  • My toddler LOVED Sea World! We went as part of a family trip and it was a blast! Make sure to check the weather to plan accordingly and remain flexible. I HIGHLY recommend the passes. I will be paying for a Platinum Pass; it has proven it's usefulness already. There are areas that Pass Members don't have to wait in as long of a line and the discounts given are incredible, not to mention nifty. The kids enjoyed the shows and seeing their happiness was worth all the walking and standing and lugging of items. Now, that being said, souvenirs, food, etc, are super expensive (hence I recommend the Passes)! I would have given Sea World 5 stars but I took issue that we bought the reserved seating so the family could stay together and skip ques but we had to wait with everyone else and the reserved section wasn't all that great. Also, we weren't asked to show to most shows our reserved seats cards so it was money we felt we shouldn't have had to pay. They used to allow you to take snacks but policy changed days before our trip and we didn't know so we had to throw a lot of snacks and drinks (except water) at the entrance or else have to take to our cars and get back in line. Overall, it's a trip definitely needs planning, expect big expenses, take extra clothing because you'll get wet, comfy shoes for lots of walking, and take advantage of the offers that are offered.
  • We went for a day of fun with the family and it did not disappoint. Great shows and little to no wait for roller coasters. We also purchased the food pass and it was a life saver! The park was very clean and well maintained. Every staff member was very pleasant. The only downfall we had was no AC at the smokehouse and the very young manager didn't know how to properly handle the register. However, she was very nice. To many pluses not to give this place all 5 stars!
