It's been 15 years and its nice to see that the staff has continued to upkeep the park and always caring for the animals. Could use some shade in all the seating areas of the outdoor arena.

We had such a great time at SeaWorld - I wasn't expecting to enjoy myself quite that much! Particularly as we hardly went on any rides at all! We found ourselves going to all the shows that we could. They're wonderful!

One Ocean was our favourite - was so entertaining and breath-taking. The connection the animals have with their trainers and the things they can do are unbelievable!! We stayed for the night time Shamu Rocks show too! Avoid the splash zone if you don't want to get completely SOAKED!!

We stayed on until closing time where it gets very quiet at the exhibits - you get great unobstructed views and you can take your time looking. It was also an amazing opportunity to talk to the staff, who are so helpful and knowledgable and clearly passionate about their work. They're happy for you to ask all the questions you want, it was so fascinating and educational. Would definitely loved to have spent more time there to do all the rides, exhibits, and shows. A great day out for sure!!!

We visited Universal Studios and Disneyland too but Sea World was the best - the shows are great and the swimming with dolphins although expensive, worth every penny

The kids loved Sea World our 3rd yr going. They look forward to our vacation. We all love dolphin, Sealion, and Shamu shows. They finally were old enough to get on Manta they loved it.

All the shows were great, except the dolphin show could've used more dolphins/pilot whales, less human 'show'.
