Summer at SeaWorld® Features a Sizzling Lineup of New Shows and Live Entertainment

SAN ANTONIO, TX (May 8, 2013) – On Saturday, June 8, three all-new shows will debut at SeaWorld® San Antonio as the park begins its annual “Summer Nights” series.

The highly anticipated show, Pets Ahoy®, features the talents of four-legged stars that will have the whole family laughing from beginning to end. Dogs, cats, birds, rats, pot-belly pigs and a few surprise animal guest stars will demonstrate SeaWorld® encouragement-based training techniques. Guests can see the wonderful connections that happen when animal trainers turn their attention toward animals that aren’t quite from the sea! Most impressive is the fact that nearly all of these animals have been rescued from animal shelters.

During the new “Island Nights” at Aquatica, SeaWorld’s Waterpark™, guests can enjoy a taste of the islands in South Texas. “Island Nights” will feature live music, exhilarating entertainment and Polynesian dancers. “Island Nights” will be included with SeaWorld/Aquatica admission. Plus, guests also can purchase exclusive island-inspired cuisine and beverages.

SeaWorld’s “Summer Nights” series heats up with a brand-new finale show – Sol Celebration. Singers, dancers and musicians will burn the floor with their Latin-inspired dance moves, screamin’ trumpets and elaborate costumes the whole family will enjoy. This new show will take place every summer night under SeaWorld’s signature arches.

Returning seasonal favorites include:

  • Elmo Rocks, the family-friendly Sesame Street® show, where guests can dance and sing along with all their favorite Sesame Street friends.
  • Cool Vibrations, a fast-paced, high-energy water ski show that includes daredevil stunts, graceful moves and superior boat driving.
  • Sea Lions Tonite, starring Clyde and Seamore, who are back with pranks and spoofs funnier than ever.
  • Shamu Rocks! ®, a crowd rockin’, electrifying show featuring world-famous killer whale, Shamu®.

Starting June 8, both parks will have extended hours that keep them open as late as 10 p.m., making Aquatica, SeaWorld’s Waterpark, open later than any other San Antonio area waterpark. That means that with opening times of 10 a.m., guests can enjoy up to an additional five hours of fun than any other area park.

SeaWorld will feature a spectacular fireworks display celebrating Independence Day on July 4, 5 and 6.

Guests can purchase a dual park SeaWorld + Aquatica Fun Card and pay for a day and come back all year, and enjoy the extended hours of SeaWorld® “Summer Nights” and Aquatica “Island Nights.” For specific dates and times, guests can call (210) 520-4SEA or visit
