“Fun Day with School Group”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

The 5th grade kids had a blast at Seaworld on their recent end-of-elementary-years field trip. They arrived early, watched a presentation, then were let loose to stand beside and learn about the killer whales, feed dolphins, tour through amazing aquariums (and saw the most incredible seahorse-like creature) and delight in water-related shows. The performers were good ... not great, though I'm Disney-spoiled. The rides for that age group were awesome. Facing the ground on Manta proved too frightening for some but fun-scary for others. The water ride had a surprising double dip and Kraken had the right amount of zoom. Water fountains, bathrooms and lockers were well-placed. The minus was the food; outrageously priced and not tasty, dried out chicken, salad without dressing, too-sweet desserts.

“Great for all ages”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

This was the first park we ever visited on our very first trip to Orlando in 2004 so all our family have a huge affection for the place. Its more laid back than Universal/Disney etc as it really does concentrate on putting wildlife first before rollercoasters. Having said that the rides of Kraken & manta seem to keep the youngsters amused. Personally I think most people come here for the shows (any there are loads), from Whales & Dolphins to Manatee & Rays this place has it all. Participating feeding times, exhibitions and shows made our trip this year just that bit more special, helped by great weather and no overcrowding.....Always worth a visit and they sell Starbucks !

“Can't be Beaten”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Where to start on such a memorable visit, well my first tip is to give yourself two full days to see the park that way you'll be sure to not miss anything.

The shows here are phenomenal, Dolphin performances, acrobatics, the Shamu show all take your breath away.

That's without taking into account the chance to feed the dolphins and see marine life that one simply wont experience anywhere else.

“Loved it!”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

Sea World was awesome. The Italian Food Buffet on site was great for the price. It is very quick service and excellent food. All of shows and animal sites were great. After seeing Universal Studio's, All of Disney World Parks, and Sea World, Sea World is best!

“Entertainment for all ages.”
Reviewed May 20, 2013 via mobile

Visiting SeaWorld entertains all in the family. A 13 year old animal lover, a 15 year old thrill-ride seeker and biology teacher mom and tug along dad all had a great time visiting. Shows were incredible. Make yourself a schedule to see as many shows as you can. Also, saw a lot o service dogs roaming the park. Great to see SeaWorld supports Canine Companions for Independence. They had their event at the park. Awesome dogs!
