Sea World is a must see when you are in San Diego. This is not like some of the amusement parks where you really won't be too happy as an adult. This is for the whole family. They have amazing shows (i.e. dolphins or killer whale - Shamu). Sea World is beautiful and you will be amazed!

Well, I think $12 for parking is an affordable price if it's for the whole day.. especially if you go to visit Sea World with the whole family.
Anyhow thanks for the useful info.
I also wanted to ask what Shamu is but meanwhile I did a search... here's the result:

hmm, impressing... :PReply
