Sea Life Aquarium and ICON Orlando: From the Sea to the Sky
Sharing is caring!
One of our favorite exhibits was the jellyfish wall, which changed colors at the push of a button. My camera does not do this effect justice, and it was a truly beautiful moment to see my five kiddos lined up in front of all of these amazing creatures and colors! This is just one example of the beauty and wonder that awaits you at Sea Life Orlando Aquarium.
A surprising and welcome part of Sea Life Orlando Aquarium was the playground! This multilevel equipment was a great way to get out the wiggles and was such a fun surprise around the corner. Right after this spot was the touch tank. Even if you’ve touched a sea anemone before, it really never gets old. Learning comes alive when you can touch the creatures you are learning about with your own hands.
Coming up soon, Sea Life Aquarium will have Homeschool Days from November 5-9. Be sure to visit their website to learn more about this special offer. It’s a wonderful opportunity for homeschooling families to experience all that Sea Life Aquarium Orlando has to offer and I really appreciate businesses that make an effort to reach out to homeschooling families.
Sea Life Aquarium Orlando is full of wonder, color, and engaging learning. There are interactive exhibits, feeding displays, scuba demonstrations, and much more. I was so surprised by all we discovered inside, and would highly encourage you to visit!
And what visit to ICON Orlando would be complete without a spin around the observation wheel itself? The ICON Orlando is the highest observation wheel of its kind on the East Coast. Rising 400 feet in the air, and weighing 3 million pounds, it provides gorgeous views of Orlando. We had been on ICON Orlando during the day a few years ago, but this time, we went after dark, and it was such a wonderful experience!
The views were absolutely incredible and we could even see fireworks in the distance! There are 30 capsules, which fit 15 people each, and the ride lasts about 23 minutes. There are screens inside the capsules that point out Orlando landmarks and my kids loved scrolling through these to find their favorite places around town. The capsules even have music playing and dim lighting during the evening! My husband and I grossed out the kids by dancing to the music at the top of ICON Orlando. Even with our five kids around us, it was very romantic.
ICON Orlando is an absolute must-do in Orlando. Whether you go during the day or at night, you will be mesmerized by the views of Central Florida. The best value when visiting ICON Orlando is a combination ticket, which can include Sea Life Aquarium, Madame Tussaud’s, Skeletons, or Orlando StarFlyer. When you combine these attractions, you save a great deal on the price of a single-day ticket!
Be sure to visit ICON Orlando for a family night out on the town, a date night, or to impress out of town guests. You do not want to miss the views from the top of the observation wheel! And diving under the sea with Sea Life Aquarium Orlando is an experience you’re family will never forget.
