SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — Happy birthday, SeaWorld San Diego!
The park will celebrate its 55th birthday this week with deals for guests and special in-park entertainment. Since the park's opening on March 21, 1964, nearly 175 million people have visited the aquatic theme park.
Not only has the park educated through its attractions, but through its conservation, research, and rescue arms as well.
And guests can save on the celebration. Through Thursday, special $55 weekday tickets are being offered online here. The tickets can be used Monday through Friday on any weekday through April 30. Limited time discounts on other park passes are also available.
The party kicks off with five musical performances a day by the Sea Street Band and celebration moments during Orca Encounter, Dolphin Days, and Sea Lion Live shows from March 21-24. At the Mission Bay Theater, a 55th celebration video will run daily through Memorial Day.
On Thursday, parkgoers will be given free parking and can enjoy 55 cent souvenir bottle refills and $5.50 churro or popcorn and soda combos.
Through March 31, discounts on SeaWorld throwback t-shirts and retro collectible pins will be available, and through April 18, discounts on SeaWorld 55th celebration shirts will be offered.
