SeaWorld Orlando is the smallest of the three major theme parks in central Florida but don’t let its lesser size fool you. What this park lacks in size, it delivers in enormous aquatic entertainment. If you are traveling with children, SeaWorld Orlando is a must-see. After spending a few days at the larger parks, SeaWorld will give you and your family members a break from the long lines associated with theme rides. SeaWorld Orlando has lesser rides but an abundance of popular shows, such as “One Ocean”, starring the infamous Shamu.
SeaWorld has a setup unique to any other theme park in the world: one third of SeaWorld is dedicated as a theme park, one third encompasses a marine animal zoo and the final third is set up to be a marine animal hospital.
Aquatica is Sea World Orlando’s version of a full scale water park. It is truly fun for the whole family with something for everyone including wave pools, rides and more.
Discovery Cove is a unique hands-on park within SeaWorld that offers a unique vacation experience! Animal and aquatic lovers of all ages should experience this once in a lifetime opportunity.

Why Is SeaWorld Orlando Special?
SeaWorld’s philosophy is to educate the public about marine wildlife and how to preserve it for future generations. Before you visit, you might want to read the overview of the park and the history of SeaWorld Orlando. Reading these two articles, will give you a better understanding of SeaWorld.
There are many attractions and special events which provide a refreshing and distinctive experience for families. Many of the animals you will see at SeaWorld have been injured at sea and the doctors on staff at SeaWorld rescued them from disastrous consequences. After their rehabilitation, many of the animals were not fit to return to the wild so SeaWorld developed shows around them meant to bring clarity and attention to the fates of these beautiful creatures.
