seaworld after dark

If you’ve ever seen illuminations at Epcot or Magic Kingdom than you already know Orlando theme parks know how to put on a nighttime show. And this summer, SeaWorld holds its own with some impressive nightastic events!

Stay up late this summer with SeaWorld as they welcome back their annual After Dark shows and hours. The new SeaWorld hours begin May 29 and end August 15.

SeaWorld After Dark transforms daytime favorites into nighttime spectacles! SeaWorld After Dark showcases the park in a whole new light; with nighttime rock ‘n’ roll extravaganza, a high-energy Shamu show, a hilarious sea lion show and a mystifying fireworks finale. Plus, guests will still get to experience all that’s awesome during the day, like Manta, up-close animal encounters and spectacular shows.

First up for the after dark park experience is the show Shamu Rocks which is a spectacular rock ‘n’ roll killer whale show. Shamu Rocks is a high energy concert, combining killer whales with a stunning light show and music from some of the hottest rocks stars in the industry. And this year, the popular show will be presented without trainers being in the tank with the whales. This is sure to be an exciting adventure, as the whales have never before performed live without the assistance of a trainer.

At the Sea Lions Tonite show, the popular Sea Lion comedic duo will have you in a ball of laughter as hilarious hijinks and the talented sea lions, otters and walrus parody other favorite shows and attractions.

And to end the spectacular evening, a fireworks and fountains finale called Reflections, which is best seen from seats at Bayside Stadium, will illuminate the night sky. Guests will be amazed at the majestic beauty the fireworks and fountains create. Through the thrilling and inspirational music of SeaWorld’s shows, Reflections lights up the night like never before.

If you want to be a part of the VIP club, join the After Dark VIP tour. This seven-hour, guided tour includes dinner and an opportunity to feed dolphins, front-of-line access to Manta and reserved seating at the exhilarating night shows.

And if you’re wondering what it’d be like to ride some of SeaWorld’s most popular rides at night, you can soon find out how thrilling it is! Guests will be able to enjoy all of SeaWorld’s rides, including the brand-new Manta flying roller coaster. Experience what it’s like to spin, glide, skim and fly with the largest stingrays when riding Manta, by moonlight. Plus, the After Dark events are included in the price of a regular SeaWorld ticket.  

If seeing the ocean’s most fascinating animals at night exhilarates your senses, then make sure you visit SeaWorld for the After Dark events starting on May 28.
