Vacation 2015- Day Two
On Monday we spent the day at SeaWorld! It had been 13 years since we had last been. The park was not busy at all. We were given fast passes through our hotel and we only had to use it one time.
Here we are at the entrance to the park. We purchased the photo package which was well worth it. It's hard for us to have pictures taken together any other way. Plus, we don't spend money through out the year having professional pictures taken. We wait until vacation.
Here is Manta. This was the first ride that we went on. I can't remember the last time that we rode a roller coaster so starting at this one was crazy. This was our fist time riding a flying coaster and it took my breath! We ended up riding it quite a few times though.
We rode the other roller coaster Kraken and also the water ride Journey to Atlantis. Both of theses rides were there when we last visited. Although Journey to Atlantis had been renovated and it was different at the end.
The newest ride Antartica Empire of the Penguin was a lot of fun and COLD. It was the the only ride that we used the fast pass on. The wait was still only 25 minutes without it but why waste a fast pass. Here we are after the ride:
Besides rides we did other fun things. Bryan fed the stingrays.
We watched dolphins play.
We watched the One Ocean Show featuring Shamu. I will never understand why I cry during this show. Maybe because it makes you realize how important conservation is. How we are destroying our seas and the creatures that live in it. It's very sad.
Bryan got to hang out with a friend and favorite bird. This is Owlfredo. A now imprinted owl that can never be released back into the wild. I think people mean well but seriously?
We also saw the dolphin show, Blue Horizons.
At the end of our day we ate with sharks at Shark Grill. The food was really good! We ordered the artichoke dip and both got the tempura shrimp. It was delicious but very costly.
After SeaWorld we went back to our hotel and met up with some friends from Lakeland. They came to our hotel and we sat in the restaurant by the pool and had cocktails. We have known Chris & Marlo for a while through the internet. This was our first time meeting them face to face. They were very nice and we had a really good time.
What a great day! SeaWorld was a blast!
