My husband and teenage boys enjoyed SeaWorld San Diego. I was a little less impressed due to the small Orca show since the new Orca Expo is to open. Overall, I was not as thrilled as Orlando.

We truly enjoyed visiting Seaworld with our 2 high school aged children. We all learned alot about the sea creatures that we were viewing, the shows were top notch, food was decent, and the park is in great shape. Use your AAA card to receive a discount on the park entrance

It was nice. Everyone was very helpful. It was a beautiful day. I did miss the shamu show even though they had another show it wasn't as good.

Family trip. Were locals but always love coming here. The sea lion and seal show is funny and really cool. Also the new water patk looks like fun for summer.

Well we splurged for the all inclusive ticket. Unfortunately, that's not what we received. No reserved seats at any show. And several rides were closed for the entire day we were there. We did get all day dining, which would have worked if the food was good. Which it wasn't. Now the folks who work there are the only saving... More

Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry to hear that your last visit to the park was less than what you expected. We strive to provide the best experience and service possible to our guests. I'm surprised to hear that several rides were closed all day as we try to schedule maintenance so that very few rides are affected. However,... More

We took our kids (10 and 8) and had an amazing time. We watched the Sea Lion, Dolphin and Orca shows and the Orca's was, in comparison, quite boring. I'd assume this is because SW has been forced to defend its position having mammals in captivity. Everyone's entitled to their opinion, but I loved the learning my kids had as... More

There is too much to see and do and not enough time to do it all. I would definitely recommend the all-day dining pass, well worth the money. The entrance fee includes all the rides and shows. Tours or interaction activities are additional costs.

We brought our 2 teenage sons to southern California to see all the attractions we could fit in a weeks time. Seaworld was the favorite place they especially loved the Manta roller coaster!! We did the front of the line passes and the all day dining which were both well worth the money spent.

The staff at this San Diego are SO MUCH FUN! We loved the shows though they were a little less polished than Florida. The animals and food were good too! We just wish they had shade covers like some of the other locations do!
