Florida is one of the most visited tourism locations on Earth. But, even as this article is being written, a hurricane is on its way to the Sunshine State. Heavy rain, extreme heat, sudden showers and hurricanes do happen. SeaWorld has updated their weather policy to become, what they claim, as the most generous in the industry.
Your visit is covered through SeaWorld’s Weather-or-Not Assurance program. This program guarantees the value of your park experience and applies year-round, covering weather events such as rain, lightning, extreme heat, wind, snow, hail and more.
Rain, wind, lighting and hurricanes all occur in Florida. Unexpected downpours actually happen quite often in Orlando. But, SeaWorld wants to make sure you don’t feel cheated out of a full day of fun. SeaWorld’s bad weather policy can go into effect for numerous reasons, such as:
- Inclement weather causes early closure or negatively impacts the park’s operating hours.
- Rides are closed for over 60 minutes due to lightning, strong winds, heat, rain or snow.
- If park temperatures reach a heat index of 110 degrees or above.
You can request your Weather-or-Not Assurance return ticket in person at guest relations. Or you can head to the SeaWorld Weather-or-Not Assurance website. This website will breakdown eligibility and offer an online solution to grabbing return tickets.
Were you aware that SeaWorld Orlando is currently building their eighth roller coaster? This upcoming coaster is rumored to be family focused with a portion of the ride indoors with an Antartica theme.
