EVER WANTED TO GET AN ‘INSIDE LOOK’ AT SEAWORLD?
Park visitors can during all-new, behind-the-scenes access
available free to all guests
SAN DIEGO (Jan. 10, 2018)—With SeaWorld’s all-new Inside Look, every guest will have the chance to go behind the scenes to see what the vets see, go where the rescuers go and learn for themselves how San Diego’s premier marine-life park cares for thousands of animals every day and rescues hundreds of stranded animals every year. SeaWorld Inside Look, which is open to any park visitor and is included with park admission, kicks off Jan. 13 and continues weekends through Jan. 28.
“I love helping our guests connect with some of the ocean’s most incredible animals,” said Kristi Burtis, a SeaWorld orca behaviorist. “With Inside Look, that connection becomes even deeper, as we provide a unique window into our world, the world of marine animals. My hope is that our guests have fun, learn something new and walk away inspired to protect animals in the wild.”
What SeaWorld Inside Look is all about:
SeaWorld has been inspiring millions of guests to love animals for more than 50 years, and is committed to making a difference for wildlife across the globe. Through Inside Look, guests will gain insight into that legacy of animal conservation. Plus, every visit to a SeaWorld park helps support its animal rescue program. Seeing animals at SeaWorld supports saving them in the wild.
This new experience is an opportunity for park visitors to go beyond the shows, rides and attractions and get an inside look at how SeaWorld San Diego cares for animals. This unparalleled offering features opportunities to meet staff, see animals up close and gain fascinating knowledge, such as how SeaWorld feeds 16,000 animals a day and how a veterinarian gets a blood sample from a dolphin. Visitors can also ask questions, take photos and, most importantly, learn what they can do in their everyday lives to help animals in the wild.
How it works:
As guests arrive at SeaWorld, they will receive an Inside Look Explorer’s Guide, highlighting 11 different areas focused on rescue, care, conservation and research, such as Dolphin Care & Behavior, Orca Care & Research and Bird Rescue & Water Systems. Three locations are behind the scenes where visitors will be granted special access and eight locations are in amphitheaters or other open spaces where visitors will meet an expert. In the Animal Health & Rescue Center, visitors may witness the actual intake of a rescued animal. At eight locations, guests can get their Explorer’s Guide stamped; if they collect all eight stamps, they can pick up a SeaWorld Expert Explorer Pin. Visitors are encouraged to share photos using #parktoplanet.
All of Inside Look experiences are included with park admission. Explorers wanting more information should visit the park’s website for an overview and then check out the detailed schedule on the park map when they arrive.
