Sea world in San Antonio, TX is one of the attractions we can’t miss. This place opens by playing national anthem. Though expensive comparitively other attractions, this place is an internationally known place for shows with whales, sea lions, dolphins and birds. Entry fee is 59.99USD and parking is 15.00USD. All you can eat food coupon is 29.99USD.

I have visited this place for a day and have attended all the shows. Beluga whale show, Azul show, Sea lions show , Shark feeding, Dolphin show and feeding, Penguins, Shamu the killer whale are special attractions in this place.

The Joker in Azul show, Whale taking push ups and the story board of Sea Lion show are very good. I have thouroughly enjoyed the 4D show of Sesame street friends.

Killer whale shamu can splah water upto min distance of 15 stands.

Childhood Memories May 02, 2008
I went to Seaworld as a child, and can still remember watching the animals through their tanks and cages for hours. Sitting in the first 6 row and getting splashed by SHAMU!

This is a wonderful place to really get some very informative opportunities of various species throughout not only the local wildlife scene, but internationally. I had the great opportunity to visit this particular location as a child, and it was well worth the visit. I hope the have the opportunity to do so again as a kid at heart.

San Antonio is a tremendous place to really gather a large taste of Texas tourism!

SeaWorld San Antonio (formerly SeaWorld of Texas) was developed by Harcourt, Brace and Jovanovich (now Harcourt Trade Publishers) and opened in 1988. The park was built for $170 million and welcomed 3.3 million visitors in its first 12 months of operation, placing it among the top 10 attractions in Texas. At the time the park opened, it was billed as the largest educational, marine-life theme park in the world.

In 1989, Harcourt, Brace, and Jovanovich (heavy in debt and fighting a hostile takeover) sold its SeaWorld and Boardwalk and Baseball theme parks to Anheuser-Busch, Inc. Plans to build a Boardwalk and Baseball park adjacent to SeaWorld of Texas were immediately abandoned.

On February 2, 1993, Baby Shamu "Kalina" (the first Orca calf born in captivity - born on September 26, 1985, at SeaWorld Orlando) gave birth to the first second-generation killer whale calf, "Keet," or commonly Grandbaby Shamu.

Under Anheuser-Busch's watch, SeaWorld San Antonio closed less popular attractions such as the Texas Walk, the U.S. Map Plaza, and the Circle of Flags and added its popular Clydsedales to the park. The educational focus of the parks were de-emphasised, and expansion focused on the addition of thrill rides and a water park. In 1993 the park opened its Lost Lagoon water park, and in 1997 the park debuted its first roller coaster, The Great White, along with Rio Loco, a water rapids ride.

Have you heard that the biggest JW Marriott Resort is going to open in San Antonio in March 2010?

It will feature 1,002 rooms, fine dining, a great spa and fitness center, two PGA TOUR TPC golf courses designed by legendary Pete Dye and Greg Norman, a multi-million dollar water park designed by the Sea World team!!

It’s located north of San Antonio (20 min. from the airport) and provides easy access to all the attractions in the Hill Country region – historic towns, musical legends, award-winning vineyards and culture from the Spanish tradition to the deep German heritage of the settlers.

See it as it comes together at

I have fond memories of SeaWorld when I visited San Antonio in 1993. I'm sure the city has changed drastically in 15 years!!!
