Sea World, Orlando
VISIT SEA WORLD By the mid-eighties SEA WORLD was starting to lose it’s appeal. The park was beginning to look shabby so Sea World began to add rides and shows to the usual stuff.
1-Sea World Sea Lion and Otter Stadium
'Clyde and Seamore Take Pirate Island' features sea lions, otters and walrus .
2-Terrors of the Deep Exhibit
four large Plexiglas tubes. Within the tubes lurks the world’s largest collection of venomous and/or carnivorous life-threatening sea creatures. .
3-Sea World's Journey to Atlantis
water-flume ride . The theme of the ride is that the lost city of Atlantis has resurfaced
the usual ..Sadly, in 'Shamu Adventure,' the whale is joined by animal 'guru' Jack Hanna in simulated trips to Alaska and Norway. To me Jack Hanna has to be the worlds dumbest animal 'expert' because all I ever hear on his TV shows and Letterman when he is asked questions is..'Dunno'...or 'Gee I dunno' and I find it irritating at best. No thanks ';-)
you can easily cover the highlights in an afternoon and be well on your way to Disney World!!!
Go to Sea World and visit the dolphin pool. If I have to remember one thing from Orlando it will be going here. You can feed (at an extra cost) and even stroke the dolphins, they swim up to the side of their pool and let you play with them for as long as you like.
They always seem to be laughing and have a permanent smile on their face. This was a very humbling experience and brought a tear to my eyes and is definately a MUST DO in Orlando.
Fondest memory: We visited Sea World as a last minute adventure. It was more than just a marine show with Shamu.My kids loved the playgrounds and feeding tanks better than the shows.
The pirate ship was a big hit with the kids.
Favorite thing: Seaworld is another Destination in Orlando. There is plenty to see and do. Shamu is the Large Killer Whale that preforms there. Of all the things, I love the Whales, Dolphins and other sea creatures shows. They offer a water Ski Show also.
Favorite thing: Sea World, the Orca display is absolutely fasinating but do be warned you get very, very, wet if you sit near the front, there is a splash line for those with expensive camera so that you do not get your equipment wet. Also the Atlantis ride is probably the best log flume ride I have ever been on, it is the longest drop log ride in the world and you get absolutely soaked, most of the americans were wearing plastic macs, they were in the know, we didnt and worse there are water jets that people can spray you with and it seemed to be a case of get the Brits.
Favorite thing: see the Clyde & Seamore Sea Lion show at Seaworld. It's great. Don't miss the mime artist that entertains the crowds before the show because he is hillarious
