SeaWorld San Diego Introduces Unbeatable $99 SOCAL Annual Pass


In an effort to bring park attendance back up SeaWorld San Diego has started offering what may just be the deal of the century for a theme park annual pass this day and age.

SAN DIEGO (Sept. 27, 2017) —Think you’ve seen it all at SeaWorld? Think again. Next year, guests will see many of SeaWorld favorites they’ve enjoyed over the years, but peppered with a lineup of one exciting adventure after another: Electric Eel, the tallest roller coaster in town soaring skyward 150 feet just in time for summer; the always-adorable Elmo starring in an all-new Sesame Street Parade in the spring; and seasonal events to fill a family’s calendar all year long. Plus, SeaWorld’s new SOCAL Pass—which goes on sale tomorrow (Sept. 28, 2017) for less than $100 bucks— makes SeaWorld an affordable visit no one can resist. From eels to Elmo, orcas to otters, penguins to parades, SeaWorld is downright repeatable, and with the new SOCAL Pass, the price is unbeatable!


SeaWorld San Diego Park President Marilyn Hannes unveiled the 2018 lineup and new pricing today.  “As a mom and a grandmother, I know that families are looking to spend time together, make meaningful connections with each other and share a common experience, but not break the bank at the same time,” said Hannes. “SeaWorld takes you out of your world and into the world of the sea, and now we’ve made that excursion even more affordable,” she added. Plus, every visit to SeaWorld helps provide donations and in-kind services every year for animal rescue and conservation efforts. Just this year alone, SeaWorld San Diego has rescued nearly 200 marine mammals and more than 600 birds. “We invite everyone to dive in, have a blast and help us make an impact at the same time,” added Hannes.


The value of SeaWorld’s jam-packed 2018 lineup is being made even greater with the introduction of incredible new prices. The all-new SOCAL Annual Pass, at only $99.99, is a mere $10 more than the cost of a single-day admission (now $89.99).  The value of the pass extends far beyond the price, as it includes 12 months of unlimited admission, free parking, two free guest tickets and discounts on in-park purchases and special member-only events, totaling more than $400 in annual value. SeaWorld is also offering the annual pass on easy payments of less than $9 a month through the park’s EZPay program, with no down payment, which means that a family can visit SeaWorld for a monthly payment less than the cost of a night out to the movies.

SeaWorld is promising a big year in 2018 with the addition of the Electric Eel roller-coaster, Return of Electric Ocean, a new Sesame Street Parade, and all of the seasonal offerings you’ve come to expect.
