Kids Free at SeaWorld San Diego in October

It’s all about kids at SeaWorld San Diego. With the purchase of each full-paid adult single-day admission, you will receive one free child single-day admission. Other kids free opportunities include Dine With Shamu®, and Dolphin or Beluga Interaction Programs. Some restrictions apply. We recently experienced Dine with Shamu so have a look at our review.

Kids Free At Sesame Place San Diego, Too!

Bring the little ones and experience some serious water fun at Sesame Place San Diego. Previously Aquatica San Diego, Sesame Place is a fantastic new water theme park based around Sesame Street. Although it’s technically SeaWorld’s seasonal water park, it’s totally separate from the main theme park, and is located around 20-30 minutes away in Chula Vista.

With the purchase of each full-paid adult single-day admission to the Sesame Place waterpark, you’ll receive one free child single-day admission.

Check SeaWorld’s ticket information for more details. And, if you can’t visit during the Kids Free promotion, I have tons of advice on finding discount SeaWorld San Diego tickets.

(Speaking of free, have a look at free things to do in La Jolla.)

    1. We have the annual pass but with school only seem to be able to go 1-2 times per year. We just did the Dine with Shamu dinner–I’ll have to write about that shortly.
