So sad how they treat their animals. The animals only perform for the incentive of food. When not performing, orcas are left in small cages with very little stimulus when they should be swimming hundreds of miles out in the wild. Due to the entertainment industry, whales in sea world have lost instinctive habits and would unfortunately no longer survive in the wild.

I went to seaworld in San Diego when I was younger and I thought it was so cool because I was obsessed with dolphins and whales. The rides they have there are pretty cool too and I think its cool how they have a coaster with VR. The way the animals (killer whales) are treated isn't really acceptable though.

SeaWorld is the ultimate amusement park. Individuals of all ages can receive the best of both worlds. Deciding between going to a water park and amusement park is no loner an issue. With SeaWorld you can get both experiences in one. SeaWorld has thrilling wet roller coasters, slides, and much more. SeaWorld is definitely the fun spot for a family vacation of even an outing.

The dolphins live in a 2 by 2 container. Talk about animal cruelty. The only good thing there was the fish pond that suck on your hands. Everything else is sad to see. They should build way bigger aquariums for the animals.

We spent a wonderful day in Sea World last year for Spring Break. The weather was fantastic and the kids all had a great time. I was a little worried about the Shamu show being a little different than what I remembered but it was interesting and informative. The hardest thing was the Food. Several of the things weren't opened and there were long lines to get food.
