Visit SeaWorld San Diego
Set on the expansive grounds of Mission Bay Park along the shore of the Mission Bay, San Diego, SeaWorld San Diego has been a favorite family destination for decades. The theme park first opened on March 21, 1964, displaying various shows surrounding sea lions and dolphins. The park may have had humble beginnings but being one of the first of its oceanarium parks, it quickly became popular in California and grew exponentially in the next few years.
Today it has three different locations – one in Texas, one in Orlando, and the original San Diego location – and welcomes an astounding estimate of 11 million visitors annually.
The park has since morphed from its simple aquatic-themed shows surrounding fascinating marine life and has delved into the world of amusement with the addition of rollercoasters, restaurants, and attractions. SeaWorld San Diego has 16 different rollercoasters for guests to enjoy, ranging from fast-paced thrillers to charming children's rides. Going along with the theme of the park, most rides are inspired by the Ocean’s wonderful aquatic life – some of which you can see in the theme park.
Come visit with your SeaWorld tickets from FunEx! We have the lowest priced SeaWorld San Diego tickets in the market. That’s a guarantee!
All New Dive Coaster: Emperor
The newly opened Emperor ride has been garnering a lot of attention for being the fastest, tallest, and longest dive rollercoaster in California.
The Emperor ride is inspired by the largest type of Penguin and was forged to mimic the defying movements of Penguins underwater. Climbing over 153 feet into the air before being suspended at a 45-degree angle and then shot down a thrilling track, the Emperor is a thrill-seekers haven. It offers guests a glimpse into what they can expect from SeaWorld rollercoasters. Ride this with your SeaWorld tickets!
As much as the rollercoasters, restaurants, and games are fun, the real attraction to SeaWorld is the breathtaking shows held every day displaying incredible feats of aquatic animals. The park's Orca show is iconic and has become so popular that it's become synonymous with the park itself. The performances are the gems of the parks, and you should plan your day around the shows rather than the other way around. These shows are included in your SeaWorld tickets!
The park's 100-acre grounds demand a full day of exploration in order to be truly appreciated. From world-class shows to educational exhibits to thrilling rollercoasters, there is an abundance of things to enjoy while visiting SeaWorld San Diego. If you want to experience everything SeaWorld San Diego has to offer and more at a fraction of the cost, then buy your SeaWorld San Diego tickets through Funex, where we offer some of the lowest pricing in the industry.

History of SeaWorld San Diego
SeaWorld San Diego was first introduced to the public on March 21, 1964. Founded by George Millay, Milt Shedd, Ken Norris, and David Demott, the park was created instead of the original underwater restaurant the four men had intended to build. When the four men realized the impossibility of creating an underwater restaurant with live marine shows, they moved their focus to an ocean-themed amusement park – one of the first of its kind.
They chose the newly developed Mission Bay Park as their setting and got to work creating what is now a household name theme park. When the park first opened, there were only a few exhibits centering around dolphins and sea lions rather than the iconic Killer Whale, which the park would eventually become synonymous with.
At roughly the same time, a new television program would air that centered around dolphins that would become a smash hit and has been linked to the theme park, which quickly became a brilliant success. In the first year of being open, the theme park welcomed a remarkable 400,000 guests, a number that would grow exponentially as the years went on.
The original park housed several sea lions, dolphins, and seawater aquariums full to the brim with thousands of fascinating fish species. Although humble in its beginnings, these attractions were enough for the park to garner enough attention and began to grow in earnest in 1968 after going public. Once its stock became public, it started to expand in two ways; the San Diego Park grew in acreage, and SeaWorld began to open up new parks in different locations across the U.S.
The second location for SeaWorld to open its zoological park was in Aurora, Ohio, in 1970, followed by a third park in Orlando, Florida, in 1973, and finally, its fourth and largest park in San Antonia, Texas, in 1988. SeaWorld became a smash hit once it expanded to include a variety of aquatic shows and hands-on sea life exhibits. However, this didn’t stop the Aurora, Ohio, park from eventually shutting down in 2000.
One of the shining moments of the park was the introduction of Shamu, the Killer Whale, in 1965. Shamu entered SeaWorld San Diego in December of 1965 from Seattle’s public aquarium after being captured in Puget Sound, Washington. Shamu was taught tricks and soon began doing performances which became an instant success – thus starting the iconic and widely controversial Orca shows.
Although Shamu would later die in 1971, the killer whale had left her mark. The park continued her legacy with more orcas performing the Shamu Show, which would later be renamed the “Orca Encounter.” This live performance showcases Orcas while educating the audience on the Orca’s habits, hunting behaviors, and exciting facts about these fascinating creatures. The Orca Encounter show is one of the park’s most popular attractions and is world-renowned.
Since then, multiple different ‘encounter’ shows have opened, from dolphins to penguins to even sharks! Then in 1997, the park began to reign in a new era that mixed the beloved marine zoological park with the fun and thrilling amusement parks families have come to adore. The creation and installation of Journey to Atlantis added a whole new facet to the theme park, and after its success, the theme park was quick to bring in more and more rides over the years.
Today, they have their own company that not only operates the three different parks in San Diego, Orlando, and San Antonio but they have also expanded to include different theme parks such as Sesame Place to their roster. SeaWorld San Diego, the original park, is a beloved staple to any California visit. Its world-renowned aquatic shows, rollercoasters, and restaurants guarantee taking a trip to SeaWorld is sure to create new, happy memories for both kids and adults.
