Saint Louis, Missouri – May 24, 2018 – Tripster, a provider of affordable tickets to theme parks, shows, activities, attractions, and hotels for over 16 years, has extended its partnership with SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment™ with the addition of SeaWorld San Antonio to their destination portfolio.
SeaWorld Orlando has been a partner of Tripster with Reserve Orlando since 2007 while SeaWorld San Diego launched in 2013. With the addition of San Antonio’s park, Tripster now sells tickets to all SeaWorld Theme Parks® throughout the United States.
SeaWorld San Antonio is a 250-acre marine mammal park, oceanarium, and animal theme park that has been welcoming guests for almost 30 years. While the San Antonio location is the newest of the SeaWorld parks it does hold the distinction of being the largest of all the parks. Likewise, it is the world’s largest marine-life theme park. Annually, the park has an attendance rate of over 2.6 million visitors.
In addition, the park has a strong focus on conservation and education efforts which can be seen through their Park to Planet initiative. For more than 50 years, rescue and rehabilitation programs have been the primary focus of the parks. To further these goals, SeaWorld Theme Parks® has devoted a portion of tickets sales to conservation efforts as well as programs designed to inspire others to take action and join the efforts.
“We’re proud to expand our partnership with SeaWorld to their San Antonio park,” said John Johnson, President of Tripster. “Our model, which allows vacationers to pair park tickets with area lodging for added value, has proven to be successful in San Diego and Orlando. We are excited about now adding San Antonio to that collection.”
SeaWorld San Antonio joins a strong line-up of theme park partners for Reserve Direct, who also offer online ticket sales for amusement parks such as Walt Disney World®, Universal Orlando Resort™, Busch Gardens®, Knott’s Berry Farm and others.
