We love SeaWorld despite the critics. There is some great animal welfare and rescue work done here that doesn't get enough coverage and it's also educational too in terms of the marine wildlife. However, with all the historic issues being foused on the parks are moving more towards the rides and coasters. Manta is superb and takes you to within a whisker of stomach churning with the g forces. The Kraken (now Unleashed now removed where you had the Virtual Reality element which took it to a weird and wonderful new level). Mako is truly magnificent. High, fast and so smooth. The new water ride is Infinity Falls and you do get very very wet. The only downside here is the management of the queuing - there is none. When you get to the cars it's more or less a free for all and cars leave with sometimes a quarter of the seats unfilled as no one is managing the queue properly - although to be fair this time there were very little queuing at any of the rides, even the new Infinity Falls, as we were there first thing in the morning. Unlike all other parks the parking was "free" and had been included within our tickets so no $25+ fee every visit.
