It’s that time of year again, when Sea World fans start thinking about shopping for travel bargains on Blue Friday aka the day after Thanksgiving, traditionally known as Black Friday

There have been some great deals over the years via the Sea World parks’ promotions. Many felt that last year’s offerings (see below) were a bit flat compared to previous years’ deals & lamented the specified use-by dates. Others were able to take advantage of the deals.

While we wait to see “if” the traditional sale continues & wonder “what” discounts may be extended; thought a thread to pass the time together would be fun.

Pull up a chair and share your thoughts on the sale.

Do you think that:

Sea World will continue the sales?

The offers will be substantial?

Care to share your wish list for this year?

(I’d love to see another Annual Pass offer, BOGO free please :))

If/when this year’s sale is released, please feel free to post the details here so we can all be ready to plan & shop!

    Do these sales typically start on Black Friday or are they available on Thanksgiving day or earlier?

    Earlier, thank goodness! Info was released mid month last year. Teaser email as to deals earlier in week, actual link sent a day or two before Xmas. Believe the first sale date was Wednesday last year?

    If anybody has better recollection, feel free to jump in.:)

    Does anyone remember what the deal was for DC/Dolphin Swim last year? I am looking at doing this for spring break and want to keep my eyes open for good deals!

    We got the DC with Dolphin Swim, with the admissions to SW/BG/AQ (and free parking), for $1060 total for five tickets. I purchased it as the gift option because I didn't have dates yet, but our dates would have been at the high end anyway. I think it saved us almost $1000 total.

    Hi! Thank you for this information, I'm following closely. I know that every year can be different, but were last year's deals, could you combine them for use on the same visit? For example, can I purchase the deals for:
    * Weekday (M-F) admission tix $39.99
    * All Day Dining Deal, Buy one, Get one 50% off , and possibly
    * Quick Queue Unlimited $19 & up

    to use all on the same day.

    Thank you!

    Haven’t had a problem in past years doing so. Making me a bit nervous as to no buzz but SW always tended to be slow to post the monthly APH deals

    Seaworld would be a nice add to our December Disney/UO trip, but really hoping that there's deals similar to last year.

    As a secondary Question, do you think that we would need their Quick Queue on the weekend of December 12-15 or a weekday following?

    Thank you!

    Mabel67 - i’ve Done the first weekend you reference in the past, it was doable. No idea of the 2nd one though

    My experience is if you are an early bird there, things go so much more smoothly.

    Thank you ! We are definitely early birds, but will likely be using the shuttle from Universal resort.
