Stranded melon-headed whale being cared for by SeaWorld Orlando

SeaWorld Orlando Whale

Brant Gabriel, from SeaWorld’s animal rescue team, cares for Dante, a juvenile melon-headed whale that was found stranded on a west Florida beach on October 23. The whale was rescued by Mote Marine Laboratory and had been receiving urgent attention before being transported to SeaWorld Orlando’s Cetacean Rehabilitation Facility on Friday, October 28, 2011. Experts are cautious about the animal’s prognosis.  SeaWorld’s animal care team is on call 24/7 to rescue injured, orphaned or ill marine mammals.

An animal rescue team from SeaWorld Orlando is working with experts from Mote Marine Laboratory in Sarasota, Fla., transported a juvenile melon-headed whale from Mote Marine Laboratory’s Dolphin and Whale Hospital to SeaWorld’s Cetacean Rehabilitation Facility where it will receive long-term care.

The whale was found stranded on Manasota Key, on the west coast of Florida, on October 23. Mote staff and volunteers provided medical care and support for the whale during the most critical time period following its stranding. The whale, nicknamed Dante by Mote staff, received around-the-clock medical care at Mote, which stabilized its condition and allowed veterinarians to begin treating the animal for pneumonia and gastroenteritis.

Once the animal was stabilized — and with the approval of the federal agency that oversees the care and protection of marine mammals — Dante was transferred today to SeaWorld Orlando, which has a new pool and larger facilities required to support Dante’s need for longer-term rehabilitation.

The whale – about six and a half feet long – seemed comfortable after the trip and was acclimating to his new pool. SeaWorld vets will take blood samples and staff will monitor the young whale. The park’s experts are cautious about the animal’s prognosis but credit the animal’s good condition to the quality of urgent care received at Mote.

Melon-headed whales are normally found in deep, tropical waters including the Gulf of Mexico. Adult melon-headed whales can grown to nearly 10 feet in length and more than 400 lbs.

It is unknown why this whale stranded.

SeaWorld Orlando’s Animal Rescue Team releases loggerhead sea turtle

(November 21, 2011) — Animal care experts from SeaWorld Orlando released an adult loggerhead sea turtle this morning at Lori Wilson Park just south of Cocoa Beach. The turtle was rescued on March 14, 2011 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station by park personal and brought to SeaWorld Orlando for treatment.  The turtle is approximately 20 yrs. old, 150 lbs. and is 2 feet and 4 inches long.
When the turtle arrived at SeaWorld it was emaciated, covered in barnacles and was unable to eat on its own.  Suffering from pneumonia, the turtle received antibiotics and was tube fed to provide valuable nutrition and was soon eating on its own.
The turtle was tagged prior to its release for future monitoring.
For 45 years, SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment has helped animals in need — ill, injured and orphaned.  More than 20,000 animals have been rescued by our experts, and most of those animals are successfully treated and returned to the wild.
SeaWorld’s animal rescue team is on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

SeaWorld Orlando Announces the Future : Antarctica – Empire of the Penguin

SeaWorld Antartica Orlando Florida

New attractions sure to top Orlando’s “must-see” list for 2012 and 2013

  • SeaWorld Orlando announces its 2012 and 2013 new attractions
  • New experience also opening at Discovery Cove in 2012

ORLANDO, Fla. — With three astounding new attractions featuring all-new ways to connect guests to the mysteries of the sea, SeaWorld Orlando and Discovery Cove are once again sure to top the “must-see” list for upcoming Orlando vacations.

SeaWorld designers just announced new experiences to open in 2012 at SeaWorld Orlando and Discovery Cove, and released a few details of a massive expansion set to debut at SeaWorld in 2013. Discovery Cove is a swim-with-dolphins resort across the street from SeaWorld in Orlando.

The new attractions represent the biggest attraction expansions in the history of SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment, the parks’ parent company.

SeaWorld antartica pinguin

Antarctica – Empire of the Penguin is SeaWorld Orlando’s single biggest attraction expansion ever.  What’s part of this huge undertaking?

It’s not only where SeaWorld will be taking guests in 2013 – to the bottom of the world, Antarctica – it’s also how SeaWorld takes guests there and what animals will be encountered during the journey.

Details are few – the attraction is as mysterious as the continent – but here are a few

icebergs of information.

  •  For years, SeaWorld Orlando has taken guests on priceless journeys of adventure. In each case, the park opens a window to the amazing underwater world guests can’t experience on their own.
  • Antarctica – the continent – is largely unexplored. The land locked under 9,000 feet of ice is not owned or claimed by any one country. The weather is always changing and more than always harsh. Much of the water surrounding the continent is just above freezing.  Yet this land at the bottom of the world is home to some of the most amazing animals in the world. Antarctica is the empire of the penguin.

What makes SeaWorld’s Antarctica so unique?

  • Guests will be surrounded by the sights, sounds and awesome encounters found in this frozen land, embarking on a one-of-a-kind ride and an incredible family adventure.

They’ll experience the mystery and wonder of Antarctic life on the ice through the eyes of a penguin, sensing the beauty and drama of their sometimes-dangerous habitat. SeaWorld’s Antarctica combines closer-then-ever animal connections with state-of-the-art interactive ride technologies for adventures that are different each time.

Turtle Oasis Orlando Florida


While creating TurtleTrek (opening at SeaWorld Orlando in spring 2012), designers stayed true to SeaWorld’s unique blend of nose-to-nose animal encounters and state-of-the art entertainment.

Guests first visit two massive naturalistic habitats, one filled with hundreds of freshwater fish and gentle manatees, the other home to more than 1,500 saltwater fish and more than a dozen sea turtles.  Many of the manatees and sea turtles were rescued by the park’s animal team.  Since SeaWorld Orlando’s rescue programs began, the team has cared for and returned to the wild nearly 240 manatees and more than 1,200 sea turtles.

Freshwater Oasis

Just across the street from SeaWorld Orlando is Discovery Cove, a limited-admission, all-inclusive tropical resort where guests swim with dolphins, hand-feed tropical birds in a free-flight aviary, snorkel among thousands of colorful fish and rays and relax on pristine beaches.

Opening at Discovery Cove in spring 2012 is Freshwater Oasis, an all-new attraction featuring swimming and wading adventures and face-to-face encounters with playful otters and curious marmosets.


Ford Explorer in LEGO® Bricks From Chicago Assembly Plant to the New Ford Driving School at LEGOLAND® Theme Park near Orlando Florida

TO WATCH THIS AWESOME VIDEO CLICK:  Building a Ford Explorer to LEGOLAND® Florida

Full-size LEGOLAND® Florida Explorer created from more than 380,000 LEGOs makes its debut at Chicago Assembly Plant; model took more than 2,500 hours to create

 New LEGOLAND Florida theme park is the second in the U.S. and the fifth and largest LEGOLAND park in the world; it’s comprised of more than 50 million LEGO bricks

Ford Driving School at LEGOLAND Florida allows children to experience the fun and responsibility of driving in their own vehicles (at a maximum speed of 3 mph)

Orlando, Florida – A unique Ford Explorer rolling off the line at Chicago Assembly Plant  feature the model’s trademark eye-catching craftsmanship with one notable distinction. This Ford Explorer is created from more than 380,000 LEGO bricks and marks the beginning of a long-term alliance between Ford and LEGOLAND® Florida theme park.

The bright red LEGOLAND Florida edition Explorer, created by 22 designers, weighs 2,654 pounds and is supported by a 768-pound interior aluminum base.

The completely reinvented Ford Explorer is a head-turner on its own, of course, blending style, capability and technology with class-leading fuel efficiency. It delivers an EPA-certified 28 mpg on the highway with an all-new EcoBoost® engine.

After its debut at the historic Chicago plant, which produces the Explorer, the vehicle will be loaded onto a trailer with transparent sides so motorists can see the LEGO Explorer as it makes its way to the new 150-acre LEGOLAND Florida theme park just outside Orlando.

There it will be featured in front of one of the park’s attractions, the Ford Driving School for children.

“Ford is excited to support the alliance between LEGOLAND Florida and the Southeast Ford dealers. The LEGOLAND Florida Explorer and the Ford Driving School attraction are great opportunities to showcase our products and safety messages to families and visitors in a unique way,” said Tracy Magee, Ford Experiential Marketing manager.

LEGOLAND Florida,  Cater to kids ages 2 to 12 with more than 50 family-focused rides, shows and attractions and a historical botanical garden.

The park, which features exhibits using more than 50 million LEGO bricks, is divided into 10 themed entertainment zones for kids. It allows them to experience different adventures, including the empowering thrill of getting behind the wheel and learning to drive their own vehicle.

LEGOLAND Florida General Manager Adrian Jones. “This is the only park of its kind in the world built exclusively for kids ages 2 to 12, and it is a total departure from anything families with young children have seen before. It’s a completely immersive experience, engaging kids’ imaginations and their sense of adventure through interactive play.”

Driving through LEGOLAND Florida

The driving school is divided by age. There’s a Ford Junior Driving School for children ages 3 to 5 years old and a Ford Driving School for those ages 6 to 12. The children watch a video with driving instructions and safety tips – starting with the basics like safety belts and the difference between the accelerator and the brake – and move on to stoplights and stop signs. Children then have the opportunity to drive in their own electric vehicles on curbed roads with maximum speed limits of 3 mph.

With its detailed LEGO theme, the attraction is designed to give children the experience of driving in a real-world neighborhood.

While the children are behind the wheel, park employees known as “model citizens” are nearby to ensure the experience stays positive. After the drive is complete, the children are issued their own Ford Driving School license.

The school was the brainchild of Florida-area Ford dealers that worked with LEGOLAND Florida management, and is designed to introduce the fun and responsibility of driving skills to children.
