Summer Days Lead to Cool Night at SeaWorld San Diego

Summer is Splashing up a Fun Storm over at SeaWorld in San Diego!

SeaWorld Reverberates with Summer Vibes and Much More

A diverse lineup of performing artists, nighttime animal shows and fireworks make SeaWorld the place to be this summer


SeaWorld® San Diego has a summer full of good times and good vibrations that will transform the park with extended hours, dazzling live entertainment, nighttime animal shows, spectacular fireworks and more! Starting May 28 and running through Sept. 5, SeaWorld stays open late on select nights. The party kicks into high gear June 25 when Summer Vibes performances reverberate throughout the park’s Mission Bay Theater.
“We are excited to bring top tier and exciting entertainment to our guests this summer,” said Rick Schuiteman, SeaWorld’s vice president of entertainment. “We take pride in our ability to not only provide meaningful experiences that educate and inspire our guests to connect with animals, but also entertain with awesome shows, rides and attractions.”

Summer is the best time at SeaWorld. Guests can take in all of their favorites by day—Dolphin Days, the One Ocean Shamu show, the Shark Encounter, the double-launch coaster Manta, and more—then stick around to enjoy a whole new park after dark. Shamu's Celebration: Light Up The Night nighttime killer whale show and the hilarious Sea Lions Tonite sea lion and otter show will amaze visitors while the Celebrate the Wonder fireworks display will cap off the perfect evening at the park. SeaWorld will also present a special extended fireworks show on the 4th of July.

Back for its second season is the incredible performing artists’ series SeaWorld’s Summer Vibes presented by Coca-Cola. Three international variety acts are bringing their talents to the Mission Bay Theater on select dates June 25–Aug. 14. The acclaimed, world’s first 3D dance troupe, Freelusion, kicks off Summer Vibes June 25–28, July 2–5 and 9–12. Gazillion Bubbles, an unbub-lievable extravaganza of bubble artistry, lasers and out-of-this-world special effects, will leave guests spellbound July 16–19, 23–26 and July 30–Aug. 2. The final act to take the stage for Summer Vibe is Fighting Gravity, a one-of-its-kind performance group that will mesmerize audiences by combining black light illusions with dance Aug. 6–14. The good vibrations will also reverberate in the plaza just outside the theater every Summer Vibes’ night with Top 40 hits spun by DJs that include Channel 933’s Marc Thrasher. The party-like atmosphere will be ideal for guests to dance and soak up the fun.

Cirque de la Mer, one of SeaWorld’s most popular daytime shows is back this summer with amazing acrobatic, aerial and trapeze artists’ performances on and over Mission Bay. New this year is pro hydro flight athlete Jake Orel. Orel, who finished second in the 2015 North American Flyboard Championship, will keep guests on the edge of their seats at Cirque Stadium as he defies gravity on his hydro jetboard. Propelled by a powerful stream of water, Orel is lifted out of the water as high as 30 feet to dive, flip and spin in a mind-bending aerial freestyle demonstration.

With so much to see and do, guests can feel the good vibrations at SeaWorld all summer long.

In addition to the Summer Vibes, other upcoming seasonal events include SeaWorld’s Halloween Spooktacular® (weekends Sept. 24–Oct. 30); and SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration® (Nov. 19, 2016–Jan. 1, 2017).
