SeaWorld is a total adventure park experience, combining entertainment, education and conservation. There are shows, exhibits and guided tours, as well as one of the world’s largest marine life rescue programs. SeaWorld Orlando is one of the biggest theme parks of its kind, and has attracted more than 75 million visitors since its opening.
SeaWorld Orlando is located at the intersection of Interstate 4 and the Bee Line Expressway. It is 10 minutes from Orlando and only 15 minutes from Orlando International Airport. If traveling by car, you should take exit 28 of Interstate 4 from Orlando, or exit 27A from Tampa.
SeaWorld has fun for everyone. ”Key West at SeaWorld” is only one example. Here, in a 5-acre section of
the park, you can be entertained by dolphins working with their trainers and see rare sea turtles weighing up to 300 pounds. Entertainers and musicians help create the atmosphere, and at sunset fireworks light the sky.
“Journey to Atlantis” is our largest attraction ever. Inside Atlantis, the evil spirit Allura causes your boat to drop from a height of 60 feet into the sea below. You are then pulled backwards and onto a wild, high-speed water ride. With its amazing special effects, “Journey to Atlantis” will give you the thrill of a lifetime.
SeaWorld programs combine fun with education. The new “Dolphin Interaction Program” allows you to get into a pool with dolphins, and to learn how they are cared for and trained. “To the Rescue!” is a 60-minute tour
which shows visitors the animal rescue programs of the park. For more information on these and other programs, call the Education Department at (302) 624-1423.
We’ve thought of everything at SeaWorld. We have foreign currency exchange offices and 24-hour automated teller machines. There is a 3-acre play area for children and, depending on your needs, you can choose from nine restaurants or the many snack bars and kiosks. Parking is available at $5 per car.
SeaWorld is also part of the group of Anheuser-Busch Theme Parks – a leader in conservation and education. SeaWorld has many programs to save endangered sea animals. The park protects the rare Florida manatee
and has also saved nearly 300 sea turtles since 1985. SeaWorld animal rescue team works 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
Various tickets are available to suit your needs. For all prices quoted, “children” are aged 3-9 years, while “adults” are aged 10 years and above. Under-threes enter the park free. Prices are exclusive of tax, which will
be payable on entry. A one-day ticket is $42 (adults) or $36 (children). Passes that can be used at several locations are also available. The 3-park Orlando Flex Ticket may be used for up to 7 days at SeaWorld Orlando, Wet ’n’ Wild Orlando, and Universal Studios Florida. The 4-park Flex Ticket is valid for up to 10 days at the above locations, as well as at Busch-Gardens Tampa Bay.
SeaWorld is open year-around, from 9 am to at least 7 pm. In the summer, the park’s hours are extended
