Today we went to SeaWorld to see all the amazing shows and sea animals! Our first stop was the Shamu Show called 'One Ocean'. We visited the San Diego SeaWorld six years ago and its quite different now as the trainers do not go into the water with the killer whales. The show was incredible, it's amazing to think that the killer whales understand the commands of their trainers and it looks like they have such a great bond. After One Ocean we walked round to the shark exhibit with the huge tunnel that you walk through, we fed the sting rays and smaller sharks too.
We then watched the sealion, otter and walrus show, which was a funny one. It's based on a story of a pirate ship trying to find treasure. The weather was absolutely beautiful and hot so we ate lunch outside by the lake and I befriended the ducks by feeding them chips. Everyone else then went on the scary looking ride called Journey to Atlantis, which has the biggest log flume style drop I have ever seen. Our last show was Blue Horizon, which was incredible. It was full of dolphins, parrots, acrobats and more. There was so much happening it was hard to know where to watch, but it was really impressive.
We then did the new simulator ride called Empire of the Penguin, it was fun but absolutely freezing. At the end you arrive at the penguin enclosure which was even colder! I've never been so close to penguins before, they are fascinating to watch. We then went up the Sky Tower where you get an amazing view of Orlando, the sun was setting as we went up so it was really beautiful. Our last SeaWorld experience was the Wild Artic ride, which is also a simulator, it makes you think you are flying over the Artic on a helicopter through a heavy storm.
We had dinner reservations at The Rainforest Cafe in Downtown Disney, it's so much bigger and better than the London one! I had ribs (again) and everyone else had shrimp. We came back to the house for an earlier night as tomorrow we are off to Disney Hollywood Studios!
