For the first time in over a decade, SeaWorld will operate year round. Beginning this month, fans can enjoy 12 continuous months of fun and safe park experiences throughout 2021. The year-round operation includes the return of Wild Days in January, and new this year, Mardi Gras festivities in February.
SeaWorld’s attractions and events have been modified to limit capacity and create a safe experience for guests to roam the park’s 250 acres with friends and families. In addition to enhancing the park’s already strict health and safety measures including increased cleaning and sanitation, temperature checks, face covering requirements, daily capacity will be significantly limited to create even more open space for guests to maintain safe physical distancing. Reservations are required and limited and can be made at SeaWorldSanAntonio.com.
Wild Days, a celebration of wild animals and wild coasters, is back on Saturdays and Sundays from January 9-31, celebrating the park’s commitment to conservation efforts, but also the thrills of some of the best coasters in Texas. The park will feature conservation themed events and up-close animal experiences with physical distancing measures in place. Designed to align with SeaWorld’s core values, Wild Days allows guests the opportunity to explore the animal kingdom, inspire them to care for nature, and encourage them to act and preserve the wild wonders of the world, all while having the thrill of a lifetime. Enjoy up-close animal appearances from SeaWorld’s own Animal Ambassador Team, as well as our friends from the San Antonio Zoo. In addition to SeaWorld’s already inspiring and educational animal presentations, during Wild Days, SeaWorld will feature Flying High, a live educational presentation that introduces guests to some feathered friends from “Last Chance Forever”, an organization dedicated to the rehabilitation and return of sick, injured, and orphaned birds of prey. Featured raptors will include a red-tailed hawk, a great horned owl, and an American bald eagle.
From February 6-28, SeaWorld brings Mardi Gras to South Texas for the first time ever! Guests can grab their beads and celebrate Fat Tuesday all month long throughout the park’s spacious outdoor pathways with plenty of space to roam safely with friends and family. SeaWorld San Antonio will host this New Orleans style carnival, complete with live music, extravagant costumes, and Mardi Gras infused and inspired chef created culinary cuisine like jambalaya, po-boys, shrimp and andouille skewers with dirty rice, and the ever-popular freshly made beignets. In addition to all of the amazing food, guests will be able to indulge in a variety of Mardi Gras themed specialty cocktails including the famous Hurricane and a range of tasty Daiquiris. Guests will feel the French Quarter vibe, indulge in Creole and Cajun food and drink favorites, and dance in the streets.
