Florida vacations just aren’t complete without a visit to Sea World. SeaWorld Orlando is the twelfth most visited theme park in the world, and ranked seventh most visited in the United States. There’s no place in the world like the Sea World Orlando theme park. Where else can you touch and feed dolphins, count the teeth on a shark and come face-to-face with a polar bear? At Sea World Orlando, families can visit the Shamu Adventure theatre and see Shamu himself do tricks while flying through the air. At the Key West Dolphin exhibit, you can pet and feed dolphins and stingrays – you just can’t get any closer than this! Or perhaps you’d enjoy Pets Ahoy, a hilarious show featuring more than 100 animal athletes, or the new show Believe. Challenge Kraken, which is Orlando’s only floorless coaster. Don’t miss “Journey to Atlantis” on Sea World – the super-charged water coaster of mythic proportions. And, just try to stay dry when the world famous Shamu comes a splashing! Only recently has Sea World begun to include thrill rides into its lineup and you can look for the trend to continue in the future. Flight simulator meets daring adventure as you embark on a thrilling jet-helicopter ride through the breathtaking, perilous, icy landscapes of the frozen north. Put yourself in your pilot’s hands as he maneuvers treacherous frozen peaks and valleys en route to Base Station Wild Arctic—a place where magnificent polar bears, beluga whales, and walruses have turned Mother Nature’s most challenging conditions into a polar playground. The 400-foot Sky Tower has stood as an icon for Sea World’s park since they opened in 1973. Today the Sky Tower adds a dose of retro-cool to the day’s adventures. Get a seabird’s eye view of Orlando during this leisurely capsule ride, and take a load off as you plot the rest of your day in the park. The Sky Tower is now included with park admission. Get transported into the rarely seen and icy world of Antarctica™. You’ll feel the majestic grandeur of the South Pole and see it through the eyes of a penguin named Puck on an exhilarating, first-of-its-kind family adventure ride. You’ll be able to choose a “mild” or “wild” version of this trackless, motion-based simulator experience. After you step off the ride, you’ll explore the penguins’ colony in an expanse that envelopes you in cool extremes: bringing you above and below their icy world. You can observe the penguins’ antics any time on their live Penguin Cam! Find out what it’s like to spin, glide, skim and fly like a giant ray when you experience Manta® – the only flying roller coaster of its kind in the world. Riders are taunted by a head-first, face-down inverted nosedive… and that’s just the beginning. Experience the full force and power of riding the high seas, all on one of the smoothest tracks in the world. Non-riders are in for their own kind of thrill in the Manta Aquarium, with 10 stunning underwater habitats, over 100 rays, and thousands of colorful fish. After you’ve returned to land, don’t forget to stop by Stingray Lagoon, where you can “pet” over 200 rays as they glide just beneath the surface of their habitat’s peaceful waters. It’s a fact, kids love to climb. Just wait until the kids discover Net Climb! These four-story nets link together through a series of winding tunnels and slippery slides—all big enough for parents to enjoy, too. Sea World is definitely an experience for not just the kids, but for adults too! Check out the savings for passes and accommodations with Silver Lake Resort Sea World vacation packages!
