It wasn't what we expected. Shows have changed a lot. It is more about conservation then a show. aquarium parts are small and the rides are not that good. The night show was the best part with the acrobats on water!

Loved the fun dolphin show and the dog and cat show. Loved the rides and the manta rays. It is good that the two Orca whales there no longer have to do tricks.

We enjoyed the "new" SeaWorld. Much more focus on caring for the animals. We had a great time. The rides broke down a couple of times just before my husband & daughters got on but overall it was fine. Didn't seem crowded at all. We...More

If it's a warm day, you can find shade inside some of the exhibits which are air conditioned, particularly the penguin exhibit - that's cool for the penguins. Also, the water ride will cool you down. Bring a floppy hat and... More
