As a first time visitor to sea world I was unsure whether to go to the park. I watched blackfish and it made a compelling argument not to attend, that being said as an adrenaline junky I wanted to ride the rollercoasters. I didn't enjoy my day there for 2 different reasons. The animal exhibits, I found it hard to justify why it's necessary to make these animals perform for our entertainment - it's not educational and I felt uncomfortable watching the shows. That being said having spent the previous week at Disney and universal, the guest experience at sea world was lacking, paying for lockers, closed attractions and rude staff just seemed to make for a bad day. It felt like the staff didn't care about the experience of me as a guest - this is what makes you come back to a park, maybe I'm expecting to much but the people at the other parks where friendly and helpful and made every effort to ensure I was having a good time.
