Summer Nights 2012 at SeaWorld Orlando

Summer Nights at SeaWorld now through Aug 12th. A cloudy first day for Summer nights at SeaWorld. Entertainment around the park including some characters that we only see in the morning. Night-time shows: Shamu Rocks, Sealions Tonite, and Reflections fireworks.

Elmo and Friends out for photo op.

Full show SeaLions tonite:

Finale of Sealions tonite. Clyde, Seamore and Winston Walrus shake and dance to LMFAO's popular hit song.

Shamu Rocks Summer Nights 2012. The almost full Shamu Rocks show. At one point before the show the waiting crowd did the wave for a couple of mins.  Gotta love peoples reactions as they see themselves on the big screen during the pre-show.
 Video Shamu Rocks show:

Before the fireworks show a DJ had the crowd dancing. Also a performance by Dragon Legends Acrobats. The back Bayside stadium pathway was opened at 6pm. Nothing really happening in that area.

The fireworks show was the same from last year. Just a few different colors and the way some of the fireworks were launced are new. Did not hear music from the new turtle trek until the end of the show.
Other than that a great night. Glad we went yesterday as it looks like it will rain for the next couple of days.

SeaWorld Update 6.23.12.

The Underwater viewing area still has not changed since last visit. Whales are able to swim in the pool after the show. The tables and chairs which was all stacked in one side earlier in the week have now been spread out around the DWS area.

Did not see Tilikum out for the 2 One Ocean show and the Shamu Rocks show we watched for the debut of Summer Nights. The whales did a lot more splashing though.

Makaio came up to the slide out during one of the One Ocean shows. Not sure if it was his first time, the trainers got really excited when he did which happened when the 2 whales are about to kiss (side by side). Kiss did not happen because he was in the center of the 2 whales. Took him a little longer to get himself down. Did not get to get a picture... We were in the sides but im sure its on youtube somewhere.

New souvenir popcorn buckets available for sale at Shamu Stadium. They are $10 and believe is a 99 cents refill.

Have food allergies? SeaWorld has got you covered. Allergy friendly eateries around the park are now labeled on the park map.

Construction update for the new Antarctica attraction: New steel beams are now being placed next to the old penguin encounter structure. A few days ago a crane joined the construction site.

About a week ago several sealions were born, Here is one of them snuggling up with its mom? or dad.

There are 2 large turtles in this picture can you spot them?
Other Videos:
