It started raining the day we were there which made people leave so the crowd dwindled down pretty fast. The shows were nice as well. We didn't ride anything so I cannot rate that. The bathrooms weren't clean and the trash cans smelled terrible when you walked by them in the park, definitely needed tending to. It is no Disney... More

Plenty to do and see here. Lots of walk up exhibits so there's no waiting in line. This is great for small kids. We get the refillable popcorn bucket and drink cups, saves tons of money. Reasonably priced refreshments and they're building new attractions all the time (roller coasters and whatnot). I often buy annual passes here, it's fun for... More

It's a combo platter of rides, shows, aquariums and animal interactions. They do a good job of having a variety of things to interest the kids, and the teens, and parents and even the oldsters. My kids were able to touch manta rays and little sharks and dolphins. They got sprayed by whales and sea lions. The animals all seemed... More

I have also been to Sea World Orlando, and both are about the same. I enjoyed the time I spent here. Don't go in the winter if you want to ride rides, as Atlantis is closed. I enjoyed all the shows we saw. I recommend the pet show. Definitely plan to spend all day here.

We had a lot of fun at SeaWorld. Prepare for a lot of walking inside the theme park. Our favorite part was watching the sea lions and the show.

Aquatic life very interesting. Our grandson enjoyed the rides. We were not able to see quite a few of the attractions due to being closed and a lot of things were not in working order. We did get a lower price for the tickets and considering the time of year, we were satisfied with our experience.

When visiting seaworld, be sure to allow a fully day. There is so much to see and do. Just don't; go on a wet ride and then go in the polar bear enclosure - brrrr!! We had a great day here...it is a must do in San Diego.

Exellent park for the hole family! I have visited this park three times, and I find it very interesting every time. You must plan your day, so you can see most of all the shows, they are great fun, look for the sea otter......

Amazing to see how trained the animals are with great relationships with their keepers. Disappointing that a number of the attractions, rides, enclosures were closed due to maintenance although ticket prices weren't reduced to caveat that. Great shows, fun rides but prices on the day as not everything open.
