Here’s an overview of both parks:
SeaWorld: SeaWorld is “as real as it gets”. Prepare for an absolutely unforgettable experience at the world’s most famous aquatic park. SeaWorld Orlando boasts the best marine mammal shows on earth, informative and enlightening displays that show off marine life from the far reaches of the globe including beluga whales, dolphins, sharks, sea lions, seals, polar bears, and some world-class rides. Explore the mysterious lost city of Atlantis on a water/roller coaster combo ride, take on one of the world’s top ten roller coasters, Kraken, and then watch hilarious shows such as “Clyde and Seamore Take Pirate Island”—a LOL-worthy show put on by chubby sea lions, otters and walruses (watch the animals creatures search for treasure)! Or check out “A’Lure: The Call of the Ocean”—a captivating tale of the Sea Sirens, featuring aerial tumblers and silk yo-yo artists. SeaWorld Orlando brings you the best of the seven seas, and you won’t take for granted the attention to detail that has gone into making this park one of the country’s most-visited attractions.
Busch Gardens: Just over an hour west of SeaWorld Orlando near Florida's beautiful Gulf Coast, you'll find yourself on the edge of Africa at Busch Gardens in Tampa Bay. Experience up-close encounters with amazing animals, lose yourself in fragrant subtropical gardens, take an unforgettable safari across the Serengeti Plains, test your courage on pulse-pounding roller coasters, take in a stage show, and colorful live entertainment all year long. There is nothing gimmicky about this park’s African theme—it’s done well, and the animal preserves are a beautiful and tasteful addition to the rides and shows. Check out Jungala—an area of the park featuring Bengal tigers (get within inches of them), a zip-line through a rainforest, and two high-speed roller coasters! Thrill-seekers should head immediately to SheiKra—a blazing fast roller coaster that blasts you up 200 feet, holds you at the edge of a true 90-degree drop, then drops you straight to the ground at 70mph! Cool yourself off at Tanganyika Tidal Wave—a pleasant ride that takes a high-speed turn and drops you 55 feet into a massive pool, soaking innocent bystanders passing over the bridge above.
These two parks are excellent choices for nature enthusiasts, those wanting to get in touch with Florida’s flora and fauna, and anyone hoping for a multi-sensory, passively educational experience, and this flexible pass lets you see both.
