I'm down in San Diego for a few days visiting my sister so I thought it'd be a great idea to head out on the trails around mission bay and see if I could get some pics/video of SeaWorld.

Heading to the park area via the trails around Mission Bay. If you're ever vacationing down here they are really great.
Heading towards the park via the Boat Ramp off SeaWorld Drive.
Don't think that truck is carrying anything for the park, but you never know.
And there it is, Emperor.
The track is definitely done, obviously we can't get in to see what's going with the themeing, station, etc.
Walking around to the front end of the park.
A clear shot of Journey to Atlantis. And sure, I could have walked up there and gotten closer pictures, but I didn't really want to chance it.
A very empty parking lot. It was bizarre.
Thanks for reading/watching. Hopefully soon we'll be able to actually venture inside the park and get some rides on Emperor.
Also, the reason I've been coming to San Diego so much lately. My sister was just diagnosed with terminal stage 4 bone cancer. Since we just met a few years ago for the first time, we've been trying to hang out as much as we can. And these past few days have been AMAZING!
She's set up a GoFundMe for a cross country RV trip. I'll be joining her on this trip when I can, and she's going to be documenting her travels. If you can, please consider donating. We also have some cool park stuff we're going to be auctioning off for her GoFundMe over the next few weeks. Stay tuned!
This past weekend we were down in San Diego to see some family so we did a quick drive by of SeaWorld on both Saturday and Sunday. Also, will add, checking into a hotel for the first time since all of this started was super weird. So be prepared for that the first time you do so.
We were hoping to actually be able to stop somewhere, park and take pictures, but that didn't seem possible without breaking a whole lot of rules. Still, some of these pics came out ok. Enjoy!
I see something!!
Promise, it's back there somewhere. =)
Emperor and Electric Eel!
Journey to Atlantis looks SO much better with it's new colors!!
On Sunday we took a different route to get to where we were going, was again hoping we could park somewhere to take pics. Didn't happy, but here's a different view!
Can't wait until we have some parks reopening here in CA. Hope this tides you over until then!
We hope you enjoyed this quick drive-by of the park. We hope we can bring you some fun from inside in the very near future.
