Rides & Shows in SeaWorld Orlando
Spectacular stunts, hilarious animal antics, and exhilarating thrills characterize SeaWorld’s rides and shows.
Journey to the North Pole in a highly realistic simulated helicopter flight through blizzards and avalanches. At the end of this perilous “flight,” visitors embark on an exploration of the frozen landscape.
They also meet the region’s animal inhabitants, such as giant walruses, frisky harbor seals, beautiful beluga whales, and two playful polar bears called Snow and Klondike.
Journey to Atlantis
Unpredictable drops, twists, and turns are what riders can expect from this high-speed part water and part roller coaster adventure ride – the most thrilling being a terrifying drop, almost straight down, from a height of 60 ft (18 m). Eight riders, aboard an old Greek fishing boat, are pitchforked into a battle for the lost city of Atlantis and face lugelike plunges and curves interlaced with amazing special effects as they fight their way through to safety.
Named after a giant mythical sea monster, the floorless roller coaster Kraken is one of the fastest coasters in Orlando.
Riders are taken to a height of 149 ft (45.5 m) and then dropped 144 ft (44 m), while taking seven hair-raising loops that turn them upside down – all at an incredible speed of 65 mph (104 km/h). Adding to the thrill are the open-sided seats, offering only shouder restraints as support and leaving nothing for riders to hold on to as they are hurled through the air.
One of SeaWorld’s most ambitious shows, which took nearly four years to develop and involves majestic killer whales performing stunning choreography. The show uses an elaborate three-story set, including panormaic LED screens and original music commissioned specially, which is played through nearly 100 speakers. The screens provide spectators with views of the whales from cameras above and below the water, including one camera suspended directly over the main pool.
A vivid and awesome Aunderwater adventure that encompasses both sea and sky. Spectators are immersed in the majesty of the sea at SeaWorld’s center lake, which is the stage for this spectacular featuring marine creatures on huge 60-ft (18-m) mist screens, 100-ft (30-m) fountains, fire on water, and fireworks.
