SeaWorld to offer guests an inside look at animal care within the theme park

Special event is included within each ticket

SeaWorld is offering guests an inside peek at their theme park during a special event.


SeaWorld Inside Look features six unique, entirely behind-the-scenes experiences where guests can hear and see firsthand what goes into providing the care for animals from the experts who do it every day.


“New this year, guests can also attend an intimate socially distanced Trainer Talk with one of the park’s animal care specialists,” the theme park said.


Capacity for the events will be “significantly limited” to help promote safe physical distancing.


SeaWorld offered a brief explanation of what guests can expect when visiting the Inside Look locations.
