SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment’s Retired Attractions

Hey Thrill Seekers,

Of course, we have looked at Disney and Universal’s retired attractions so there is only one other place to look…SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment! Anheuser Busch (better known as Budweiser, Abby’s favourite drink) bought SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment in 1989.

During the ownership time’s of Anheuser Busch, there was a hospitality lounge where you would get free beer samples and be able to see Clydesdales whilst sipping your beer!

In 1992 they introduced their first simulator ride to SeaWorld Orlando, Mission: Bermuda Triangle, based on the real life Bermuda Triangle (Devil’s Triangle). This was then re-themed into Wild Arctic which was combined with the amazing animal exhibit when you exit the ride. Here you can view the gorgeous Beluga whales and walruses.

Wild Arctic is also known for having seasonal changes every so often including turning into The Polar Express at Christmas time! Although this wasn’t seen last year, you never know if it will return! I hope so because I love The Polar Express!

SeaWorld used to have a fairly large penguin habitat which was upgraded into Antarctica: The Empire of the Penguin a trackless dark ride in 2013. You’ll meet Puck the Penguin and be able to follow him on his adventures around the Antarctic. You can even choose whether you would like a ‘mild’ or ‘wild’ experience!

Once you disembark from the ride, you’ll enter into the breathtaking penguin exhibit. When I say breathtaking, it literally will take your breath away with the freezing cold as well as the beautiful penguins! Some might call this a ‘2 for 1’ attraction, with the ride and the animal exhibit. Another 2 for 2 attraction is Manta. It opened in 2009 and has one of, if not the smoothest tracks in the world and is a one-of-a-kind ride with riders taunted by a head-first, face-down inverted nose dive. At the end of the ride you have the Manta Aquarium and the Stingray Lagoon.

SeaWorld is also known for it’s many stunning shows. The most popular and well known show has got to be One Ocean where you can capture Orca’s performing the most amazing flips and somersaults. One Ocean opened in 2011 after Believe was there from 2006.

Over in Tampa Bay, you can visit Busch Gardens which is also part of SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment!

Python was the park’s first roller coaster that opened in 1976 with corckscrew and U-turns. Python was demolished in 2006 to make way for Jungala.

Busch Gardens also had African Queen Boat Ride which closed in 1989 to make way for Tanganyika Tidal Wave which is still in the parks to date so you can get a soaking on a hot, sunny day!  Crazy Camel was a coaster that closed in 2003 to be replaced by Sand Serpent which is also still around today.

Sandstormer was an oribter ride that was running from 1980 all the way through to 2013 before they took it down to make way for Falcons Fury which opened in 2014. Not only that, but there was Rhino Rally that opened in 2001, another water boat ride but this one was closed down for Cheetah Hunt to open in 2011.

The one ride that most people know about closing down in 2015 has to be Gwazi. I think me and Gwazi had a love hate relationship like most people! At 90 feet tall it was the park’s only wooden roller coaster!


SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment also own Aquatica and Discovery Cove however Aquatica being their newest park, nothing has yet been replaced and Discovery Cove is already perfect just the way it is! 🙂

What else can you think of that’s no longer at any of these parks that maybe you’re happy are no longer there, or that you’re sad to see them gone?

Discovery Cove’s Top Attraction’s 2016

Hey Thrill Seekers,

The top attraction at Discovery Cove for 2016 was a no brainer. Of course it was Dolphin Lagoon. This may have something to do with the once in a life time opportunity to swim with dolphins!

If you opt for the swim package at Discovery Cove you get the incredible experience of meeting, interacting and swimming with a beautiful bottlenose dolphin in Dolphin Lagoon. This will definitely be the highlight of your day and maybe even your whole holiday!

discovery cove

From the feedback we have received by those of you who have visited Discovery Cove I can see why it has come out on top and put perfectly by one of our customers who recently visited:

” The most wonderful day. Can”t put into words how enjoyable the whole day was. Swimming with the dolphins is just an incredible experience.”

Second Place: Dolphin Swim Experience – Takes place within Dolphin Lagoon – a unforgettable experience!

Third Place: Grand Reef – Snorkel with thousands of fish, rays and sharks in this 2.5 acre tropical world.


Fourth Place: Wind Away River – This is one of the most relaxing things to do when in Orlando – my tip is to grab one of the floats before embarking on your adventure for full relaxation!

Fifth Place: Explorers Aviary – A fantastic opportunity to feed beautiful birds right from the palm of your hands.

I am sooo jealous of anyone who had the chance to visit and swim with dolphins this year but in my opinion you voted a very respectable winner!

A day at Discovery Cove

Hey Thrill Seekers,

Ever wondered what it’s actually like at Discovery Cove? Well wonder no more! A lot of people assume it’s just a park that you can visit if you want to swim with the dolphins. Wrong! There is so much more at Discovery Cove that will amaze you from start to finish.

The park only allow 1300 guests per day so you don’t get the overcrowding, meaning less stress and a great place to relax.

Swimming with the dolphins is completely optional as we offer non swim packages as well as swim packages. If you select the non swim package you will be able to do everything in the park other than go in the dolphin lagoon. If you select the swim package, you will be allocated a time slot to go down and be introduced to your trainer. They will then walk you down to the dolphin lagoon so you can meet your dolphin, kiss them, hug them and rub them before experiencing your once in a lifetime, one-on-one swim.


Why not head over to the grand reef and snorkel with some of the most beautiful fish and if you’re brave enough, come face to face with a shark underwater (behind glass of course). If you like exploring you can take a peek at the reef’s islands and hidden grotto’s.

Discovery Cove have their freshwater oasis where you can get up close and personal with otters and marmosets while wading, wandering and floating around the water-filled trails. You will be able to see some amazing discoveries the more you search.

Visit the free-flight aviary and feed some of the beautiful, tropical birds while they soar above and around you in their natural habitat.


Float around the wind-away river past the sandy beaches, through the rain forest, beneath the waterfalls and through the underwater cave. Behind the waterfalls you will also find yourself in part of the aviary with the birds flying all around you.

Don’t forget, Discovery Cove is all inclusive so you can take advantage of the unlimited food and drink (alcoholic too, believe it or not) at the Laguna Grill. Along with you day at Discovery Cove you will also receive your complimentary hire of a mask, snorkel, wetsuit/vest, towels, lockers, beach umbrellas, sun loungers and hammocks.

Now what reason could you possibly have that would make you not want to visit Discovery Cove? I’m pretty sure there’s no reason at all, so get yourself down there 😉

Day 3 – Discovery Cove

Hey Thrill Seekers,

Every day this week we’ve been eagerly awaiting a Snap from our very own Louise who is currently on Holiday in Florida. A Snap is one of the features of our new iPhone app which we launched last week.

A Snap is a great way of sharing your Orlando moments with friends, family and in Louise’s case, work colleagues. You can view Louise’s other Snap’s here Day 1 and Day 2.

Day 3 was particularly special for Louise as it was her first ever visit to Discovery Cove and a chance for her to fulfil her lifelong ambition to swim with a dolphin.


To say Louise was excited is an understatement OMG, Best Day Ever and I Love IT were just a few of the adjectives she used to describe her day. As you can see from the Snap above Louise and her new friend Catolina got on very well…

Amongst the millions of guests that have visited Discovery Cove to enjoy the once in a lifetime experience of swimming with dolphins, Orlando’s all-inclusive hidden paradise – twice voted the world’s top amusement park in the TripAdvisor Traveller’s Choice Awards – has also welcomed a host of celebrity fans including Olympic diver Tom Daley, One Direction star Liam Payne and footballer John Terry.

DC - Liam Payne

The park’s lush tropical setting has been used for more than 3,000 marriage proposals since it in opened in 2000 – that’s approximately 200 a year on average – many of which were made with the help of a playful bottlenose dolphin.

Discovery Cove’s leading veterinarians have also helped deliver 29 dolphin babies over the last 15 years and have even performed the world’s first C-section operation on shark which saw the successful birth of four whitetip reef sharks.

As part of SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment’s Fun2Fund campaign, $2 for every SeaWorld Parks Extra booked – including Discovery Cove’s underwater safari, SeaVenture – is donated to the non-profit SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund which benefits wildlife conservation projects across the globe.

Such amazing marine life to watch in the grand reef. Dolphin interaction was longer than 2 years ago. Trainers are very knowledgable. Fab day out for all of the family.

Kelly Reviews Discovery Cove

Hi Thrill Seekers,

It was onto Day 3. The day I had been dreaming about since I was a little girl. We were off to Discovery Cove where one could swim with a Dolphin, snorkel with tropical fish, come face to face with sharks or just relax on a white sandy beach. I was soooo excited I could have burst.

Like the other parks I have already blogged about, Discovery Cove was just a few minutes from our hotel and extremely easy to get to. This was handy as we wanted to get their early to book our slot for the Dolphin swim.

Arriving at the park, a friendly member of staff gave us a card attached to a lanyard with our names and date of visit on them for us to pop round our necks whilst in the park, they usually also take a photo to put on your card but as we had a group of 20 this may have taken some time. For guests who are over the age of 21 and want to enjoy a few alcoholic drinks whilst at the park staff will also check your ID so that your card will also state that you are above the legal drinking age. This saves you having to carry your ID around the park with you.

discovery cove lanyard

Our first stop was breakfast. All food and drink are included throughout the day. In the main restaurant breakfast is served buffet style so you can just help yourself as many times as you like. There are also snack huts scattered around the park so you can grab something on the go if you get hungry.

Our Dolphin swim was at 10:30am so it was straight to get our wetsuits. They have different styles to choose from a full wetsuit, half wetsuit or a life jacket. I personally like a challenge so it was the full wetsuit for me, and yes it was definitely a challenge to get into.

We still had a bit of time before our Dolphin swims so we grabbed a snorkel, you will find these in blue and yellow drawstring bags at the same place you get your wetsuit from. The blue sets are adult sizes and the yellow children’s – as I’m petite and got a small head I went for a yellow set.

We headed to the Grand Reef which features multiple levels of exploration suitable for all ages, from paddling tranquil, shallow waters to deep diving adventures into a tropical sunken world bursting with sea life, including over 10,000 animals, representing 125 different species of fish, rays and sharks. My experience of the Grand Reef was pretty brief as I was petrified of the stingrays they were very large so there was no chance of missing them. I did have have a little paddle trying my hardest to dodge them, at one point I thought one was coming at me so I jumped on the back of one of people in our group in order to get my feet off the floor. I’m a little embarrassed of how scared I was of them as they are no threat to anyone, so dont be like me….”a scaredy cat” there is really nothing to be worried about.

discovery cove trip

So 10.30 arrived it was finally time to do our Dolphin swim. We met with one of the trainers first who  showed us a short video full of information on Dolphins. Our lanyards had a number and letter on them which told us what group we would be in for the swim – our group was quite small with only 6 of us which was nice.

It was off to the waters to meet our Dolphin we had a young female Dolphin called Catalina she was only 7. Luckily for us she was in a good mood and ready to entertain. The trainer got her to do a few tricks before getting her to swim past us so we could reach out and touch her. To me she felt like a hard boiled egg.

We had the chance to get a few pictures with her, in groups and also on our own planting kisses on her nose. The photographer was fantastic and got the most beautiful photos of our experience. We were able to buy these at great prices and bring them home to show off to friends and family.

For the one to one swim with Catalina we was given the option to do it in shallow or deep water. Everyone in our group were ok swimmers so we all choose to do it in deep water.

For anyone doing the swim you encounter the same experience doing it in shallow water as you would deep water so if you are not a great swimmer and would rather do it in shallow water then don’t think you will be missing out in anyway as you won’t be. I am not a great swimmer myself but was still able to do it in the deep water, you only have to tread water for a minute (with another trainer next to you) before the Dolphin is with you.

So for the swim itself, I swam out to the deep water where one of the trainers was waiting -she gave a signal to the other trainer and I could see Catalina making her way to me, I was a little nervous as I’ve not had such a large animal swimming towards me before but it was fine as soon as she got to me she was already in position. The trainer told me to place one hand on her pectoral fin and the other on her dorsal fin and that was it she was off taking me back to shore. What an experience, I have never done anything so amazing in all my life and I will treasure that moment forever. I would highly recommend anyone going to Orlando to go to Discovery Cove and swim with a Dolphin, I cannot put into words how amazing it truly is.

discovery cove

After our swim it was just about lunch time so we went to the main eating area and enjoyed some yummy buffet food. There was so much left to do of the park and everyone wanted to do different things so we all split up. A few of us went onto Freshwater Oasis, Discovery Coves newest attraction. You can relax and explore in the very warm waters slowly swimming past Otters and Marmosets, I’ve heard the Marmosets are usually very playful but when we swam past they were pretty quiet, but they are extremely cute – so make sure you go grab a peek at them.

It was coming to the end of our day so it was a quick visit to the Explorer’s Aviary, where you can if you wish take a cup of bird food around with you given to you by a member of staff. Please be aware if you are carrying food around the birds will land on you – this is not something I was very keen on so I walked around with someone else who decided to take food and I must say it was very entertaining to watch when one of the birds landed on him and took a liking to his gold chain around his neck. I would say if it is something you would like to do then go earlier on in the day as I think the birds were stuffed when we arrived there.

So that wraps up my day in Discovery Cove and what a magical one it was.
