Orlando, Florida, United States of America
SeaWorld parks are owned by the same company as the Busch Gardens parks. The quality of this company’s parks is superior. As you could easily infer from the name, SeaWorld is a theme park that enables guests to explore life in the ocean in fun and fascinating ways. There are three locations, with the one in Orlando, Florida, being convenient to several other major attractions. In days gone by, these parks were solely focused on exhibits and shows. While these were (and still are) spectacular, the addition of the rides, which these now boast, has been welcomed enthusiastically by park-goers.
One of the rides at SeaWorld Orlando is called the Manta. This roller coaster is designed to simulate the underwater flight of manta rays. This is accomplished by inverting riders face down in a horizontal position throughout the duration of the ride. This is interesting, because when you go ‘upside-down’, you are actually face up! You even get wet on this ride.
The live animal shows are another highlight of any trip to SeaWorld, but do not expect to stay dry there either!
