  • My toddler LOVED Sea World! We went as part of a family trip and it was a blast! Make sure to check the weather to plan accordingly and remain flexible. I HIGHLY recommend the passes. I will be paying for a Platinum Pass; it has proven it's usefulness already. There are areas that Pass Members don't have to wait in as long of a line and the discounts given are incredible, not to mention nifty. The kids enjoyed the shows and seeing their happiness was worth all the walking and standing and lugging of items. Now, that being said, souvenirs, food, etc, are super expensive (hence I recommend the Passes)! I would have given Sea World 5 stars but I took issue that we bought the reserved seating so the family could stay together and skip ques but we had to wait with everyone else and the reserved section wasn't all that great. Also, we weren't asked to show to most shows our reserved seats cards so it was money we felt we shouldn't have had to pay. They used to allow you to take snacks but policy changed days before our trip and we didn't know so we had to throw a lot of snacks and drinks (except water) at the entrance or else have to take to our cars and get back in line. Overall, it's a trip definitely needs planning, expect big expenses, take extra clothing because you'll get wet, comfy shoes for lots of walking, and take advantage of the offers that are offered.
  • Business model of the sea world has to be revisited considering the comfort of the people. a lot has to change in the operating model. we have to waste lot of time in standing queue under 100 degrees for hours to enjoy any rides or to get a slice of pizza. A 13 year old girl passed out waiting in food court almost an hour. seriously they have to put in shelters in place and other possible ways to address the heat issue. If they can plan the place to be human friendly that would be great. We are in 2022 and still the system in place looks like 1980. Lot can be improved. if not major changes, small changes and minor addition in facility wise would go a long way. From Parking - at least there can be ride made available for senior citizens or people who have difficulty to move around. Again, a lot can be done to make this place better, but seems the only aim is milk money from the people. More than a fun it becomes headache and torture to take 2 kids and go in and come out alive. My cousin got headache with the too much of heat and waiting for a ride for 1.5 hours and at the end the ride was not that great.
  • We went for a day of fun with the family and it did not disappoint. Great shows and little to no wait for roller coasters. We also purchased the food pass and it was a life saver! The park was very clean and well maintained. Every staff member was very pleasant. The only downfall we had was no AC at the smokehouse and the very young manager didn't know how to properly handle the register. However, she was very nice. To many pluses not to give this place all 5 stars!
  • Such an amazing place to visit. Lots of fun attractions and loved seeing all the beautiful and smart animals. Would recommend visiting when it isn’t torching hot outside. I definitely got a tan. Wait times for rides were ridiculous though. I only went on one ride called the Rio Loco. Waited exactly 1 hour and 47 minutes for a 2 minute ride. Recommend going very early to find a nice parking spot. I arrived at 10am when it opens at 10:30. Even then half of the parking spots were full already. Food and drinks of course were super expensive. Recommend bringing your own water bottle there. Spent around $400 on food and drinks alone. We spent a lot of money on water.. All the shows were amazing. These sea animals are truly talented. I hope they are getting the best treatment ever.
  • Great theme park. It’s smaller than the Orlando Park but the rides and the shows are top rated. Definitely one of the best attractions of Texas and San Antonio. Get the tickets ahead of time online to get a pretty good deal. If you go in the summer, bring your refillable water bottle, because there are refill stations all around the park. You can buy a refillable cup and get others drinks the whole day (good deal for the price). Also you can buy the Quick Pass per attraction or the whole park to save time.
