Last fall, SEA LIFE Orlando offered Mermaid Weekends, and it was so much fun, the mermaids will be returning for a limited time this summer.
I told you earlier this month about SEA LIFE Orlando hosting visits from the world-famous Weeki Wachee Mermaids, and last weekend, I had the chance to check it out for myself.
The lovely mermaids swam hourly throughout the day in the aquarium’s Pacific Ocean tank, to the delight of guests of all ages. The children were especially awed by the aquatic ladies, who interacted with them through the glass.
SEA LIFE Orlando welcomes the world-famous Mermaids of Weeki Wachee Springs State Park to its aquatic wonderland weekends through Oct 21, 2018.
SEA LIFE Orlando Aquarium has announced the arrival of four, baby blue spotted sting rays, and to celebrate, the attraction is hosting a special baby shower for Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies.
From now until Father’s Day (June 17, 2018), the Aquarium will be collecting items for Winnie Palmer Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
Guests who donate a gift from the NICU baby registry will receive 25-percent off of regular admission to the Aquarium. Items on the registry include:
Captain Barnacles and Kwazii of The Octonauts, a popular animated children’s television show on Disney Jr., will visit SEA LIFE Orlando Aquarium weekends September 16 though October 30.
The Octonauts are a team of undersea adventure heroes who rescue and protect sea creatures in trouble. During each television episode, viewers are able to learn about a variety of marine life as The Octonauts study facts about sea animals and their ocean habitats.
It’s been over a week since The Orlando Eye shut down for what a Merlin rep called “required maintenance,” and there is still no re-opening date.
The 400-foot observation wheel has closed several times since its opening in May for various repairs, but its usually only taken a day or two at most to reopen.
In a city full of attractions and theme parks, one thing Orlando has been lacking is a quality aquarium. With the opening this week of SEA LIFE Aquarium, that is no longer the case.
We had the chance to check it out during a recent media preview, and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
Upon entering SEA LIFE, you pass a photo op area. Photos taken here will later be digitized into CGI settings like being underwater with fish, then ready for purchase at the end of the attraction. You then enter a cute round theater, with a video running on the ceiling.
