This was the best dolphin show I have ever seen. It was a dramatic combination of animals and people. After 18 months in production and 9 months of construction at Dolphin Stadium, SeaWorld released "Blue Horizons" on Saturday, May 29, 2010. The show incorporates dolphins, pilot whales and a rainbow of exotic birds. The action takes place below and above the water. There is a cast of aerialists and acrobats dressed in bright costumes symbolizing the sky and the sea who are responsible for the air show. While these characters sail across the sky and rush the stage, the real stars of the show are under the surface. The dolphins and pilot whales leap from the water. Then, crowned African cranes, black vultures and other birds fly over the audience. To create "Blue Horizons," SeaWorld collaborated with the most ingenious art experts, joining the theatrical extravagance with the feats of animals and trainers. The original soundtrack of "Blue Horizons" was recorded by the Seattle Symphony Orchestra.
Sea World is stepping up and has joined the bandwagon of the attractions with the Manta, the Kraken and Journey to Atlantis. Flying with Manta Raya will mount horizontally, face down, and go flying through the sky and over a lake at 90 km/h. Before the tour, you will pass through a great aquarium habitat. Elevating from 43 m to 35 m, you'll even come in to contact with the water surface. It opened in summer 2009, Manta is one of the biggest attractions of SeaWorld and one of the best roller coasters in Orlando.
When you come to SeaWorld, you're obviously coming to sea marine life and, without doubt, Shamu. In view of the great demand rides and roller coasters, SeaWorld decided to build a new attraction in June 2000. Based on the mythical creature that Poseidon had caged deep into the sea, Kraken roller coaster is about 40 meters heigh and from there you start to go round and round (up to 7 loops) at speeds of up to 105km per hour. It's a short attraction, it only takes about 3 minutes from start to finish.
In "Journey to Atlantis", you'll visit the mythical city guarded by mermaids found on the docks. You climb aboard a Greek fishing boat and take a 6 minute tour with a drop of 60 feet. The game makes you feel like you're making big curves and experiencing floods, with many dark passages and steep descents. The route is not bad and you get wet like it or not, some parts of the boat get more wet than others. To enter you must measure 1.07 meters.
