Spanning a 250-acre site, SeaWorld San Antonio offers the chain's usual mix of world-class marine life exhibits and traditional theme park attractions. It boasts two major roller coasters (The Great White and Steel Eel), two water rides (Rio Loco and Journey to Atlantis) and a handful of children's rides in the Sesame Street Bay of Play area. The headline offerings, though, are the live performance - particularly the One Ocean killer whale spectacular and the arty Azul, Lure of the Sea dolphin and beluga whale show.

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.
