Went with my husband for a mini vacay to get use of our annual passes. We were unaware of the free parking, discounts on food, and souvenirs. We were not told when we purchased them.

The pets ahoy show was cute. Al'ure the acrobat show was awesome. The dolphin show however should be more about the dolphins and a lot less with the divers, theatrical show they try and put on. It's the dolphin show.

We saw the shamu show earlier this year and it was great. Seems to be the same as 2010. If you seen it once, you have seen it several times. It hasn't changed.

The penguin exhibit was the best part of all. It was super cold though. After the splash zone at the dolphin show and going into 32 degree weather was not the greatest idea. We both have minor colds now that could be somehow related to the freezing cold.

The only rollercoaster that felt safe to ride. LOL. Very large metal runners/piping that will get me back on several times for that safety feeling. The only one that ever made me feel that way. Usually on any other I will be happy to be alive and say " I did it". A great day and we always enjoy the Manatee's, The Bud huge Clysdales(?) show horses, and Killerwhale shows.

I'd certainly recommend getting to the park when it opens as you can do a few of the rides before the first show starts.

Suggest that you do Manta, Kraken and then Atlantis before going to the dolphin show. Seamore and Clyde then follows and then Shamu.

Food is typical for a park but there are a few healthy options so should cater for most.

I had the best time at "Seaworld." It is a living breathing education and conservation museum with roller coasters. The staff is very knowledgeable, friendly and are ready to answer any questions that you may have about the animals. Seaworld has gotten allot of bad press lately about how the animals are treated & I was a bit reluctant to go. I was pleasantly surprised to see how well the animals are taken care of. The facility and animal exhibits are immaculate, the animals are well fed, seem to get along well with the trainers, interact well with one another, and do not appear to be stressed. The Manta exhibit was the highlight of my trip. The area is so breathtakingly beautiful.
