The main reason for going here was for the animals not the rides. Dolphins, pets, seals and of course orca shows were great. Whilst all the trainers and people working directly with the animals were enthusiastic about their jobs other staff in the park were less so and didn't seem to be bothered. This was especially noticeable after visits to Disney and Universal parks. Luckily we had booked a package which included Discovery Cove which meant we didn't have to pay for parking at Seaworld. Prices for food was high as with most other parks in Orlando and of course you can't take food in to eat as we could at some of the other places. Compared to other parks we visited this seemed a little tired and not sure how Seaworld will compete with the other larger parks once the Orcas disappear.
