500 SeaWorld Drive
San Diego, CA
Sea World is home to San Diego's unofficial mascot, Shamu the killer whale. Arena shows featuring Shamu, dolphins, and sea lions happen every day. The Shark House has a walk-though glass tube, allowing visitors to get uncomfortably close to these animals. There is also an Antarctic habitat with emperor penguins sliding and swimming about.
In addition to the marine park, Sea World offers rides and attractions. Take a gondola ride on the Bayside Skyride, a thrilling streak on the Journey to Atlantis rollercoaster, or get wet on the Shipwreck Rapids raft ride.
