Does my child need an Annual Pass or daily ticket?

Children two years old and younger receive free admission to SeaWorld San Antonio. A guest does not need an Annual Pass until turning three years old. Once your child is three years old, the price would be the same as the other passes. If your two-year old is going to turn three during the season, we recommend buying the Pass early in the season, as it is usually more expensive later in the season.

Can I upgrade my ticket to an Annual Pass or Fun Card?

Guests can upgrade from a general admission ticket to an Annual Pass or Fun Card on the day of their visit. They must take their receipt, hard ticket or E-ticket (receipt preferred) to the Guest Services Window to upgrade from a one-day ticket or two-day ticket to a Fun Card, 1 Year, or Platinum (two-year) Pass on the day of their visit before leaving the park.

How does EZpay work?

Upon signing up for EZpay, you will be responsible for a $25.00 down payment. Your credit card is automatically billed every month thereafter for 11 months. After you sign up for EZpay, you can come redeem your Pass at the park. In order to redeem your EZpay Passes, the credit card holder must be present with the proper identification.
