Explore Sea World
Sea World is one of the non-Disney attractions but with the advent of three major thrill rides it has become one of the “must sees” of Orlando.
Although there are three high speed thrill rides there now, by far the most popular attractions are still the shows.
Clyde and Seymour Take Pirate Island is very funny and children love the sea lions and otters performing with their keepers. Watch them as they imitate the keepers’ actions, tease them and then look to the audience for their applause. Usually one member of the audience is chosen to interact with the sea lions in funny routines set up by the keepers. There is even an otter who won’t get in the water because he thinks it is too cold!
And who can resist dolphins. Their show, Blue Horizons, tells a story of a girls’ dream of becoming part of the dolphins world. She also imagines birds flying in tune with the dolphins. The birds are performed by trapeze artists representing the same birds that are flying around the arena. It is a show of epic grandeur and skill which is not to be missed. Don’t forget your cameras for this one.
A’Lure, The Call of the Ocean is a spectacular show of acrobats and silk yo-yo artists. Their skill and daring is formidable. Don’t miss it.
Then there are the thrill rides.
The first of these rides is Journey to Atlantis a fast and furious thrill ride only for the very brave. You will board an eight passenger Greek Shipping boat for a voyage that tells the story of Atlantis. There are twists , turns and watery falls coming your way as you explore the mystical Lost City of Atlantis. You will pass along a dark watery passage way through this sunken city and the sirens fury casts you out on to some of the steepest, wettest drops until you race out of the city.
Next there is Kracken. Again, one for the very brave. A roller coaster of monster proportions, it is Orlando’s fastest, tallest FLOORLESS roller coaster and is ranked as one of the ten best in the world. There is a height requirement for this ride.
The newest of the rides is Manta. Inspired by the speed with which the Manta ray swims, you will fly face down in a horizontal position under the belly of a giant Manta. Gliding swooping and diving up to about sixty miles an hour. This ride also has a height restriction.
So give Sea World a try, and don’t forget to walk through the shark tank for an awe inspiring view of sharks close up.
