5 reasons to visit SeaWorld Orlando

SeaWorld Orlando is one of the US' most renowned theme parks. Though it's most famous for its aquariums and water shows, it also boasts an array of other attractions, including rides. Here are the best reasons to splash out on a visit!

Signature Shows

SeaWorld's classic aquatic displays remain one of its key draws. Witness the majesty of dolphins, killer whales, and other creatures performing at one of 3 arenas!

Kraken

The mythical Kraken terrified sailors for centuries, but meeting it must have been a paddle in the shallow end compared to this intense rollercoaster! Leave valuables in a locker!

Sky Tower

As old as the park itself, the retro observation tower offers a seagull's view of the entire theme park from over 120 meters up!

Wild Arctic

This flight simulator takes you through the perils of North Pole exploration, but if that's not enough you can also meet the animals themselves on the Wild Arctic Up-Close Tour!

Shark Encounter

SeaWorld offers the opportunity to get up close with many creatures from sea lions to penguins to baby dolphins, but there are many you'd probably prefer not to feed!
