SAN ANTONIO – While San Antonio theme parks attract vacationers, locals and families in search of fun, they can also attract criminals.

KSAT 12 requested address surveys for Six Flags Fiesta Texas, Sea World, the Kiddie Park, Splashtown, the San Antonio Zoo and Morgan's Wonderland from the San Antonio Police Department.

Address surveys detail the number of times authorities were called out to the summer attractions, when they were called out and a description regarding why police were called out. 

The data below singles out burglary of vehicle, theft and theft of vehicle calls from Jan. 1, 2017, to July 17, 2017. 

Address surveys showed that criminals struck multiple times in one day. In fact, according to a report, police were called to Six Flags Fiesta Texas six times on June 25 for six reported car burglaries. Police were called to Sea World eight times over four hours for reports of car burglaries on July 16.
