A Place to Learn and Play

Together with its neighboring Discovery Cove and Aquatica, SeaWorld Orlando is part of the larger SeaWorld Parks and Resorts Orlando. For those that love amusement style rides and attractions, SeaWorld Orlando is home to a collection of roller coasters that are sure to thrill. From Manta and Sea Carousel, to Mako and Infinity Falls—guests can enjoy the ultimate afternoon of fun. For those that are more interested in learning about marine wildlife rehabilitation and conservation, SeaWorld Orlando offers behind the scenes tours of the on-site dolphin nursery, the penguin habitat, or the manatee rehabilitation center. SeaWorld is also known for their dolphin, sea lion, and orca shows. Since facing severe public pressure in 2016 after the release of the documentary Black Fish, SeaWorld is in the process of no longer breeding captive orcas. Guests to the park will find their presentations involving killer whales are far more retrained than compared to shows visitors may have encountered in the past.
