from SeaWorld San Diego
At SeaWorld® San Diego, you’ll connect with the sea and get in the Halloween spirit with your favorite animals, candies and characters as you enjoy fall-flavored food & brews!

Playful characters and seasonal décor will catch your eye. Candy and other concoctions will treat your taste buds. And as always, the park will be alive with amazing animals to visit. It’s all waiting for your family, with new safety procedures to put your mind at ease.

As part of our continued commitment to the safety of our guests and Ambassadors, and in accordance with the Regional Stay at Home order issued by the State of California, we are temporarily closing SeaWorld San Diego. This temporary closure is effective 12/7 and will remain in place until the Southern California Region’s zoos are permitted to reopen.

All guests 2 years of age and older must wear face coverings while in the park. Safely roam the spacious park grounds to enjoy our incredible open-air, outdoor animal viewing exhibits with animals including Orcas, Explorer’s Reef with Bamboo Sharks, Cleaner Fish and Horseshoe Crabs and Rays, Sea Lions, Otters, Magellanic Penguins, Dolphins, Flamingos and more! Also attend SeaWorld’s world-famous Dolphin, Sea Lion and Orca Encounter live educational presentations with physically distant seating.

Coasters, rides and arcade games will not be open until further notice. The State of California has not issued theme park reopening guidelines, which has resulted in the temporary closure of all coasters and rides, including Skytower, Bayside Skyride and Sesame Street® Bay of Play children’s play area.

"Shows were Excellent"
January 2020
You're kind of busy running from show to show to make sure you get a good seat.
Do NOT buy the Reservations. Unless you get there 30-45 min early, they get full quick. All the other seats were just fine. So we wasted $20 there.
The All Day Food was worth it. The problem is you're running to shows so we only got to eat 3 times instead of our original plan of 4 or 5 times. We ate right at opening, then lunch somewhere then end of day. We tried to get in 1 more but lines were too long and we would have missed shows.

The shows will have you ooooing, ahhhhing and laughing. They were all great!

"Great park for visit with the Family."
November 2019
Great park with amaizing and fast rollercoasters, great for visit on hot weather due to its wet attractions. The food could be improved but it is a winner in general.
