    Visited SeaWorld San Diego

    August 19, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Visited SeaWorld in San Diego. It is a crowd Place but it was defiantly OK since it is a big area. Seeing an Orca in real is a great experience. For sure it wod be better to see them in Nature but we really had the option that they know what they are doing and that the animals are really doing well.

    Wir haben SeaWorld in San Diego besucht. Es ist eine Menge los aber es verteilt sich wirklich gut in dem Park da es ein RIESEN Areal ist. Einen Orc in Echt zu sehen war eine tolle Erfahrung. Natuerlich besser in der Natur aber wir sind wirklich der Meinung dass es den Tieren gut geht.

    Sea World

    July 27, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Heute steht nochmals ein Parkbesuch an. Das SeaWorld befindet sich nur 10 Min. vom Hotel entfernt.

    Dieser Park ist ein Mix zwischen Wasserwelt und Vergnügungspark. Wo nun der Fokus wirklich liegt, wird uns nicht ganz klar.

    Unser Fokus liegt dafür klar bei den Shows, für die der Park berühmt ist.
    Die Eiswelt mit den Pinguinen und den Beluga Walfischen ist toll gemacht.

    Der Parkt übertrifft sich mit Eigenlob über die Rettung und Erhaltung der Meereswelt. So kosten einige Attraktionen beim Anstehen nochmals extra, dessen Geld dann gespendet werden soll. Bei dem teuren Eintrittspreis eigentlich eine Frechheit.

    Die Wildwasserbahn ist abenteuerlicher als sie von aussen her gesehen scheint. Wir werden ziemlich Nass. Luisa hat das Verlangen, die neu eröffnete Achterbahn zu besuchen. Die Warteschlange ist jedoch lang und Pascal will zu Luisas Enttäuschung nicht so recht auf die Bahn.

    Gegen 16h kommt der schon bekannte düstere Nebel auf und es wird empfindlich frisch. So bleiben wir heute nicht bis zum bitteren Ende und lassen die abendlich Lichtshow aus.

    Sea World San Diego

    June 23, 2008 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    After the zoo today another theme park San Diego is famous for: Sea World.

    Well honestly we came all the way here to see Shamu, the rest of the attractions looked quite similar to what you get at Sea World in Gold Coast or so we thought

    We got lost again with GPS and ended up getting a bit late, well just on time to rush to the Shamu show. the "Shamu stadium" was quite big and crowded, the sun was intense and there wasn't a roof to protect us so I bought a hat with the zoo logo, good souvenir.

    A few minutes later and the show starts, amazing to see this big sea mammals in action, jumping, swimming around and posing for photos. I had read that it was best to seat at the top unless you really wanted to get soaked (well it would have been ok with the heat) and the comments were indeed true, as part of the show Shamu splashed water over the crowd with its tale.....it was a really good show.

    As one usually does on a first visit to a theme park like this our visit was governed by show times so after Shamu show we rushed to the dolphin show. The show was quite entertaining with a member of the crew acting as a dedicated parent that fooled himself many times, falling onto the water eventually and rescued by the dolphins. The dolphins also splashed water over the crowd.

    Next we went to the Pets stadium to see doogies (a bit similar to the one at Universal Studios) and then we skipped other shows and went to Wild Arctic to see Beluga Whales, Polar Bears and Walrus. The display was so good that we really felt transported to an arctic world. I did really liked the whales.

    Time to eat our pre-packed sandwich and to have fun looking at the misery in others falling rapidly down the Journey to Atlantis drop. I just wished Ximena were older so we can ride it too.

    Anyway we continued to the Penguin encounter, the Shark encounter and Manatee rescue. We needed a rest so we took Ximena to the huge Sesame street play ground (she could have easily spent all day here)

    We finished our visit with teh Forbidden reef, the flamingos and finally the cirque de la mer show, some sort of cirque du soleil but next to the ocean which gave it particular scenery and on our way out more souvenirs.

    Legoland California

    June 24, 2008 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    The last day allocated to Ximena, this time we went to Legoland. The drive from Chula Vista to Carlsbad was close to 50 minutes and Legoland wasn't that far from the motorway.

    A big car park awaited us and then we get in line to get the tickets, at least these places in San Diego aren't as crowded as Disneyland or Universal Studios.

    Once in there the first place we explored was Miniland USA and no better way to start than the Coast cruise, which is basically a boat that took us around the lake for a close encounter to the replica of some of the most iconic landmarks on earth (Sydney's opera house, Taj Mahal, Mount Rushmore etc), After the boat we explore the miniland on foot. The constructions are superb and representing many American's cities (New York, LA, San Francisco, Las Vegas etc), the attention to detail is simply amazing.

    Time to have some fun so we went to the Land of Adventure where Ximena jumped on the Waver Racers and the Bionicle Blaster. We passed the Lego Coaster (even though it looked like good fun) and went to the next area where there were some rides for little kids, there Ximena went on the planes and the beetle bounce.

    Castle Hill had rides for older kids so we mostly spent the time observing them, the Knight's tournament would certainly leave you dizzy with so many twisting and turning. Yovanna rode the Dragon while Ximena was doing The Royal Joust, some sort of medieval horse riding.

    After Castle Hill we arrived to Pirate shores. Ximena wasn't sure about the Splash battle but we eventually rode it 3 times, it was good fun to go around getting completely soaked and getting others soaked on the way. Ximena and Yovanna then jumped on the Captain's cranky challenge.

    We then went to Fun Town were we entered a fire fighters competition, of course we lost it because the other teams had older kids but it was quite funny and energetic.

    Too much to see on one single day so we had to keep moving, Ximena had a driver license at the Volvo driving school and then we went to Explore Village to ride Safari Trek, the lego animals were incredible.

    Before leaving we explored Imagination zone were there were some amazing constructions like Einstein face, Bob the Builder, Batman among others
