SeaWorld Orlando Announces Fall Inside Look Weekends with Limited Capacity for a Peek Behind-the-Scenes of a World Class Animal Care Facility (SeaWorld Orlando)

ORLANDO, Fla – Have you ever wondered what it takes to care for dozens of penguins, hungry sea lions or a pod of orcas?

SeaWorld Orlando is back, and eager to help answer those questions. Officials said Wednesday that the park is bringing back its informative behind-the-scenes experience called inside look on Nov. 7.

The weekend event allows small groups of guests to hear and see firsthand what goes into providing world-class animal care from the experts who do it every day. SeaWorld will offer six locations around the theme park. Officials said this fall they will offer a new experience called trainer talks.

These experiences will allow guests to talk with trainers at Dolphin Theater, Sea Lion and Otter Theater and Orca Encounter.
