The Sea Lion show is returning to SeaWorld Orlando, and it will be better than ever. “Clyde and Seamore’s Sea Lion High” will make its debut April 16, 2015. The old show was temporarily replaced with educational-type sessions at the Sea Lion, Walrus and Sea Otter show pool, so it only makes sense that the education theme continue.
What better place for education than school! The new show setting is an aquatic-themed high school called Sea Lion High. Clyde and Seamore are nominated to win scholarhips. Who wouldn’t want to go to Ocean University?! The fun begins as the sea lions must take a crash course in science, dance and gym. You can only imagine what these two ‘class clowns’ will do!
Most schools are a great place for fun, education, exploration and using one’s imagination. SeaWorld knows the value of education and continues to offer learning opportunities to all its guests. ORLANDO TOURIST TIP: Clyde and Seamore’s Sea Lion High show will celebrate teachers in an educational pre-show. If you are an educator, you’ll not want to miss this new show, but be sure to get a seat early for the pre-show. Even if you are not involved with the education system, you’ll love the new show and appreciate the message.
New Ad Campaign for SeaWorld Parks
Speaking of Sea Lions, you’ll be seeing more of Leon, the Sea Lion. He will be the first animal to be featured in a new ad campaign for SeaWorld – “Meet the Animals.” This 9-year-old sea lion lives in the San Antonio theme park. The first ad can be viewed on SeaWorld’s Facebook.
The new ad campaign puts the focus back on SeaWorld in an area where they surpass other theme parks – animal education.
“Research shows that animals are a prime draw for SeaWorld parks,” said Peter Frey, senior marketing officer of SeaWorld Entertainment Inc. “We can continue to put coaster and other types of attractions in there but at the end of the day, people want to connect with our animals. It’s what separates us from everyone else.”
With the launch of the new ad campaign, SeaWorld will donate $30,000 to help institutions that must deal with the rise of sea lion beach strandings that are ongoing along the California coast. SeaWorld’s own record for marine-mammel rescues was broken with their 475th rescue within a year. They have rescued over 500 sea lions this year alone!
After meeting Leon, the ad campaign will move onto dolphins, penguins and other animals. With so much marine life at SeaWorld, there will be no shortage of ad material. Meeting so many animals is bound to be entertaining as well as educational. Let’s also hope it entices people to visit the awesome Orlando theme park.
