Love love
Sea world,,, it’s an amazing and relaxing Park,,, it’s my opinion) I’ve been in to all W.D.W parks and it’s extremely exhausting parks beautiful of course but they are exhausting ,, While at Sea World there’s always a place to rest,the cast members give directions they all look like they enjoy working there , while in WDW always hiding there tattoos it’s truly amazing the difference always looking exhausted ,,,,, and of course Sea World gives me the opportunity to be able to see part of the Ocean that I otherwise wouldn’t be able to see thank you Sea World

Could use a guide on where familiar stuff is now.
This app used to be helpful. Now you can only look at the current day. You have to go to the website to do anything else. I’m going tomorrow and I’m still trying to figure park and show hours but I guess I won’t be able to until the morning. Worst update ever!!! So bad I actually took the time to write a review which I never do. I like some of the functionality but not at the cost of what they took away, please change it...make it a hybrid at least that has to be better. Right now it’s a waste of space on my phone. :( After visiting the park I can see where some of the updates are helpful. I don’t get on rides so wait times don’t help me. But since the stores changed A Lot having the new descriptions was helpful. I also figured out where the link to the website was in the app to do my future visit planning so I updating my rating. I also appreciate that feedback is being read and responded to so thanks for that!

Please keep getting better!
When I first downloaded the app a couple of years ago it was nearly pointless. It didn’t even have a map it just routed you to a browser. 🙄 They have fixed that! And you can find dining now and even see the menus. But it won’t tell you if it’s closed for the day. No listed hours for dining establishments. I have the platinum pass for me and my two boys and navigating the pass benefits is so obnoxious. I have to go to a browser and log in separately for each pass to redeem options. I still haven’t been able to figure out how to redeem our free animal interaction. It doesn’t show up online only in the kiosk but they said I have to book it a week in advance online but once again, it doesn’t show up online! I’ll have to go wait in line at customer service to do it I suppose. I hate that there is no schedule in the app except for the current day. If the park has closed for the day hours ago why not at least switch to the next day? But a full schedule would be best. Many guests plan ahead. Also the photo key would be so much more convenient if it was in the app. And I would love to hide my old expired annual passes. But they still show up. I also have the year long quick queue, it would be nice if that would show up next to my annual pass but instead it’s buried in all of my old purchases. I have to scroll back through months or receipts to find it. I really am hopeful that all of this is underway though! And I still love you seaworld!

I downloaded this app as I was recommended to do so from the park’s website to make my trip easier but in reality it completely hinders your experience! First of all, it will completely misguide you and tell you things are one way but in real life it completely opposite! ie. we went to the park to ride Kraken and even before leaving the house the app and website said ALL the rides and attractions where open and running but we get to the park and the ride is closed. Then the app “updates” to tell us it’s closed (after arriving and hour and a half past opening) just to give us false hope when we open it again after a show to see that it said Kraken was open! (never was) Also on top of all that, when you did eventually find a functional ride (that will not be for long) the wait times it gives you on this app are again completely wrong from what’s actually happening! Don’t waist your time with this app. SeaWorld doesn’t seem to care to much about costumer satisfaction anymore!

Ok but needs work
This version of the SW and BG parks app is miles better than the last but i have two complaints. 1) The wait times. They are so all over the place and not reliable, it is so frustrating to not be able to count on the app to provide accurate or timely updated data to show how long waits are in the park. The app says one thing and then when you get to the ride it’s another. Please please please get this corrected. 2) Old tickets not being removed. So this might be a personal issue but I went to guest services and was told my old expired passes would drop off and they have yet to do so. In order to use my pass through the app i have to scroll through my purchase history and find my AP purchase that way instead of on the My visit tab. It is super annoying because every park purchase that requires separate tickets + my old expired passes are all there. How can i fix this so only my current pass is on the app and not the old expired ones connected to my account?

Wait times aren’t updating
The Sea World Orlando maps are good. The in park directions are good. The show time lists are good. The calendar is good. The Dining menus are good. Thank you. What is NOT good at all are the Sea World Orlando wait times updates. Wait times should be updated in real time if possible, or at least when the user swipes the window to refresh. That’s not happening. Half an hour and longer after a thunderstorm closed all the rides the app still reported that rides were open. Later, 45 minutes after the rides re-opened the app was reporting all rides were still closed for weather, or reported no ride status at all. I swiped the window to force updates but nothing changed. I closed the app and re-opened it, several times. The app still reported all rides were closed for weather even though they were operating. Its difficult to plan a day if wait times info is meaningless. It wouldn’t be so bad if there were signs in the park showing wait times, but Sea World Orlando just wants everyone to use the app for wait times. Not happy.

Worst customer service
I bought the quick queque that the person that was in customer service was really rude and apparently having a bad day, even thought that I have the platinum pass only included one quick queque so I decided to buy it, but after $160 more that I paid with my annual pass discount, first is already 5 o clock and We haven’t use it the first time because in Sesame Street doesn’t have quick queque big mistake we spend all day in lines and now that I went to ride the ice break this kids with bad actitud told me read first your pass doesn’t included this ride, which the lady who sold it didn’t explained plus I understand his a teen but still we are paying customer and we paying for good services even that I understand the pressure on a park. The worst money spend

This is a pointless app
Maybe make an app for just tickets and pass holders where you can actually access either of them! Why can’t I find my pass barcode?! This is so dumb. It’s like the website on a app, what’s the point of that? Does management even read these?! FIX YOUR APP! UPDATE!!!! They finally listened and made a real app that’s useful! Love that you can even see all the dining areas and their menus but MOST OF ALL my passes are available in a super convenient way!

App won’t update my new passes
I purchased new passes for my family, downloaded the app and logged in. In the app I can see my expired 2019 passes. When I attempt to load the 2023 passes, it states they are associated with another account, but I can see them under my purchases. I’ve called sea world twice and it’s impossible to select an option to speak to anyone and when I found a number online, the wait was 95 hours for a return call that has still yet to come two weeks later. My 4th attempt to chat with someone and I’m told I have to drive to sea world, stand in line, and maybe someone at customer service can help with the issue. Also, because of all of this, I can’t access my pass holder benefits.

Needs an update
The gps section wasn’t very helpful. it didn’t guide you in certain areas. Also, When I went to look at show times, the shows disappeared and I would have to exit out and go back in for them to reappear. I had trouble uploading my annual pass because it couldn’t find it from the barcode number. Wait times for rides would be helpful. Lastly, The map needs an update on restroom locations and rides. If I had listened to the map, I would have walked to the other side of the park for the restroom when there was one next door to the restaurant I was in.

Far From Ideal for Families
The app is good for some things, for example finding your way around the park or locating the best food options. Unfortunately, you cannot log into more than one annual pass at a time so every time you need someone else’s pass information you have to log out and then sign in with their pass. They give you no option to combine passes to the same account and even though all the passes are email bound, the passes function separately from the account rendering the app useless for managing a family’s passes. If you’re an individual, this probably isn’t an issue and things should be just fine.

Please bring back a park hours and schedule section in the app
Love the new map and some other features however I couldn’t find the park hours and schedule section. You can just link it to your website if you want. It’s way easier then scrolling around for shows. And I can’t plan for the future day’s hours unless I go to my internet browser app then go to the SeaWorld website, choose my park, wait for the ads, then click park hours and schedule. Thanks in advance for adding this into the app! I’ll check back over the next couple days

App is great, park is even better!!!
I’ve been to both parks and they are amazing! The App is great also. Everything is easy to find and their wait times and it’s good if your new to the park!! + the online map can give you directions. Both parks of Busch Gardens is Amazing.. Cheetah Hunt and Cobras Curse are hits in Busch Gardens Tampa and Verbolten and Invadr are good for family. I recommend going here florida or Virginia . SeaWorld parks are also amazing, although more at Busch garden park, these smaller parks pack a punch!

New version No Good (update: im told updates coming!)
Update:::: so after posting my original review, Seaworld developer for the app reached out to me and informed me that updates for Passholder info/access will be coming soon. So with that I am updating my rating from 1 start to 4 stars.. 3 stars for what the app has currently and an extra star for the quick response to my concern by Seaworld. This is why we are passholders for the last 15 years! Seaworld is awesome!! As soon as the update to include passholder access, I will update the rating to a perfect 5 star! Thanks Seaworld!! —————- Original review. The old app had its issues, but atleast I could access my Platinum Member Benefits. The new update Member benefits are missing or impossible to find.. clearly this was only thought of Day guests and Non-Faithful Passholders! Sad. Still Love Seaworld.. just not excited about the updated app.

Keep up the good work
This app has been getting better and better but needs more work. One MAJOR suggestion- it needs to keep the pass barcodes somewhere easily accessible. It’s VERY annoying to everyone (cashier, me, people behind me in line!) when I have to log in every time I go to pull it out for discount when I buy things. I just saw under my purchase history, it says ADD TO WALLET but absolutely nothing happens when I click it. My passes are definitely not in my Apple Wallet. Please fix that. Also, make the map a little more user friendly.

Something isn't right with the app
I've been trying to use the app and the website for SeaWorld SA for a few years now and it always tells me there is an error with my email and password. I try to reset it and it takes me to Orlando's page. I can only find my account information by putting in the barcode on the actual website. That isn't helpful if we are going to the park because I have to print them out to carry around. I contacted tech support 2 yrs ago and they just told me to change browsers but that isn't helping with the app or resetting the password. I hope there is a fix because I wish it was as simple as installing and logging in.

Don’t recommend
The app would crash until we found out to turn off location on our settings. The map off to one side and when trying to make it bigger or move over to see the other places, it would immediately go back to its place, most of the time I was staring at a corner of the map. The only great thing was the show times and the character times. Also, I don’t recommend because if you’re using your phones for photos and then pulling up the app, you’re just wasting battery. I just found a paper map and deleted the app while visiting Seaworld San Antonio.

Incredible experience
I am planning A trip to Orlando with my family and downloaded the app to start getting excited. I was very impressed with the ability to find information I was looking for quickly. I appreciate having all of my family passes in one spot and being able to map out where I want to go and what I want to see. I’m very much looking forward to all that there is to see!

Very user friendly. Super easy to navigate with subgroups on different tabs so you can easily hear your search to show you only what your looking for. Rides, shows, animals, food. It has active time gps so you won’t get lost. It shows details of every attraction. Excellent app.

Definitely better but more can be done
Good afternoon - it is wonderful that the applications team is addressing current limitations with the SeaWorld app. It is great that you can book certain things but you need to be able to book: 1. Dinning - reserve seating and what kind of seating 2. Special events - if SeaWorld has events that are coming that local resident can be placed on a waiting list or get in the virtual list. 3. Being able to book rides - I did not see an option to reserve a ride. I will be testing it tomorrow if there is any GPS / location services and to see if it reduces stress, be able to optimize your time at SeaWorld, and also look at your quality management and test management / life cycle management process from the old application to the new application. The whole purpose of a mobile app - is to plan your experiences. Keep up the work. JD

Better but still needs improvements
It’s a much better app than it used to be but there is much room for improvements. One example is under my purchases, I’m seeing ticket purchases from last year or 5 years ago. Ok fine but I don’t need it there as it’s already used and expired. Same thing with my member card, why do I need the ones that are expired still on the app?? Give us the option to erase or hide them. It just makes it confusing and I think I have other things to use.

Horrible app
This app is really horrible, it’s more about soliciting than anything. Unable to add or remove Annual Pass for ones self or add family members, change login info or any of the most basic functions of an amusement park app. Even the latest update is more like a wallet, that appears to be geared towards draining it. To make any aforementioned Annual Pass or account changes, you have to apparently to to the web sight. Not really sure yet, still trying to figure it out. I think once I figure out I will become uninterested with SeaWorld again for another 10 years or so.

What happened to the schedule???
What have you done to this app?!? I can’t find the park hours or the daily schedule, can’t find the list of restaurants, it no longer lets me use my email to access my account ( I have to enter my gawd awful annual pass number)!!! I do like that my annual pass shows up but I don’t know how to get anywhere else. The last time I was in the park I had to open the website, rather than the app. The website thankfully still has the daily schedule. Do you expect people to visit the shops, purchase overpriced animal experiences, and wander aimlessly around your park? If so, you nailed it with this update!!!

A major improvement over the old version, this one is actually usable with times weight times and much more.

A few bugs
So I went to SeaWorld yesterday and there was a sign that said download the seaworld app for wait times. I did so and there are literally no wait times on the app. The app should use mostly the same interface as the website, at least for wait times. Otherwise great app and I love that you can reserve show seats on it with Quick Queue! Update on 1/8/22: Thank you so much to the developers for responding! I cannot wait to go back to SeaWorld with the Waves of Honor program! Thanks again!

Worst technology ever
For being a multi-billion dollar institution, seaworld has the WORST app AND website functions for member benefits. I have been an annual pass holder for over a year and the amount of frustration I've had it's unacceptable. It's not just me, everyone else I've spoken to has had the same experience. We cannot log in to see our benefits online OR on their app. If I could give this a negative star I would. My niece and I went for a day trip, and it was IMPOSSIBLE to get a ticket to skip the lines. Overall SeaWorld is fine, but don't let yourself believe ANYTHING will work in your favor. PS. I never ever write reviews so...

I give it three stars because the wait times aren’t always accurate like one time it said that icebreaker was only 20 minutes and I get there and it says 60 and I waited over an hour for it. the rides are pretty accurate and are hardly ever wrong. it’s very detailed so I can get where I need to go or if I need to find something it’s very easy to find. I love SeaWorld overall because of the fun rides and the delicious food and all the family memories you can make.

Adding Passes
*Update* You can view passes from the app, however you can’t really share them if you purchased for a family since Apple Wallet is advertised but not yet supported. But you can print them out for them which really isn’t convenient in a digital world. Hopefully the fix comes soon. Feedback from developer: "Thanks for the feedback, Bread5. Adding passes to Apple Wallet is not supported yet, but it's on our roadmap. We're working hard to continually improve the app and appreciate your patience during the process." ————- This app is the WORST! You can’t add passes to your apple wallet even though it’s advertised. And don’t bother with customer service because they are just as clueless. This app is a waste of space on your device, don’t bother downloading.

Must Have at the Park
This app is great while your at the park and planning your day. Ride wait times are fairly accurate. The map helps a lot! I wish the app would slow you to access your park passes and perks aswell instead of just making you sign in again to the website. That’s super inconvenient since Wi-Fi and cell service in parts of the park is not great.

Getting there
The developers did a good job in updating this app. And looking through the reviews, someone is listening and responding. (It’s really the only reason I’m writing this review) The app is a lot smoother and visually appealing. For a future patch/release, there should be a functionality that allows the user to buy services through the app, ie tickets, special experiences. Hopefully that’s on the works.

Downloaded and then deleted
My main reason for downloading was that I thought I could add my member passes to my wallet and do other things through the app. You can not and still have to log in through the app, which directs you to the website and you still cannot save the items. While I would like to plan my day if there are certain things that you just can’t do with the app, I may as well just write them down or play it by ear. Besides that, I bought a platinum pass and I don’t want to download each app.

App is good for show times and using the map to find exhibits/dining/shops, but does not show dining hours. I understand that some restaurants may close during the day due to low attendance but they could at least put if a restaurant closes at 3 or 4 when the park is open until 6. App is advertised all over the park, but to find dining hours you had to visit website, which if I have the app I am not going to do.

This app was able to show me where things were and how to get there, but walking around to food venues that aren’t even open with no listing of when is not helpful.

Love the app, wish ride times were updated
Great app. Love having the map & show times on my phone. However, it’s pointless for the rides. They don’t update the times, at least in San Antonio. It will say 5 minute wait and be over an hour. This is all the time, it hardly ever changes. I wish they would be like Disney and keep it updated with current wait times.

Somethings work, but could be better
The map is decent. And it’s reasonable easy to find show times, but my purchases from online didn’t show up, and the wait times are not reflective at all of the ride lengths. I also wish they would push real time notices when rides are down for weather or mechanical issues. Good attempt, but not quite there.
