ORLANDO, Florida (August 25, 2014) – Florida residents do not have to travel far to discover the No. 1 amusement park in the world, according to the *2014 TripAdvisor® Travelers’ Choice Awards™. Just in time for Labor Day weekend, Floridians can take advantage of an exclusive offer on a getaway where they can immerse themselves in an unforgettable day at Discovery Cove in Orlando swimming with dolphins, snorkeling with thousands of tropical fish and dozens of rays while also encountering curious marmosets and hand-feeding exotic birds.
Available now through December 2014, the all-inclusive day resort offers a Dolphin Swim Day Resort package for $219 plus tax and a Day Resort package without the dolphin swim experience, for $149 plus tax.
Plus, for an additional $49, guests can enhance their day by adding SeaVenture, an underwater walking tour where participants will feel right at home under the sea surrounded by thousands of tropical fish and rays and get up close to sharks.
Residents also receive unlimited admission to SeaWorld® Orlando and Aquatica, SeaWorld’s Waterpark, through January 31, 2015, where they can enjoy upcoming family-friendly events like SeaWorld’s Halloween Spooktacular® and SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration®. For the first time ever, guests can also embark on an adventure to Busch Gardens® Tampa for a $25 package upgrade. Unlimited park admission is also available through January 31, 2015.
This fall, guests can celebrate Halloween each weekend in October, starting Oct. 4, with SeaWorld’s Halloween Spooktacular featuring trick-or-treating, dancing with sea fairies and pumpkin fish, creating sea-themed arts and crafts and seeing amazing animals, all included with park admission. The event runs through Oct. 26.
During SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration waves of holiday spirit splash over the park while carols fill the air, a sparkling Sea Of Trees lights up the water and skaters dance on ice. With everything from Santa to Shamu®, SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration is where holiday memories are made. The event takes place select dates Nov. 22 through Dec. 31, 2014.
Across the street from Discovery Cove is Aquatica, SeaWorld’s Waterpark, offering everything from high-speed water slides and exhilarating wave pools, to tranquil beaches and remarkable animal habitats. All-new is Ihu’s Breakaway Falls™, where guests can brave a watery free-fall on Orlando’s the tallest, steepest and only multi-drop tower slide.
Guests who upgrade their package to visit Busch Gardens® Tampa are in store for the ultimate adventure. Now open, Falcon’s Fury™ is North America’s tallest freestanding drop tower at 335 feet. Like its bird of prey namesake, at the ride’s highest point, riders will pivot 90 degrees in midair to a facedown dive position. An instant later, they’ll plunge 60 mph straight down.
