SEAWORLD Part 1
If you love sealife, fast rides and beautiful scenery, then SeaWorld is for you. This is one place that is a “must visit” for us on every single trip to Orlando. From the minute you enter the park and you have your photo taken by one of the official photographers, you just know you are in for a fun packed day. There are plenty of ticket variations available including the Orlando Flexticket avaialble from this site, just follow one of the links above to see what options are available to you and your family.
We usually pick up a park map, head for the Restrooms to make sure that everyone is set for the first part of our day at SeaWorld. Having young twins makes the Restroom trip a must do that you are not searching for them later on.
We usually study the times of the main shows, which for us is the Shamu Adventure, Blue Horizons (Dolphins) and Wild Artic. The twins also love Dolphin Cove and Stingray Lagoon. Once we have familiarised ourselves with the show times, off we go to the Dolphin Nursery.
This as the name suggests is where SeaWorld raise their baby dolphins, a curator is always at hand to explain how they raise the baby dolphins and regularly give talks on them. This is a great photo oppurtunity for you budding photographers.
Then its the Penguin Encounter, once you enter this exhibition, and the familiar music hits your ears, it is hard not to fall in love with these animals, all stood there in their little black and white suits, they now have more than 200 penguins for you to see. Their simulated surroundings enable you to see them diving and swimming in the freezing conditions of their natural habitat. The habitat is similar to the Antarctic with its icy water and rocky surroundings, the penguins feel quite at home here.
To make them feel more at home, SeaWorld produce 6,000 pounds of snow, this falls daily inside the naturalistic habitat There are several types of penguins here, these include king penguin, gentoo penguin, chinstrap penguin and the rockhopper penguin.
Two areas for viewing make it an ideal place to get out of the warm florida sunshine, one is a 120 ft moving standon / walkon belt in front of their habitat, the second is a slightly raised area where you can stand and take some wonderful photo’s of the Penguins and other birds. There’s also an interactive section once you leave the viewing area
