“Great memories”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

Great family fun for all ages! The shows were amazing, especially loved the Blue Horizon dolphin show. My 10 year old son loved the Manta roller coaster. The views of San Diego from the sky tower were breathtaking. Would highly recommend purchasing the economical Southern California City Pass if going to Anaheim and San Diego (includes Disneyland 3 day hopper pass, Universal Studios 1 day pass, SeaWorld 1 day pass).

“Great family vacation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

I bought a season pass for my brother's family and I went with them including my 3 and 4 year old niece and nephew. We had a blast. This was their 2nd or 3rd time so sthey already knew what they liked. Unlike other parks, you can bring in food and drinks which helps cut down the cost. The shows wwere great for young kids. My nephew and niece didn't go on many rides. I think they'll have to be few years older to enjoy the rides but still had a blast.

Still, the best Christmas gift I could've gotten them.

“Fish, Sharks, Turtles, and more”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

Its expensive to get in, but its a great time to be had.
tip one- see exibits during show times as to avoid crowds.
tip two- look for tickets on craigslist as to see if there are people selling them for a better price.

“Splash Zone a must”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

Had a fantastic day at Seaworld. Went mid week in October and there where no lines anywhere. Rides were short, but with no line this was great. Anyway you don't go to seaworld for the rides, the shows were great. The killer whales didn't disapoint but be warned you will get wet in the splash zone, but you have to do it.

Food is pretty reasonable and there is a good choice, even the gifts are resonabily priced.

All in all a great day out in San Diego.
