SEAWORLD Part 4
Journey to Atlantis
This is definitely not your usual log flume. It’s a log flume come roller coaster rolled in to one. There’s a near vertical drop of around sixty feet that seems to come from no where. I love rides like this, it keeps you guessing throughout the ride. The special effects just add to it but expect to get wet, very wet. Hold on!
Shamu Adventure and Believe
We have been visiting Orlando since 1998 and even though I have always loved dolphins, for me, they are nothing compared to the Killer Whale. The entire Shamu family are involved in this spectacular show, it always brings tears to my eyes and a lump in my throat. They never cease to amaze me. I just wish I could be the one they pick to meet Shamu and get the chance to stroke him. What a fabulous way to end your day at SeaWorld.
The show involves the trainers bringing the family members out and interacting with them, showing that they have 100% trust in these beautiful creatures. You must make sure you have your camera or camcorder, if not you will be so so disappointed at the missed photo opportunity. The stadium fills up very quick and so early planning is essential if you want to see this show.
The children love to get splashed by the Killer Whales as they swim passed and wet everyone with their fluke. Cutting through the freezing cold sea water. Although we now sit in the upper tier of the stand to avoid getting wet, not good for your electrical equipment but amazing fun for the youngsters. The breathtaking displays of power, grace and beauty will amaze you and your family.
There’s one part of the show where the trainers water ski on the backs of the Killer Whales, they then get the Killer Whale to push them under water and then both trainer and Killer Whale leap up out of the water before diving back in. Both are airborne for a brief moment and totally out of the water.
The trainer is also launched from the water by the Killer Whale in another magnificent display of power and trust. Its just amazing when you think that the largest Killer Whale they have is around twelve thousand pounds and they swim in around seven million gallons of sea water There’s also an underwater viewing area to the front of the stadium where you can see them playing, this is also a good place to take photo’s if you have a fast enough camera. By far the most amazing show you will see at SeaWorld. Memories that last a lifetime.
