SeaWorld News: New Attractions & Environmental Conservation
Yet again snagging the top spot for being the best water park in the country, SeaWorld Orlando’s Aquatica wins the vote by a landslide. According to USA Today, the park receives on average 1.5 million visitors a year.
SeaWorld’s new CEO, Marc Swanson, has big plans for the park. He has stated that he plans on adding a new attraction to each of the three parks every year, while also working to expand them by building more hotels in order to target multi-day visitors. Learn more
New and Returning Events
Now that certain COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted, the Sesame Street Parade has resumed as of July 10, running Fridays through Sundays. The park has also brought back its deal for complimentary beer for those 21+ until mid-August.
This summer, Electric Ocean is once again livening up SeaWorld by creating a brilliantly colorful and energetic scene, featuring a striking array of music, lights, and dance. The park will end the night off with an invigorating firework and fountain show.
SeaWorld’s biggest development, however, may be the addition of Howl-O-Scream to the Orlando and San Diego parks, as the San Antonio park has already offered this event for twenty years. In an attempt to boost park attendance after the pandemic, SeaWorld announced its fall attraction, beginning in September. An after-dark event for mature audiences, Howl-O-Scream will feature haunted houses and wandering spooks. Visitors are encouraged to ride their favorite rollercoasters at night, if they are up to it.
SeaWorld’s Efforts to Save Corals
SeaWorld has been helping out with funding for the Florida Coral Rescue Center, which is an organization aiming to protect the vulnerable coral reefs from new diseases. SeaWorld has acted as one of the world’s leading zoological organizations, ensuring the safety and protection of sea life.
