^Ah, you're right, but most thrilling family ride in Orlando probably is up there with most thrilling family ride in the world. I consider all of the Disney coasters (except RnR) to be "family rides" so to be more thrilling than Everest and Space Mountain it will have to be a pretty decent coaster. I still think this will be some type of interactive dark ride.
I would be really surprised by a coaster of any kind but a typical dark ride would be lacking in the thrill department. Could still be anything I guess but a dark ride with some thrilling element would be my guess.
Today SeaWorld Orlando invited TPR to get some information and a sneak peek at their new Christmas season show "O Wondrous Night." Watch the video below... you'll get to see Robb puppeteer a donkey! Yes! It was amazing!
O Wondrous Night – The Story Greatest Never Told. This living nativity show tells the Christmas Story, with more than 30 carols and told through the eyes of the animals that were there. Everyone will be entertained by this touching, light-hearted and glorious celebration featuring a host of angels, animals and the true glory of Christmas.
Waves of holiday spirit splash over the park during SeaWorld Orlando’s Christmas Celebration. With everything from elves to Elmo, and Santa to Shamu, lifelong memories are made in a watery, wintery wonderland that only SeaWorld could create. Holiday events take place Friday through Sunday nights, November 25 - Dec. 11, and nightly December 16 – 31.

Those from out of town or with limited time can take advantage of the Kids Free promotion, which allows kids free admission with every full-paid adult admission.

I was always very impressed with SeaWorld's Christmas event and the addition of this show it looks like this years event should be very strong again. The Polar Express overlay is always pretty cool, and the the ice skating show at the Stadium was always very entertaining. I personally wasn't a huge fan of the Shamu Christmas Miracles show but know a lot of people that absolutely LOVE it (I prefer Shamu rocks), but the late night shows always meant walk on or station waits for Manta and Kraken which is a plus.
