My first visit to SeaWorld was for work. Finally getting to go for pleasure was a blast. I'm pushing 50 and being able to ride the rides, aside from the big roller coaster, (back injury from playing too hard back in my younger days), I felt invigorated. We went at the end of the school year so the buses full of children on field trips joined us. So great to see their smiles as they waited with anticipation from the 'big splash' caused by the killer whales. Even more fun too hear the screams on the rides and the scenes of kids outside and not sitting in front of the television or playing 'virtual' games based on outdoor activities.
