SeaWorld Orlando offers guests a different experience than either of its competitors – while Disney and Universal have different theme parks that offer their own unique experiences, SeaWorld Orlando offers a look at sea creatures and land-based animals living in their natural habitats, and combines that experience with a little of everything you would expect at Disney and Universal all in one place, with rides, shows and other attractions suitable for the entire family.
But before you set off to tackle Shamu the killer whale, be sure to check out the important park info about SeaWorld Orlando, including information regarding buying tickets at the park, discounted SeaWorld savings through Orlando Fun Tickets, along with special needs information and any additional knowledge that may be useful to help you spend your time wisely in this unique theme park.
Once you know everything you need to know about SeaWorld Orlando, it is off to tackle the best part of the park – the attractions. SeaWorld has you covered in all areas, as we mentioned above, as it offers a wide range of rides, shows and attractions, most of which appeal to a family audience. While SeaWorld is not known for their thrill rides, they do have some attractions that will satisfy even the most die-hard thrill seekers. Kraken, SeaWorld’s signature thrill ride, is Orlando’s tallest and only floorless roller coaster and is considered by many to be one of the – if not the – best coasters in all of Central Florida. And just like its signature ride, SeaWorld Orlando also has a signature show, or should we say animal, that is hard to miss. Shamu the killer whale delights fans in an all-new Believe show, allowing fans to get a glimpse of these creatures from the perspective of someone who works with them on a daily basis.
And, of course, Shamu may be the largest attraction at SeaWorld, but he sure is not the only one. Other marine mammals abound in the park, with many opportunities for guests to be as close to these creatures as they could ever be. There are opportunities, among others, to see/touch/feed dolphins at Dolphin Cay, stingrays at Stingray Lagoon and the famous Budweiser Clydesdales at Clydesdale Hamlet. You can also have a shark swim over your head at the Shark Encounter or get a firsthand view of endangered species that SeaWorld has recovered, such as manatees and sea turtles. While these attractions are educational, they are also fun and interesting for everyone in the family.
The rides and attractions at this park aren’t all that it has to offer, however. There are also many different interactive entertainment opportunities available, such as midway-style games, an entire just-for-kids area that has six rides only for children and a skying tower that not only overlooks SeaWorld, but all of Orlando.
Much like the park itself, SeaWorld offers many unique dining and shopping options for everyone as well. And, before you go, be sure to study our insider secrets, which will help you plan your day to its fullest at SeaWorld Orlando!
