SeaWorld San Antonio
To me, SeaWorld is the perfect theme park for families. You have wonderful shows and animal experiences the whole family can enjoy together. Let’s say you feel you don’t get to spend enough quality time with your kids. Or you just really want to create more memories the whole family can cherish for years to come. These animal experiences and shows are definitely it.
But SeaWorld also has a lot of things specific ages can enjoy. You’ve got great Sesame Street attractions the younger children can enjoy. You’ve got thrill rides the older kids can enjoy. And for adults like us? SeaWorld San Antonio has great adult beverages!
And SeaWorld San Antonio’s location makes it a great place for a family vacation. You can easily get there from Houston, Austin, Corpus Christi, Laredo, and other cities in Texas.

So, I bet you’re ready to find out about coupons! As you can tell, I am more than a little obsessed with SeaWorld, so I’ve spent a lot of time finding the best discounts. Here is what I have found
Often, you can find better deals when you don’t book through an official website. But that is not the case with SeaWorld. SeaWorld offers some of the best deals. The best discounts are during Black Friday. But aside from Black Friday, they offer great deals year-round. Just click here to find out what the current great deal is. They not only offer discounts on general admission. But they also can offer some great deals on the animal experiences I talked about before.
So what happens if you are looking for a ticket during a time SeaWorld San Antonio isn’t have sale? Then this is when you need to book through Tripster. I have an annual pass, so I no longer look for tickets. But my dad doesn’t and he occasionally goes with me to SeaWorld. I normally book tickets through SeaWorld’s website. But on the occasion there is no good deal available on SeaWorld’s website, I book through Tripster. They offer great discounts pretty much year-round. So you know you’ll find a great price there.
