But I digress...
The second reason is that, in the summer, Sea World has as many as 30,000 visitors a day. On a sunny day in January, they have about 3,000. It was like having the place to ourselves. We even had our own personal tour guides:
The lights were on in the penguin exhibit (if you go in the summer they keep it dark to simulate their natural environment), and we didn't have to fight anybody for a chance to see the sharks or pet the velvety bat rays:
Plus, we could stay safely out of the "Splash Zone" for the animal shows without having to line up an hour beforehand.
The only problem is now I want my own bat ray.
Do you think I could keep it in the bathtub?
