2024 SeaWorld Orlando Quick Queue Guide: Know Before You Go
A Quick Queue pass is the most popular pass at SeaWorld Orlando.
In this guide, we'll explain what a Quick Queue pass is, what it allows you to do, at which rides the pass can be used, and when to consider purchasing it.
What is a SeaWorld Quick Queue Pass?
A SeaWorld Orlando Quick Queue pass allows you to skip the regular line, by using a faster Quick Queue line, that lets you spend more of your time riding your favorite rides rather than waiting in lines.
A Quick Queue Pass is an additional cost, and you'll need to have purchased a SeaWorld Orlando admission ticket to be able to use it.
Types of Quick Queue Options at SeaWorld Orlando
There are four Quick Queue options available including:
- Quick Queue Unlimited
- Quick Queue Unlimited + Reserved Seating
- Quick Queue Unlimited + Reserved Seating + 1 Ride Use to Pipeline
- Year-Round Quick Queue
1. Quick Queue Unlimited Pass
The Quick Queue Unlimited Pass gives you unlimited front-of-the-line access for one day to all eligible rides.
2. Quick Queue Unlimited + Reserved Seating
This pass offers everything that the Quick Queue Unlimited Pass offers plus provides you with a reserved seating perk for popular shows in the park.
The only catch is that you must arrive 15 minutes before the show to take advantage of your reserved seating.
3. Quick Queue Unlimited + Reserved Seating + 1 Ride Use to Pipeline
This Quick Queue option provides everything the last option offers but also includes a one-time skip-the-line use to the recently opened Pipeline, the Surfcoaster ride.
4. Year-Round Quick Queue
This Quick Queue Pass option allows you to skip the line to eligible rides for 12 consecutive months for as long as your Annual Pass is valid.
This Quick Queue option is what many SeaWorld Orlando Annual Pass holders choose to make the most of their time during the busier seasons.
If you purchased it at the park, you'll receive the Quick Queue pass in ticket form.

How Does a Quick Queue Pass Work at SeaWorld?
- Walk to the Quick Queue line
- Show your Quick Queue ticket to the line attendant
- Allow them to scan your Quick Queue ticket
- Proceed through the Quick Queue line that will lead you directly to the rider loading station
- Enjoy the ride
Most Quick Queue lines bring you directly to the next to the rider loading station, considerably shortening your waiting time.
As long as you have a Quick Queue ticket, or eTicket on your phone, you can walk through the Quick Queue line, show the ride attendant your pass, and they'll scan it and allow you to walk right through the line.
Quick Queue Entrances May Vary
It's important to know that some rides have their Quick Queue line right at the entrance, whereas other rides have the Quick Queue line 30 seconds away.
Manta's Quick Queue line, for example, is located to the left of the regular line, past the Manta lockers, and right before the Manta gift shop.
On the other hand, Mako's Quick Queue line can be found right at the entrance of the regular line.
SeaWorld Orlando's Quick Queue Prices Can Change By Day
It's important to note that prices will vary by day and season.
If you're planning to visit the park during the busy season (the summer season on the weekends), be prepared to pay more on Saturdays and Sundays in particular.
This is when the park is at its busiest, and the prices will reflect that as more visitors will want to skip the lines on these days.
Typically the weekdays will always be cheaper for Quick Queue passes.
When Should I Get a Quick Queue Pass?
If you're visiting the park for one day, and the only time that you can visit is during the weekend, a Quick Queue pass will come in very handy.
As we mentioned, the weekends are typically the busiest time for the parks, which means the lines will also be longer.
When Should I Not Get a Quick Queue Pass?
If you're able to visit the park during the weekdays, you can get in early in the morning right when the park opens.
This is when the park is usually less busy.
On top of this, a useful tip is to experience the park starting from the back.
If you're able to get in early, most visitors will stop by and experience everything that the front of the park has to offer, and then work their way through the park.
By starting from the back, chances are that most of the rides will be empty or have minimal wait time, such as Mako, Kraken, and Infinity Falls.
This will allow you to knock out the most popular rides first before the rest of the crowd gets there. You can find more SeaWorld Orlando tips like this on our page.
Is Quick Queue in SeaWorld Worth it?
Quick Queue is absolutely worth it if you're planning on visiting the park on a weekend.
We've experienced SeaWorld both without a Quick Queue pass and with a Quick Queue pass, and we would choose the visit with the pass every single time.
It will save you countless hours, and you'll be able to experience the entire park with minimal wait times.
On top of that, you can ride your favorite rides as many times as you want. You can finish riding, and get right back in the Quick Queue line to ride again.
