My Favourite Gentler Rides

There are so many rides in Orlando’s Theme Parks and I thought I would just share some of my favourite gentler rides with you. These are particularly suitable for younger children and if my Mother is anything to go by also suitable for Grandparents! ...

How did Shamu get her name?

I cannot imagine a trip to Seaworld without a visit to the amazing Shamu stadium to see the killer whales, or orcas, perform. This enormous arena can seat up to 5, 500 people, and is the venue for the spectacular and very popular shows, ‘Believe’ and...

Busch Gardens for Thrlll Seekers

Nowhere else in Florida rivals Busch Gardens for thrill rides and for the serious coaster fanatic it is well worth the 60 minute drive from the Orlando area. It really is a very easy drive over to Tampa - the park is well signposted and we have gener...

Orlando’s Alternative Parks

For the vast majority of visitors to the Orlando area the main attraction that draws them to this region is the abundance of theme parks. If however, you are on your second, third or fourth trip you may feel that you need to do something a little bit...

Getting Wet at Universal and Seaworld.

You cannot visit the many theme parks in Orlando without experiencing the water rides at least once – after all, on a boiling hot summer’s day there is nothing more refreshing than getting a soaking, or so my children would have me believe. Personall...

GatorLand (12)

An interesting and local attraction for all ages. It' s a place you drive past and comment on very much like it' s nearest neighbour Tupperware HQ on the way to Costco or the Florida Mall. The time we arranged to go our plans were tha...

Odyssea at SeaWorld

“Odyssea” is a thirty-minute show, which takes place in SeaWorld’s Nautilus Theatre. This theatre seats 2, 400 guests so there should never be a problem finding a seat, even if you arrive just before the show begins. However, if you want to sit near ...

SeaWorld’s less famous animals

When someone says “SeaWorld Orlando” to you, do you instantly think of Shamu the killer whale, the dolphins or the sealion show? You probably do not realise that there are actually a lot more animals at SeaWorld other than the obvious choices. Below ...

A day at Busch Gardens

Busch Gardens is approximately an hour’s drive from Orlando down the I-4 at Tampa and is well signposted. We left the villa at 8. 30 to get there early for the park opening. A small ride on a ‘train bus’ takes you from the car park to the entrance. <...

Busch Gardens for Wimps
