Welcome to Comfort Suites San Antonio North – Stone Oak, our hotel near SeaWorld San Antonio, Texas. Stay in our comfortable suites to enjoy affordable accommodations with a close proximity to the area’s greatest aquatic amusement park!
Exploring an enormous park like SeaWorld San Antonio can feel like an impossible task in just one day. Use our trusted insider tips & tricks to find out how you can make the most of your visit by skipping the lines, saving money on your tickets, and seeing all of the best attractions!
A visit to SeaWorld San Antonio can prove to be a costly venture for a whole family. In just one day, the excursion can cost you hundreds of dollars in just tickets and food alone. Start by exploring ticket options early. When you purchase yours three or more days in advance, you will benefit from savings of up to 50% on each ticket you buy.
If you are considering visiting the park more than once, or hope to also spend some time at SeaWorld Aquatica, look into the park’s Flex tickets. Flex tickets are nearly the same price as single admission tickets and among other perks, they offer you and the family the freedom to visit both of the SeaWorld parks at your convenience for five consecutive days.
If you live in the Texas area and know that you and the family will plan at least one more SeaWorld excursion throughout the year, consider the park’s Silver, Gold, or Platinum Passes, which offer you various upgrades and unlimited admission for 12 months.
One of the most expensive parts of your SeaWorld excursion can prove to be the dining. Throughout the day, each meal or snack that you buy can run you upwards of $15.00. If you plan to spend the entire day there, the meals can add up quickly. Instead, opt to buy at least one or two of the SeaWorld Dining Passes, which offer you unlimited dining in the park all day long for just $34.99 for adults and $19.99 for children. While the dining passes are not eligible to be shared, you can always take your food to go, find a picnic bench, and enjoy the food together. At the very least, you will enjoy sharing the water bottles and beverages.
If you aren’t sold on the All Day Dining Pass, opt instead for a refillable cup souvenir that allows you to pay once and drink all day long. The park demands lots of walking in the sun and you will be glad to have the needed hydration!
Purchase SeaWorld’s Quick Queue Unlimited Pass to breeze past the lines and avoid queuing for any of your favorite attractions! In order to do and see as much of the gigantic park as possible in one day, if you plan to spend any time on the rides, we definitely recommend upgrading your ticket to include this pass. There are three different levels of the Quick Queue passes, Quick Queue Thrills, Quick Queue Junior, and Quick Queue Unlimited. While the first two options will allow you and the kids one quick entrance to the rides past the lengthy lines, only the unlimited option will allow you a queue-less experience of all of the attractions, as well as the rides, an unlimited amount of times.
SeaWorld has recently released a comprehensive app that is downloadable right to your smartphone. Use the app to manage daily show times, animal encounters, and more! The app updates in real time and will give you an up-to-the-minute assessment of wait times and schedule changes. You can also use it to navigate the park with its detailed maps. Finally, plan your day accordingly based on ride closures and attraction end times. Some of the activities close before the park does and the app is a great way to avoid missing anything important!
Depending on the time of year that you go, SeaWorld often offers a package deal to experience as many of the games as possible. Look for the $20 game card deal that allows you to play every single carnival-style game, park-wide. The games usually cost about $5 each to play, so the card offers a phenomenal amount of savings. All of the games promise some sort of potential souvenir winnings and many of them are “guaranteed win”, meaning that you are promised some sort of prize just for playing. With your game card, you can experience all of the fun that the park has to offer while still bringing home keepsakes and saving money on souvenir shopping!
