“Sea World”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

I went to Seaworld with my husband in January of 2014 and it was his first visit to Seaworld and he loved it! He wants to go back again when we visit either California or Orlando again! Seaworld is a fun place to go and see wonderful animals that are so fun to learn about and watch. They had fun shows as well that we would love to see again. I would recommend anyone who loves animals to go and see this attraction.

“Drink & Food stands closed way too soon before listed closing time.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

4 adults spent the day at SeaWorld on March 20, 2014..Closing time was listed at 7:00 PM But, most of the places to purchase a drink or food were closing by 5:40 PM...Not good customer service. Thank goodness the shows were wonderfully creative, well rehearsed and entertaining.
Wait lines were within reason.

“Lifetime memories”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

taking my 10 year old son to feed all the animals was one of the highlights of our trip. For a few bucks feeding dolphins, seals, rays and sharks was something he will never forget

“Over priced”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

Went here in March 2014 to use up our vouchers from Allegiant Airline (a terrible cheap airline). We wanted to use up the vouchers so decided to choose Sea World over Legoland. That was a mistake.

We have watched the documentaries, The Cove and Blackfish so did not want to go, but our desire to use up our vouchers was stronger than our morals I guess. I also remember going to Seaworld as a child and really enjoyed it and our children really like dolphins. We looked online and our family of 4 cost $400 for tickets. We realize now, that this was not good value. If you compare this cost to Disneyworld, Disney is way better value.

Our 3 year old could go on very few rides, even in the children's amusement centre. This caused many tears.

It was raining out, and there are very few covered areas. (There was almost no one there, so no line ups!)

You have to pay for parking, which was around $20. You are not allowed to bring in outside food except for Children's snacks. (This is not fair considering it cost $100 a child, we need to cut corners somewhere!) We kept our "food" in the car and went back there to eat, as you are allowed to do that.

They charge you extra ($5) to dry off after a ride gets you wet, it is another $5 to feed a seal, dolphin, etc.

The best part was seeing the penguins after the lame penguin ride. My young children enjoyed the pirate/seal show. We were going to feed the dolphins, but they shut this down by 4 and we missed it.

I am glad our tickets were sort of "free", as this place is really terrible. I would have been so upset if I had actual paid for it. It was pretty boring.

“Behind the Scenes Tour was Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014 via mobile

Booked our tickets with Attraction Tickets Direct for Discovery Cove, and they included unlimited visits to both Seaworld and Aquatica! We separately booked the Behind the Scenes Tour for the four of us. Tour guide was very good,Brent I think he was called. Very informative and fun. Loads to see and lots of interesting info. My two children are 13 and 10, and really enjoyed it. For younger kids, maybe not so good. It was great to see behind the park, learn more about their Eco/conservation beliefs. Tour lasted approx 2 hours, and we stroked a penguin,touched a shark and watched the dolphins playing! Great fun, great experience.
We would recommend this tour!
