SeaWorld San Antonio’s 25th Operating Season in Full-swing

One Ocean Approved Hi Res 3SeaWorld San Antonio has kicked off its 25th operating season by offering more days to enjoy the park. This year, SeaWorld has 231 operating days on the calendar, making it the most days in a single year that the seasonal theme park has operated in more than two decades. The park will feature a variety of amazing animals during “Wild Days” every weekend in February.

SeaWorld’s waterpark, Aquatica, will usher in spring when it opens on March 2, which is the earliest advertised 2013 opening of an outdoor waterpark in Texas. The new waterpark opened in May 2012 and features up-close animal experiences along with water rides from the serene to the extreme.

On Saturdays from March 2 through June 1, SeaWorld guests can enjoy extended hours for Spring into Night, featuring the park’s hottest nighttime shows, including:

  • “Shamu Rocks!,” a crowd rockin’, electrifying show      featuring SeaWorld’s famous killer whale, Shamu.
  • “Sea Lions Tonite,” showcasing pinniped-pranksters, Clyde and Seamore, as they spoof the park’s daytime shows.
  • “Elmo Rocks,” a Sesame Street rock ‘n roll musical show starring Elmo with Zoe, Cookie Monster, Bert and Ernie.
  • “Sesame Street Bay of Play Block Party,” guests can dance and sing along with all their favorite Sesame Street friends.

SeaWorld’s “Just for Kids” series takes place on weekends in April and features live children’s shows by nationally-recognized entertainers on Saturdays, including Caillou, Laurie Berkner, Choo Choo Soul and Imagination Movers and the Sesame Street stage show “Elmo Rocks” on Sundays.

On May 4, the park welcomes Dove-award winning and Grammy nominated Christian rock group MercyMe as they headline the park’s Praise Wave event.
