Always A Favorite For All Ages: SeaWorld

SeaWorld stays open late so guests have more time to enjoy all their SeaWorld favorites, plus a nighttime sea lion and otter show, “Sea Lions Tonite,” and an all-new nighttime Shamu show dubbed “Shamu Rocks,” a 20-minute musical journey through awesome natural settings around the globe. 

It’s all part of Spring into Night, featuring extended hours and nighttime entertainment, March 31–April 15 and weekends April 21–May 20.  Summer Nights at SeaWorld runs May 26–Sept. 3 and features extended park hours, “Sea Lions Tonite,” “Shamu Rocks,” and “Riptide,” a high-energy show featuring specialty acts, percussionists, hip-hop dancers, live musicians and gymnasts. 

“Believe,” SeaWorld’s all-new daytime killer whale show, features a new two-story stage, a spectacular water fountain that sprays across the width of the show pool, three new underwater cameras that capture Shamu below the surface, a giant three-story whale tail that soars high above the set, and four LED screens that move and rotate as they highlight the power and beauty of the park’s killer whales. 

The 189-acre adventure park features thousands of fascinating mammals, fishes, reptiles, and birds — including manatees at “Manatee Rescue,” killer whales including Shamu, and polar bears, beluga whales, Arctic foxes and walruses at “Wild Arctic.”

Other attractions include “Clyde and Seamore’s Risky Rescue,” a hilarious sea lion, otter and walrus show set on an ill-fated submarine, USS Motley; “Journey To Atlantis,” a wet and wild water coaster and 130,000-gallon Commerson’s dolphin habitat; “Pets Rule!”—a zany show where clever canines, curious cats and unpredictable pigs take charge and show humans who’s the boss; “Shipwreck Rapids” water raft ride; spectacular animal shows, interactive attractions, aquariums, rides and dining facilities. 

To get to SeaWorld from Interstate 5, exit at Sea World Drive.

Prices are ages 10 and older, $56; ages 3–9, $46; children under 3, free; parking $10.  Park hours vary by season.  For more information visit www.seaworldsandiego.com or call(800) 25-SHAMU.
