Everything You Need to Know About Quick Queue at SeaWorld Orlando

by Leap on June 27, 2023 12 Orlando

Quick Queue - PinterestOne of the most invaluable perks at any theme park is the ability to skip long lines — especially on hot summer days. That's why we love utilizing SeaWorld Orlando's Quick Queue option, which gives us hours back in our day and makes any visit to the park that much more enjoyable! Curious to learn more? Keep reading because I'm about to share everything you need to know about this awesome add-on.

The Complete Guide to SeaWorld Orlando's Quick Queue

What Is Quick Queue Unlimited?

Quick Queue Unlimited allows frogs to queue in a separate, much shorter line at participating attractions as many times as they want throughout the day. Just bring your eVoucher to any designated Quick Queue entrance and present it to the attendant. All ride height and safety restrictions apply. Note that some rides such as Kraken have specific Quick Queue rows in their vehicles so access to the front row may not be included.

What Attractions Are Included?

Rides included in Quick Queue Unlimited are:

That's just the first tier, though! There's an option to purchase Quick Queue Unlimited AND Reserved Seating at SeaWorld's most popular shows including:

  • Dolphin Theater
  • Orca Encounter
  • Sea Lion & Otter Stadium

SeaWorld Quick Queue - Pipeline

But that's not all! There's a third tier that allows you to add on one-time priority access to Pipeline. With this option, you can ride SeaWorld's newest coaster without waiting, in addition to having that coveted unlimited front-of-the-line access on SeaWorld's most popular rides, PLUS taking advantage of Reserved Seating.

Lastly, if you want to come back to SeaWorld again and again, you can purchase Year-Round Quick Queue which grants you unlimited front-of-the-line access to participating attractions — including Ice Breaker — for a whole 365 days!

How Much Is Quick Queue?

Pricing varies by day and tends to be higher during peak times, including weekends, summer and the holiday season. That being said, seasonal prices for Quick Queue Unlimited for guests 3 and up start at $14.99 each. If you want to add on Reserved Seating, seasonal prices for guests 3 and up start at $19.99 each, and if you want to add on Reserved Seating and that one-time ride on Ice Breaker, prices for guests 3 and up start at $29.99 each. Year-Round Quick Queue is $299 each for guests 3 and up. Park admission is required but not included in any of these prices.

Is Quick Queue Worth It?

SeaWorld Quick Queue - Infinity Falls

While SeaWorld rarely sees two-hour waits that are common at other Orlando theme parks, you can still definitely find yourself waiting over an hour for certain rides — especially the two water rides in the heat of the summer. Wait times in general also tend to get marginally higher during spring break and the holidays. If you're going during any of these peak times, we think Quick Queue is worth it! In the long run, it will end up saving you countless hours during your day and allow you to ride your favorite rides as many times as you want!

If you don't want to purchase Quick Queue ahead of your visit, though, you can always head on over to Guest Services or any of the designated kiosks once you're in the park and purchase it there or go to the SeaWorld Orlando app and purchase it on your phone.

Quick Queue - Ice Breaker

Any Other Tips?

Loose articles, such as cell phones, aren't permitted on any of SeaWorld's coasters. Print out your eVoucher ahead of your visit or go to Guest Services and ask them to print it out. Stuff it in a lanyard pouch so you can easily present it to the team member at any given attraction (and then stuff your lanyard in your shirt before boarding, just to be safe).

Is there a Quick Que package that includes all of the parks (Sea World, Busch Gardens, and Aquatica?)

Mar 25, 2024 at 1:51 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Susie!

There's a SeaWorld/Busch Gardens Thrills vacation package that includes Quick Queue to both of those parks, but other than that, there aren't any multi-park Quick Queue packages.

Hello, I’m planning on going to SeaWorld with my family of five next month. Only four of us will be partaking in rides and we will be doing that two people at a time. Would I be able to buy just two quick queue passes and take turns using them or is it tied specifically to each person‘s name on their personal ticket?

Mar 18, 2024 at 6:38 p.m. Aurora Says...

I have the same question. One adult waits with kids while the teens and parent ride.

Jan 19, 2024 at 2:40 a.m. Katricia Says...

Hi if I purchase quick queue, what happens if the park closes or rides are closed due to weather ect thanks

Nov 20, 2023 at 2:20 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Derek!

For Quick Queue specifically, SeaWorld can typically accommodate a date change or provide a refund if you end up not using it for any ride. However, it is non-refundable if you have already used it for a few rides before inclement weather affects the day.

In general, SeaWorld has an inclement weather policy for general admission tickets that you may want to check out as well.

If I purchase discounted tickets through your site, how can I add on Quik Queue?

Jul 31, 2023 at 8:16 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Christina!

You can purchase Quick Queue directly through SeaWorld Orlando's website in advance or you can wait until you're inside the park. If visiting during a busy season, we'd recommend buying in advance.

Keep hopping!
