SeaWorld San Antonio Tips and Tricks

If you’re in the know, you’re well aware that SeaWorld San Antonio is the only SeaWorld you need to visit. Seasonal events like Bierfest and the perfect blend of rides, shows, and animal experiences set SeaWorld apart from all other theme parks. In just one day at SeaWorld, you can swim with the dolphins, watch orcas glide through the air, and go on a one-of-a-kind thrill ride.

And that’s before you even consider the food. Like most modern theme parks, SeaWorld San Antonio puts a lot of thought into their dining experiences, many of which are complementary to the park itself. Reserve your spot to dine with the orcas or indulge in an all-day dining deal at restaurants like the casual Rio Grille. 

Brush up on all the best tips, tricks, and information you’ll need to plan a memorable day or two at SeaWorld San Antonio. This is one adventure that’s perfect for the whole family.

Park Information


Single day tickets start at $59.99, but that's just the beginning at SeaWorld San Antonio. Guests can also purchase multi-day tickets, or even bundle their SeaWorld admission with admission to the Aquatica water park. Don't forget to throw in an all-day dining deal to save on food and drink throughout the park.

Park Hours

Be sure to check on park hours before you schedule your visit as hours and show times do change. The park is closed on most weekdays throughout the fall, but is open 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday through Sunday as well as select weekdays.
