Sea World in Orlando

Sea World in Orlando

If you’re looking to have fun with animals, Sea World is the place to go. More than just another aquarium, Sea World serves as a theme park, as well as a marine-life based zoo. In addition to rides, shows, attractions, and exhibits, the place is home to a great conservational effort that seeks to educate the public about marine life.

In contrast to many other theme parks, Sea World Orland is not divided into fully dedicated themed sections. Instead, we find a series of individually themed attractions. The main entrance of the park, for example, represents a Florida-inspire theme, including lush tropical landscaping and a large artificial freshwater marina. A Shamu-themed iconic lighthouse can be found in the latter.

From there, we transition to Key West at Sea World, a part that is intended to copy the city of Key West and its architecture. Here, animal exhibits include cownose rays, southern stingrays, green sea turtles, hawksbill sea turtles, loggerhead sea turtles, Atlantic bottlenose dolphins, flamingos and much more. Guests can sign up to fee the stingrays and dolphins.

Next is Shamu’s Happy Harbor, hosted by Shamu, which is the park’s killer whale mascot. Here, you can revel in six thrilling family rides and roller coasters, as well as a water play area. At the Waterfront section, in turn, you can ride in the park’s iconic Sky Tower, one of the newest rides added in 2003. Then, get prepared to put your coats on for the Wild Arctic section, which includes an exhibit of polar bears, Beluga whales and Pacific walrus. During the Christmas season, this section is even transformed into what is called the “Polar Express Experience,” where guests can ride the Polar Express to the North Pole. Here, Santa Claus waits to greet them in from of a towering Giant Everest tree.
