Seaworld in a day ... doable ?

Hi all,

As above really.

Thanks to the Discovery Cove Blue Friday deal, we are now planning on how to squeeze Seaworld and Aquatica into our week in Orlando @ Easter.

Aquatica will be fine - we'll just replace what was going to be a Disney Water Park day with AQ so we'll save money as well - but ... is it possible, in possibly busy season, to do Seaworld in a day ? Or would you need the fast passes as well ?

And by 'do' I mean all the big rides and possibly one of the shows ?

I doubt you will be able to do both Aquatica AND Seaworld in a single day, especially if you're going at a busy time

probably start with Aq as early as possible, then move to SW with Quick Queue to do the rides. but that would add the cost of Quick Quene

the above poster is correct, you can do all of seaworld in the morning and be out early in the afternoon, but doing Aq after that might be difficult depending on when the park closes.
from your ticker, you go in april, and Aq will close around 7pm, so if you're out of SW at 3pm and in Aq at 4pm you still have 3 hours to enjoy the waterpark, that should be enough, if it's not an overly busy day.

doing Aq before is not adviseable as it opens later than SW

that would be an intense day, but if you're willing to make a short visit to SW and move on to Aq when you feel like it, then it's probably doable

would I do it ? no. But that's just me.

Sorry, should have been clearer.

We have 2 days to do both but only 1 day @ each.

SW was my main worry.

We did it in a day in August, it wasn't that busy and even some of the brilliant rides were a walk on. The longest wait we had was 60 minutes for that penguin thing which I wouldn't bother with again. No huge queues at all.

So easy to do in one day - or less - in October (when we were there). All rides were walk-on, the only delay being the faff with Kracken and the VR headsets.
Love Seaworld - there are some serious coasters there now.
