Sea World San Antonio compared to San Diego?

My sister and I grew up in LA and am familiar with the Sea World in San Diego. We're considering the one in San Antonio during a visit.

Any significant differences? Or should we spend our time elsewhere. We'll have her 10-year-old daughter with us.

Thanks in advance for your input!

I've haven't been to the one in San Diego but the one in SA is very nice.

Here is the website to check it out to see if you see something that interest you to visit there. The water park is a lot of fun + you could visit & compare for yourself.

SA location of Sea World is the largest in terms of acreage. I think it is really up to you. My personal opinion iis f you have experience with one why not focus on something else..for ex. Natural Bridge Caverns near SA

...

if your daughter hasn't been or was too young beforehand then yes, it would be a good idea

+1 for T-Hombre's recommendations.

When we visited San Diego, we focused on other things (like the beaches) and passed on Sea World.

watch the academy award-winning documentary 'the cove' or 'a fall from freedom' and consider not visiting parks that hold whales and dolphins in small spaces

I agree with above posters..If I had to choose though San Diego wins..In SD it is located near downtown so you have a lot of other things to do nearby..Old Town,Gaslamp,Mission Bay,PB,Casino,La Jolla,Torrey Pines,and miles of 101 beach views..Besides that the weather is fantastic...There is no comparison....

Oldieguy I think you will like it. When you do you should do a TR comparison good or bad for others to know if it worth it & that would be good so others would know. We've done the one in Florida & like the TX one better, We usually do this for comparison so we'll know.
