"SeaWorld San Antonio BMT graduation week"
July 2019 NEW
I was looking for deals and found tripster.com. The transaction was easy and safely done because verification was needed before you can obtain the tickets/passes.

The trip it self was fun. However, it was the month of July so it was very hot and humid. We are from California and the weather was unbearable for the rest of people I was with. Since this was BMT graduation week there was a lot of Airmen’s . Not to mention it’s summer so expect it to be crowders. Couple of shows we try going in and it was so crowded that no sit available and had to move on.

Tip: During the summer expect it to crowded. Bring ice water, umbrella, hat to keep you cool

"Great value!"

We purchased the discounted tickets for Sea World and were able to go directly to the gate entrance. Our tickets were easily scanned digitally from our phones. Great savings and very convenient!

Tip: I did not purchase the All Day Dining pass thru tripster, but I would like to warn everyone that it is not worth the price. The food selection is very limited and the foods specified for purchase with this pass were very subpar. For example one vender had an open container of fly infested potato chips as the only side available covered thru this meal pass. The other items for purchased were in sealed packages. I could go on, but the point is the food you are limited to was old, stale, or cold and chewy.

"Enjoyable but not phenomenal "
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed July 16, 2019 NEW
We chose this over 6 flags and I am glad we did but man, $323 to walk in the door after parking is hard to get over as a dad. I'm not sure it lives up to it's price tag but we did enjoy ourselves. We brought our own water bottle in and filled it up numerous times throughout the day and saved a lot of money. I wish these places would understand that if they sold refreshments at reasonable prices once inside the park, they'd sell more and make the same money with the smaller profit margins and customers would be happier but what do I know. I wish the ski show was earlier in the day along with Shamu. We enjoyed ourselves but can't imagine ever going back.

Very busy weekend but we still had fun. Surprised that the lines weren’t that long to ride shark coaster or eel coaster. We rode them each twice. Water rides had long lines due to the heat. Only ride them once. Loved the dolphin & beluga show!

"Seaworld All Day Dining Plan Review"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed July 15, 2019 NEW
I have reviewed Seaworld and Aquatica before and enjoy them both, but for the first time this year i did the all day dining plan for my day at Seaworld and i will review that. We arrived 40 minutes before park opened and stayed until close on a day the park stayed open till 10pm. Although there are 5 places you can use your wristband, sea star market is really just a gourmet hot pretzel stand with no seating, so that is why i refer to there only being 4 restaurants. Like the All Day Dining at Disney i do not feel you really can "win" if you would normally be a budget minded diner. If i was really paying full price for every meal we would order less pricey things and not snack and eat so often. Otherwise, here is the breakdown and why feel it's not worth it. One of the biggest things is the drinks. It is always very hot at Seaworld. You can get an entree, drink, snack, whatever every 90 minutes....BUT you can only do so at one of the four restaurants....NOT at any of the multitude of stands that exist throughout the park. So, if you want a soda or a bottle of water, and you are not close to a restaurant you need to either buy one or go to the nearest restaurant. If you do choose to go to the restaurant, you have to wait typically in two lines, first the line to get the bottle of water and then the line for the cashier to scan your wristband. The lines are often very long so just getting a bottle of water can be very time consuming. Trying to eat meals is very time consuming as well. Trying to do Seaworld all in one day with rides and shows is very challenging, being limited to only eating in the four restaurants makes it even harder. Most peoples days are based on the show schedule, so you have to eat at whichever one is closest to the next show you want to attend, which often was not what the family wanted ...but it would have been far and caused us to miss shows to go to any other restaurant. Also, on the day we were there Rosas closed down for dinner for an "eat with the characters event" so that wasn't even an option. Moneywise, i think you would have to have 3 meals there to justify the price, the time required to wait for, pay(wristband) for, and eat the meals would mean that you would be missing some shows and rides. The time required to get a drink or a snack makes it prohibitive to do so, and we ended up using a refillable water bottle most of the time instead of waiting. Also, since its not available at the restaurants you have to purchase popcorn or ice cream novelties, at least for my family, these two items are a must, but there is no way to get them on the plan so you have to buy them. A great tip i saw that other people had done, which unfortunately we did not, is not to put the wristbands on. This way only one person has to wait in line, while the other could be riding a ride, seeing a show or bay of play etc. So when we all needed a bottle of water, i could only get one as i wanted my wife and kid to enjoy themselves and not be in line. If we hadn't put our wristbands on i could have just taken all three wristbands and got each of us a drink for the time i spent in line(and walking to the nearest restaurant) instead of just the one

"Not at all what I expected"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed July 14, 2019 NEW
I was severely disappointed in SeaWorld in so many ways. First I will comment I ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND THE QUICK QUEUE. This will make your day more enjoyable since you don't have to wait in the long lines for the rides. Now for my experience...DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THE ALL-DAY DINING!!! It is not available for anything other than at a full restaurant. I thought I could use it to get just a snack, drink, or something small. Nope not at all. You must waste your day standing in a line for at least 45 minutes to get something from a full restaurant. You can grab something from a cart in a short amount of time and get over to see a show or do a ride. In order for the All Day Dining to be worth something you must eat every 90 minutes. I got sick from eating so much yet wanted my monies worth. Won't do that again!!! Unless you spend the money for a refillable drink cup or want to spend a great deal of money buying drinks, there is no where to get a water even though was told was easy to get some water. There are NO WATER FOUNTAINS and even the bathrooms don't have a way to get some water to drink. The BATHROOMS were disgustingly DIRTY. It did not look as if someone cleaned or straightened them at all the entire day. We were there the entire day and visited one bathroom often so could see the lack of maintanance. When you want to see a show, you MUST SHOW UP AT LEAST 45 MINUTES EARLY TO GET A SEAT AT A SHOW. We would have one person stand in line and the other would go do something OR you WILL NOT GET A SEAT. The shows were not what I expected so can't say they were good. Even though it might say you're in a splash zone, you still might not get wet. You have a better chance of getting wet at the whale and sea lion show than anything else. Also recommend PREPAY FOR PARKING. This will save you money and time. BRING SOMETHING TO KEEP YOUR PHONE DRY or you might have to pay for a plastic bag to keep it safe. MAKE SURE YOU BRING CASH since when at a show if you want to buy something, you can't pay by card.
