6 Tips for Family Visit to SeaWorld Abu Dhabi in 2023

Abu Dhabi is gearing up for the grand opening of one of the biggest theme parks in the world: SeaWorld Abu Dhabi.

With its various exciting and educational attractions, you and your family have something to look forward to when it opens next year.

And although the SeaWorld Abu Dhabi opening is still a few months away, there is nothing wrong with getting ready as early as now for your family visit to the most anticipated theme park in the United Arab Emirates and the Middle East.

Planning the Perfect SeaWorld Abu Dhabi Family Outing

For a stress-free, fun and memorable first family visit to SeaWorld Abu Dhabi in 2023, follow these planning tips:

1.     Purchase your tickets online in advance.

A few months before SeaWorld Abu Dhabi opens, expect the park to start selling their tickets on their website.

Ensure you get the right number of tickets for your preferred visiting date by regularly checking their site and purchasing them when they go on sale.

Aside from ensuring you get tickets on your ideal dates, buying them online allows you to check great deals that can help you get more out of your visit to Yas Island, home of SeaWorld Abu Dhabi and the leading entertainment and leisure hub of the UAE.

Yas Island’s theme parks, including Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi and Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi, are incredible venues for fun, exciting and unforgettable group activities in Abu Dhabi.

When you check Yas Island’s website regularly, you may be able to get great deals that allow you and your family to visit the other theme parks here at lower prices.

The island also has a stay and play package, which includes staying at one of the top hotels here and tickets to one or more of the theme parks. You may want to look into these deals if you plan to stay here for more than a day.

Additionally, purchasing your tickets online in advance will allow you and your family to skip the long queues at the entrance on the day of your visit.

Lastly, since you know the exact date of your visit, you’ll have plenty of time to plan your trip to the theme park and minimize the problems you may encounter during your highly anticipated family outing.

2.     Know the lay of the land.

After purchasing your tickets, regularly check SeaWorld Abu Dhabi’s website for the park map and details of their attractions.

Doing so allows you to make a schedule for all your activities, which will surely be jam-packed since the theme park has plenty of attractions and shows.

When you know where the attractions are located and you create an itinerary, you can ensure you and your family won’t miss out on anything and make the most of your visit to the park.

Get details about the locations of the restaurants and snack bars in the park as well so that you know where to go for your meals and snacks. Find out if you can make advance reservations to ensure you have a table when it’s time for your group to eat.

3.     Plan on arriving early at the park.

Since you’re going to SeaWorld Abu Dhabi during its first opening weeks, you and your family will likely visit here with numerous other people.

You’ll have a higher chance of getting ahead of the lines, including the one at the entrance gate, when you and your group arrive early at the park.

Try to arrive at least 30 minutes before SeaWorld Abu Dhabi’s opening time so you and your family are near the gate when it opens.

If you’re bringing a vehicle, arriving early can help you find a good parking spot.

To increase your chances of arriving early at the park, ensure everyone doesn’t stay up too late the night before your visit.

4.     Pack a few essentials.

A trip to an aquapark requires bringing several items that can help your entire family have an incredible and memorable time.

Instruct everyone to pack a bag with a change of clothes and a towel in case they get wet from some attractions.

Pack the same items in your bag and those of your toddlers and younger kids if you don’t want them to bring a backpack.

For toddlers, bring a stroller or baby carrier, a few diapers, extra clothes, formula and their favorite snacks and toys.

Make sure you bring your phone, camera, chargers and cash or cards so you can buy souvenirs and pay for your other purchases.

5.     Ensure everyone enjoys their SeaWorld experience.

Although the theme park is indoors and air-conditioned, exploring it can make everyone feel tired.

Upon completion, SeaWorld Abu Dhabi will have five indoor levels covering a total area of around 183,000 square meters. You and your family will cover a lot of ground to see the various attractions, including the soon-to-be world’s largest marine-life aquarium, and watch different shows.

As such, make sure you and your group drink and eat frequently throughout your visit to keep your energy levels up and enjoy your SeaWorld experience.

Aside from drinking sodas, shakes, smoothies and other beverages you can buy inside the park, remind everyone to sip water frequently throughout the day.

Although a family outing is the perfect excuse to indulge in snacks, sweets and a heavy meal, encourage everyone to order something healthy when you sit down for a meal.

Knowing where the restaurants, cafes, snack bars and other places where you and your family can buy food and beverages in advance and having a map of the park will ensure your group fuels up as needed and stays energized during your visit.

6.     Make sure your children learn something during your park visit.

Lastly, SeaWorld is one of the best theme parks that effectively combines entertainment and education. Because of this, your park itinerary should cover both elements to make the most out of your visit.

Before your outing, try to read some facts about the marine species your children may encounter inside the park. At the very least, look for and save one or two websites on your mobile device you can quickly access to get answers when your kids ask questions.

During guided tours and shows, encourage your children to pay attention and listen to the guides and presenters and join in some activities so they’ll learn something new.

Don’t worry too much about your children forgetting to have fun since they will surely enjoy every minute they spend here.

Since SeaWorld Abu Dhabi’s grand opening is still a few months away, you have plenty of time to plan your first visit to make it a delightful and unforgettable day out with your family.
