"Truly entertaining"
September 2019
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
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
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.

"Haven’t been in 10 years and it’s awesome!"
August 2019
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!

We visited in early November and the park was pretty empty, but keep an eye on the times guide for the shows you want to see and get there early because some of them didn't let people in who arrived late (like the pet show). Another reviewer said there was nothing for a 6-13 year old do but that depends entirely on the child. My 10 year old did tons of stuff - he was tall enough for several coasters (of course, he's the dare devil of the family), short enough to play in Sesame land, they had rides near the Turtle exhibit for families, and he enjoyed the shows. If you don't prefer rides, they have lots of animal habitats to enjoy. The park itself is really pretty and well maintained. We really loved the turtle tank where you can get up close to the turtles swimming around. Sesame Street land is fantastic and all my kids were able to enjoy it (yes, even the 14 year old!). Keep an open mind and you can really have fun here. Stay a little bit after the pet show and you can meet some of the stars. 14 year old - Liked the roller coasters (Steel Eel, Great White) 10 year old - Liked the Steel Eel and the climbing playground in Sesame Street land 5 year old - Liked Sesame Street land

I was here for a half day I was mainly here for the roller coasters so I will mainly be talking about that but the I saw a few animal exhibits and they all seemed very nice I thought the sea turtles and penguins were pretty cool and the habitats look nice and clean. This park has a few roller coasters with two very good stand out rides Texas Stingray and Steel Eel Both of these are Excellent coasters. Wave breaker is a good family coaster the seats were a little uncomfortable for me because I'm tall but it's great for kids, and great white is another good supporting coaster. They also have journey to Atlantis which is very strange with the spinning turntable feature but it was still fun. This is nice way to spend half day it full day its definitely a half day park if your just going for the rides but that looks to he changing as they a rumoured to be getting another coaster next year. Things seem to be looking bright for this park. It's very clean and has an nice atmosphere with big lake surrounding the park. Also the food I had here was very good I had a really good bacon cheese burger. Would definitely recommend to anyone

Good time overall with my 3 year old and 10 year old! The shows were great and most of the rides were fine for us. I will admit there was quite a few attractions limited to 52” or taller. So we adjusted, one day pass worked fine for us.

"For kids aged 6 to 13, there are no rides in this park. There are no rides that can be experienced by the entire family..."
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed March 12, 2020 NEW
If you have kids aged 1 to 5, there are several rides in the Sesame Street area, and if you have older teenagers (who are taller than 54 inches), they will enjoy the extreme roller coasters, but if you have kids between 6 and 13, there are no rides in this park for this age group. There are no rides built to be ridden and experienced by the whole family. The big attraction of Disney parks is they contain rides that the whole family can experience together. For example, the Magic Kingdom at Disney World has 19 rides that can be ridden by everyone in the family aged 4+. Due to height restrictions and ride design, SeaWorld San Antonio has 1 (Journey to Atlantis). This one ride is a wet ride that will leave you soaked. If you have a group that does not want to walk around the park soggy and uncomfortable, there are 0 rides that the family can experience together. I understand that big, extreme roller coasters are easy to advertise and can draw crowds, but I don’t understand why parks like SeaWorld and Six Flags don’t emulate Disney’s family friendly approach and build rides that the whole family can enjoy together.

Utterly amazing experience to see the Killer Whales, they are amazing animals. You should sit close to the front to get the full experience 😜. The dolphin and beluga whale presentation is wonderful. As is taking in the Sea Lions. Don't forget to see the Sharks, stingrays, and penguins. Everything at Sea world is worth taking the time to sea.
