Experience thrilling rides inspired by the force and power of the sea with a SeaWorld® California One-Day Ticket including SeaWorld’s all-new coaster, Emperor, the tallest and fastest floorless dive coaster in California!

Our guide to SeaWorld California One-Day Ticket

Adventure is calling! Discover a host of incredible wildlife-inspired thrill rides and family-friendly attractions that put you right at the heart of the marine world at SeaWorld in San Diego.

Thrill seekers should head straight to the heart-racing Electric Eel™, a multi-launch coaster with high-energy twists, electrifying loops and inversions. Then feel the thrill of Tidal Twister™, a unique duelling rollercoaster ride featuring high-speed turns and upside-down twists. Soaring more than 60 mph, SeaWorld’s all-new coaster, Emperor, is the tallest and fastest floorless dive coaster in the state. Dangle and drop more than 150 ft on Emperor before plunging 90 degrees into exhilarating loops, a tribute to the Emperor penguins’ journey from chilly, frosted cliffs to their deep dive into the depths of the ocean. Emperor is California’s first floorless dive coaster. And launching in 2023, experience every icy thrill as you navigate three exhilarating launches and reach wind-whipping speeds of up to 40 miles per hour on Arctic Rescue, the Fastest and Longest Straddle Coaster on the West Coast.

Connect with the sea through up-close animal encounters with sea lions, penguins and dolphins. Witness live natural killer whale behaviours up close in Orca Encounter™ then race, explore and play at the interactive attraction Turtle Reef where you’ll experience the world of the sea turtle.

The laughter and learning of Sesame Street come to life at Sesame Street Bay of Play featuring seven Sesame Street-themed dry rides, an interactive musical play area, and eleven water attractions including a 500,000-gallon wave pool – one of the largest in Southern California.

A day at SeaWorld California feels like an ocean adventure worthy of the seven seas.
