If scuba diving is your thing, you absolutely can't miss Epcot Divequest. Sure, it's part of the Walt Disney World, but don't think that Epcot doesn't take itself seriously or that it's for children. You have to be scuba certified if you want to dive into this 5.7-million-gallon saltwater tank and see the over 6,000 sea creatures swimming around. The diving experience lasts only 40 minutes, and it would certainly be a lot more fulfilling if it lasted longer, but then again, during the three hour tour you also get to see the enormous backstage infrastructure required to filter and maintain the giant tank. The diving equipment if provided by the park staff.
