Summer Spectacular at SeaWorld Orlando

May 27, 2023 - September 4, 2023 (On Select Dates Only)
SeaWorld Summer Spectacular
SeaWorld is open later on Summer Spectacular event nights — and most of the roller coasters remain open as well (weather permitting). The SeaWorld Summer Spectacular extras are included with normal park admission.

Event night highlights include a DJ over at Bayside Stadium that plays high-energy dance music in a fairly large open space called "Club Sea Glow". There are cast member dancers that encourage guest to dance along with atmospheric acts (like light twirlers and stilt walkers) to help keep the party energy going. The Summer Spectacular event nights conclude with a firework display. You can see the "Ignite Fireworks" from just about anywhere around the big lake in the south end of the park.

The event usually takes place on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays throughout the event period — but can also include weekdays over the busy summer months. Please check the official SeaWorld website for specific dates and times of the Summer Spectacular event.

The concerts are taking place in the (air conditioned) Nautilus Theater at 6:00pm only (so just one show per day, not two shows). ... ( read more ... )

Food and Beverage Menu Items for Summer Spectacular 2023 at SeaWorld, Orlando

Well, it's not a food festival, per say — but there is a menu... yay!!! While there's not quite as many food booths for Summer Spectacular as there is for the annual Christmas Celebration or Craft Beer Festival (which overlaps with this festival from July 28th through September 4th, 2023) — there's a couple of really good sounding items on the list. We don't really have a map to help us to pre-locate any of these kiosks but we can infer a general location from their names. For example, the ... ( read more ... )
