July 4th is one of the busiest days of the season at SeaWorld San Antonio.
To avoid the crowd, get here early! SeaWorld’s parking lot opens at 8:00 a.m. daily. Even though the park isn’t scheduled to open until 10:00 a.m., the Entrance Plaza will be open at 9:00 a.m. At this time, you will be able to enjoy several park areas, including Sharks/The Coral Reef exhibit and Dolphin Cove. Get in early and feed the dolphins before the heat of the day! You may also want to consider carpooling or utilizing alternate transportation, such as the VIA busses.
The 4th of July Celebration will take place both July 3rd and 4th, featuring musical performances, your favorite SeaWorld characters, and, of course, a spectacular fireworks display. Entertainment begins at 7:30 p.m. in Ski Stadium. The fireworks display will begin at 9:45 p.m. and end at 10:00 p.m., when the park closes. Both days will be extremely busy, so you might consider reserving your seats at Ski Stadium for the Celebration. Reserved seating is $25.00 ($20.00 for Pass members), and includes reserved seating, popcorn, a bottle of water, and a glow-in-the-dark sword.
Make your 4th of July Celebration extra special with the VIP experience at the Fireworks Extravaganza Picnic. This fabulous buffet is set in Penguin Picnic Plaza, located directly on the lake front. After having a scrumptious meal, you’ll enjoy the fireworks display from the best seats in the house. Each picnic reservation includes a complimentary blanket to use on the plaza during the show. The Fireworks Extravaganza Picnic is $44.99 for adults and $39.99 for children.
Don’t forget to make time for the Summer Nights shows: the best shows of the season! This is one celebration you won’t want to miss. We hope to see you at the park!
