We went to Sea World in San Antonio, Texas last fall. Our entire family had such a blast that we ended up purchasing season tickets, so that we could go back again!
We went during Halloween therefore the entire parked was decked out in a Halloween theme. There were several rides for the kids to ride and games for the kids to play. Sea World has animals throughout the park such as Flamingos. Also there are different shoes with different animals throughout the park.
There were several big kid/adult rides such as roller coasters, but we did not get to ride on those. I believe this particular park as a water park, but was not open when we were there.
There is a place in the park where you can actually feed the dolphin's. It was a great experience and the kids love it.
So if you are looking for a fun place to go and see animals, watch shows and ride some rides...check out Sea World. The food is not bad either!
