Cheapest 2 year tickets for Busch Gardens/Seaworld/Waterparks

I am looking into purchasing the 2 year Platinum passes for Seaworld/BG/Waterparks. I noticed that at each park the prices are different and it states online that the park purchased through must be the original park used at. I remember people paying $20 to have the Super Grover passes shipped to them. Can this be done with the platinum passes also? Are there ever discounts/deals offered on these 2 year passes? The prices at BG Williamsburg is currently $360 and Seaworld San Antonio is $280, so there is quuite a difference for a family of 4. Thanks for any and all help!!

We bought ours through SWSD which was the least expensive option at the time, but sadly is not now. The rep on the phone said since we were going to use them in FL first she would mail them to me. She sent them activated and ready to go through the regular mail at no charge. I'm not sure if SWSA would do this or not, but you can always play dumb and ask if you buy them there how you can use them elsewhere first.

Thanks for the response. I was looking at this, too, since we are going to BG Williamsburg first.

I don't know if there is anywhere cheaper either. We bought the Super Grover Pass, while it is only a 1 year, I bought it at a 20% discount at the end of last year, and got December and all this year to use it. Unlike SWSD, you can activate SGP at any park, not first at Sesame Place. I think one of the reasons SWSD and SWSA are cheaper is that both of them require you to activate at that park first. Good luck.

I think the SGP is a decent deal, as we are planning to hit SWSD, and its new Aquadica, SWO and Aquadica there, BGT and the water park there, and DC with a great discount. If I can charm by DH, we may do BGW too. Oh, and it also got me a discount on my Shamu Dining tickets.

Call the DC and give them your SGP number. With dolphin is $169 and just to swim $99. I thought that was a decent discount as we are doing Christmas Day that right now $289 for dolphin. However, in a another thread it says the days this discount is for. It is not all year long. Oddly, it is for late fall including all of December. We liked going there so much, doing it again this year.
