Sea World does a great job of taking care of people! We had little to no wait times during one of the busiest seasons. All three of our young kiddos had fun things to do. We especially loved the dolphin show because they introduce each dolphin telling how each of them like to interact and play. Other than the animals we loved the harbor area for young kids. There are lots of little rides and a huge playground!

Sea World on Easter day was fabulous. It was busy (as expected on a holiday) but the lines were not long at all. Longest line all day 40 min. for the Antartica Empire if the penguin.

The Manta ride was awesome,
felt like you were flying. Never experienced a ride like that. Not in Cedar Pointe, Michigan Adventure, Kings Island, Knotts Berry Farms or anything of Disneys.

I am an annual passholder and I bought my grandson's the three of them the fun pass. We came to SeaWorld and it's spring break. So it was us and several hundred others. But I was impressed with SeaWorld the way they handled so many people. Everything was smooth at the restaurants the bathrooms was clean the workers were friendly. I will continue with my annual passholder to support a business that does such good work for the animals of the world. We will be back soon. Thank you

This was our second trip to Sea World Orlando and it was clear this time our kids have “aged out”. We were at the park for about 5 hours and saw everything we felt was in their age range including the dolphin show and One Ocean show. The dolphin show was great, fun and entertaining. The One Ocean show was a 30-45 minute infomercial and wasn’t nearly as good. Plan to arrive at the theater 20-30 minutes before show time to get seats for either show. Arrive earlier if you want to be in the splash zone. Splash zone seats seemed to be more wet in the One Ocean show. We did not go to the otter show this time . We did go several years ago and it was great. We also did not go to the pet show; however, we did hear announcements that the seating was full, so it must be popular.

There are a few rides that aren’t kiddie rides, but we didn’t ride. Also the penguin and beluga whale exhibits do have a riding tour; however, there is a walking path for those who can’t or don’t want to ride in the cars.

My kids, 12 & 17, enjoyed feeding the Sea Lions and the penguin exhibits the most. They also did the paddle boats, which are an extra charge.

We highly recommend the pretzels outside of the dolphin theater for a snack. They are huge (easily shared) and tasty. We also bought 2 of the all day refillable soda cups, which was good for our family.
We did not invest in any of the food plans, but they were offered just inside the gate.

All in all a good trip for kids 12 and under. Kids over 12 would probably be hit or miss even if they’ve never been before, unless they really enjoy animals, as this is basically a zoo/aquarium with a few rides and a kiddie ride/jungle gym area. As with all amusement parks/zoos/aquariums, the food and souvenirs are expensive.
