Hey, I was just looking at the SEAS Platinum annual pass for next year, and was wondering if it was usually that ridiculously low if purchased from this park? It's nearly a third the price of the annual pass if purchased from BGT/SWO.

Also, I assume I could easily spend a morning at ZDT before staying until close at SeaWorld San Antonio?

I wouldn't recommend trying to do ZDT's and Sea World in the same day. They're really far from each other, and ZDT's opens late and Sea World closes early.

^^ If your intentions are to only ride the coasters, they can be done in the same day. But I recommend exploring both parks more.

The pass is that ridiculously cheap at SWSA. We used ours for admission last night at BGW and got preferred parking included, even though an email from SWSA said preferred parking was only included at SWSA. We are going to test food and merch discounts today.

Interesting about the Platinum Pass pricing as SeaWorld San Antonio has changed policy on this a few times over the past 8 years. I had a San Antonio Pass from 2009 - 2012 when it was around $225 for a two-year Platinum pass. I did not renew in 2013 was I lost my job and when I looked into it again in 2016 there was a disclaimer that you had to be a Texas resident to buy the Platinum Pass at that price. That disclaimer was still listed last year, but at Least one person on TPR said it was not enforced, and since the disclaimer it not there right now they must have changed approaches again. Although the pass does still need to be redeemed at San Antonio first.
As usual, my analysis is free of charge!

The 20% discount was available for food and merch at BGW.

The verbiage about being a resident of Texas to buy a platinum pass does not appear anywhere until after you have paid and received your ticket in email. I contacted Sea World last year when I saw that and they said not to worry about being a NC resident. I processed my pass with no issue at SWSA. And used it Sunday and yesterday for entry and preferred parking at BGW.

I saw it on their twitter/Insta

Do we know who the manufacturer is? It looks like a very mellow GG but I can't quite tell.
