Immerse yourself in Ocean Explorer™, a whole new realm at SeaWorld®. Featuring five new rides and three new animal encounters to help you unlock the ocean’s deepest mysteries. Plus, connect with the ocean’s most powerful predator at SeaWorld’s Orca Encounter™. Witness natural behaviors up close while an expansive infinity screen brings their story to life. Don’t miss when the sun goes down and the night comes to life at SeaWorld’s Electric Ocean™ festival. Stay late all summer to enjoy this celebration of illumination.
If you’re a thrill seeker, then soar, dive and twist like a ray on our Manta® coaster or take a plunge on Journey to Atlantis®. You can also go on the ride of your life at Shipwreck Rapids® where you’ll go through watery bends, dodge dripping buckets and escape roaring waterfalls.
Get immersed in the remarkable world of the sea turtle in Turtle Reef, the interactive attraction that gives you a chance to look at nearly 60 sea turtles all at once. Experience their sea-to-shore journey through a motion-controlled video game. Afterwards, climb aboard our ride, Riptide Rescue. It’s an action-packed, adventure that will have an impact on you and the world we share.
One of our park guests’ favorite attraction, the Penguin Encounter®, gives guests a chance to enjoy close-up views of these gregarious birds as they eat, waddle, play and swim. The enclosure is home to more than 250 penguins representing five Antarctic and sub-Antarctic species including Emperor, King, Gentoo, Macaroni and Adélie.
Step beneath the waves and experience our newest attraction, Explorer’s Reef™ — a vibrant undersea realm of larger-than-life coral and amazing creatures in shimmering touch pools invite you into their world. Go “hands-in” to touch a shark, a crab, a gentle ray, or thousands of tiny cleaner fish that will nibble playfully at your fingers. From the moment you arrive, it’s an unforgettable exploratory adventure you’ll just have to sea to believe.
Plus, get ready for another summer at Aquatica SeaWorld’s Waterpark®, now opened, where the South Seas meets Southern California in this whimsical, tropical oasis. Enjoy up-close animal experiences, private cabanas and attractions for the whole family. If you’re looking for the biggest thrill in the park, you’ve found it. Adventure awaits at Aquatica San Diego, located in Chula Vista!
