Get a bird's eye view of Sea World from Sky Tower, a 400-feet high observa-tion tower. Built in 1973, it's the tallest observation tower in Florida and contains a double-decker rotating pod. Enjoy a leisurely six-minute capsule ride up to the top and back again, stopping at the top to take in the view. From the capsule, guests can see Orlando and other area attractions. Transformed as the centrepiece of the all-new Tower Island, it is now surrounded by an aged fortress and a bar overlooking the picturesque harbour. 

 

During Christmas, the tower is decorated with very long lines of lights, turning it into the largest Christmas tree in the Southeastern United States.

 

Today the Sky Tower adds a dose of retro-cool to a day’s adventures. Take the weight off your feet at 400 feet, as you plan the rest of your day in the park.
