Seaworld Orlando Overview
Seaworld is a polarising park. For decades its main draw has been it’s captive whale program but public distaste in recent years has forced Seaworld to re-brand and re-focus while still staying core to its mission of conservation. The Seaworld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund has donated over $18 million in grants in its near 20 year history.

To illustrate the physical exertion, I use my Google Fit app to track my step count and distance walked in each park. I’ve crunched the numbers and the figures below represent my most recent visit to the park.
