Florida’s three SeaWorld parks boast new, world-class rollercoasters and plenty of child-friendly attractions this summer, ensuring lots of excitement for children and adults alike, with family-sized savings too.

As SeaWorld turns 60 this year, guests can enjoy year-long anniversary celebrations that include new Cirque-style shows, a special anniversary celebration parade featuring favourite costumed characters plus new limited-edition food, drinks and souvenirs. SeaWorld’s 60th anniversary campaign, ‘So Much More to Sea’, will also take visitors deeper into SeaWorld’s history, both in the parks and digitally. 

SeaWorld 60th anniversary

SeaWorld Orlando

With an already impressive array of adrenalin pumping rides, SeaWorld Orlando’s new coaster, Penguin Trek, will make pulses soar even higher. One for all the family, from small children to mums and dads, grannies and granddads,this brand-new coaster is being billed as The Ultimate Antarctic Adventure as it blends all the thrills of a theme park ride with authentic animal interaction.

The indoor-outdoor ride transports families in snowmobile-like cars through a maze of twists and turns at speeds of up to 43 mph, whisking them through a virtual Antarctic wilderness to arrive in the heart of SeaWorld’s own penguin habitat to experience the enchanting world of these feathered creatures.

Penguin Trek, which launches this spring, is SeaWorld Orlando’s eighth coaster and follows in the footsteps of Pipeline, The Surf Coaster, the world’s first ride of its kind, which opened to rave reviews a year ago.

Busch Gardens, Tampa

Busch Gardens is one of Florida’s most thrilling parks, combining world-class rollercoasters and one of North America’s largest zoos – representing more than 200 animal species. This spring the park will unveil its newest attraction, Phoenix Rising, a suspended rollercoaster, and the first coaster to feature onboard audio.

Phoenix Rising  will have guests soaring above the Serengeti Plain at more than 40 miles per hour, followed by a thrilling exploratory journey over the Pantopia region of the park, swinging them from side to side through an array of twists and turns as they’re entertained by a one-of-a-kind soundtrack. With a minimum height of just 3.5 feet (or 42 inches), the ride can be enjoyed by even little family members.

Aquatica Orlando

Award-winning Aquatica Orlando, home to 50 slides, rivers and lagoons, plus a dazzling sandy beach, has opened its newest attraction, Tassie’s Underwater Twist, which is the only waterslide experience of its kind.

The immersive ride virtually transports guests in two-person innertubes to Australia’s Shark Bay, taking them twisting and turning through a vibrant digital underwater world of luscious sea grass meadows teeming with manta rays, humpback whales, turtles, schools of colourful fish – and even the occasional shark.

Set to an inspiring orchestral score, the 129-foot-long attraction also features a synchronised video display, allowing guests to become part of the enchanting underwater world.
