We loved the Seas! We spent a good part of our day just watching the fish. We all loved seeing the dolphins and rays swim by. Not to mention the Nemo ride and Turtle Talk, plus our favorite restaraunt: Coral Reef.
The Living Seas was a true Epcot original and a classic. The themeing and background music was impeccable. The queue area was full of interesting artifacts and a unique preshow that was projected on the walls around you. The pavilion's movie, "The Seas", featured beautiful cinematography, striking narration, and a superb sound system. The Hydralators were a key element of the attraction; as a kid, I thought I was actually being taken under water. The sea cabs were a nice ride, but the real star of the show was Seabase Alpha. It *felt* like an undersea station. The diving exhibitions, the interactive kiosks, the diving suit games, and more made this a place that you could easily spend an hour or more at.
I would have given it 10, but my one knock against the place is that at times it almost seemed like there was too much to experience there. But at the end of the day, it was a classic Epcot pavilion that offered an unparalleled edutainment experience.
great place to see aquatic life and tie education with fun
The elevator trip to Sea base Alpha was kind of fakey but the shows were ok. The sea cabs ride was the best; it was great to travel through the aquarium and see the view of all the fish and coral. The Seas with Nemo should have more of that. I'm not sure if I like the Nemo takeover or not, it brings more crowds in at least.
