Being in the theme park ticket business I am bombarded on a daily basis with questions about budget traveling. Many people know that Orlando is not very budget friendly! One part stands out above the rest and that park is Seaworld Orlando. It’s very expensive to go to Disney or Universal these days and average ticket costs can be over $120 a day. The worst thing about that is you’re paying that much money to be in a crowded environment where people don’t seem to be very happy. Now take SeaWorld for example, here you can go for a day for around $83 per person and have some of the most beautiful scenery to enjoy throughout your day.
Not only do they have the most beautiful parking Central Florida but they also have some of the coolest animals on the planet here! I wish try to tell people to take a good look at the Sea World parks. They actually have four here in Central Florida. The first and most popular of course to see world, followed up by Busch Gardens in Tampa and now they have two awesome water parks to cool off at on a hot Florida summer day. The biggest and most popular one is Aquatica and the other one is Discovery Island which sits next to their Tampa theme park Busch Gardens.
A budget traveler who wanted to get the most out of a vacation would probably take a look at their all new 14 day unlimited ticket that includes free parking. This would get a person into all four of their parks with free transportation to Tampa and free parking at any other of their parks. This ticket is only $148. I’ll take a good look at Disney and Universal and see how much they’re charging and this doesn’t even include a water park or parking fees. Current parking fees at the other parks are up to $20 a day.
For that kind of money I better be whisked off like a pharaoh from Egypt. When you stop and do the math this is only about a dollar 50 a day and comes with free transportation to Busch Gardens. So at the end of the day, the folks over here have really made it possible to have a great and memorable vacation on a budget.
There are some great theme parks in Central Florida but SeaWorld Orlando sticks out for its price. If you’re traveling to Florida on a budget and are looking for something that will entertain you for a whole day while giving you the most visually beautiful backdrop, in this park is for you. See world has been around for a long time here in Orlando, and has been around for almost as long as Walt Disney World. People have been coming to see dolphins, ride roller coasters and witness a real live orca since 1973.
And this has given this very unique theme park plenty of time to grow beautiful plants and exotic trees. If you’re the kind a traveler like I am, I like a little bit of both worlds. I like a little bit of excitement followed up by natural beauty. There is nothing like walking in and smelling this sweet smells of gardenia, plumeria and other exotic flowers that seem to always be in bloom. The landscaping and attention to detail is absolutely magnificent. I have never seen anything close to it at any of the other local theme parks including Disney.
They must have an army of horticulture experts because everything there looks so beautifully manicured and spot on. Among the hustle and bustle of some of their pathways, they have managed to make little Zen areas for one to go off and escape the masses. All one has to be as a lover of beautiful things in the will to look. Many times I have taken my family over; I take my camera and just take beautiful pictures of flowers. They have some of the most beautiful hibiscus plants I have ever seen and thousands of the sweetest gardenias I have ever smelled.
Maybe the plant these plants in order to keep the smell down of travelers and the occasional sardine from the sea lion area. Nonetheless it is one of the most beautiful parks for one to go to who wants a little bit of both worlds.
Summer cannot come fast enough to SeaWorld Orlando. And the reason why is because Orlando is about to get the largest tallest fastest roller coaster in the state. See world already has some serious arsenal but adding this one will be the cherry on top! When News broke that they were going to be bringing this behemoth us to Central Florida, everyone set up in their seats and listened. Set to open June 10, 2016 they have already had a few media events were they fired up the ride for photos and videos.
From what I have seen it will pretty much in golf the whole back of their theme park that sets up next to Central Florida Parkway. You can see it all the way from interstate for it almost looks like it is even with their sky tower observation platform. The roller coaster will climbed to 200 feet and then set riders off on a 73 mph ride along a massive steel masterpiece that they are calling a hyper coaster. Next time you’re driving down the highway rolled on your window and stick your arm out and this is pretty much about before she will feel on the first drop of Mako.
The one thing that really stands out about Mako and makes it very different from all of the roller coasters in Central Florida is that you will only be held in by a lab restraint. Most of the other roller coasters put you in a full body harness with overhead shoulder straps. This will not be the case for Mako. Designers wanted to add a bit of excitement and I think they have accomplished it by doing this. If you have ever been to sea world Orlando the new roller coaster will be in the back of the park and over where there shark encounter exhibit is.
The actual roller coaster will come out and over the sharks attraction well spectators can sit and watch riders scream overhead. Having this type of roller coasters sure to bring travelers over from the other theme parks for an afternoon and take part in some record-breaking while exploring one of Orlando’s most beautiful attractions. Lately see world has been in the spotlight and had a little bit of downtime but lately they have been on the up and up and I look forward to visiting this June to ride this one-of-a-kind masterpieces!
The Official Ticket Center ~ Turning 50 is a big achievement. And the achievement only gets bigger and more exciting if it is for a world famous theme park company. Back in May 2005 when the first of the Disney Parks turned fifty, fans were just stunned with the biggest and longest Birthday celebration in the history of Theme Parks ever. The 18-months long, multi-park festival under the masthead-Happiest Celebration on Earth had rocked the world then. Today once again we are almost on the doorstep of another celebration of such great magnitude. But this time instead of Disney we have the SeaWorld Parks as the host under the banner-Sea of Surprises. We are very excited to know that the SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment Co. is celebrating its five-decades of successful journey of entertaining guests with unique marine experiences.
The original SeaWorld Park in San Diego is turning 50 early next year. And the company is all set to commemorate the special occasion with a robust, 18-month long, multi-park anniversary celebration starting March 2014. For the SeaWorld fans it is all about celebrating a Sea of Surprises now. Whether you are visiting the SeaWorld San Diego, or the Orlando Park or San Antonio for that matter, the spirit of celebration will be alive and experienced everywhere throughout the year and beyond.

Fans can expect all kinds of exciting, adorable and hilarious activities, including new interactive experiences, spectacular shows and performances, extreme and more up-close marine encounters and last but not the least exclusive interactions with the SeaWorld Surprise Squad.
Another major highlight of the celebration includes the already announced Explorer’s Reef which is intended to change the pristine front gate concept of the San Diego Park forever. Guest will enter the park through a giant wave sculpture, which leads to the Explorer’s Reef – designed to make you feel as if walking on the bottom of the ocean. The new entry plaza will also feature four touch – pools, where visitors will have close encounters with variety of marine creatures like never before.
Moreover, at the Busch Gardens Tampa, the celebration is expected to reach new heights with a new ride experience named Falcon’s Fury. The world’s first face-down drop tower is intended to make you fall straight down from a 335 feet height at the speed of the fastest animal on the Earth. Finally, with all the good things happening and the new attractions and surprises coinciding the mega anniversary celebration, we have the most special SeaWorld experiences ahead.
