SeaWorld San Antonio is committed to keeping the park as safe as possible.

  • Buffet style offerings at restaurants will be closed or modified
  • Retail shops & queuing areas of rides will have markings for physical distancing
  • Some tours & interactions will be limited to just one party at a time
  • Hand sanitizers will be available at the entrance & exit of al rides
  • Some character interactions will be modified or removed
  • And much more!

With these changes and other changes in mind, we here at Green Vacation Deals have decided to provide a list of tips for you.  You can read through these tips before your visit.  These tips will help you stay even safer at the park!

Tips for Before Your SeaWorld Visit

Tip #1: Buy Your Ticket Ahead of Time

You are going to need to buy your ticket ahead of time.  This will mean limit what you touch once you arrive at the park.

You will also save a lot of money by buying your tickets ahead of time.  This is because SeaWorld San Antonio has a great flash sale on tickets.

And you will need to have a ticket in order to reserve a date.  Which gets to my next tip.

Tip #2: Reserve Your Date

Regardless of whether or not you buy a single-day ticket, multi-day ticket, fun card or annual pass, you will need to reserve a specific date.  This is a bit different than how it was in the past.  I’ve had an annual pass for a few years now to SeaWorld and I’ve always been able to just go whenever I’m in town and could even just decide that day to visit.

But times have changed, and SeaWorld has to limit the amount of guests at the park each day.  And in order to date that, you will have to reserve the date you are visiting ahead of time.  But you’ll have to buy a ticket first.  But once you have your ticket, click here to reserve your date.

Tip #3: Buy your Parking Ahead of Time

Unless your parking is included in your ticket (such as with an annual pass), you will need to buy parking if you drive to SeaWorld.  I recommend you buy your parking ahead of time.  That way, you can buy it in a contactless fashion.  You can add parking on to your purchase when you buy your tickets online.

Tip #4: Get a Face Mask

Do you wear a face mask out in public?  If you don’t already, you’ll need to get one.  And if you already have one, you might want to get another.  You can get one at Etsy that is unique and shows off your interests (such as your favorite sports team or comic book or Disney character).  You can also get one at Amazon or Walmart for a good price, too.

But whether you use one you’ve just purchased or one you already had, you will need to get one.  Because it will be required to get into SeaWorld San Antonio.

Tip #5: Get a Contactless Thermometer

Another thing that is required before you enter the park is a temperature check.  If you want to be able to check your temperature before you go, you can do so with a contactless thermometer like this.  We recommend getting a contactless thermometer because then your whole family can use it.

Tip #6: Get Hand Sanitizer

There will be hand sanitizer stations set up throughout SeaWorld San Antonio.  For example, as I mentioned before, there will be one set up at the entrance and exit of each ride.

But if you want to be even safer, consider getting hand sanitizer.  If you buy it in a travel size like this, then you can easily fit it in a purse, a baby bag, etc.

Tip #7: Get a Contactless Payment App

Want to make safe when you are making purchases in the park?  Get a contactless payment app on your phone.  I’m talking Google Pay, Android Pay, Apple Pay, etc.

Tip #8: Bring Your Own Water Bottle

Another way to cut down on your purchases is to bring your own water bottles to drink during the day.  Drinking water will keep you hydrated from the hot Texas sun.  And it will save you money to buy it beforehand, especially with affordable, good water bottles like this.
