SeaWorld, Discovery Cove & Aquatica: Orlando’s Salute to the Seas

Originally Published in MotorHome Magazine

Orlando, Florida is one of the most popular vacation destinations in the United States, if
not the world. Very few people can resist the lure of the various Walt Disney World theme
parks, and for those who can, Universal Studios and SeaWorld are a stone’s throw away from
Mickey Mouse’s Main Street, USA. Kelly Monaghan has authored a new book to help guide you
on your excursion into Orlando’s theme-park world with SeaWorld, Discovery Cove and
Aquatica: Orlando’s Salute to the Seas
. Focusing exclusively on the
Anheuser-Busch-owned, “Worlds of Discovery”-titled parks, Monaghan’s book is a
comprehensive guide to Orlando’s sea-themed parks. Want to swim with the dolphins?
Discovery Cove is the place for you. How about descending into a tank full of sharks, or
meeting a beluga whale? You’d be better off visiting SeaWorld. SeaWorld is also home to a
growing number of daredevil roller coasters and thrill rides, including the exciting Kraken
– a steel roller coaster with a dizzying number of plunges. Manta – billed as a “flying
roller coaster” – opens in 2009. Aquatica is the newest park in Orlando’s Worlds of
Discovery family, is a water park with an unusual highlight: black-and-white Commerson’s
dolphins from Australia. Orlando’s Salute to the Seas offers a chapter on each
park, additional chapters on resort hotels, and an extensive index. In addition to the
Orlando parks, two chapters touche upon two other World of Discovery parks in nearby Tampa
Bay, Florida: Busch Gardens Africa and Adventure Island. With so much bang for your buck,
Orlando’s Salute to the Seas is a bargain at an MSRP of just $15.95. Available in
bookstores nationwide Visit Intrepid
