SeaWorld Orlando is one of the eight world class theme parks in Central Florida. Of all the parks, this is one of my favorites for a fun relaxing day in a beautifully landscaped area with all sorts of neat sea animal exhibits and shows. It also features a couple adrenaline rides like the coaster Kraken and the Journey to Atlantis water ride. The free beer samples at the Annhauser-Busch Hospitality House doesn't hurt either.

This is a shot of the show "Believe" featuring Shamu, the killer whale in Shamu Stadium. Actually they have at least a half dozen Shamu's, from newborns to one which is a real monster! Of all the shows, this is probably the most popular. The seating area down by the water is a 'Splash Zone' as during the show the jumps and tail flips spray tons of cold salt water on visitors. There is a really neat nigh time version of the show during peak season. The large rectangular panels on the stage are huge TV screens that display video throughout the show and move, spin and change which is why they might seem messed up in this shot. I tried to get at least one good picture of Shamu and trainer but it was tough.

Taken with a Canon Powershot G9. In this shot, I manually set the exposure and only shot the main show area, not the stadium so much in hopes of getting more of the whales and trainers.
