SeaWorld is committed to the health and safety of its guests, employees, and the animals in its care. The parks have worked diligently with state and local health officials, outside consultants, and attraction industry leaders to enhance already strict health, safety, and cleanliness standards. These 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.


Guests can purchase annual passes at all parks which provide admission for 12 months including admission to popular events. All single or multi-day tickets must be purchased online and guests can also add on a dining bundle, varied by park, that allows guests to dine all day during their visit.
