SeaWorld is the only place where real and amazing live. Through every experience at these aquatic theme parks, guests are encouraged to connect with the sea. As a result, exciting rides, amazing shows and up-close encounters are made that much more captivating. Not only do you connect with the wonders of the ocean, you care about them.
To highlight SeaWorld’s commitment to animals all over the world, as well as their guests, Reserve Direct invited two families to visit the park as part of our SeaWorld: One Park, Two Ways campaign. Discover all the fun and educational experiences they had as they explore the real, amazing aspects of SeaWorld Orlando and SeaWorld San Diego.
We sent Krystal, from Sweet Sunny Days, to experience SeaWorld Orlando. Additionally, Shelby from OC Mom Blog, toured SeaWorld San Diego. During their time at the park, we invited each blogger to exclusive, behind-the-scenes activities at the park. Don’t worry—you can have this kind of access too. They’re all part of SeaWorld’s efforts to educate visitors on their conservation efforts. Interactive and engaging, they add the real to any day at SeaWorld. And yes, it’s pretty amazing!
