There are multiple SeaWorld park locations across the country. The very first SeaWorld park though was the one to open in San Diego. SeaWorld is world famous and the preeminent aquatic parks and research stations in the world. SeaWorld is home to the world famous Shamu and family.
SeaWorld is more then just a theme park. SeaWorld also has lots of educational exhibits and shows. SeaWorld is more of a aquarium then theme park. There are a few rides but most of SeaWorld is about the animals not the rides.
SeaWorld is most famous for its aquatic wildlife but they have more then just big fish. In fact the most famous big fish in the park is not a fish but a mammal. The most famous of all animals in the park is Shamu which you can see daily in the Shamu stadium. If you have kids you may want to sit in the front few rows known as the splash zones. However if you have electronic equipment you will want to stay out of the splash zone because the salt water ruins electronics. There are multiple shows each day and they are popular but the stadium seats lots of people. If you were wondering Shamu is actually an Orca killer whale and only the stage name of the whales that perform in fact the original Shamu is gone and all the whales have there own names.
For those that love penguins which is everyone there is a penguin encounter which is one of only two places that Emperor penguins can be seen in captivity and the only place they are breed. Over 8 species of penguins call the Penguin Experience home. The Penguin Encounter is one of the best things to see in the park as it is one of the only places to see penguins.
Discovery Cover lets you not only pet the dolphins but you can also feed them. The truth is that unless you have food you will probably not get the dolphins to come to you to pet them. You also will have to buy food to feed the fish and some kids may be scared of feeding them or not want to touch the fish. Also your hands get smelly from the dolphins. You should be careful because dolphin feeding time is also seagull feeding time so watch your dolphin food.
The Shark Encounter is another great experience where you can see all kinds of sharks. Boys will really love the Shark Encounter. The park also has whales, walruses, and polar bears. All of these animals are very big. The whales, walruses, and polar bears can all be seen togther by taking one of the only rides at the park a simulator ride Wild Arctic or skipping the ride and heading straight to the animals.
