SeaWorld Orlando

The current version of this description is at .

SeaWorld Orlando is the world's largest marine-themed park, offering exhibits and live shows featuring dozens of species, from dolphins and manatees to the park's signature "Shamu" orcas (more popularly known as killer whales).

SeaWorld's got plenty of non-animal attractions, too, including the roller coasters Kraken and Manta, which won the Theme Park Insider Award for the nation's best new attraction when it debuted in 2009. Parents with small children will want to take them to Shamu's Happy Harbor play area for much less intense thrills.

Food's also an attraction at the park (which used to be own by the Anheuser Busch company). SeaWorld Orlando typically offers special dining experiences, including luaus and meals with animal trainers, in addition to its regular collection of restaurants. Check at the park's entrance for what available when you visit.

Buy your tickets in advance on SeaWorld's website, which typically offers online-only deals. Check SeaWorld's website for park operating hours, too.

SeaWorld is located at the intersection of Interstate 4 and the Central Florida Parkway. Scroll down to links for Theme Park Insider readers' reviews of all the attractions and restaurants at SeaWorld Orlando. Or search our archives for more news about the park.

Seaworld is one of the best parks at Christmas time. It is truly amazing. Image the Christmas story and excellent decorations thru out the entire park -- Last edited by vernon griffin on June 23, 2013
