Love the animal conservation aspect of the park, just wish there was more to do that didn't have additional costs. Food there is way more expensive than even the zoo, and even the larger amusement parks...it's nice to visit once in a while...

Our first time visiting Sea World. The shows are fantastic and the rides are perfectly suited for families with children. Be prepared to get wet if you ride the rides. Also be prepared to walk! A lot!

This is a fun park to visit! Friendly and helpful staff. My daughter became over-heated and the staff took great care of her. We lunched with the Orcas and the food was outstanding! Will return every time we visit San Diego!

We took snacks and drinks in backpacks...no problem...but they do check bags and anything you carry in to the park for security reasons..

I would recommend the quick pass unless you plan on riding the rides only when the park first opens.
