Do you have any tips to build my collection?
We have various categories of pins to build your collection with. You can simply collect and trade from our core collection or you can purchase a Series. A Series is a set of pins that have the same theme. Collect the whole Series to start filling up your lanyard.
Collection pins are an assortment of pins that all relate to each other. Pins may be added to a Collection category so that you can add to it year after year. Other pin categories include Limited Edition, Special Edition, Retired, and Pass Member pins.
Do you have any tips for trading?
Seek out SeaWorld Ambassadors near the SeaWorld Gift Shops. They are eager to trade their pins and help you with your collection. Find a SeaWorld Ambassador wearing a black lanyard with pins and ask to trade. You may trade up to 3 pins per Ambassador, per day. You can find pin trading SeaWorld Ambassadors anywhere in the park but they are the easiest to find near the Gift Shops.
