Sea World is one of the World’s most popular marine theme parks and it features some incredible marine life, from the Shamu killer whale show, to dolphins and sharks. A one day adult ticket for this park is $82 – although that includes a second day ‘free’ (within 14 days).
In addition to the theme park is Aquatica; Sea World’s water park, which requires a separate entrance fee of $50 for an adult ticket. You can also book this with Sea World, for $125 on the gate for 14 days of unlimited use. You can also get 14 days unlimited admission to both of these parks for £77 here in the UK with the 2-park ticket.
Busch Gardens is owned by the same company. This is located in Tampa Bay and requires either a car or pre-booked transportation to get to – a taxi will be expensive! This theme park offers both thrill rides and access to exotic animals – in a similar way to Disney’s Animal Kingdom. An adult ticket for this park is $78, on the gate. You can also combine it with either Sea World or Aquatica and get 14 days admission for $135, or £80 if bought advance here in the UK.
Discovery Cove is a much smaller park with restricted visitor numbers and gives visitors access to dolphin and bird interactions, beaches and snorkeling, including 30 minutes swimming with dolphins. This is a one day visit but includes 14 days admission to one of Sea World, Aquatica or Busch Gardens. You book this experience for a specific date. Booked in the UK, it will cost you £151 per person, including the swim, or £93 without the swim. You can also upgrade to have 14 days unlimited admission to Sea World, Aquatica and Busch Gardens for £181 with the swim or £123 without it.
If you are considering spending time at Universal Orlando, in addition to the Sea World parks, you may also want to consider the FlexTicket.
