  1. Just curious to know. If you have a platinum annual pass from San Antonio and are going to a different park like sea world Orlando. Can you use for friends for free pass at that park? And are the perks for that pass good for a different park that’s on the list of 11 other parks you have access to? Thanks

    • My pass only covers the Orlando and Tampa parks. Each park SeaWorld Orlando, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, Aquatica Orlando, etc. will have their own separate Pass Member deals for the month. It’s best to log into your account to see what this month’s perks are as they change each time 🙂
