Guests at SeaWorld Orlando can now view the park from the Sky Tower for free. The Sky Tower is a two-deck, rotating platform that holds 50 people and rises 350 feet in the air. Guests listen to a recording describe several of the SeaWorld landmarks they are seeing, in addition to the neighboring Aquatica and Discovery Cove parks. This iconic attraction was built in 1974, one year after SeaWorld opened. It has had many changes in its pricing in the past; most recently the ride was $4 for park guests and $3 for annual passholders.

Terry Prather, SeaWorld president, says, "People are looking for better value, more value. That was one way that we saw as a way to add value to the visit to the SeaWorld park." Prather goes up in the Sky Tower once a week to get a better view of construction happening on the upcoming Turtle Trek attraction.

When the park is busier, plans are in place to use SeaWorld's Quick Queue reservation system for the Sky Tower. Quick Queue is a front of the line pass that is available to guests at an additional charge. The tower remains open during normal park hours unless there is hazardous weather, including high wind speeds.
