TAKE AN ‘INSIDE LOOK’ AT SEAWORLD: SeaWorld guests are invited to get a peek behind the scenes of SeaWorld during Inside Look. This popular program returns in 2020, with special access to five animal areas of the park: orca open house, sea lion rescue story, animal rescue facility, Humboldt penguin habitat and pilot whale and dolphin presentation. At each of the animal areas, guests will receive special, up-close access and will be able to pose the questions they’ve always wanted to ask. Plus, some of SeaWorld’s most important community partners will be on hand to share how they partner with SeaWorld to help animals and the environment outside the park’s borders, including Helen Woodward Animal Center, Helping Paws, Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute and more. Guests who visit all six areas and get their map stamped can receive a collectible SeaWorld animal pin. Inside Look, which is open to any guest and included with park admission, takes place Feb. 8–9, Feb. 15–17, Feb. 22–23 Feb. 29–March 1
