Park History

SeaWorld San Antonio was the most recent of the three SeaWorld parks that are still operating to open, in 1988. Just a year after its debut, it was sold to the Anheuser-Busch brewery company, which also owned the Busch Gardens parks. It is the largest park in the chain, and was the first to start installing major roller coasters, with The Great White in 1997. The new emphasis on thrill rides continued with the additions of Steel Eel (1999) and Journey to Atlantis (2007), and the park was sold once again to the Blackstone Group in 2009. Aquatica, the water park opened on May 19, 2012 and is adjacent to SeaWorld San Antonio.
