I'll admit it, I love theme parks, but I love food even more. I am a foodie at heart, and I would be lying if I told you I'm not excited for SeaWorld San Diego's Seven Seas Food Festival, running from May 2 - May 24, 2015.
Starting this Saturday, guests will be able to explore and celebrate culinary creations created by SeaWorld’s Executive Chef, Axel Dirolf, seen in the video below. SeaWorld’s Seven Seas Food Festival dates are May 2–3, 9–10, 16–17 and 23–24.
Throughout the park guests may embark on a culinary voyage around the world without leaving San Diego and enjoy diverse flavors from California, France, Nuevo Baja, Asia, Mediterranean, South America and the Caribbean. Each location features architectural facades that immerse each guest into the culinary landscape.
Here’s a look at the highlights of Seven Seas Food Festival at SeaWorld San Diego: Internationally-inspired culinary offerings: With 10 different locations throughout the park, culinary destinations will be brimming with internationally-inspired food choices! A small sampling of food items include:
- Artisanal Artichoke Chicken Mozzarella Sausage at California Farm Flavors
- Seared Diver Caught Sea Scallop at California Ocean Flavors
- Sustainable Tuna Poke at California Gastro Pub
- Warm Brie & Duck Confit at the French Bistro

These flavors and more can be found at each location, however, the best way to experience the Seven Seas Food Festival is with the Seven Seas Food and Drink Sampler for $40. Guests will be able to choose their own culinary adventure with up to five food items and five drink items from any of the festival’s food locations. A food only option is available for $20.

Josh is a designer and got an idea one day in May 2015 and locked himself in a room for a month and created Thrillz! A website where users can view, edit, create, review, rate and read about their favorite theme parks, rides, shows and more from all around the world.
As the creator of the Thrillz website, Josh not only loves theme park, he even worked at one, owned by a mouse, in California. He also is a foodie that enjoys popcorn & churros, but is still looking for that perfect theme park burger! Josh currently lives in Austin, Texas, USA.
