And launching May 26–Manta–an amazing immersive, new mega attraction that takes you deep into the world of rays.

Comments about Smart Destinations SeaWorld San Diego - General Admission:

Love this attraction! I think it's good for all ages. It seems like it would be for kids, but it's actually fun for adults too. Great shows - which are the hlghlight, but there is also a sky tram with amazing views, some fun rides, and a great way to get some sun and do something different for the day. Fireworks show at night 9pm daily in summer. Get the 3 or 5 day Go San Diego Card so you can visit more than once... it's worth it!
