    We'll be spending one day at Sea World in August. What are some not miss attractions? None of my kids are going to enjoy the roller coaster(s). I know they'll want to do some of the kiddy rides in Shamoo's Happy Harbor and Atlantis for sure.

    What else?

    when we went, we had 2 teenage girls.

    We LOVED Shamu - the show and watching them in the tanks, the Dolphin Nursery, Seamore & Clyde and the mime beforehand, the stingrays and dolphins. We didn't do ANY rides - well, my husband and older daughter did one of the coasters and we did the Polar Express because it was Thanksgiving. But that's a simulator.

    My kids loved all of the shows. Pets Ahoy is cute too - save it for the afternoon when you need a break as it is in an air conditioned theater. Also, we loved the new exhibit Turtle Trek - which includes a 360 degree 3D movie (also in a/c) - although there may be some scenes that might frighten a very sensitive child. The sea lion/otter exhibit is also a lot of fun - they were roaring pretty loud and the little ones were flipping all over the place. Not sure when you are going but there are some really adorable babies there now. The only rides my kids did were Atlantis and Wild Arctic - there is plenty to do.

    You'll do yourself a disservice, if you miss out on Turtle Trek. It was probably the single-most immersive movie experience I have ever seen.

    Also, I think Blue Horizons is the best show they have.

    I think Pets Ahoy is one of the most unexpected treats at SeaWorld but my favorite show is Clyde and Seamore. Several people mentioned the mime, who shouldn't be missed. If you are on Facebook, the mimes have a fan page. Please join! Search SeaWorld Mime Orlando or copy and paste below:
