I'd never been to Sea World before so this was an adventure. We saw 90% of the exhibits before we left for the night. We stopped at California Pizza Kitchen across from the San Diego Temple for dinner and I had the best salad I've ever tasted.
The penguin exhibit was a lot smaller than I expected but they were still cute.
The Shamu show was great but a little slow. And when they say SOAK ZONE, they mean soak, not splash. And they are serious.
I loved the macaws in the Pet show.
And the first whales we saw were the beluga whales. They were so pretty. One was even feeding a baby.
The dolphin show the best of the shows as far as what the animals could do.
And the kids had a great time with the manta rays.
There weren't any this big in there but we had a great time petting them. They are super soft and smooth.
We enjoyed The Polar Express 4-D and it was cool because it was our first 4-D experience. By the time we got done with all of the parks I was tired of getting sprayed in the face.
We purchased a drink when we got there and then refills were 99 cents. I had a hard time convincing my family that root beer outside of Utah has caffeine in it. It was mostly a sprite day.
This was the Shamu Christmas show. The live choir and sign language choir was great.
And we loved all the Christmas decor.
