My family and I had a great time at Sea World. Since it’s been five years, some of the attractions were gone and Sea World put new ones. Parking areas are huge but it’s very difficult to find a spot close to the theme park gates. (Tip: As soon as you enter the parking area at Sea World, pick a parking spot immediately. Do not drive around for a long time. Chances are you will wind up at the very end of the parking area.)
You can actually purchase tickets for Sea World online and in discounted prices, too. It is very helpful to buy tickets online than at the gates because you will be in a super long lines. My husband is stubborn sometimes. I planned to buy tickets the night before so we can get them cheaper but he insisted to buy the tickets at the theme park. So when we got there at around 1:00 P.M., the line was very long already. Good thing it was not too sunny that Saturday. The weather was just perfect for our Sea World adventure.
We enjoyed the thrill rides, attractions, and shows at Sea World. Few of DD’s favorites were the Journey to Atlantis and the Shamu Kids Rollercoaster. She loved the Shamu Show and the Sea Lion High Show. Shows are in timely manner so you have to decide which ones you want to watch next.
My dear husband and I were at Sea World five years ago and we tried riding the Steel Eel and the Great White. I told my DH I don’t want to ride the Steel Eel again. He didn’t want to either. I thought I was going to pass out after the ride. I lost my voice up there. I ran out of screams. 😀
My daughter enjoyed the Shamu Roller Coaster. She wanted to go again and again. We rode a couple of times and that was it. We wanted to try the Journey To Atlantis. It was the very first time my DD tried a thrill ride like that high. When she was told that she met the height requirements to ride, she remarked “Yes!”. I think I screamed the loudest up there.
