from SeaWorld San Diego
We look forward to welcoming our guests back to our park for fun, safe and memorable experiences. With your SeaWorld San Diego tickets, Reservations are no longer required.

Safely roam the spacious park grounds to enjoy our incredible open-air, outdoor and indoor animal viewing exhibits with animals including dolphins, bat rays, Magellanic penguins, reef sharks, flamingos, sea otters, orcas, seals, sea lions, turtles, moray eels, and more, will remain open in addition to SeaWorld’s world-famous Dolphin, Sea Lion and Orca Encounter live educational presentations with physically distanced seating.

New for 2022, Emperor is the newest addition to the park’s thrill rides and will be the tallest, fastest, and longest dive coaster in California, as well as the only floorless dive coaster in the state. Named after the Emperor penguin, the world’s largest penguin, the all-new Emperor coaster will mimic this species’ amazing underwater diving ability. Climbing to 153 feet with feet dangling in the air, riders will be suspended on a 45-degree angle at the crown of the ride before plunging down a 143-foot facedown vertical drop, accelerating to more than 60 miles per hour. Riders will also experience inversions, barrel roll, Immelmann loop, hammerhead turn and flat spin as they race along the nearly 2,500 feet of track. Each of the floorless ride cars will hold 18 riders in three, six-person rows. This is the first seating configuration of its kind in North America..

"Had a really good time!"
August 2022
It was a first visit for our whole family. Loved Loved the shows. The only set back we had was our 6 year old daughter is special needs. We filled out the form of the rides she could participate in. There were only 2. That's fine...but one of those we had to pay an additional $6 a piece to go on. We already pay for her to enter, knowing that most/if any rides are not an option for her. But then, 1 of 2 she can go on, we have to pay again. That is pretty frustrating as a family learning to navigate how everything will work for her as she is growing bigger.

Tip: It gets HOT! The $25 water sprayer they sell can be your best purchase. Don't miss the whale and waterworld shows, sit close!
