Have you ever had the opportunity to experience a theme park at night? Many, many, many years ago, I had the opportunity to see and experience a theme park at night. I was still in High-School and it was our grand-nite trip. I was so happy to receive an invitation from SeaWorld Orlando inviting us to experience SeaWorld Orlando during their NEW Summer Nights! Now you and your family have the opportunity to experience SeaWorld Orlando at night as well.
What do should you expect to experience at SeaWorld Orlando Summer Nights? A fantastic world of lights and music from SeaWorld’s headliners and popular shows and of course who can resist to ride the coasters under the stars, you will definitely want to ride Manta, Kraken, and Journey to Atlantis! SeaWorld Orlando Summer Nights began June 22 and will run through August 11, the park will be open until 10 p.m. daily. Remember a couple of weeks ago I told you how my family and I got to go experience the new SeaWorld attraction Empire of the Penguins? You can read all about it here Empire of the Penguin at night is a totally different experience at night, this enchanting world comes to life under bright lights that transform the landscape. We got to enjoy the comedic timing of Clyde and Seamore at the Sea Lions Tonite show and finally Shamu Rocks is the best way to close your experience at SeaWorld with a BANG! SeaWorld Orlando’s sky fills with colorful lights from the Shamu Rocks show fireworks finally, it is AMAZING!
Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin: transports guests into a rarely seen, icy world. Families feel the majestic grandeur of the South Pole and see it through the eyes of a special hero penguin named Puck on a first-of-its-kind family ride. Guests explore a massive penguin colony in an expanse that envelops them in cool extremes, both above and below the penguins’ icy world. When the sun goes down, the ice of Antarctica is illuminated in vibrant color. It’s a must-see, one-of-a-kind theme park experience only at SeaWorld in Orlando.
SeaWorld’s popular sea lion comedic duo takes the laughs into the night. Hilarious hijinks ensue in this evening show as the park’s talented sea lions, otters and walrus parody other favorite daytime SeaWorld shows and attractions.
Rock the night away with Shamu during this spectacular killer whale show with more flash – and certainly more splash – than a rock concert. Shamu Rocks is a high-energy celebration of unprecedented proportions, combining awe-inspiring killer whales with a stunning light show, water fountain display and music from some of the hottest rock stars in the industry. And new this year is an electrifying twist on this classic favorite! End your day at SeaWorld Orlando with a bang at the final Shamu Rocks show of the evening, where a rockin’ fireworks finale will light up the night sky.
We were having so much fun at Shamu Rocks that we totally missed the NEW Party with Shamu & Friends. You can enjoy Shamu & Friends as they dance the night away at the Village Square located at the front of the park. The party begins every night one hour prior to park closing with an emcee on stilts who fills the square with music that the whole family can dance to, including popular line dancing songs and party favorites. With countless bubbles floating overhead and music in the air, this celebration of summer is sure to provide non-stop fun for all ages. The Party continues 30 minutes after park closing.
SeaWorld Orlando also offers a Summer Nights VIP Tour: You can experience a VIP visit, where you will have a six-hour guided tour of the park which includes an opportunity to feed dolphins, front-of-the-line access to popular rides and reserve seating at the night shows and more. For more information you can visit the SeaWorld Orlando Website. I want to thank SeaWorld Orlando for the invitation to experience Summer Nights, we had an AMAZING time and cannot wait for the next time we go!
