One of the favorite San Diego theme parks during summer is Aquatica San Diego. NOW is the time to pick up Aquatica San Diego tickets for the season, which opens on May 25 and runs daily through Sept. 3; weekends only September 8 through October 28.
It’s a bit different than other waterparks as while there are high-speed rides, lazy rivers, and slides for younger kids, amenities such as private cabanas and sandy beaches make it feel a bit more like a beachside resort.
Limited Time Offer: The Aquatica San Diego Splash Pass is by far the best deal for San Diego residents or those who plan to visit the park more than once. It’s $47.99 for unlimited admission for the entire season.
Retail price at the gate for single day Aquatica San Diego tickets is:
- $47.99/adult (ages 10-up).
