Seaworld Orlando is an eclectic mix of spectacular marine shows, hands-on encounters with all kinds of sea creatures and some of the best rides in Orlando.
Penguins, manatees, sharks, seals, stringrays feature among the many animal attractions on offer, and for a unforgettable special treat, splash out on a visit to Discovery
Cove, where you can swim with the dolphins and snorkel among the tropical fish at a secluded idyllic beach.
No Disney park would be complete without some good rides for the kids to let off steam, and Seaworld Orlando is no exception. New for 2009 is Manta, a thrilling roller coaster where riders will travel face down, in an horizontal position. Kraken, the only floorless roller coaster in Orlando, is tops for thrills, while Journey to Atlantis combines all the elements of a roller coaster with a fast and furious water ride. The Wild Arctic Chopper Ride is a simulated journey across the frozen north, and for the little people, Shamu's Happy Harbour is a real haven.
The new Waterfront area offers plenty of choice for wining and dining, and you can always finish the day with a visit to the nightly Polynesian Luau dinner and show, featuring traditional song and dance from Hawaii.
