"Truly entertaining"
September 2019 NEW
Had a blast, it was hot, but we had a blast. A bit pricey inside the park but it was expected.
We went on the Baluga Whale Tour where we learned alot about them as well as getting to interact with the whales and got to pet them. That was awesome. My 8 yr old autistic son really enjoyed that, as well as my 13 yr old daughter, my husband and myself. That was a special moment for us as a family!! The staff was amazing..

"Anniversary Trip"
August 2019 NEW
Dolphin Exhibit was a very interesting piece the knowledge of the workers was very eye opening, the Roller coasters were a great way to add to the fun, was able to sit and see the dolphins do their tricks. The only issue I had were the bees surrounding the fountain drinks, but despite all it was a nice trip, it was my first time ever at SeaWorld and my wife first time since she was a kid, all staff were very nice and attentive and would happily answer any questions we asked.

"Sea world ticket purchase"
August 2019 NEW
I must admit I truly panicked when you said you’d change the purchase price on my final payment page AFTER I’d already given you all my info and you said you’d charge my card immediately after I clicked “purchase”. I’ve never heard of changing the real price for security reasons and I was scared. It all worked out fine, you charged me a few cents less than my calculated price, but it was quite scary not knowing what price you were switching to.

As the title states I haven’t been there in 10 years and it’s awesome! So many new rides and exhibits. I would recommend bringing clothes to get wet in and a change of undergarments. There’s a few water rides that you can get soaked on. Tons of fun!

"Easy Peasy!"
August 2019 NEW
I'm typically skeptical about 3rd party sites for purchases as it seems many are hard to trust these days HOWEVER, I am very pleased with Tripster! The process was simple, quick, efficient, and saved us a ton of money! We had a blast at Sea World and had no issues with our purchase. We will definitely be using their services again and referring Tripster to family and friends. Thanks Tripster!

Tip: Bring swimsuits to get wet in Sesame Street Bay- it was a HOT day, getting soaked was exactly what we needed! Grab a map first and decide which shows and rides you will visit so youre not running back and forth.

"Amazing!"

Reviewed September 15, 2019 NEW
What a wonderful place! since I was a child I wanted to visit it and finally I did it. So this visit was a dream come true, the most beautiful animals I've seen (I love aquatic animals) I enjoyed so much to tears. Every show was awesome, the trainers were completely connected with the animals, I mean they have real connection ❤️ The park is enormous so you should wear comfortables shoes, I didn’t try the food, but I did buy a refillable thermo with plastic orcas on lid to drink all that I want during the day, like water, soda, ice, sweet tea etcetera, if you love whales like I do you must stay to the Shamu celebration! The final show Is the hydro power extreme, those guys are crazy! And end the night with amazing fireworks, definitely it was an awesome birthday to me. The one day ticket worths what it cost. But I recommend to buy the annual pass to get free parking and additional benefits!

"Nice Attraction "
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed September 09, 2019 NEW
This place is really a good place to go especially if you have children. Of course it's kind of pricey especially if you're buying food and don't have any special discount tickets which include food and drinks, which we did not. The only problems that we had was the parking fee was expensive and we went in August when the temperature was around 100 degrees!! Way to hot to be walking around in the heat! My suggestion would be to go when it's cooler, whenever that is in Texas, and also get a dinning plan included with your tickets. Nice attractions though.

"Behind the scenes is awesome "
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed September 06, 2019 NEW
In August they do a “Behind the scene” and it’s incredible. This allows you to go in and the both the rehab and non-entertaining living areas. To see both quality of life and meet the caretakers. I understand that people have strong feelings about keeping them in captivity and I agree that they should not be kept just for entertainment. But I believe SeaWorld is truly changing there process and becoming a leader in aquatic life rehabilitation. The care that is give to the beautiful animals is sub par to none and I believe they truly do care about them. Please do go and check this out and enjoy up close encounters with these amazing caretakers and beautiful animals. They have moved from the entertainment business to the preservation of the species and in the future will only have animals that are being rehabilitated or are not able to make it on their own in the wild. So go enjoy this short time with them and and make sure to thank the staff for both their hard work and passion for the amazing animals. Make sure to go early because it gets hot quickly lol.

"Fun Visit When There Aren't Crowds"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed September 04, 2019 NEW
Overall, we had a fun time. I would suggest going during the week and not on the weekend. Their poor management of lines and rides makes for super long lines for everything in the park. This park could be really nice but due to poor management and upkeep it is starting to really shows and it's age and seems to have gotten worse in the 2 years since our last visit. Below is a list of our observations from our most recent visit. + Our kids love the Sesame Street Bay of Play area and seeing the characters. + The Orca show and Beluga/Dolphin shows are great. We had no issue getting seats. + The dining deal is great when added in advance ($15 per day). Not sure it would be worth the full price though. + Wave Breaker is a great ride and Atlantas was better than I expected. + Aquatica was lots of fun and the little sides are fun for little ones. + Virtually empty park on Friday. No lines for anything. + Stingray experience is fun and kids 2 and under are free. Would be a great value add if they included a one time use quick queue pass for Stingray Falls with the experience. - Very poor line management for the restaurants. - Inconsistent info on what you get with the All-Day Dining. Some places told us that the fries with the burger were the side, while other plays said that they were part of the enter and that we could get an additional side or dessert. - More inconsistente messaging for the All-Day Dining where the website says that it's every 90 minutes (which is correct) bu the actual ticket says every 2 hours. - Bees were everywhere, not as bad as I expected from other reviews, but it was noticeable. - Don't waste your money on the SeaWorld branded toy souvenirs. Our son got the wave runner and truck. Both have had pieces fall off due to poor quality, not rough play. The people that come with them have their legs fall off super easy. Contacted SeaWorld about it and they said that we had to pay to ship it back to them for a replacement or refund. - Rio Loco isn't worth the wait if it's over a few minutes. - Most of the rides are very old and rough. - Aquatica opened about 20 minutes late and then almost all of the slides were closed for the first few hours. - Overall, employees are in a bad mood and not nice. We did encounter some nice ones, but they were by far the exception. - The weekend was very busy and due to their poor crowd management and ride ops the lines were very very long. Not worth a visit to SeaWorld on the weekend. - Park is very outdated and needs serious updates. - Lack of rides for kids over 36" but under 50"
