Sea World Orlando is no mere aquarium â€“ focusing on up close and personal interaction with dozens of species of sea animals, the park seamlessly combines education and entertainment. From nearly a dozen live shows to real hands-on interaction with some of the animals and their trainers, park visitors will get a first hand view of some of the worldâ€™s most magnificent creatures, and learn about their habitats and how to help preserve them. But donâ€™t worry! The parks feel anything but â€œeducational.â€ Alongside the majestic sights of killer whales and dolphins are plenty of super-soaker roller coasters and other family rides, kid-friendly comedy shows, an extensive Mediterranean style shopping area, and gourmet restaurants to satisfy even the pickiest theme-park goer.
A family adventure park based on the adventures of the African continent, the Busch Gardens Tampa is a real excitement for all ages. Thrilling roller coasters, safari rides, live shows, shops, and games all make a trip to the Busch Gardens Tampa an exhilarating visit. Both the adults and children will love the Serengeti Express, a replica steam train running along the rear of the Busch Gardens Tampa complex. Stopping at the Congo, Nairobi and Stanleyville areas, you get to cherish the beauty of the Busch Gardens Tampa. Then there is the park safari. Take a tram or get a private safari and enjoy the wildlife. Get near to the lions, monkeys, zebra and other wild animals in the Serengeti Plain, a 29-acre animal habitat, and an experience which makes you feel you are in the wilds of Africa.
