I do not Believe (Pun intended) SeaWorld is worth paying $70 to go on a few rides.
Sure Manta and Kraken are fun.. I also enjoy Journey to Atlantis, but you really need to include a few shows Like Clyde and Seymour, Believe, Pets Ahoy, Shark Encounter….

Plus if you want to go up the Tower it’s a few dollars more also…

I wish they still had the free beer... The Free samples were a nice touch..

The nice thing about SeaWorld is that it isn't quite as rushed as other parks. Most of the day involves strolling around at your own pace. The focus of the park is on shows and exhibits, so to answer your question, no. However, the two coasters are excellent. When combined with the best shows and exhibits, it's a good value.

Seaworld isn't nor will it ever be a ride park. It's main focus is on the animals and animal based attractions. The rides where put it more to appease people.. basically "To keep people coming in, we're gonna add some thrill rides" at least that's exactly what management told the operations crew when they started building JTA.

Otherwise what's the point of going for only 3 rides unless your looking to up your personal coaster count.
