SEA LIFE Orlando Aquarium has arrived at ICON Park in Orlando.

If you love the world's oceans or are searching for something really cool to do with the family, the new SEA LIFE Orlando Aquarium is teaming with interactive fun — without actually taking a deep sea dive. From a 360-degree view of sharks to glowing jellyfish, surround yourself with the wonders of the oceans in this new indoor attraction located at ICON Park on International Drive in Orlando.

The appeal of this unique marine experience is the way the collection of more than 5,000 sea creatures are displayed for maximum engagement with the guests.

All exhibits are designed to bring guests in close and become totally immersed within the habitats, including bubble aquariums, floor-to-ceiling displays and 180-degree tunnels sized for both adults and kids.

Our favorite moment is walking into the 360-degree tunnel, where you will feel like you're literally surrounded by sharks, sting rays, dozens of colorful fish and a seemingly hovering, large grouper.

Guests can also reach into the water and feel living sea creatures in the live touch pool. Here, you can touch real sea anemones, sea urchins, sea stars and a variety of small fish.

The overall time spent in the aquarium can average between one to two hours. And if the kids haven't had enough fun, they can always burn off more steam in the two-story playground.

SEALIFE Orlando Aquarium is part of the new ICON Park entertainment complex. There you can also visit the new Madame Tussauds and the 400-foot-tall observation wheel, The Orlando Eye.
