SeaWorld San Antonio
This wet theme park is a treat for anyone who loves animals, roller coasters and fabulous shows. Not only does SeaWorld San Antonio have Shamu (the performing killer whale), it also has walk-through habitats where you can watch sea lions, sharks, fish, penguins and flamingos do what they would do in the wild. For those who crave being a part of the action, there is an inverted roller coaster (do this on an empty stomach), along with a variety of water rides, which after riding not a hair on your head will be dry. Check out the water-skiing shows and the restaurants and be sure to stick around at night for laser shows and seasonal concerts.
We had a fantastic time! Nice weather, crowds were not really bad that day, very clean park, and my husband was able to rent a mobilized car so he could enjoy the park with the 3 grandchildren and me. We enjoyed the rides and all the shows were just wonderful. The food was expensive but it is in most amusement parks. We had a wonderful time. I don't have enough space to talk about all the shows we enjoyed. The water rides were the children's favorite rides and I enjoyed them sooo much myself! What a way to cool off!
I absolutely loved SeaWorld! I went in July '04 and I am going back this year in June '05. I had an amazing time. In 2004 I only allowed for one day at the park which was not enough so this year I am allowing two days because there is so much stuff to do that I want to be able to see everything. Last time there were 7 different shows to see plus all of their other attractions with animals. I didn't even go to any of their roller coasters or water activities because just the shows and animal activities kept me busy. I would recommend SeaWorld to anyone! One thing that will help is if you go online to www.seaworld.com and see what all SeaWorld has to offer for when you are there so you can get an idea of what you want to get to see before you arrive at the park. It will allow you to plan out your day better so you can utilize all of your time at the park and not waste any of it.
This was my first trip to any of the Seaworld Amusement Parks.
The shows were terrific. The show with Shamu was definately one of the highlights to my trip. The downside is that ther are only four live shows. Ofcourse, there are more attractions, such as an aquarium, a dolphin pool and several animal encounters in which you can see the animals being fed.
Also, there are two rollercoasters in addition to some water riders. The rollercoasters (the Steel Eel and the Great White were both very enjoyable, but like the park itself, they were over quickly.
The shows make this park with seeing; the two roller coasters are just a bonus. At the price of admission, it's not something I would do on every trip to San Antonio, but since this was my first trip to a SeaWorld, I consider it a good value.
