  • We had a grea day out with our two boys. Beautiful weather and the rides were brilliant. Watched the orca show and then later on the dolphins. With the dolphins I felt uncomfortable with them pulling ...  more »
  • We really enjoyed observing all of the animals and sea-creatures. It is pretty incredible that the trainers of the creatures can do, train the way they do. Hats off to the trainers. Also, hats off to ...  more »
  • Very good theme park: about animal attractions and roller coasters. I went in April 2018 and there were few shows like the killer whales and dolphins. The Aquariums are pretty simple. The already large marine animals are sensational. The roller coasters are also excellent. Is somewhat less than the Orlando Park.

  • We had a fantastic day. Certainly pricey, but very happy with the attractions and more than impressed with the food! We sprung for the eat all day plan. This was awesome. Got food and drinks every hour that we wanted. We stopped fairly often to sample the great variety offered and to be sure we stayed hydrated. So easy with the bottled water option. Didn't have to carry around our own and went home with extras. The food was very tasty ,fresh, and interesting. Was thrilled with the portions since we got to choose a side or dessert very time! A great deal for those planning to splurge on the diet. Many options though make it easy for a variety of tastes. Very happy with our day enjoying the animals and feeling like a mini vacation.
  • Sea World is an amazing place that does amazing things. Your trip helps fund rescues and rehab for injured sea life year round. While you are at the park you can see many animals up close like dolphins, otters, sharks, and many others. They also offer many behind the scenes tours for an additional price. There are a variety of food places with good quality food at reasonable prices. I recommend buying a souvenir cup as you will get free refills day of purchase. This will always be on of my favorite places.
  • It was a great experience I would recommend everyone come to see this place at least once in there life. It's best to get the tickets online and get the eating pass because it's worth it. I was there all day and seen all the shows and all the exhibits. However we didn't have enough time to get to the rides so plan accordingly. Also it's best to get there earlier because the parking spots fill up quickly. I would definitely go here again to see sea life up close and personal.
  • Visited on 04/20/2018. I have an annual pass and brought my friend for free guest. We both bought all-day-dinning passes. Unfortunately, the park lost power and had to close early. We were also in the middle of trying to get a refill for our souvenir bottles and was directed to 4 other locations by Sea World staffs and turned away before we gave up. Those staffs (one even looked like he could be a supervisor) did not apologize for the inconvenience, they just suggested to try the other snack stands, which all had to close early as well. We finally headed towards the exit and were able to buy the refill as we were leaving the park. I was pretty bummed and at the last minute decided to go talk to guest service. Jose was the first staff to apologize and gave us a card to contact Sea World by email or phone if we didn't want to wait in line to talk to guest service. We stayed in line and Sonia in guest service was kind enough to reissue a return admission for my guest and meal tickets for our next visit. Sometimes things don't go as planned and are out of our control but I would like to say thank you again to Jose and Sonia for their professionalism and for valuing us as Sea World customers. Thank you.
  • We loved our recent SeaWorld visit. The kids loved the Dolphin and Sea Lion shows. My middle child was the volunteer for the dolphin show and her life was made when she had the opportunity to let a dolphin. We loved the touch exhibits like Aquaria where we got finger hugs from urchins. My kids really enjoy the touch exhibits at the entrance too. They like letting the fish nibble on their fingers. We caught the Otter feeding which was informative and incredibly cute. The rides were all great. Food was mediocre and expensive ($75 for 5 people for lunch).
