SeaWorld Orlando

SeaWorld's latest attraction is a 5-acre area of the park defined as The Waterfront. Here you'll find elaborately designed 'seaports' with fine food, entertainment, and shops reflecting the world's most captivating cities by the sea.

The Shamu show features the awesome acrobatics of killer whales. Sit your kids in the front row seats for the splash of a lifetime. The Odyssea at the Nautilus Theatre is an underwater fantasy world with acrobatics, music, and comedy. More interactions amuse at the Key West Dolphin Adventure where Atlantic bottlenose dolphins & false killer whales entertain guests with their amazing athletic abilities & light-hearted fun. Look for comical swashbuckling sea lion and otter mis-adventure in the Clyde and Seamore Take Pirate Island show.  Land lubbers will appreciate the hilarious antics of Pets Ahoy featuring dogs, cats, birds, rats, skunks, pot-belly pigs, and others. Most impressive about Pets Ahoy is that most of the performers were rescued animals from shelters.

There are plenty of other Animal 'attractions' to be had as well. Leave sunny Florida behind and board a hair-raising gale-driven helicopter ride over jagged mountain peaks and glaciers to the Wild Arctic. There's little left to the imagination in this vivid hi-tech recreation of the flight to and the landscape of the arctic and the animals that live there. You'll also learn plenty about life in the arctic. Other fabulous animal attractions include Manatees, the coral paradise of Key West, the Sea Lions of the Pacific Point Preserve, and the exotic birds of the Tropical Rain Forest. Don't miss Sharks! - a must see attraction!  Walk in the world's longest underwater acrylic tunnel with a bunch of sharks, slithery eels, barracuda, and venomous fish swimming over and around you. You only have an acrylic wall separating you from certain peril!

For those who need to express a few screams, try the floorless Kraken rollercoaster that is Orlando's tallest, fastest, and longest ride spiraling to 15-story heights and 7 upside down movements at speeds up to 65 mph.  Journey to Atlantis is a high speed race across the water on the high-speed rails and plummeting 60 feet.

There are several fine places to eat at SeaWorld:  Sharks Underwater Grill (an upscale full service restaurant), Dine with Shamu (buffet great for the whole family), Makahiki Luau where a nightly celebration with music is featured along with Polynesian fare, Seafire Inn/Rico & Rosa's Musical Feast (another great place for eating and family entertainment), Voyagers Wood Fired Pizzas (inside an old shipbuilder's hall), SandBar (where guests can enjoy sushi, shrimp cocktail, fresh fruit and cheese plates), Mango Joe's Cafe for fajitas, Captain Petes for chicken fingers, Mama Stella's Italian, barbeque chicken at Smoky Creek Grill, and of course, the Anheuser-Busch Hospitality Center.
