Sea World is one of my family’s favorite places. We love visiting the park because of the fun rides and the incomparable opportunity to get close and personal to so many amazing sea creatures. That is why I was so excited to hear about the new “Just for Kids” Festival. This kid-centric festival brings families together to enjoy fun rides, adorable animals and an all-new party zone and lets families experience SeaWorld’s 50th Celebration through the eyes of a child.
Sing, dance and play the day away Saturdays at SeaWorld Orlando’s “Just for Kids” Festival. This family celebration is included with park admission and takes place Saturdays fromMarch 22 – April 12.
During “Just for Kids”, SeaWorld’s year-long 50th Celebration will be in full swing. Park pathways will come to life with oceans of spontaneous entertainment. Guests will enjoy a Sea of Surprises featuring new interactive experiences and shows, even more up-close animal encounters and the SeaWorld “Surprise Squad” treating park guests with prizes and special experiences every day.
At “Just for Kids”, families can experience warm-hearted whimsical fun and make lasting memories as they dance along to jammin’ DJ’s at the NEW Rockin’ Rockhopper Party in Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin®, get up close with adorable animal friends at the all-new “SEA Garden,” and meet some of their children’s favorite television stars. With SeaWorld’s awesome shows and attractions as part of the mix, “Just for Kids” is a full-day’s excitement that’s sure to inspire the child in everyone!
And there’s more! Kids can go on an educational treasure hunt as they look for the Sea Star icons throughout the park where they’ll discover fun, educational activities. At each location they will collect a stamp and a limited edition Explorer’s card. After visiting all four locations, they’ll receive a coupon to redeem for a special SeaWorld prize at select gift shops.
Then end the night with Shamu & Crew at the Shamu Dance Party at the Village Square located at the front of the park. The party begins one hour prior to park closing with a stilt walker emcee who fills the square with music that the whole family can dance to, including popular line dancing songs and party favorites. The Shamu Dance Party continues until 30 minutes after park closing.Visit SeaWorldOrlando.com for complete details.
