Do you know which is the world’s largest marine adventure theme park? Yes you’re right. It’s Sea World San Antonio, the 250 acre Texas theme park which showcases different forms of marine wildlife (such as shamu, dolphins, sharks, seals, sea lions etc), 6 exciting rides, world class animal shows and close encounter with marine life and exhibits. No wonder it’s currently ranked as one of the top 5 most popular attractions in Texas!
While it’s doesn’t exactly cost you an arm or leg to let spontaneity guide your Sea World San Antonio vacation, planning well ahead can be the gateway to great savings. Especially if you’re know where to get Sea World discount tickets. But just how much can you save with such cheap tickets to warrant the hassle?
Let’s illustrate this with some calculations. If a family of four (2 adults and 2 children between 3 to 9) decide to spend 2 days at the park, buying Sea World tickets for each day at the gate will require at least $392. But if the same family gets their tickets online and prints them at home, they get to visit the marine adventure park for just $196. A 50% discount! Do note that the figures used in this illustration is subject to changes so always check the existing prices before making your plans.
Perhaps you may be asking “So, where can I get such Sea World discount tickets?”. Here are some tips :
(1) Buy & Print Get Your Tickets Online Via Sea World’s Official Website
Getting your tickets before reaching the gate helps you slash a modest percentage off the price. For a start, if you get single day passes online and prints them at home, you’ll get 10% off each ticket (subject to conditions). Should you decide to get the multi-day tickets, 2 days of fun at the marine paradise will only cost you the price of 1. While you’re on the website, browse through the “specials” for any promotions which you can further take advantage of. Who knows? You may save much more than you thought!
(2) Stay At Sea World Preferred Hotels
Sea World has a list of preferred hotels which throws in free vacation access passports along your stay with them. These passes allow each guest unlimited access to the park during their period of stay and that alone is a great saving! Besides, staying at such hotels can enhance your holiday experience since they’re within such close proximity to the parks.
(3) Special Privileges For AAA Members Senior Citizens & Military Personnel
Do you know that if you’re a AAA member, senior citizen or military personnel, you’re also entitled to specials for Sea World admission? AAA members receive special discounts while for senior citizens get a $3 off a single day pass. As for military personnel and 3 of their dependents, they get a complimentary admission each! Remember to identify yourself at the gate
(4) Buy Unutilised Tickets or Passes Via Online Forums, Classifieds, Auctions
Yes, one man’s junk is another’s treasure. If you’re willing to scour through some of these classifieds like Craiglist or auction sites like eBay, there are great bargains waiting to be found. People are letting go of their unutilized tickets almost for nothing. For example, a set of 3 child admission tickets are selling at $20 on eBay. That’s a whopping $115 saved off the gate price!
