San Diego’s Sea World is more than just a zoo for marine animals - it's a theme park. Home to a bevy of marine animals from dolphins to Orca’s (more commonly known as killer whales), Sea World also features roller coasters and different marine themed rides and exhibits. Visitors can also soak up the San Diego sun in it's world class water park. Sea World’s most famous attraction is Shamu Stadium, where the Orca whale, Shamu (from a long line of Shamus), performs with trainers and supporting animals, executing stunts to the delight of the crowd. It is truly spectacular to watch the 6 ton mammal jump into the air on command. The shows last for about 20 minutes and are run several times during the day. The show has been famously imitated in shows and movies such as the children’s film, Free Willy. Another big attraction at the park is the Shark Encounter ride - a metal tube in which visitors are lowered into a shark tank. Being underwater with one of the most feared predators in the ocean is an amazing experience.
