I'm amazed at how nice SeaWorld is. I need to check this out next time I'm in the area. I always thought it was just another Marine World.Atlantis is super cool looking.
The picture setup is sure cool. Thanks guys.

the park looks in good constion actually.. I wonder how bad SWO looks right now?? (penguine exhibit needs update as well.. maybe make the area match the atlantis themeing in orlando since thats where it is.. lol)
not enough themeing??... this is anheuser busch, they are learning.
We were there this past summer for two days! We did the DIP (dolphin interaction program) where you suit up in the lovely wet suits and jump in the 60 degree water with a dolphin! Totally priceless! Our kids loved it!
And we did everything there was to do! Stayed til closing every night...
Dusty - do they still have that gymnastics/drums show at the end of the night?
It might have been a summer thing..but it was one of the most amazing shows I've seen in a while!
And I have to agree with whoever posted it....do not ride the rapids ride here if you do not want to get soaked...completely! Down to your underwear! NOT pleasant!
Awww i took my kids there in August 2 years ago, and I did not see half the stuff you just did. my kid cried thewholetime we were there, it was not a good day! I wish now I saw all this, I thought we saw it all until I just saw the shamu. we had breakfast with shamu, I thought that was it darn, now it makes me want to go there again!
great trip report!!
Exactly. The park isn't too big and you sit for 25 minutes or more for each show. If you plan the day right, you can go from one show to the next with about half an hour between them. Just remember:
"If you're sitting in the first 12 rows, there's something that you ought to know. There's a 50/50 bet, you'll get 100% wet!"
Keep dad dry and don't run him from one side of the park to the other and he'll have a grand ol' time.
awe, yes...I have gotten soaked before...LOL...now we just go to guest relations and tell them what times we'll be at the show and we just show up for our seats. They are not in the soak zone...It was great during the busy summer .......We'll probably go when it warms up more. My father does not like the cold so much...
I was wondering if Sea World still had the Commerson's Dolphins (the black and white ones). They have had them on display for at least 15 years. I am fascinated by them! I love the penguins, too. Glad to hear that their display will be refurbished soon.
The arctic display is pretty neat. Love the polar bears!!!
As you mentioned, Shamu and the Dolphin show are standards,
but I also enjoy the Sea Lion and Otter show, did you see that?
Whenever I have visited Sea World, the park has always been
clean and well kept up. But, as mentioned most everything is
outside, so it's real easy to get a sunburn. So for anyone planning
on going, be sure to bring sunscreen, sunglasses and hats,
because your gonna get A LOT of sun, (if it's not raining).
Atlantis is cool. But nothing to hype over about. The Atlantis tank is cool.
The dance/ talent show at the entrance called Riptide only plays in the summer. A LOT of people, including myself, found it boring and left.
Cirque del a mar only plays in the summer, too. But it's really great.
The fireworks show in the summer is lame. I wouldn't wait for it.
A new Shamu show arrives called Believe.
Great photos, the park is all right.
FLA's atlantis is cool, but could be rehabbed, it's less coaster more water portion...
We have a cirque type show that is year round... in the oddysee theater.
the fireworks show is alright, but could be improved.. little kid dreaming after a day at Seaworld, and then is underwater and wants to see his friend shamu.. lol ends with thatm, mostly water projections... and at end alot of low level pyro.
Believe is coming soon to FLA.. after it comes to SD i belive
You know - I have not been to SW since I stopped working there in 2001 (ride op at shipwreck). I really have had no interest in going back... but this report actually made me consider it for a few seconds
Sounds like we need a non-Disney MiceChat meet and go have fun with Shamu!
I agree! Next to Disneyland, Sea World is my favorite. I could just stay at the dolphin petting pool all day, and I love the Penguin Eno****er plus I love to watch the puffins next door. It's been a few years since I've been there and now that I've seen your wonderful (and creative) pictures, I really want to go again.
