Greetings, listeners! SurferClock here along with TAP-G to bring you the latest episode of "What's the Attraction?"
It may surprise you to learn that in 40 episodes of this podcast, there's still one of the Big Three that we've been neglecting...but today, that's all going to change. We are finally going to begin our coverage of SeaWorld Orlando! Now, keep in mind that SeaWorld currently operates three main parks in the United States: SeaWorld San Diego, SeaWorld San Antonio, and SeaWorld Orlando. Some of the attractions we review may be shared by one or more of the parks, and so far as we know, the attractions should be relatively about the same...if there are any noted differences we find in our research, we'll be happy to share 'em.
For now, though, let's get this new park started with a trip to the Arctic! SeaWorld's Wild Arctic experience opened up in 1992 in Orlando and 5 years later in the San Antonio park. This motion-simulator brings you on an adventure that eventually ends with you entering the "Franklin Research Center," a thinly-veiled research center featuring a series of exhibits displaying polar bears, walruses, and beluga whales. In addition, there are a few interactive cameras and other pleasant extras for the kiddies.
Aside from a seasonal facelift each Christmas to simulate a "Polar Express Experience," the attraction hasn't undergone too many changes...how does it hold up after a little over 20 years? Find out with our review today!

Also, if you can't tell by now, we've done away with the
whole Slingfile thing. Podcasts will begin to disappear from there, so
please let us know if you'd still like to get MP3s of the podcasts, and we'll see what we can do about hosting.
As always, thank you all so much for supporting What's the
and helping us grow! It's great to be able to share our love of the
parks with everyone out there. If you enjoyed it, please like our page
