Reviewed July 20, 2013

Great shows and a more relaxed park than some others. Went on Manta and that was Ok but didn't fancy Kracken. Appreciate not everyone into these type of shows but the dolphin one in particular we thought was spectacular. Didn't like that you had to queque up for the antarctic ride to see the penguins. However overall park worth a visit for the 3 shows( dolphin, Shamu and Sea lion)

Liked touching the rays and feeding dolphins. Usual food rip off prices but what do you expect.

“Felt cheated”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

The park allowed us to enter without advising us that the rides were shut down due to bad weather. Bought ticket from a third party so too bad for me said Seaworld

Reviewed July 20, 2013

Had a great time make sure you see the Dolphin show and pay the additional fee so your child can feed and play with them after the show in the feeding area, also the Shamu Show but don't sit wright in front like I did got soaked!! The seal lion show was real cute as well!

This is by far my favorite place to visit in Orlando. From the moment you walk through the turnstile it is such a wonderfully sunny and uplifting place no matter what the weather!! The dolphin, Shamu and Clyde and Seamore shows are great fun and the other exhibits are brilliant too. The food is typical American theme park stuff. When we were there (this week) it was quite rainy and then the 2 big outdoor roller coasters don't run and the shows too are frequently cancelled if there is any hint of lightning, which is fair enough, but it does lead to lots of people wandering around with not much to do. A fabulous day out though. i suggest you get the ticket that includes admission to Aquatica (Seaworld's Waterpark) which is another great day out!!

“Not for young children”
Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

I should have been more prepared before spending almost $400 on admission. I thought this was mostly about animals with a few rides but it is mostly rides with a few animals. There were really long lines for the rides and my 5 and 2 year old couldn't ride the najority if them. We knew this going to the park but we thought the animals would make up for it. The shark exhibit was closed and so was the dolphin nursery. Shamu show was great but I didn't like the "one world" theme. The layout of the park was very confusing and we constantly were relying on the map and still got turned around. If all of your children are older then its a good trip but any children under 8 is a waste of money.
