2013 Travel & Adventure Show Highlights
- On the Main Stage, travel headliners include travel icon Arthur Frommer, best-selling travel writer, publisher and creator of the Frommer’s series of travel guides; Andrew Zimmern, co-creator, host and contributing producer of Travel Channel’s Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern and Andrew Zimmern’s Bizarre World; and Public broadcasting stalwart Rick Steves, host of Rick Steves Europe.
- New this year, both SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment and Busch Gardens will play a role in the show, with exhibitions that are both entertaining and educational. SeaWorld Orlando will offer visitors a voyage to the icy world of Antarctica, providing a virtual sneak peek of the continent's thrills and chills. Walk side by side with a penguin colony, go beneath the surface, become an Arctic explorer and enjoy a unique family experience. There will even be live Magellanic penguins making scheduled appearances.
- Family-friendly activities includes free scuba lessons from certified scuba instructors in the 4-foot-deep, 18,000 gallon scuba pool--wetsuits, masks, air tanks and hairdryers are all provided! A rock climbing wall will test visitor's fear of heights, and an aerial zip line will fly guests across the exhibit floor.
- The Culinary Stage will showcase chef demonstrations and discussions, and is hosted by Season 3 Hell’s Kitchen winner, Chef Rahman “Rock” Harper and America’s only female swordfishing captain, Linda Greenlaw, made famous in the movie “A Perfect Storm.”
