The Newest Marine-Themed Attraction in Orlando is… The SEA LIFE Aquarium!
Get ready to experience the wonders of the sea and marine life at Orlando’s I-Drive 360 Entertainment Complex on International Drive
Where can you find more than 5,000 creatures from the seven seas in one place? That place is SEA LIFE Orlando Aquarium, which is set to open on May 4th, 2015 at the all-new I-Drive 360 tourist attraction. This state-of-the-art man-made marine life preserve will be opening along with The Orlando Eye and Madame Tussaud’s Orlando wax museum—a trio of attractions that is the biggest thing to happen since Disney’s last theme park grand opening in Orlando.
SEA LIFE Orlando Aquarium features a Rockpool experience that will be the delight of guests as they will be able to see and touch a wide variety of shelled sea creatures, starfish, crabs, sea anemone, and many more marine critters that are safe to touch. And in case you wonder if all of these creatures are real—they really are and are being preserved in natural habitats made specifically for them.
Another show-stopping feature at SEA LIFE Orlando Aquarium is the 360-degree Ocean Tunnel and a second 180-degree tunnel that allows you to see underwater and experience marine life up-close. Along with entertaining guests, SEA LIFE is committed to the breeding, rescue and protection of marine life on a worldwide scale. This commitment ensures that SEA LIFE can reinvest in the future of our oceans and the marine life that thrives in them.
The trio of new attractions is all part of I-Drive 360, a $200 million entertainment complex built on the grounds of the old Mercado Mediterranean Shopping Village, which was a staple of International Drive shopping and dining in the 80s and 90s. And as you can imagine, Vista Cay Resort by Millenium is just down the road from the new I-Drive 360 experience, ready to welcome you to Orlando and the excitement that these attractions offer tourists and business travelers alike.
