    Ray Encounter Pool

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This gives you an opportunity to get close to some fish from the seabed and touch them. I`m not sure what sort of rays they are but you can get close to them if they want to get close to you.
    Also on show are some baby rays.

    Good old Sea World

    I really got impressed on how this park developed in the last 10 years.
    You can visit it with your whole family, and also enjoy some thrill rides like Atlantis and the very nice coster called Kraken....
    It's really worth a visit.....

    The Shamu Show

    by DUNK67 Updated Feb 17, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a definate must see. Who would have thought an animal as big as a Killer Whale could jump so high. BEWARE though, what goes up must come down, and when SHAMU comes down you are likely to get a good soaking if you are sat in the front few rows.

    Shamu the Killer Whale performs all kinds of tricks with his handler, it is amazing to watch as he jumps, twists, spins and splashes around.

    Clyde And Seamore Show

    by DUNK67 Updated Sep 15, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A very funny and entertaining show following the fortunes of the Hotel Clyde and Seamore. The cast comprises of sealions, walrus and an otter with a bit part played by the human handlers, in a slapstick comedy on land and in water.

    The animals are in charge of the Hotel and the humans are the brunt of many a joke and end up getting a good soaking.

    Manatee up close and personal

    by DUNK67 Updated Aug 6, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    See a resident of Florida up close without endangering it. The Manatee is a beatiful animal but is in danger of extinction through no fault of its own. Propellors on boats are the main cause of death for the Manatee in the wild but here you can see them safe in a close replica of their natural habitat.
    They look as though they would be big and clumsy animals but they just seem to glide through the water effortlessly.

    The Manatee eats greenery and when they are fed at Sea World you can see their noses out of the water searching around for food on the surface of their pool.

    Dolphin and Porpoise show

    A superb show of acrobatics from the animals and their trainers. Some people question this sort of activity but the facilities and the love for the animals shown by the trainers is excellent .

    Look out for the specially selected member of the audience as well.

    This place is definately worth a visit. It is expensive but if you take into account that you get a 7 day pass ot Seaworld or Busch, its not to bad. I found it very emotional when I actually got to kiss our dolphin. The layout of the park is very good and it never gets crowded.

    The Stars- Dolphins

    by mikeraw Written Jan 20, 2004

    The photo opportunities are endless, and the Stars of Sea World have got to be the Dolphins, there are set times during the day when the visitors can purchase small fish to feed the Dolphins, they know when the times are as they seem to get excited prior to feeding time. I think they know that when they get the food they have to pose for pictures as you can see.

    Extra Shows a Must See

    by JSki Updated Oct 18, 2003

    I know that when a lot of folks go to Sea World they go to just the animal shows and that's it. Of course the animal shows are wonderful but don't forget to check out the off beat shows they have too. They change from time to time but the cast remains the same. They just like to freshen the show up at times. Get to shows early and sit up front. Don't be afraid to get involved and be a part of the show. You'll be creating memories that will last a lifetime, especially if you have children with you. My daughter still talks about how we ended up being part of the show at Seaworld to all her friends. We were sitting up front and this character that started the show was motioning for a camera. Well, I handed him mine and he proceeded to take a picture of himself and us in the audience. We have the very funny moment captured on film!

    Funny, funny man

    See Sea World

    by JSki Written Oct 18, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sea World is one of the best parks in Orlando. For one thing it is a bargain. Upon visiting you can always get an extended pass which for an extra few bucks you can come back any time for free. The amount of the add on depends on how long you extend. You can choose a 5 day extension, or even an annual one. No other park allows you to do this. Also this is one of the best parks if the weather is rainy. The animals are still very active, sometimes more so. And hey, you're going to get wet at the Shamu show anyway so who cares if you get wet! I always tell people, if you're going to be in town for a week, get the extender pass. All else fails, come back...there is always more to see and do and it's such a large park it's tough to see everything in one day anyway!

    Well, actually I don't like these kind of parks but Sea World is an exception for they support programs for the prevention of cruelty to animals. So, I think spending one's money on a Sea World ticket is a good thing actually, at least it seems so.

    Besides visiting several shows, the most famous / popular is probably the one of the killer whale Shamu, you can learn a lot about all kinds of anmials living in the sea here.

    Besides other attractionparks,...

    by Pavlik_NL Written Sep 8, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Besides other attractionparks, Seaworld is the largest sea-aquarium/dolfinarium in the world. The shows, aquaria, exhibitions and park itself, can keep you busy for a full day. Great thing is the fact that Seaworld truely tries to also learn you about the ocean and it's inhabitants, the delicate balance of the seas and the wonders of the natural (wet) world. More in the sence of spectacular action are the waterski-shows and the closing firework & lasershow. Shows of otters, dolphins, sealions and - most wonderful - Killerwhales / Orca's. By the way, Shamu, star of this last show, has been raised and trained first in Dolfinarium, Harderwijk, The Netherlands! But our little country is too small for such big animal (-:
