SeaWorld Orlando has announced the return of its Inside Look offering for this fall, now modified for limited capacity and safe physical distancing.
The event will feature six behind-the-scenes locations where guests can learn more about what goes into caring for the animals residing at the park from the experts who do it every day.
New for this year, guests will also have the opportunity to attend a socially-distanced Trainer Talk with one of the park’s animal care specialists. The Trainer Talks will take place behind-the-scenes at locations throughout the park, including Dolphin Theater, Sea Lion and Otter Theater, and Orca Encounter.
Guests can take part in Inside Look at the following locations:
- SeaWorld Rescue Center – Visit the home base of the SeaWorld Rescue Team and meet and hear from the dedicated filtration experts, animal care personnel, lab technicians, and veterinarians who work around the clock to deliver life-saving care to animals in need.
- Fish House – Step inside SeaWorld Orlando’s Zoological Commissary to see how we provide the best of diets for every fish, sea turtle, sea lion, penguin, and other marine animals in our care. This location is not ADA accessible.
- Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin – Venture beyond the ice and snow of SeaWorld’s penguin habitat and learn what goes into caring for these beloved birds who hail from some of the coldest environments in the world.
- Shark Encounter – Get a topside view at Shark Encounter and unlock the mysteries of caring for the sharks and sawfish in SeaWorld’s 700,000-gallon shark habitat.
- Pacific Point Preserve – Take a behind the scenes look at the home of the California sea lions and harbor seals.
- Orca Encounter – Meet and hear from the dedicated animal care specialists who safeguard the health and well-being of the killer whales in our care.
Those looking for an even more exclusive experience can enjoy a meal at Sharks Underwater Grill with a member of the aquarium team who will share more about the world of sharks. This experience will be offered for two weekends only.
Another dining experience is available at Dine with Orcas, where guests can dine next to orcas, hear from animal care experts, and watch the specialized care they receive daily.
Both restaurants have arranged seating layouts to promote physical distancing and limited capacity. Tables and chairs are frequently sanitized, condiment and topping stations are closed, and guests with refillable products will be given single-use alternatives. Instead of traditional menus, single-use paper menus will be used. Buffet-style service areas have been adjusted or closed until further notice.
Inside Look at SeaWorld Orlando takes place on Saturdays and Sundays from Nov. 7-15 and is included with park admission. To learn more, head to SeaWorld.com/Orlando.
