Attraction Action: 10 SeaWorld Rides Deliver Thrills and Chills

A few things are synonymous with San Diego. While our perfect weather and gorgeous beaches are prevalent in any conversation about San Diego, there are several attractions that are also inevitably mentioned when speaking of America’s Finest City. SeaWorld San Diego is one such attraction, as iconic as the destination itself.

Popular with adults and kids alike, I sheepishly admit that I didn’t set foot in SeaWorld until I had a child. Now we are season pass holders and frequent the park, even if it’s for an hour to catch the exhilarating One Ocean show featuring Shamu, or the crowd pleasing Pets Rule show.

Some features of SeaWorld that we haven’t fully experienced yet are the roller coasters. With the height requirement of 42 inches, our daughter (turning five this month) has been greatly motivated to eat her vegetables so that she can grow quickly, and experience the Journey to Atlantis ride. Each time we visit the park, we stand by to watch the great splash created by the ride’s 60-foot plunge. With each drop we witness, she squeals with excitement as her eyes fill with determination to grow taller so she can experience the thrill for herself.

She has one more inch to go, and will probably be tall enough by early summer just in time as the newest of SeaWorld’s ride, Manta opening in May.

SeaWorld San Diego offers a range of rides, from the thrilling and exhilarating roller coasters, to rides that are perfect for chilling, and a few that are for designed especially for the ‘lil ones. Here is a list of all the current and upcoming thrills and chills you can experience.

Heart-Pounding Thrill Rides

Height Requirement for these rides are 42″ (107 cm) or taller. Guests between 42″ and 48″ tall must be accompanied by a supervising companion (14 years of age or older) sitting beside them.

1.  MANTA – Opens May 2012


Manta is SeaWorld’s first multi-media double-launch coaster that delivers thrills you can only experience at SeaWorld San Diego. This highly anticipated new coaster takes you on an immersive journey through the sky and sea, as seen through the eyes of the Manta ray. As you climb aboard, the ride will have you gliding, spinning and soaring at top speeds in a way that only SeaWorld can deliver.

2.  Journey to Atlantis


Be transported to a lost civilization on Journey To Atlantis. The ride begins with a 60-foot plunge into water, and ends with face-to-face sea animal encounters. Lines are shorter early in the morning, and around Shamu and Blue Horizon show times.

3.  Shipwreck Rapids


Be cast away on this tube-style raft ride as you experience the thrill of winding down a rapid river. Whirls, swirls, splashes and crashes await as you plunge through a waterfall into an underground cavern. Onlookers can drench castaways on the rafts with six water cannons that are placed on the main pathway between the ride’s entrance and the Cirque de la Mer stadium.

4.  Wild Arctic Ride


This ride combines the mesmerizing features of a flight simulator with a thrilling adventure aboard a jet-helicopter. Soar through the Arctic Circle as you take in breathtaking views of perilous, icy landscapes. Put yourself in your pilot’s hands as he maneuvers treacherous frozen peaks and valleys en route to Base Station Wild Arctic.

5.  Riptide Rescue


Experience your own sea turtle rescue mission as you climb aboard the yellow rafts of Riptide Rescue. But hold on—like SeaWorld’s actual rescues, it can be a wild ride! This ride requires guest to be 50″ tall to ride independently. Guest between 45” and 50” tall must be accompanied by a Supervising Companion (14 years of age or older) sitting beside them.

Chillax and Take in the View

6.  SkyTower


Take a ride high above SeaWorld for spectacular 360 degree views of the surrounding areas of Mission Bay and beyond. Sit back and enjoy a leisurely ride up the tower as the platform spins at a slow and steady pace, revealing spectacular views that stretch out to  Pacific Ocean and the gorgeous downtown San Diego. With clear skies, you can see up to a hundred miles in every direction.

7.  Bayside Skyride


This gentle two-way gondola ride takes you on a relaxing six minute journey as you float above the tranquil waters of Mission Bay. Catch the ride around sunset for spectacular views of the Bay and the Pacific.

Fun Rides for the ‘Lil Ones

For toddlers and younger kids, there are still some joyful rides at the Sesame Street Bay of Play, located in the heart of SeaWorld.

8.  Elmo’s Flying Fish


Kids love this up and down ride that takes them across an imaginary ocean. With fish-shaped carriages that looks like adorable Elmo, younger kids will enjoy watching as much as riding in them.

9.  Abby’s Sea Star Spin


For some whirling and twirling fun, enjoy this classic spinning teacup ride. How much you spin is up to you, as you control with the wheel at the center of your starfish-inspired riding cup.

10.  Oscar’s Rocking Eel


Oscar the Grouch might be grumpy, but his eel pal is one slippery character! Hang on as he spins and slithers you along on a side-to-side slide of an adventure.

Want to take a ride for yourself? We are giving away four (4) one day admission passes to SeaWorld San Diego, good through 6/30/2012. Leave a comment on this blog post by 10:00 am P.S.T. on Thursday March 8, 2012 for a chance to win.

About Aki

After living in 8 cities in 4 countries, I adopted San Diego as my home town 10 years ago. Everything I love is here - the Pacific Ocean as my back yard, museums and galleries exhibiting world-class art, endless dining options, the coolest attractions, friendly people, a dynamic business community… the list goes on. And after a decade of living here, there is still so much more to see!

What would you do on your ideal San Diego Day?

As a resident of coastal North County, my perfect San Diego Day always starts with a good surf session. Packing up the family, we’ll head to our favorite beach in Cardiff-by-the-Sea. After some fun in the sun and surf, we’ll head to Swami’s Café in Encinitas for their famous Acai bowl, then hit the road down south to any of the great San Diego attractions. Maybe a day at the Zoo, or check out some museums in Balboa Park? As an art lover and former gallerist, I love checking out new exhibitions at local galleries in La Jolla or Little Italy.

In the evening (if we can get a sitter), we love seeing live music at any of the great music venues in town. A concert at Spreckels Theater, a show at the Casbah, or an outing to the Belly Up in Solana Beach is always a treat. For dinner, we'll gather up some friends and head out to Stone Brewery Bistro & Gardens, or Cucina Urbana in Bankers Hill. What's the best way to cap off a perfect day in San Diego? With perfectly crafted cocktails at Starlite, Craft+Commerce, or Noble Experiment.

What is your favorite San Diego outdoor activity?

Surfing & hiking. I also love yoga, which you can enjoy outdoors in San Diego. And shopping too, it’s officially an outdoor sport here.

Do you prefer burgers and beer or linguine and red wine?

That’s an apples and oranges question... On most days, I’m a linguine and red wine kinda gal. But I’ll go for a good Kobe burger and wash it down with a Hefeweizen.

Latest music purchases for my iPod player are…

Archade Fire, Bon Iver and The xx.

  1. I’m way too terrified of adrenaline fueled rides, but I got to say the Journey to Atlantis, or any of the water types listed in here looks pretty fun. It would be quite a fun ride to share with my family. They let you store your extra clothes in a locker right?
     

  2. My husband and I celebrated our 25th anniversary last June and are just now getting away to celebrate.  We will be in San Diego in just two weeks and this would be a really fun “date” for us.  We live in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and California is out favorite vacation spot.

  3. I just saw this post, awwww, missed the deadline, but will comment anyway, Sea World is my ultimate Pooh-Like Thinkin Spot, I go if I am stressed, I go when I need some “ME” time or when I want to see others having fun.  I go to see the animals, LOVE the Pets Rule Show the most, those cats, dogs, birds, etc are so cute. I spend each Christmas Day there because my family is 2600 miles away and being with the animals helps me have a wonderful Christmas, I am keeping the tradition. I have seen every Shamu show since 2004 when I moved to SD.  I think I like the Shamu Rocks the best, Believe comes in second.  Micci/SoCal Media Surfer

  4. I grew up in San Diego and moved to Mississippi due to the military. We are coming back to visit in July and would love to go to, what looks like, a whole new Sea World!!!!

  5. I have a 2 year old that loves Elmo and a 6 year old brother my mom is disabled and I’m having back surgery in 2 weeks! I’m only 23 year old. How amazing would it be if after my back surgery I could take the kids for. A day of fun and get to do everything with them. I’ve never been able to take the kids to do fun things like sea world because of my back issues and disability doesn’t pay much! I can’t believe how sea world has changed its been about 10 years since I’ve been they! But it so expensive these days!!!

  58. I understand why rides are good business, but it always feels like a further betrayal of what Sea World is supposed to be, an aquatic zoo and something for people to do while they make their way from beer cart to beer cart.

  59. This would be a great ….another reason to visit my son & daughter-in-law in sunny California….HOOYAH…..

  60. I haven’t been to Sea World in forever but it’s great! Can’t wait to check out all that they have again someday soon! 🙂

  65. My children have not been to Sea World yet. We live in Vegas but I grew up in SD. We have a family of 4 so winning tickets would be perfect! I love Sea World.

  66. Haven’t been to SeaWorld since I was a kid and it’s Not San Diego Without SeaWorld. I would love to be able to go again!!!

  67. Being a single mom is hard…..I’ve been trying to save enough money to take the kids to see all the amazing sea life I enjoyed as a child.

  68. I’ve lived in San Diego my whole life, and for as long as I can remember, SeaWorld has been undoubtedly one of my favorite attractions. It has it all. From the rides to the underwater adventures, it grabs countless visitors every day. With this new ride too, I think it will skyrocket the attraction by so much more. Everyone I’ve ever known to come visit SD has named SeaWorld as at least in their top 3 places to go. It’s a great places to take all your friends, but most importantly, it’s an amazing place which accompanies the entire family.

  69. Anyone remember when Sesame Street Bay of Play was Captain Kidd’s World??!!  Man, that was my favorite place to go as a kid!  We took our kids a few years ago and they loved it!  Can’t wait to get back!

  70. This would be awesome… My kids would love and have not been on these Sea world rides. Love San Diego and we love Sea World!!!

  71. Sleepless in Seattle Family would Love to see some SUN and SEALIFE attractions at SEAWORLD. Never been to San Diego, would Love the Opportunity to go.  Thanks!

  72. I would do anything for these tickets…….anything….go ahead call me on it…….ok ok anything legal……….

  73. It would be a wonderful way to celebrate my upcoming 50th Birthday because you are never too old to enjoy SeaWorld!

  74. Grew up in San Diego ..came back and spent my honeymoon at sea world/SD zoo 😉 I would love to show my stepsons this amazing place!! Being from phoenix az, they have never seen anything like it!

  75. I have been taking my kids and daycare kids to sea world for the last ten years, each time we go it is like the first time with new expierecnces and new things to sea and explore! It IS my Disneyland 🙂

  76. Am so so looking forward to going to Sea World this summer.  Even though my children are all grown, and I won’t have my grandchildren with me, my 23 year old son has promised to go with me.  One of my favorite places.

  77. I host and tour exchange students from many countries and their top preference for sight seeing is San Diego and Sea World.  I have always been so busy making sure they have a great time there that I have never really had the chance to take a ride for myself.  Would love to just chillax and take in the newest rides.

  78. SWA world is the best!!! that is mone and my daughters favorite place to spend the day together. I think it’s time for a mother daughter day at sea world

  79. Sea world is awesome! Changing the way people love the ocean and all it’s creatures! It’s a beautiful world under the sea and I’m glad they make it possible for children and adults alike to see it! Specially sea turtles!!!!! 🙂

  84. I am missing Sunny San Diego and Sea World! That is where a lot of my childhood memories happened and I need to take my own children there to experience it!

  85. I am so looking forward to taking my kids on the new ride, Manta, but I hope they will still have the pearl divers when it all opens, my kids love watching that

  86. Love Sea world I ask my kids where do you want to go Dineyland they all say no I want to go to Sea world they would live there if they could.

  87. Excited to see the new MANTA ride.  My daughter loves Elmo’s Flying Fish.  Hope to take the family for a visit soon…

  97. I love SeaWorld and I haven’t been in years! San Diego is a beautiful area and getting wet on rides on a hot Southern California day is a fantastic way to cool off. The sea life will always be the main attraction for me though. The manatees are my favorite!

  98. I’ve never been to SeaWorld! My family and I are totally excited to be going for the first time this summer!

  99. My sister and her kids are coming to San Diego for their first visit… It would be so nice to take them to Sea World for free!!
