There’s still two weekends left in January… Which means there’s still time to get in on the behind-the-scenes fun happening at SeaWorld Orlando.

“Inside Look” is here to give you and your family a look inside some of the backstage areas of the park, with tours of SeaWorld’s Rescue Center, Fish House, Sea Lion and Otter Primary Housing, Animal Ambassador Hamlet, Beluga and Seal Primary Housing and Manta Aquarium. Note: You can read more about these centers in the online version of this article, at AroundOsceola.com.

Guests who participate are encouraged to collect stamps at all six locations to earn an exclusive Expert Explorer’s Pin. 

The tours happen at various times on select dates only. The remaining dates include Jan. 19, 20, 26 and 27. 

SeaWorld’s Inside Look weekends also features special guest appearances, with OCEARCH founder Chris Fischer (Jan. 19-20) and Jack Hanna (Jan. 26-27). Guy Harvey kicked off the weekend events during Inside Look’s first weekend (Jan. 12-13). 

All tours and guest appearances are included in SeaWorld Orlando general admission and annual passes. Reserved seating may be purchased for guest appearances. For more information, visit https://seaworld.com/orlando/events/inside-look/

If your January weekends are already booked, don’t worry. This special event will return for another round of behind-the-scenes tours in May. Stay tuned for updates.


Next up, SeaWorld will celebrate a birthday for beloved Sesame Street character Elmo. Elmo’s Birthday Celebration.

The party is happening Feb. 2-3, and will also help welcome the park’s brand-new “Sesame Street at SeaWorld” in the spring.
