SeaWorld Adventure Park
With a wide variety of activities, SeaWorld is a great idea for the first full day of your vacation – stadium-style shows means there are tons to see without having to line up in the searing heat! Make sure you pick up a show schedule and take 10 minutes to plan your day proceeding clockwise (or counter-clockwise for you lefties) around the park – running from one side to the other will get old fast!
Infinity Falls Opening 2018
Calling all explorers- The World’s Tallest River Rapid Drop is coming Summer 2018! Are you brave enough to embark on an expedition through Infinity Falls? Explore the base camp set up by those who first made the discovery, and then climb aboard your raft and unearth the secrets of this lost rainforest river. Keep your wits about you as you pass drenching fountains and waterfalls. Hold on tight! The roaring rapids look like they might just send you flying over that huge drop!
Journey into the world of majestic killer whales in One Ocean – or learn more about Orcas, and other species of whales during a special educational show called Ocean Discovery. And of course, there’s nothing quite like sitting in the splash zone!
SeaWorld has delivered the thrills with Mako, the fastest, tallest, longest coaster in the Orlando market. The ride is designed as a “hypercoaster,” which experts define as having a height of 200 feet, high speed, no inversions and a bundle of air time — the lift out of seats that enthusiasts covet. For the record, it’s getting rave reviews!
The mighty Kraken, meanwhile, is hailed by ‘coaster heads’ as the best ride of it’s kind in town. Don an optional virtual reality headset on ‘Kraken Unleashed’ and prepare to embark on a deep-sea mission alongside sea creatures inspired by extinct and legendary animals of the past. You may have imagined what this mythological brute looks like but soon you’ll come face-to-face with him and others as you enter their world…deep, deep under the sea.
Journey To Atlantis
Journey To Atlantis, a cross between a log flume and rollercoaster, has two of the steepest, wettest drops you’ll find anywhere.
Then there’s Manta, which swoops around the park like a giant ray with riders suspended underneath it’s ‘wings’ – it’s a whole new genre of coaster, one that has upped the thrill stakes all across town!
Antarctica – Empire of The Penguin
Antarctica – Empire of The Penguin is a state of the art ‘trackless’ dark ride culminating in an up-close (splashing distance!) encounter with numerous species of penguins. The birds are NOT behind glass so as habitats go this is really something quite unique. It get’s very chilly as the main exhibit is kept at a very ‘fresh’ 40 degrees – not to mention the lighting is on ‘Antarctic’ time so the odds are it’s probably not going to be a sunny encounter!
