when i went in 2008 it was so great. now we were so disappointed. when we walked thru the door we had to throw away a sandwhich? REALLY? then we got shafted at the dolphins, had to walk all the way back past the entrance to get in a line to get tickets to feed them then stand in line again to wait. then in the aquarium (you would think would be good considering the name is SEAWORLD) theres a big talk when you first walk in with nothing but crappy perch. nothing else! there's no walrus anymore, the orca show hardly delivered and dont expect a balooga whale in the balooga whale show either. what happened to SeaWorld???

The problems I had trying to book special visits over the phone - were far too numerous to mention!! Park was clean. Employees - very nice! Paid extra to do the behind the scenes tour with the dolfin and penguin. Both were great! Got pics with both and got to pet both! Kids loves the roller coasters! Enjoyed the Shamu Show!

We visited Sea World for my twins 6th birthday and we all had a blast!!! The ages of our group ranged from 3-mid 30's and everyone enjoyed themselves. There was plenty for everyone to do and see. The park was only open for 6 hours that day so we were hurried to fit everything in but we can not wait to get back there next summer and have more time to enjoy ourselves.

We have been to Sea World many times and always have a great time. My advice is spring for the back stage experience if you can. We have done the one in Sea World San Diego and the Penguin encounter in San Antonio and bother were fabulous!!!

Seaworld has done a great job of making the park excellent for young families. My children really love the extras like splash park, playgrounds, and kids shows. The new water park is way to expensive after the costly entry and parking fee in my opinion. The shows have gone down hill in my opinion but the kids still love it
