SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment operates a chain of adventure parks across the country including Busch Gardens, Adventure Island, Discovery Cove, and the three SeaWorld parks in Orlando, San Antonio, & San Diego. SeaWorld is the world’s most popular marine-life park. Seaworld Orlando was the home to the first killer whale born and raised in captivity. In addition to killer whales, other sea mammals at the parks include beluga whales, bottlenose dolphins, sea lions, otters, walruses, penguins, and an array of other marine life. Sea World also features a variety of thrill rides plus Shark Encounter, where guests actually travel inside an acrylic tunnel which passes through the shark tanks.
