SeaWorld San Diego eliminates extra charge for Skytower and Bayside Skyride

Sea World San Diego: The two attractions previously required an extra charge, but will now be free with park admission.

SeaWorld San Diego has announced that, from this point forward, its Skytower and Bayside Skyride rides will no longer be extra charges, but free with park admission.

As a result, I've added both those rides to our SeaWorld San Diego listings page, and they are available for your rating and review.

I love to see parks finding ways to add extra value for their visitors, so I'm glad to see SeaWorld San Diego taking this step to make a visit to its park a bit more affordable and enjoyable.

About time. It was annoying having to pay for those two rides. The Bayside Skyride is one of my favorites in all of Southern California. I plan on enjoying that ride 10 times next time I visit Sea World.

Wow...about time....guess the folks over at Sea World are FINALLY paying attention to their customers...:)
Lets hope the price for admission follows suit and goes down a few bucks. Makes me wonder if recent attendance numbers are partially to thank for this?

I noticed that Sea World Orlando was charging to ride the tower on our July visit. Apparently they always have and I never noticed. They should follow San Diego's lead and do the same.
