Take it from your amphibious pals—it's always a good time visit SeaWorld Orlando. This summer has seen the park leap with terrific nighttime events that have kept us entertained from dawn until dusk. While summer is slowly fading, don't worry. You still have a chance to sea some limited-time events. Plus, you should check out the new experiences that have splashed onto the scene. This post will highlight what's new at SeaWorld Orlando. Get ready to soak in the fun, with very minimal sea or water puns ;)
SeaWorld Orlando is an Orlando theme park experience you don't want to miss. Over the past few years, the famous park has been adding a steady stream of new attractions and animal exhibits. We love the the airtime on coaster Mako—check out Tad's video of Mako at night—and Lily can't get enough of Antarctica - Empire of the Penguin. The sea love flows into two other SeaWorld experiences. Aquatica, SeaWorld's Waterpark is one of our favorite Orlando water parks. Discovery Cove is an unforgettable experience that will get you nose-to-blow hole with dolphins. Swimming with sharks anyone? Hop over to our post to see why we call it one of Orlando's top attractions. We sell discounted tickets to all of these experiences for those of you that want to dive in. See? Minimal puns.
What's New at SeaWorld Orlando - Rides & Animal Encounters
SeaWorld Orlando's newest roller coaster experience will blow your mind. The park's legendary coaster has received a virtual reality reboot. Kraken Unleashed sends you racing through underwater canyons and hunting mythical sea creatures.
You'll dive underwater via VR goggles you wear while riding. The thrills get more intense as you dive, spin and roll in a virtual underwater sea experience. SeaWorld Orlando has also premiered the "Spot Saver" virtual line for Kraken Unleashed, so you simply check in and return at the estimated time. That way, you can explore some awesome animals in between!
The first rule of the Frog Blog: If there are baby animals involved, it becomes an instant frog family favorite. Right toward the entrance of SeaWorld Orlando, you can't miss this newly redesigned pool that showcases mother dolphins and their calves. This clear tank allows you to get up close and personal with newborn bottlenose dolphins as they practice jumping, playing and communicating. In a word, it is adorable. Not only is this just plain cute, but it's also an excellent way to introduce your tadpoles to the beauty of growth and learning in wildlife.
Sesame Street's Countdown to Halloween
It's not too early to start counting down the days to Halloween. With some help from The Count, Elmo, Abby and more Sesame Street friends, your tadpoles can dance, plan and sing along at this daily indoor stage show.
Infinity Falls - Coming 2018
Explorers are wanted for the new jungle river rapids expedition at SeaWorld Orlando. Arriving in 2018, you can journey through soaking fountains and waterfalls as you venture through an ancient civilization. This winding, flying river ride plunges you through chutes and down the tallest drop of its kind into churning whitewater while emphasizing the message of conservation throughout. End your journey at Harmony Village.
