Pass Member Account Login

I am having trouble logging in with my email and password, what do I do?

On the Pass Member login page, enter your 16 digit Pass barcode (that begins with the letter A) and zip code in the corresponding fields (shown below) to access your account.

Who can use the Pass Member portal?

All active and expired Pass Members (full paid and EZpay) with a US zip code on their account.

Expired Pass Members can access the Pass Member portal to renew their Passes, but will not have access to all information on the site until their Pass has been renewed. At this time, non-US Pass Members are unable to access the Pass Member portal.

What’s available to Pass Members on the Pass Member portal?

The Pass Member portal is the key to unlocking Pass Member exclusive benefits and offers. Pass Members have access to all the following and more:

• Exclusive Offers
• Discounted Products
• Renewal Offers
• EZpay account access
• List of Monthly Rewards and Pass Benefits

I just bought an Annual Pass. How do I access the Pass Member portal?

Once you have your pass barcode, please visit the account sign-up page, (if you don't have an account with us), enter your email address and fill out the requested pass information. Please see Registration Instructions below for more information.  If you do have an account, please log-in to your Pass Member Portal and click the "Add a Pass" button to import this pass to your profile.

I have an Annual Pass for multiple SeaWorld Parks. Do I need to create a profile on each Pass Member portal?

Multi-park Pass Members only need to create one online profile. Once created, the same profile can be used across all SeaWorld Parks Pass Member portals, including:

• SeaWorld San Diego
• SeaWorld San Antonio
• SeaWorld Orlando
• Busch Gardens Tampa
• Busch Gardens Williamsburg
• Sesame Place
• Aquatica Orlando
• Aquatica San Antonio
• Adventure Island Tampa
• Water Country USA Williamsburg
• Discovery Cove

I have multiple Annual Passes on my account. Can I redeem offers for the other Annual Passes?

Yes, Pass Members can access offers for other Pass Members on their account. When an offer is limited per Pass Member, you can redeem it for other Pass Members in your household in a few ways:


1. Attempt to add the pass to your account.  Login to your account and select the "Add a Pass" box.  (Note: not all passes are able to be merged - most often because a separate account has already been created for them... in this case, use one of the other options).

2. Go to the Pass Member Portal, and use the barcode & zip code method to access the offer

3. Create a separate account for the other person to manage their own offers separately

Registration Restrictions: Pass Members under the age of 13 cannot register an email address to their barcode or save any profile information. They will, however, have access to specific renewal offers for their Pass when logged in via barcode and zip code.

Why can’t I update my profile?

If you logged in using your barcode and zip code, you will be unable to update any profile information. Three easy ways to update your account information:

Sign up for an account (or sign in to your existing one) using your email address and password

• Visit the Tickets & Reservations counter at our park

• Call: 619-222-4SEA

I have an expired Annual Pass (or my Annual Pass is about to expire) and want a new one, what do I do?

If you already signed up on the Pass Member portal using your expired Pass: Log in using your email address and password. Then click the Renew Your Pass button and choose from your exclusive renewal offers.

If you did not sign up on the Pass Member portal using your expired Pass: Sign up with your expired Pass' barcode (that begins with the letter A) and zip code. Then click the Renew Your Pass button and choose from your exclusive renewal offers.

I just bought an Annual Pass and I want to link it to my previous Pass Member profile.

Any new Annual Pass purchased on a park website, front gate or over the phone will not be automatically tied to a previous online profile; however, you can log-in to your Pass Member Portal and add those to your profile using the "Add a Pass" box in your account page (as long as they have not already been attached to another profile).  Only Annual Passes purchased through the online renewal offers will be automatically linked to your profile.

When can I use my Free Guest Tickets included with my Annual Pass?

Silver, Gold, and Platinum Pass Members with Free Guest Ticket rewards can redeem their tickets during special periods throughout the year.
