The shows were great and my highlight of my visit. The one negative and off putting thing is that the Electric Eel Ride DOES NOT have storage cubicles for bags like the Manta and Tentacle Twirl rides. If somehow you make it past the person...More

Took two grandkids, ages 2 and 6 this trip, so was especially impressed with the number of hands-on-at-no-additional-charge activities they had the opportunity to enjoy. Was also impressed with the knowledge shared by staff posted at these venues. My personal favorite is always the sea...More

We went to this place on September 13. An out dated place, half of the rides were closed and no dolphins show at all!!! Manta ride was working and when we went there at 3:30, they told us that they just closed the ride. The...More

the place is good for young children although it requires good freshen up (quite old dated). Eating on the spot is a total rip off for not even quality food - would recommend bringing your own food/drinks if you are with children especially. It's a...More

We visited Sea World on a Friday during school hoping we’d get a less filled Park. Well, that worked out but nothing else seemed to go all that well. Multiple rides and attractions were all closed, the Manta, Bayside Sky Ride, Dolphin Days, Elmo’s Flying...More

$22 to park set the day off with a bang! Everything inside is expensive, food, souvenirs, paying extra for certain rides, shows, etc. Orca show was great along with the sea lion show and pets show. But the dolphin show wasn't even running, plus the...More

Here is why you might want to skip: 1) It's not as clean as it could be. Restrooms often seem to need attention. They charge for at least 2 of the rides. This seems ridiculous since its an amusement park and they are charging for...More
