My family visits SeaWorld® San Diego frequently because of the many learning opportunities there for my daughter. If you’ve visited SeaWorld before you are probably familiar with the soak zone seating at the shows. The clearly marked rows of seats are always full of guests in the SeaWorld soak zone. I’m sharing the truth about the SeaWorld soak zone so you can decide if it’s the appropriate place for you to sit during your next family visit.
We recently visited SeaWorld San Diego and stayed until the park closed for the Summer Nights event. We watched the Shamu’s Celebration Light Up the Night show before viewing fireworks from the stadium. We had excellent seats and I enjoyed looking down on the soak zone. The designated seats are the first rows in many of the stadiums. While more than just whales can splash during shows, attending a show with killer whales and sitting in the soak zone on a warm summer night means you just might end up soaked.
Do you really get soaked in the soak zone?
We’ve had plenty of experiences sitting in the soak zone and leaving shows soaking wet. Keep in mind each show is unique and splashing will vary. Do you sit in the soak zone or prefer to watch from above as guests get a nice cool wave of water to cool them off in the summer?
Our experience learning about killer whales and hearing a whale trainer’s firsthand experience adds to why we fully support the wonderful education endeavors at SeaWorld and inspires each of our visits.
