Your Cash Is No Longer Accepted at This Orlando Theme Park

You heard that right: Starting August 30, SeaWorld Orlando will no longer accept your cash, as the entire theme park will go cashless. Ashley Carter, news reporter for MyNews13 and a theme park industry insider, broke the news just yesterday:

SeaWorld Orlando and Aquatica are going cashless starting Aug. 30. The parks will only be accepting card and mobile payments at restaurants, shops, ticket windows, parking tolls, etc. Visitors with cash can convert it to a prepaid Visa card at Cash to Card kiosks at the parks.
– Ashley Carter on Twitter 
The nice thing about the park going cashless is the ability to convert your cash into a prepaid Visa card without putting your money away wholly. Still, if you plan on visiting these parks, it’s best to leave your money at home or load it onto your debit card throughout the theme parks.
