Fly Like a Manta Ray
Manta Roller Coaster at SeaWorld Orlando
Speaking of Manta, be sure to give it a try if you haven’t yet! Find out what it’s like to spin, glide, skim, and fly like a giant ray when you experience the only flying roller coaster of its kind in Florida.

Use Our Child Swap Service
If not everyone in your family is ready for coaster thrills, you’ll appreciate our rider switch service. Ask the first Attractions Ambassador you encounter at the ride, and they’ll explain how you can take turns so no one misses out on the fun.

Feel the Wonder of Stingray Lagoon
There’s space for everyone in your group to step up and feel a stingray glide past as they lap the lagoon. Our Animal Ambassadors are close by to encourage you to extend your hand, and to share facts about these fascinating creatures that are just as curious about you.

Enjoy Live Family-Friendly Presentations
Check out Dolphin Adventures, an all-new presentation where you’ll explore the exciting world of bottlenose dolphins in a way you’ve never experienced before. Then make your way to the all-new Sea Lion & Otter Spotlight for an educational and funny presentation featuring California sea lions and Asian small-clawed otters.

Brave Mako, Our Can’t-Miss Coaster
Mako Roller Coaster at SeaWorld Orlando
If you’re a fan of coasters (and we suspect you are!), you need to dive deep into Mako. Begin your excursion in a shipwreck near Shark Wreck Reef. Learn how sharks are uniquely positioned to locate their prey. Then get ready to drop, dive, and glide just like sharks on the hunt.

Discover Sharks Underwater Grill
Did someone say sharks? One of the best-kept secrets in the park is Sharks Underwater Grill. This table-service restaurant features land and sea favorites, but the food won’t be the only thing capturing your attention. Check out the shark aquarium running the entire length of the restaurant, where you might see an animal who’s just as hungry as you are! Reservations are not required (but it helps). And if you’re short on time, you can still stop by the walk-up bar for a beer or cocktail.

Dine with Orcas
We don’t know about you, but we love hearty meals! And SeaWorld happens to have one of the most unique all-you-can-eat experiences you’ll find. At Dine with Orcas, you’ll enjoy an endless assortment of appetizers, salads, entrées, and desserts. But the main event is when our trainers bring our orcas over to your behind-the-scenes spot at Bayside Stadium!
