Famous (or, perhaps more accurately these days, notorious) for the Shamu show, SeaWorld remains one of Orlando’s perpetually popular theme parks. And even though trainers no longer enter the water to ride and dive with the orcas as they once did, there are many other animal attractions, roller coasters, and kiddie playgrounds to add to your hit list here. The floorless Kraken roller coaster and exciting water ride Journey to Atlantis are among the park’s top thrill rides. And other beloved attractions include the penguin exhibit, sea lion show, and underwater shark tunnel that you can stroll through for toothy views.

Rides, shows and attractions keep the nonstop fun going at this aquatic-themed park 90 minutes from Port Canaveral. Thrills include the Kraken floorless roller coaster, which reaches heights of more than 46 meters (150 feet), and the Journey to Atlantis water coaster, where guests happily get soaked. Watch a sea lion comedy adventure or the killer whale show. Attractions feature manatees, sea turtles, dolphins, seals and underwater tunnel views of sharks on the move.
