Buying SeaWorld Tickets

SeaWorld Orlando Florida theme park ticketing used to be pretty straight forward but with the opening of Aquatica, they now offer a number of different multi-park tickets to both Aquatica and Busch Gardens. There is even a free shuttle service between Busch Gardens in Tampa and SeaWorld in Orlando.

If you are a Florida resident, you can often get discounts and special privileges with a Florida residents ticket or you can buy an annual pass either just for SeaWorld or in combination with other parks.

To make it easier to budget your food bills, there is an “all day” meal deal as well as a character meal.

SeaWorld also offer a number of special “close-up” and “behind-the-scenes” tours and animal interaction packages for those who want to find out a bit more about the various animals and attractions. Note that some of the tours have minimum age restrictions.

If you don’t like the idea of waiting to get onto some of the more popular rides then like Disney and Universal Studios, SeaWorld also has a “front-of-line” pass called Quick Queue. New from 2013 is the ability to reserve your seats at all the main shows with SeaWorld’s new Signature Reserved Seating ticket.

SeaWorld single and multi-park ticket options are:

For admission to SeaWorld, children under 3 are admitted for free and children between the ages of 3 and 9 may purchase a child ticket. Children aged 10 and above must purchase an adult ticket.

New from 2010 was a SeaWorld Summer Nights ticket, valid after 3 pm during the summer months whilst the SeaWorld Summer Nights (used to be called AfterDark) entertainment is ongoing.

The SeaWorld Quick Queue Unlimited is like the Disney FASTPASS or Universal Express ticket in that it gives you “front of line” access to a number of the main rides at SeaWorld like Manta and Kraken. The pass is good for any number of rides all day.

Alternatives

SeaWorld often offer special deals with their one day ticket, like a second day free or a weekday ticket and you will also find discount coupons in many of the tourist advertising brochures and magazines.

If you are planning on visiting Aquatica and/or Busch Gardens as well and are not visiting Universal Orlando, then a SeaWorld multi-park ticket might be an option. Alternatively the [Orlando FlexTicket] gives you “length of stay” access to SeaWorld, Aquatica, Universal Studios Orlando, Universal Islands of Adventure and Wet ’n Wild plus selected Universal City Walk venues with the option to also include Busch Gardens.

Also check out the special deals with the GoCard Orlando tickets and the GoCard Miami tickets which both include admission to SeaWorld.
