Summer Shows at SeaWorld

New Killer Whale Show at SeaWorld

This summer, guests at SeaWorld Orlando will be treated to two new shows. Generation Nature LIVE and Shamu’s Celebration: Light Up The Night are not to be missed. The all-new nighttime show, Shamu’s Celebration, begins this Saturday, June 21, 2014. It is a high energy show featuring new music and killer whale behaviors.

The daytime show, Generation Nature LIVE also starts on the Summer Solstice and provides a way for guests to connect with animals and explore nature. Guests can meet SeaWorld personnel that are directly involved with animal rescue and rehabilitation. They will share their unique stories about the many animals they have rescued and care for. Along the way, this Orlando theme park is hoping guests will discover how they can take part in protecting wildlife within their own habitats.

ORLANDO TOURIST TIP: Guests can save $15 on a ticket valid any day of the week when purchasing a new ticket called “Your Day, Priced Your Way.” Providing your schedule is flexible, you can save even more. These tickets are valid for one day’s admission and must be used within one year from the date of purchase. You must also be a U.S. resident and order tickets directly from SeaWorld.

If it has been awhile since you’ve visited this Orlando theme park, these new summer shows are not the only thing you’ll not want to miss. Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin is a fairly new attraction and is quite the adventure to experience. Explore a massive penguin colony of more than 250 penguins! A family-friendly ride, Antarctica, is a great way to gain an up-close view of these animals.

Let’s also not forget about Manta. This favorite among roller coaster enthusiasts will have you gliding around the theme park like a manta ray. It is especially fun to ride at night. And speaking about night time fun, make sure to join the Shamu’s Dance Party at the Village Square located in front of the park. It opens one hour before the park closes, and a half hour after – for those who just aren’t ready to call it a day.

Summer Nights ends August 10, 2014. For more information visit SeaWorldOrlando.com.

Island Nights and Summer Nights

With the sun setting later in the Summer, many attractions change their schedules to take advantage of the longer days and make up for the hot afternoons and summer rain showers. Busch Gardens, SeaWorld and Adventure Island are bringing back their summer sunset celebrations called “Summer Nights” and “Island Nights.”

Island Nights at Adventure Island will take place every Thursday, Friday and Saturday, June 14 through August 11 (5pm – 9pm). DJs lead the party with games and music on the beach while street performers keep the celebration going until 9:00 p.m. There are several culinary offerings, including island shrimp, empanadas, sangria, frozen drinks and more.

Summer Nights at Busch Gardens and SeaWorld consist of a nighttime spectacular taking place when the sun sets. Busch Gardens begins their summer schedule June 9, while SeaWorld begins theirs on June 23; both run through August 12.

At SeaWorld their Summer Nights celebration includes:

  • Shamu Rocks
    Rock the night away, with Shamu. This show has more flash—and certainly more splash—than a rock concert.
  • Sea Lions Tonight
    It’s comedy night at SeaWorld as their dynamic sea lion and otter duo—Clyde and Seamore—make life a little crazy for their stage manager.
  • Reflections
    Gather seaside along the Waterfront Village for this spectacular celebration of animated fountains and dazzling fireworks. Or take a seat in the Bayside Stadium and enjoy the show from the comforts of their theater-style seating.

Cheetah Hunt at Busch Gardens

At Busch Gardens their Summer Nights celebration includes:

  • Cheetah Hunt
    Launch into the ultimate excitement of Cheetah Hunt, their newest roller coaster experience that coaster enthusiasts can’t stop talking about. The darkness gives the graceful predator a new twist.
  • Kinetix
    Kinetix’s energizing performances include live musicians, singers, dancers and artists from around the world every night on the Gwazi Park stage.
  • “Let’s Get Loud”
    On the Stage in the Marrakesh Theater, singers, dancers and musicians heat up Summer Nights with popular contemporary music and dance, incorporating the Latin flair of Miami’s South Beach.
  • End your Summer Nights evening with an amazing fireworks finale every night, right after Kinetix.

No matter which Florida theme park you visit this Summer, you are sure to have a great time with extended hours and special events. ORLANDO TOURIST TIP: Be sure to plan for the afternoon rain showers. They happen nearly every day. Check the daily forecast before heading out in the morning. With a little planning, you won’t skip a beat in your fun vacation. Enjoy!
