If you’re a lover of the world’s oceans or are searching for something really cool to do with the family, the new SEA LIFE Aquarium in Orlando is teaming with interactive fun – without actually taking a deep sea dive. From a 360-degree view of sharks to glowing jellyfish, surround yourself by the wonders of the oceans in this new indoor attraction located at I-Drive 360 on International Drive in Orlando.
The appeal of this unique marine experience is the way the collection of more than 5,000 sea creatures are displayed for maximum engagement with the guests. All of the exhibits are designed to bring guests in close and become totally immersed within the habitats including bubble aquariums, floor-to-ceiling displays and 180-degree tunnels sized for both adults and kids.
Your favorite will definitely be walking into the 360-degree tunnel where you will feel like you’re literally surrounded by sharks, sting rays, dozens of colorful fish and a seemingly hovering, large grouper.
You will also have the opportunity to reach into the water and feel living sea creatures in the live touch pool. Here you can touch real sea anemones, sea urchins, sea stars and a variety of small fish. The overall time spent in the aquarium can average between one to two hours. And if the kids haven’t had enough fun, they can always burn off more steam in the two-story playground.
SEA LIFE Aquarium Orlando offers a behind the scenes tour too!
