Manta is a great coaster. Seal lion show is at the top of our list. Don't miss out on the pineapple whip. We purchased annual passes for the first time. We absolutely love it. Kids aged 12 and 14.

Exhibits were great. Not impressed with shows. We have been to all the Seaworlds in the country. Shamu show, Pets Rule, and Sealion shows are much better in Orlando and San Antonio. We paid to eat with Shamu again. Terrible seating. We couldn't get good pictures. The general public could see and hear the same demonstration of the whales as... More

My friend took me to Sea World as a treat. It was a hot San Diego day and i would have loved to be on the wet zones but nah! We sat up and enjoyed viewing the kids enjoying splashes from the whale and dolphin shows! Most of the rides were unfortunately closed including the Shipwreck Rapids that we really... More

Visiting Sea World in San Diego was tremendous fun. I'd never been before and didn't imagine that it could take a full day to see and do everything there. It is a full day. There is a long list of places to visit and shows to watch within Sea World. I didn't know that the Clydesdales (of Budweiser commercials) are... More

A family of five using our Southern Californian Pass this was our last theme park. A hot day with a good mix of rides and presentations. The park is looking a bit tired in parts but also has some modern rides too. Would I come back; once is enough. Good for young families.

This park has some interesting shows which can amaze you for an entire day, they have simulators, roller coasters, restaurants, shows including different animals. The food and gifts are pretty expensive, as usual in this kind of par, but I can say you will have a good time.

The seal & otter show with biff was very good! We also saw the dolphins and Orca shows which were also very good only wish they were longer (they only last about 20 min.) I took my wife and two daughters ages 16 & 20 and 4 month old grand daughter.
