AAA Editor Notes
SeaWorld San Antonio, 10500 SeaWorld Dr., is a marine life adventure park offering shows, up-close animal encounters, attractions and rides. The high-energy show One Ocean blends orca behaviors with music and messages of education and conservation. The Ocean Discovery: Dolphins & Beluga Whales show is an enlightening experience featuring graceful beluga whales and athletic Pacific white-sided dolphins, while the Sea Lion High show features the comical sea lion duo, Clyde and Seamore.

The three-acre Sesame Street Bay of Play offers family rides and the chance to meet and be photographed with Sesame Street characters. Explorer's Reef brings you face-to-face with tropical fish, sharks and eels. There's also an opportunity for dolphin, beluga and sea lion interactive swims; and a penguin habitat with more than 200 birds. Guests can also enjoy Turtle Reef, a habitat for endangered sea turtles.

Journey to Atlantis combines the thrill of a coaster with the plunge of a water ride. Among the other rides are the Steel Eel coaster; Rio Loco, a river rapids ride; and The Great White, on which riders go heels-over-head five times. Wave Breaker: The Rescue Coaster is a jet-ski-style coaster combining the thrill of a roller coaster with the adrenaline rush of a marine animal rescue mission.

Holiday-themed events include SeaWorld's Howl-O-Scream and family-friendly Spooktacular held in October and SeaWorld's Christmas Celebration, which runs from mid-November to early January.
