Disneyland and Walt Disney World
Visit the Virtual Disney World YouTube channel to experience 360-degree rides from Disneyland and Walt Disney World, including Expedition Everest, Soarin’ Around the World, and Slinky Dog Dash. There are also extinct attractions such as Ellen’s Energy Adventure, Soarin’ Over California, and the Great Movie Ride.
Universal Orlando Resort
Universal’s YouTube channel takes you on a variety of thrilling coasters like The Incredible Hulk Coaster, Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure, and the Krakatau Aqua Coaster at Volcano Bay.
Take a virtual ride on the Manta Ray Coaster, Kraken, and more via SeaWorld Orlando’s YouTube page.
Busch Gardens Williamsburg
The World’s Most Beautiful Theme Park (29 years and counting) features roller coaster POV rides on Tempesto, the Loch Ness Monster, and Verbolten on their YouTube channel.
Zoos and Aquariums
Turn your TV or laptop into a fishbowl, African safari, or marshland habitat with a virtual visit to some of these zoos and aquariums. Live cams of jellyfish, sharks, river otters, and penguin chicks are fun and informative for the whole family.
