Had the most amazing time at Sea World. I was able to spend some quality time with my 2 granddaughters, grandson, son, daughter, daughter in law and friends. We used the Reserve America website to purchase our tickets in to the park. Very easy to use. Sea World was amazing, fun and clean. Thank you for a great day!!

I bought my ticket through Reserve San Diego. It was easy to book, and made my trip even fun since I got a great deal. I high recommend this website for anyone who wants to plan a trip with easy convenient of not waiting in line in person. My trip to Sea world was amazing. Anytime I can take my kids where it is fun family entertainment is a plus for me. Can wait to go back to Sea World.
Tip: It get a bit cold at night so take a light jacket and great location to find a hotel to stay.

Not sure what happened during our visit, but there were almost no lines all day! Roller coasters were great for our speed'tolerance, the Orca and Dolphin shows were good, and aside from the usual high theme park prices, the food options were plentiful and not crowded either. Definitely worth a visit, but I imagine that we lucked out with the crowds (5-10 minute waits). Washrooms and grounds clean and well-kept.

We have visited SeaWorld many times over the years. It has definitely taken a hit by animal activists. The dolphin show was a must! They were opening the new whale exhibit the weekend after we had went.

"Great day and inexpensive with GoCity Card."
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed March 28, 2017 NEW
We bought the GoCity card which included SeaWorld if you got a 3 day pass. --$35.99 all you can eat is more than worth the price. If anything, we ate a little too much as a result. The food tasted fresh and there were healthy options instead of only desserts there were fruits too. The lines were pretty short which was a blessing because we expected wait time for being a Sunday. The only negative is you do not need to be able to eat every hour. Make it $30 a person and allow people to eat every two hours instead. You probably have people eat hourly because they can which is a waste of food. --$50 each person for behind the scene tour with penguins was well worth the price! We paid almost $200 per person to swim with dolphins once which was fun, but the penguin encounter was a much better deal for the price. We really appreciated how we were able to see a penguin up close, get pics, pet the penguin, go to the back to see all penguins, and one of the animal keepers came out and talked to us. He was very knowledgeable and so interesting! --The shows were good, but I thought in the past (and it's been years since we visited) that if you were late to a show you could not enter. Now they let people enter late and it's really distracting. People should not be allowed late into shows! --For being a small place, we sure had our day packed with fun. We were bummed that they closed so early. Can't wait to go back in a few years.

When we go to San Diego the grandkids love to go to SeaWorld​. They love the multiple​ animals they get to see, the shows that are put on, and they love to get wet. We usually make a day of it and try to cram as much as we can see and do into that day. We usually eat at the park the cost is a little high but the food is good. Great place for kids of all ages

"Still a fun place even though my kids are turning into teenagers"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed March 27, 2017 NEW
Since we are San Diego residents, from time to time we have owned annual passes for Sea World. My kids used to love going to Sea World as kids. Recently, When friends came to visit from out of town, and suggested going to Sea world, I was hesitant and doubted if my kids would still enjoy Sea World. I'm glad to say that they still enjoy Sea World as teenagers. There are many rides that are still enjoyable for older kids. If you have older kids or teenagers, don't hesitate to take them.
