What things to pay attention to at the San Antonio SeaWorld
One of the main things to pay attention to while at San Antonio SeaWorld would be the number of different types of shows that are going on throughout the day. There are plenty of Shamu Shows, Dolphin Shows, Penguin Shows, and more that everyone in the family can enjoy! To be able to see these magnificent animals up close and in person is beyond spectacular. You can not watch one of these shows and not feel an overwhelming range of emotions. And if you really want to appreciate their beauty you can go to feed the dolphins near the front of the park. It’s so amazing to see them up close and have an opportunity to touch and interact with them first hand. You can’t experience that and walk away unchanged with different perspective on the beauty our planet has to offer!! If you happen to have younger kids with you who may not be tall enough for some of the bigger rides, don’t worry! There’s also a Sesame Street Bay of Play area where they can still have lots of fun! And last but not least, don’t forget to catch one of the spectacular fireworks displays at nightfall before heading home. The other super amazing thing is that throughout the year SeaWorld puts on a bunch of themed experiences for the public to enjoy. They do a super fun Halloween experience, Christmas Holiday themed events and more! Don’t miss out, their annual passes are very much worth the money, and last I checked some version of the annual pass comes with free upgraded parking!!
Whether you’re looking for a fun-filled day of thrills or just want to take in some incredible animal performances, a trip to SeaWorld San Antonio is sure to please everyone in your group! Just be sure to arrive early so you can fit everything in, and don’t forget to stay for the fireworks show at nightfall!
