SeaWorld Orlando is one of the top theme parks in Orlando’s world-renowned tourism scene. Not only will you have a ton of fun at this fantastic theme park, but you will also learn a thing or two about the marine animals that call it home. If you are looking for the top attractions to experience while you’re here, use this guide!
Swooping over sea and sky, Manta inspires riders with incredible underwater animal habitats. It then soars them face-down, in a horizontal position, aboard a manta-inspired flying coaster. As is the case of most of SeaWorld’s attractions, Manta is an exhibit as well, showcasing stingrays and other exotic animal life.
An exhilarating roller coaster, Kraken speeds up to 65 miles per hour and reaches a height of 151 as it loops its way high over Serpent’s Lagoon. The park’s first roller coaster, Kraken is a coral teal, floorless beast that takes riders through a trough of inversions.
Mako is the third major roller coaster at SeaWorld Orlando. It’s a very different beast from its two predecessors, Kraken and Manta. It’s 200-foot tall and uses every bit of that height to move its train at speeds exceeding 70 miles an hour.
