SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Adventures

The best way to do SeaWorld Orlando

2017 SeaWorld Complete Guide

 

SeaWorld is one of the last maritime amusement parks left in the nation. It’s an aquatic park in Orlando that can be done as a half-day or whole-day park. This depends on your goals for that day. SeaWorld Orlando is stunning and is in the same family as Busch Gardens.

When approaching the park gates, you’ll see a watery entrance reminding you of a gorgeous bay in San Diego. Once in the gates, you experience watery thrills, hear tropical noises, and see colorful topiary displays.

SeaWorld usually opens at 9:00 a.m. and closes at 6:00 p.m.; however, during the peak summer days the park may be open until 10:00 p.m.

2017 Busch Gardens Tampa Bay Complete Guide

Thinking about making a solo trip out to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay anytime soon? This wild and adventurous theme park is known to have some of the best roller coasters and thrill rides in Florida. Formerly known as the Dark Continent, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay invites you to seek adventures in the lush and mysterious lands of Africa.

I have so many fond memories of this magnificent theme park. It was the first time I had rode a roller coaster, Python, and it was the first park I was able to explore on my own. Busch Gardens was also a place where I created great memories with my large family, being that it was a much more affordable theme park for families to attend together.

Busch Gardens was opened in Tampa, Florida on March 31, 1959 by the Anheuser-Busch company as a free animal attraction alongside a brewery. It has since become a 335-acre theme park divided into African-themed regions: Egypt, Congo, Birds Garden, Jungala, Morocco, Nairobi, Pantopia, the Cheetah Hunt area, Sesame Street Safari of Fun, and Stanleyville that can be done in one day.

Mako Ride Highlight and Review

Mako’s…fast, no really fast, no SUPER FAST!

Smooth with more airtime than you can handle in one coaster. If it’s anything like the now famous (or infamous) shark, the Mako, then we need to stay out of the water.
