-foot observation tower that visitors at least four-feet tall can ride to the top for views.
To avoid the lines for the most popular rides, guests may want to consider a Quick Queue pass, which allows you to skip to the front of the line at seven attractions. Quick Queues are sold online or at the park for $19.
Smaller children can easily spend a half day in Shamu’s Happy Harbor, with a huge ropes course, kid-friendly roller coaster, splash pad, carousel, miniature train, and other amusement rides.
Throughout the year, SeaWorld hosts special events, concerts, and food festivals, from the Halloween Spooktacular and SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration to Summer Nights along with Viva La Musica and Brews and BBQ in the spring. During the spring and summer events, artists like Alan Jackson, The Village People, Lee Greenwood and Sara Evans take the stage. All special events are included with theme-park admission.
Halloween Spooktacular is especially fun for children as the park dresses up in a carnival-like theme complete with games, costumes and trick-or-treating. During the Christmas Celebration, the park comes alive with thousands of lights—especially lovely in the Sea of Trees—and special attractions for kids like The Polar Express, visits with Santa and a Sesame Street “Countdown to Christmas” stage show.
SeaWorld is owned by the same parent company as Busch Gardens, which is located in Tampa, just an hour’s drive from Orlando on Interstate 4. In town, SeaWorld has two other parks: Aquatica water park and Discovery Cove. Aquatica is a tropical-themed water park with double wave pools, thrilling water slides, and even a beach.
Discovery Cove provides guests with a resort-like experience with special animal encounters. Here, guests can actually swim with dolphins, snorkel among colorful fish and manta rays, and hand-feed tropical birds.
SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund is a non-profit, private charitable foundation committed to supporting wildlife and habitat conservation, research, education, and animal rescue programs. Animal rescue is also a significant focus on SeaWorld. Over the last 50 years, SeaWorld has helped rescue more than 26,000 animals, including sea turtles, dolphins and manatees from right here in Central Florida.
