I recently bought tickets for Sea World in San Antonio Tx. They are the 3 days 2 parks flex tickets. I purchased them from the UPS app as my husband is a UPS employee. We first went on July 17th to both Aquatica and Sea World we spent only that day and my family loved it. Since the tickets say 3 days 2 parks flex tickets with no mention of the days having to be consecutive days only that we had until August 30th 2019 to use the tickets. So we went again planning to stay both days on August 24 2019 and that is when we were told about this HUGE PROBLEM. I was advised at Sea World that in order for me to stay I would need to purchase tickets at 50% off. I was immediately appalled and asked to speak to the manager. I politely explained that we had driven from Brownsville TX and why should I have to pay for tickets when I already had tickets. The manager was polite and listened to my complaints but I was advised I could only go in that day August 24 2019, I would lose my 3rd day. I did not find that to be legit but we had driven 5 hours to have fun and so I agreed after explaining that there was NO mention in writing anywhere that the days have to be consecutive. I am writing this email because I believe I am owed my 3rd day I did not receive and paid for. This is for myself and my family which is 7 guests. This is an email I sent out to Sea World due to this HUGE complication that ruined our family 2 day trip. For others out there be careful and stand your ground. Especially when there is no proof of you doing anything wrong. Pissed As Hell, Yessica Candanoza

My family and I really enjoyed aquatica. The lines were the usual, but you can easily get a quick pass if you prefer to skip lines. However if slides and rides aren't your thing, there is the pirates cove for kiddies, The lazy river, and the wave pool. The lazy ri er still being g my favorite. Plenty of food and drink concessions reasonably priced even if you don't have dinning pass. Although I recommend the dinning pass if you have a family of 4 or more.

We visit Aquatica at least three times in the summer. It is a great place to have a fun day with your kids. There are two swimming/ play areas for young kids, the wave pool and the lazy river are also great options for young visitors. Be aware that there is no slides for kids less than 42” beside the one that located in the kids area. There are my tips and advice for a great experience: 1- Get all you can eat dine in. You can order food every 90 minutes which comes with an entree and drink or water, fruit or dessert 2- There is a family changing room that has small shower and toilette so you can give the kids showers and be clean and head back home. 3- Another helpful tips from my experience is to avoid holidays weekends. 4- There is change in their policy now, and you could have few bottles of waters and small snacks from outside. Staff are very friendly, welcoming and professional.This place is a must during your visit to San Antonio.

Aquatica is such a fun waterpark to visit for all ages. The park is very clean, and has lots of fun watersides. We enjoyed the many different areas to get wet. We did not have any issue finding shade when we needed it, and will definitely visit again during the week. The crowds were very low, and the pools were only moderately full. We did not have a fill meal at the park. Only snacks. Therefore I can not comment on that. Summer fun in Texas!

we made the mistake of going on Saturday Aug 10th and it was not worth the experience at all we have been to many water parks all over, we have never seen a park this crowded before not even in Orlando we arrived 10 min after opening and it took a good 25 min to park, once we entered the park we tried to find a spot with shade and there was nothing available, not too many spots with shade We did a few slides waiting around 30min at 11:00am, when we returned to the wave pool it was madness, did not feel safe with the amount of people in the pool also, some slides were closed not sure why so it added longer lines we ended up leaving around 2PM and enjoyed the rest of the day in our hotel The park looked very clean and the waterslides are very nice, but the park is not able to handle so many people
