  • Start your adventure at Explorer's Reef, where you’ll enter the park under a massive wave sculpture and encounter a beautiful, underwater-themed realm of animal attractions, buildings and shade structures.
  • Dive into the world of sea turtles in a way you never thought possible. Get an up-close look at these fascinating creatures, then get even closer by experiencing their journey first-hand.
  • Journey through an amazing underwater viewing tunnel and experience a rare, fascinating, up-close look at predators whose prehistoric ancestors dominated the sea more than a hundred million years before dinosaurs walked the earth.
  • Share in SeaWorld's 55-year knowledge of killer whale behavior and care and hear how scientific research on killer whales at SeaWorld is benefiting wild populations in Orca Encounter, a unique and engaging combination of live and digital presentations.
  • Experience Electric Eel, San Diego’s tallest and fastest roller coaster! Featuring astounding loops, twists and airtime, Electric Eel will propel you to more than 60 miles per hour in seconds, then rocket you skyward nearly 150 feet to an adrenaline-pumping inverted “heartline” roll and a twisting loop!
  • Feel the thrill of Tidal Twister! This dueling roller coaster is an exhilarating experience that demonstrates the power of the ocean. Accelerating to 30 mph, riders will twist and bank as if they are riding the tide along a tight figure-8 track that includes dynamic Zero-G roll at the center section.
  • Visit Aquatica® San Diego, and experience thrilling water rides, exhilarating wave pools, lazy rivers, and 84,000 square feet of sparkling white, sandy beaches. (Aquatica® San Diego available seasonally.)
