Derrion: The holidays are finally over, which means we will have so many updates for you all in the coming weeks. Over the holidays, we had such an amazing time visiting Sea World San Diego on Christmas Day. This was a very impromptu trip and even though it had been raining the entire day we managed to have a blast.
– In the past, many of our images have been posted, featured, and shared on forums, social media platforms and websites around the web. We work hard to provide the coverage that we do, and we encourage our audience to share our content and use our images, BUT ONLY IF proper credit is given to thecoasterkings.com. Thank you! –
The orcas are beautiful and extremely intelligent. The encounter showcases their growth and development, migrating characteristics, and teaches the audience how they hunt prey. They are the top predators in the ocean.
SeaWorld continues to emphasize their rescue brand by saving thousands of species each year. This includes the eels seen below and countless other sea animals. It is clear that their brand over time is changing for the better.
These eels are not the only thrilling thing in the park. Electric Eel which opened this past year was truly an amazing experience. This Premier Skyrocket was just what the park needed to increase its thrill lineup. The comfort collars however were the biggest downfall to the ride and were very difficult for someone my size (6’1’ and above ) to get in and out of the seat.
This attraction is currently being re-tracked and re-painted. I am excited to come back to the park and visit this spring to see all of the new changes. There were only two major attractions open this visit and the park felt a bit empty.
This encounter by far was extremely immersive. Hot off the press, in 2020 SeaWorld will be renovating this Shark Encounter and adding a brand new dive machine, Mako, among many other additions to this park in the next few years. More information can be found here !
On a merrier note, the classic tale of Rudolph was on the big screen for guest to experience. It was truly magnificent because the movie experience showcased the classic tale with all new lighting, wind, and snow effects.
SeaWorld used to make me nervous visiting their marine encounters because I always felt that the animals were not always cared for. All of the encounters today showcased active healthy animals. The mantas were swimming freely and it was cool to visit them.
The “O Wondrous Night” Live nativity show by far is one of the best shows I have ever experienced at an amusement park. SeaWorld truly has a gem, and although the performances foundation was in religion it was perfectly woven to warm anyones heart on Christmas.
We truly are going to miss the holiday season in many theme parks. We will definitely be back for more SeaWorld San Diego updates. I’m very excited to see the new changes coming to the park as they have a bright future on the horizon.
