We went only for the up close penguin tour and it was definitely worth the admission and additional tour fee! Will go again.

It had been 20 years since I'd been to SeaWorld. Now there's rides. The Manta rollercoaster and the Atlantis water ride will keep teenagers interested enough to fill the time between shows. Make sure you feed the rays, spending the money to buy the food is worth it. Late August or early September is a great time to visit because... More

We came here on sunny day and we had a great time. First we went to all the touch tanks and touched - cleaner fish, sharks, horseshoe crabs and rays. We saw Shamu and friends in their resting tank, saw the dolphin show and then saw sea turtles. Then we saw the sea otters. We were then very tired so... More

Sea World is a great family destination, fun shows and activities for all ages, great gift shops (high prices though), good restaurants. The kids learn lots of interesting facts about marine life. We have been 4 times and are ever so eager to go back, especially when they make that bigger more natural tanks for the orcas, that's going to... More

Each time we are in town we visit sea world. This has been our fourth time. Each time we experience a different part of the park. We appreciate that there is something of interest for everyone. We love aquatics, so all the exhibits are worth watching to us. Especially like the rides and play areas that cater to kids. Pricing... More

We went in late September and that may be the reason for the lack of quality ... but we have frequented Sea World for probably the last 45 years and this visit was mediocre at best. For $89 it's a bit pricey for the little there is to do ... probably will be out last visit.

This place is great for all ages. So much to do, see and learn. The mammals here are spectacular to watch and the rides are fun also. I highly recommend going to Sea World if you ever get the chance.

The park is beautiful. The ticket prices ($85 each) are through the roof expensive especially given the fact that lunch is going to cost another $25 a head, at least. There is plenty of parking for $17 a spot. The exhibits are nice but haven't been updated in decades. The thrill rides (if that's what you want to call them)... More
