    A great theme park that let's you be up close with marine life. The shows are great for all ages and the park is truly beautiful. Come off season to have the park all to yourself. Craft Beer on site.

    You can see shamu's show, and some other live animal shows as well, has some rides and mechanical games, it has restaurants, food court, souvenir store, a place excellent for children and adults too

    Overall a great place to take your family. If you go in December like we did, bring an umbrella and jackets. Also, change of clothes/towels for the kids, you get soaked from certain rides/shows.

    Go see the Sea Lion Live (SLL) show!! Of all the great shows you can hit, this is one you can NOT miss. The trainers get really involved, the sea lions and otter are very talented, and it's funny!

    The best deal is the Preferred Seating upgrade. Not well advertised, but it's only $10 - and makes it so you can basically get last minute great seats at any of the shows. A real time saver!

    If you are in san diego CA. You must visit there. You can not see such a unique place around the world. You would see a lot of fish together from different family.

    We went in September when the park was "dead" and the shows were still almost full each time. I can't imagine how busy it is during peak times. Due to lack of crowd, could walk on rides and stay on.

    Show are fun to watch but dont offer as many animal tricks as one would expect. If you can split your visit into 2 parts (shows early, rides later) your have more fun without feeling rushed.

    This place gets a bad rep. I came here as a little boy & just returned for my second time with my girlfriend for our anniversary. You can tell Sea World loves their animals! I recommend it to anyone!

    Go on a weekday... Packed with tourists and strollers! $15 to park and pack snacks. You are allowed to bring in your own food. It will save you some big bucks!

    If you want to enjoy roller-coaster take a splashproof clothes with you. Dryers are not worth spending $5. Remember to go to the "One Ocean" show (killer whales) - its much better than "Blue Horizon".

    Plan your time at Seaworld so you see the animals during their feeding times - really cool and interactive. Also, beautiful Seaworld firework shows nightly during summer months!

    If you're a Southern CA resident you can get the "Fun Card" for the same price as regular admission, but it gives you access to the park for the whole year!

    Love the dolphin show and the shamu show light up the night was amazing, but I miss the trainers being able to ride and swim with the orcas.

    Absolute soaking immediately behind the platform opposite the big screens. We were in the soak zone to the left of centre with a great view but minimal soaking.

    All you can eat deal for $25! My 1 meal, entree w/side & drink came out to $18. The all you can eat deal (3 venues during the week, 5 on weekends) is a great value. Yours truly, Jubba da hut =)

    I loved it because of all the larger sea animals we got to see up close, but I felt it was lacking an educational approach. It was more a theme park with some animals in it.

    You can watch the fireworks from anywhere around Crown Point Shores or Sail Bay, an added bonus (and a built-in clock) to all the residents who live there.

    From their shows to restaurants; Sea World, San Diego is educational, and is fun for everyone. It's a must see when you are in San Diego.

    This is definitely must-see place, although I personally don't like the idea to create such this places. Frankly, I find it amazing but I'm very upset for the animals.

    My wife and I think they have the best popcorn around. Get the bucket and bring it back anytime for a refill for about $2.

    We always love visiting SeaWorld. Lots of new things have been added over the last 3 years. Worth a visit if you haven't been in a while.

    When @SeaWorld puts on their "Halloween Spooktacular", they have stations where they pass out candy to kids! Definitely excellent!

    The shows are very entertaining. Don't waste your time on the Manta if the line's long, Journey to Atlantis is pretty fun, and also, BRING FAST FOOD. The food is SO overpriced. 6.99 for 4 fried shrimp

    We dare you to go see Shamu, the penguins, and turtles, follow that with a nice ride on the Journey to Atlantis, and top it off with a nice dinner at the Calypso Bay Smokehouse.

    SeaWorld was founded in 1964 on 22 acres by four graduates of UCLA. Their original idea was to build an underwater restaurant. The park grew into a marine park now spanning 189 acres.

    Lots of fun but it can get pricey. Parking is $15 now! That plus drinks/ snacks adds up!

    If you plan on coming here at least 4 times, get a Silver Annual Pass. Otherwise, parking fees here will make you wish you did.

    If you only have time for one show I suggest the shamu show. The best 25 mins of my visit!

    The meal wrist bands are a good deal but to make them really worth your money be sure to have at least 2 meals.

    Feeding the sea lions is fun, but watch out because the neighboring seagulls are aggressive and will snatch the fish right out of your hand.

    Keep your eye open for the sea world characters (shamu, o.p. other, etc.). And remember they can sign autographs and you can take your own photos. Or just come up for a hug.

    Shipwreck ride gets you partially wet, Atlantis gets you Soaked! Also, if you're flirty with the popcorn stand boys (by Shipwreck) you can get a refill price.
