With thrilling roller coasters and countless animal encounters, SeaWorld Orlando is a combination of theme park, waterpark and marine-life zoological park!
Here you can see all kind of stunning ocean-inspired shows, as well as experiencing some of the most state-of-the-art rides – and plenty of family-friendly ones too!
Pet a penguin, meet a manatee and wade among graceful manta rays. SeaWorld is even one of the few places in the world where you can interact with a friendly beluga whale!
And it’s not just about the shows and attractions – SeaWorld work tirelessly to rescue and rehabilitate marine animals like dolphins and manatees, always with the aim of returning them to the ocean. If this is not possible, they are given a new forever home at SeaWorld.
There are loads of amazing rides at SeaWorld Orlando - so here are just a few of our favourites!
Manta is the only flying roller coaster of its kind in the world; emulating the soaring, swooping, majestic ‘flight’ of the Manta ray.
A ‘vest’ harness, locking lap bar and ankle bar hold you in place as the ride car is raised and tilted, leaving you facing downwards, staring directly down at the track!
Spectacular sound effects, rushing waterfalls and elaborate lighting all add to the sensation of flying. The coaster even passes so close over water that Manta’s ‘wings’ appear to skim the surface.
Manta soars to heights of 140ft, with spectacular inversions, corkscrews and more. You’ll find yourself hurtling towards the ground, swooping high into the sky, and feeling like you’re flying at speeds of over 55mph!
Tip: After you've returned to land, don't forget to stop by Stingray Lagoon, where you can interact with some real rays as they glide just beneath the surface of their habitat's peaceful waters.
Consistently ranked one of the world’s top coasters, Kraken takes its name from the mythical sea monster which struck terror into the hearts of sailors. And true to its name, this is a beast of a ride!
Kraken is a floorless coaster – a rarity even in Orlando! – so your feet dangle free as you start with a 15-storey climb to the top, from where you have a spectacular view over the whole park.
From here, the fun really starts as you swoop at blisteringly fast pace through seven loops including a zero-gravity roll!
Do you dare enter Kraken’s lair?......
Height Restrictions: You must be 54” tall for this ride.
Journey to Atlantis is part thrilling water ride and part hold-on-to-your-hat rollercoaster ride!

Comedic sea lion duo Clyde and Seamore are back in SeaWorld’s latest show, based on an American high school.
Join the partners in crime on their last day of school before graduating to Sea Lion University. But it turns out they haven’t completed all their classes and only have one left day to finish them!
With plenty of slapstick and high-energy pranks, plus mischievous otters, a walrus and a cast of human characters, this graduation certainly won’t be going swimmingly….
You won’t believe what can happen when SeaWorld’s animal trainers turn their attention toward animals that aren't quite so exotic – until you’ve seen Pets Ahoy! Cats, dogs, ducks, pot-bellied pigs and more surprise animal guests are the stars of this crazy and uproarious show.
What really makes this show stand out is that all of the animal performers have been rescued from animal shelters and given a new home at SeaWorld.
Journey into the rarely seen, icy world of the Antarctic and experience it all through the eyes of a penguin! This first-of-its-kind family ride includes a massive penguin colony with King, Gentoo, Adelie and Rockhopper penguins.

Through the TurtleTrek 3D 360° theatre, SeaWorld shares the incredible journey of the sea turtle with its visitors.

The aim of TurtleTrek is to inspire every SeaWorld visitor to be an “Everyday Hero” and help make the world a better place by doing even the smallest things. Remember, it has to start somewhere!
