The SeaWorld San Antonio theme park and its seasonal Aquatica water park are two of the most popular things for families to do in San Antonio, Texas. When you buy discount SeaWorld San Antonio tickets through authorized sellers, it’s possible to avoid paying gate prices.
Which method you choose depends on whether you will only be visiting SeaWorld San Antonio or also spending a day at Aquatica San Antonio and Six Flags Fiesta Texas. Multi-park tickets can offer substantial savings as can vacation packages that bundle your hotel stay with SeaWorld San Antonio tickets.
I will go over the options here. I only recommend authorized ticket sellers and trusted methods and may be compensated should you make purchases using the links in this post.
SeaWorld San Antonio Frequently Asked Questions and Tips
If you just need tickets, you can jump to where to buy tickets.
Now that you understand the various ticket options, parks, and information, here’s how to buy discount SeaWorld Antonio tickets.
1. Direct From SeaWorld San Antonio
Of course, you can buy SeaWorld San Antonio tickets through their website, which occasionally has special promotions or flash sales.
You’ll pay a $9.99 service fee and tax for online orders. However, same-day tickets are usually more expensive and you will usually save money by purchasing your SeaWorld San Antonio ticket in advance through their website. Whether the service fee adds significant cost or not depends on how many tickets you buy.
You can add the All-Day Dining deal to your ticket which includes 1 entree, 1 side or 1 dessert and 1 regular sized non-alcoholic beverage each time you visit a participating restaurant, up to once per hour until 30 minutes prior to restaurant closing time. You’ll need to show a valid ID and your ticket each time you dine.
As a reminder, the available parks include SeaWorld San Antonio and Aquatica San Antonio (Seaworld’s waterpark which is adjacent to it).
This is a date-specific ticket that includes your reservation.
