What would a theme park be without fun rides for the children? SeaWorld Orlando has no shortage of kid-friendly rides:
The Sea Carousel is in Shamu’s Happy Harbor. This classic ocean themed ride is fun for the younger visitors, as it hosts a 45-ft. wide octopus on the top, and will never disappoint.
The paddle boats are up for grabs on SeaWorld’s big central lake. The kids can tour the park on the water, or it can be a romantic ride for a couple, either way it’s a nice relaxing ride on the beautiful lake.
The Sky Tower is a 400-ft. high tower and has stood since the day the park opened in 1974. The ride is a capsule that ascends the tower, giving you a bird’s-eye view of sunny Orlando, however this ride is intended for kids over the age of 14.
In Shamu’s Happy Harbor, there are several rides fun for the whole family, such as the Ocean commotion, which is a 19-ft tug boat that rocks back and forth and side to side.
Shamu Express is a first timer roller coaster of sorts. It’s for the people that want just enough fun, as it’s not too extreme, but would be great for any kid or adult.
Swishy Fishies is a mild teacup ride for the little ones that want to spin around a large waterspout.
The Flying Fiddler is an enormous fiddler crab with eyes that light up, it acts as if it swallows 12 kids at a time, then lifts them 20-ft. in the air and jumping down through several short drops. This ride is not only a ride, it becomes an experience, and one you won’t forget for years to come.
The Wild Arctic Ride is a flight simulator that takes you through the frozen north in a helicopter. The experience is close to real, and will leave you with a surreal sensation, as you fly through the icy landscape.
Journey to Atlantis is a fun water ride that dares to thrill anyone. On a roller coaster, you will explore underwater passageways in the sunken city, then you will be plunged into the water after you reach the final gates. This ride is wild, wet, and fun for everyone.
