Annual Passes

Limited-Time Offer: SoCal Pass starting at $9.00/mo!

★★★★★

“I have been coming to SeaWorld for the past two years with my kid and have to say that now that they are open again they have done a great job at social distancing and making sure everything is clean and sanitized with all the COVID guidelines in place. We are annual pass members and the park has continued to keep us updated on the current offerings, what is open and closed, expectations when at the park, and new systems for reserving tickets to come to the park. .”

– Tracy S. from San Diego, CA

Health and Safety FAQs

Expand All
Will I be required to wear a face covering?

We have worked diligently with state and local health officials, medical experts and consultants, and attraction industry leaders to develop protocols and guidelines to safely reopen our parks, including requirements for employees and guests to wear face coverings.

 

Face coverings are required for guests 2 and older. Guests are not required to wear them while eating and drinking, or in designated relaxation areas of the park. Face shields are not an acceptable face covering, and will not be allowed for entry into the park.

What is considered an acceptable face covering?

Face coverings that fit within the CDC guidelines are considered appropriate for guests when experiencing our parks. We reserve the right to require guests to remove and replace face coverings that are deemed offensive, or tend to provoke, shock, or offend the community or any group. Face shields are not an acceptable face covering, and will not be allowed for entry into the park.

Can I bring my own face covering?

Yes. All Guests ages 2 and older must bring and wear a face covering to enter the park. Click here for San Diego and state of California face covering guidelines and requirements.

When am I allowed to take my face covering off?

Face coverings will not be required when guests are eating or drinking, or in designated relaxation areas of the parks.

Can I still use cash at the parks?

Yes, guests can still use cash to make in-park purchases, but we highly encourage using contactless payments, including credit cards, debit cards, Apple Pay, Google Pay, etc.

How are you handling capacity?

To help maintain physical distancing within our parks, all of our parks will require advance online reservations and will observe capacity limitations for admittance. For more information about the reservation-based admission system, please click here.

How will dining areas be different?

Restaurants across the parks will include arranged seating layouts to accommodate physical distancing. Tables and chairs will be sanitized with increased frequency, condiment and topping stations will be closed, utensils will be pre-packaged, and guests with refillable products will be provided single-use alternatives. In lieu of traditional menus, please click here to see dining options. Additional grab-and-go and pre-packaged food offerings will be added. Buffet-style service areas will be adjusted or closed until further notice.

How will shopping areas be different?

In our retail shops and queues, we will have markings for physical distancing and signage directing guests to defined entrances and exits. To minimize contact of items at checkout, bagging and wrapping materials will be given to customers.

What are you doing to protect the animals in your care from SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19)?

The health and welfare of the animals in our care is always of the utmost importance, and we continue to monitor developments regarding SARS-CoV-2 closely. Our experts are following the recommendations of veterinary and public health officials including the American Veterinary Medical Association and the CDC, as we learn more about how SARS-CoV-2 relates to animal health. 

Our veterinarians are continuously reviewing the most current science and animal health information as well as our response plans that have been developed with feedback from outside animal experts including veterinarians, epidemiologists, and virologists. We are also increasing preventative health screenings during this time. 

Out of an abundance of caution, teams working with certain animals are using additional personal protective equipment. Any new information provided by public health or veterinary professionals is reviewed daily by our animal care experts to determine whether the risk to animal health has changed.

 

How long will these protocols be in place?

These protocols and guidelines serve as enhancements to our existing standard operating procedures due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The protocols and guidelines will be modified based on evolving industry standards and methodologies, public health, and governmental directives, and advancing scientific knowledge on the transmissibility of COVID-19.
