Top Things to do at SeaWorld Orlando for Non-Roller Coaster Riders


SeaWorld Orlando prides itself on having a fantastic roller coaster lineup, and they should be proud of their current and growing collection. Mako, Manta, and Pipeline: The Surf Coaster are just a few of the thrill rides offered, with a brand new coaster, Penguin Trek, expected to open this Spring. 

But what if roller coasters aren’t your thing, or you have a family with little ones who are not quite ready for these intense thrills? No need to worry! SeaWorld Orlando has plenty of activities available for guests of all ages.

Aquariums & Habitats

There are over 15 different habitats around SeaWorld Orlando for guests to observe and enjoy. They are easy to access and boast an abundance of viewing areas, ensuring everyone gets a front-row seat to the mesmerizing marine wonders. Some of these habitats are strategically located alongside major attractions. So, if part of your group wants to ride a coaster, but some do not, there is something nearby for them to check out.

For example, Shark Encounter is just steps away from Mako, while the Manta Aquarium perfectly complements (you guessed it) Manta. Other aquariums and habitats include Pacific Point Preserve, SeaWorld Rescue Center, Wild Arctic, Flamingo Cove, and one of my personal favorites, the Dolphin Nursery. There is something for everyone!

Events & Concerts

SeaWorld Orlando is always ready for a celebration, offering something exciting and festive throughout almost the entire year.

The park is kicking off 2024 with one of its first events – Seven Seas Food Festival. This event offers cuisine from around the world and live performances that you won’t want to miss! During the summer, check out Bands, Brews & BBQ – a celebration that brings together the perfect trio: fantastic music, flavorful brews, and mouthwatering barbecue. Enjoy live concerts on selected dates throughout the event, all included in the price of admission.

One of SeaWorld’s most anticipated events of the year is Howl-O-Scream. This scary, separately-ticketed event is not for the faint of heart. Brave the mazes and scare zones, and check out some great food! If the intensity of Howl-O-Scream isn’t your speed, or you are looking for a more lighthearted autumnal event for little ones, be sure to check out Halloween Spooktacular during normal hours for some family-friendly fun. The best part is that Halloween Spooktacular is included with daytime admission

At the end of the year, the Christmas Celebration is one not to miss; with its festive foods and jolly shows, everyone will have a blast. Discover what’s happening during your stay by checking our full event listing here and ensure you don’t miss any exciting experiences awaiting you!
