We cannot stop talking about SeaWorld. We had so much fun seeing animals, getting on rides and the shows were the highlight of the day. Make sure you stop in and see Pet Rules and the Sea Lion show. The park is pretty expensive 10 year olds and above pay $89.00 and parking is $16.00 but the kids (teenagers) cannot... More

What a nice place to visit. The park was clean and easy to get around. Learning all about their rescue efforts and the ways they help the environment was amazing. The animals were healthy and happy all throughout the park. Would definitely go back. End of August is also their off season so rides and attractions were easy to find... More

I hadn't been to SeaWorld San Diego since I was a kid, so I was interested in checking it out now as an adult. I still see myself as a kid at heart so just watching the sea creatures moving about lit my face with a smile. I quite enjoyed riding the roller coasters/rides as well, though I'm not sure... More

Went their for the first time and had a blast. We got on a ride that I can't remember the name of it, but it had a surprise to me rollercoaster at the end. It was so much fun even though I hate any type of roller coasters. The only disappointment was that pictures weren't being taken that day. I... More

Fun to visit exhibits with the killer whales being the highlight. Even just watching them get fed through the underwater viewing windows is fascinating. A bit pricey if you don't have any discounts. Military members should go online to look into discounted passes.

Located at the bay, it has a very easy and fast access from the freeway. The parking is cheap and very near the main entrance. Get your tickets online and you will be able to get great deals, but they change depending on the season. I got my 4 tickets just shy of 200$! The inside of the park is... More

A must visit when in San Diego. I absolutely loved being up close to the Dolphins whom are a delight to see. The whale show was amazing as were all the other attractions. Great day out for the family / couple or even if you're travelling alone. Be warned and take sunscreen on hot days!

Very enjoyable day at SeaWorld. The Dolphin show was fun to watch, with a chance to touch the Dolphins in another nearby pool afterwards. Seeing the Orca's was a unique experience and a must whilst a SeaWorld (don't watch Blackfish the night before like I did). The park itself is easy to find, just a short drive out of San... More

It gets very busy at around 11:30 so ride the Manta roller coaster as soon as you get there. It is great. Very interactive place.
