‘Pay for a Day’ is Back, as SeaWorld Launches 2021 Fun Card

Guests can safely visit the park for tons of fun by purchasing a 2021 Fun Card for the price of a single day ticket plus, for a limited time, get the rest of 2020 for Free

San Diego CA— “Pay for a Day” is back! The 2021 SeaWorld Fun Card launches today and for the price of a single day admission, includes unlimited visits* for the rest of 2020 for FREE and all of 2021. Guests looking for safe and exciting ways to celebrate the holidays this year can enjoy SeaWorld’s popular Spooktacular (kicking off this weekend) and Christmas Celebration, plus safely experience the park with limited capacity measures over and over again* through 2021 for one low price. At only $93.99 for adults and $88.99 for kids, SeaWorld’s Fun Card is one of the best deals of the year for guests who take advantage of this special offer now.

With a SeaWorld Fun Card in hand, Halloween fun is at every family’s fingertips. SeaWorld’s Spooktacular features physically distanced Halloween dance parties, ALL-NEW Cookie Decorating with Cookie Monster and Elmo, new fall flavor-inspired menu items and yes, CANDY! Spooktacular kicks off Oct. 2 and continues Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays through Nov. 1. In addition to enhancing the park’s already strict health and safety measures, capacity will be significantly limited to create even more open space for guests to enjoy 40 acres of the park’s expansive property. Fun Card holders receive FREE admission to Spooktacular and must make a reservation to visit the park. Guests are encouraged to purchase their date-specific tickets and make reservations soon because space is limited.

SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration – featuring the park’s most cherished holiday traditions – will be back again this year as well, starting in November, and is also included with a SeaWorld Fun Card.


And for thrill seekers, the Fun Card is an invitation to ride the park’s ALL-NEW Emperor, California’s tallest and fastest floorless dive coaster, slated to open next spring.

“As a parent and grandparent, I know firsthand that now more than ever, families are looking for fun things to do that are both safe and affordable,” said Marilyn Hannes, president of SeaWorld San Diego. “We are very excited to debut the 2021 Fun Card so that our guests can enjoy all of our great seasonal experiences and the rest of the park for the remainder of 2020 and for all of 2021.”

The 2021 SeaWorld Fun Card is only $93.99 for ages 10 and older; $88.99 for ages 3 and older (children under 3 do not need a ticket). The Fun Card includes unlimited admission* to SeaWorld for the rest of 2020 and all of 2021. Reservations for SeaWorld are required, must be made in advance, and are very limited to manage capacity. Guests are encouraged to purchase their Fun Cards soon to plan their next trip to the park.
