Now that Memorial Day has come and passed, it’s time to start thinking about summer vacation.  And one place I know you’ll want to visit this summer is SeaWorld theme park in Orlando, Florida.  There are a bunch of reasons why you’ll want to go.  The animal experiences, the thrill rides, and Sesame Street, for starters.  But I think you’ll also want to go for their summertime event, Electric Ocean!

Today I want to tell you about the event.  And then I’ll tell you how you can save money on tickets to SeaWorld?

When is Electric Ocean at SeaWorld?

Electric Ocean takes place in the summertime at SeaWorld.  It started on May 27, 2022.  It runs through September 5, 2022.

But it only takes place on select dates.  It takes place on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from May 27, 2022, through June 12, 2022.

Then starting on June 17, 2022 through August 7, 2022, it runs every day!

But then it is back to being only on Friday, Saturdays, and Sundays from August 12, 2022, through September 4, 2022.

And then it is also available on Labor Day, September 5, 2022.

Will This Event Have Fireworks?

One of the exciting parts of Electric Ocean is that the park is open later than it is normally open.  And since it is open at night, you may be wondering if there are fireworks.

And luckily the answer is yes, there are fireworks!  And this year, they’ll take it to an all-new level.  You can enjoy Ignite 360.  It is a fireworks, lasers, flames, and fountains spectacular.  It brings the amazing colors of the sea to the skies above the park.  And you’ll be able to see it from all around SeaWorld’s large central lake.  This includes from inside Bayside Stadium, The Waterfront, and the Orca Encounter Pathway.

4th of July Fireworks

One day you’ll really love seeing the fireworks is on the Fourth of July.  Because what is more American than seeing fireworks on the 4th of July?

And on the 4th of July, they’ll have special 4th of July fireworks.  They’ll take place directly after Ignite 360.

You’ll get a great view of both Ignite 360 and the Fourth of July fireworks if you go ahead and now book Reserved Seating for the event.  And it is only $10 per person.  You can book this here.

Ignite 360 Fireworks Private Viewing Happy Hour

Another fun way to experience Ignite 360 on any night of the Electric Ocean event is with the Ignite 360 Fireworks Private Viewing Happy Hour.  You get an all-inclusive happy hour featuring specialty cocktails and Mediterranean-inspired food on a private waterfront patio.  This gives you a wonderful view of the nighttime spectacular!

You can get tickets for this here.

Does the Event Have Special Entertainment & Experiences?

An exciting thing about this event is all the entertainment and experiences you can have that you don’t normally have during a regular day at SeaWorld.  Here are some of these experiences.

Orca Encounter at Night

Seeing killer whales at night is amazing during the Electric Ocean event at SeaWorld theme park in Orlando, Florida

There’s something really magical about an Orca Encounter at night.  The stadium looks really beautiful at night.  And these amazing animals look so beautiful against the gorgeous night sky.  This is something you can experience at Electric Ocean that you can’t get when you visit on a day when the park closes at an earlier time.

Rescue Tails: Night Vision

See nocturnal animals like owls at SeaWorld Orlando's Electric Ocean's Rescue Tails: Night Vision

Rescue Tails is a fun and educational presentation.  I went last year during Electric Ocean and love it.  You get to see a lot of amazing rescued animals.

This year, you can still enjoy Rescue Tails during the day.  But after the sun goes down, you can enjoy a second different show.  It is called Rescue Tails: Night Vision.  This is a lot like Rescue Tails, but the animals you meet in this presentation are different.  You’ll get to meet some awesome nocturnal exotic animals.  This includes birds of prey, raccoons, opossum, and more.

Club Electric Current

Enjoy a dance party with stilt walkers, a DJ, and dancers at SeaWorld Orlando's summertime Electric Ocean event

Each evening, The Waterfront comes alive with Club Electric Current.  You can enjoy a dance party that is suitable for all ages.  You can dance along with the DJ, stilt walkers, and dancers.

Club Sea Glow

SeaWorld theme park in Orlando, Florida has a great nighttime event, Electric Ocean, with a DJ and dance party at night

The party gets started even more once the sun goes down.  Because that is when Bayside Stadium is transformed into a dance party.  A DJ will mix dance tunes leading up to the firework show I mentioned before.  Dancers and high-energy performance acts help lead the excitement at Club Sea Glow.

Chick-fil-A Beach Clean Up

Cleaning the beaches is important.  And kids can learn this and have some fun at the Chick-fil-A Beach Clean Up experience.  It takes place in the Key West section of SeaWorld.  This experience means you can:

  • Help clean the beach
  • Find buried items
  • Make beautiful art on the Chick-fil-A Beach Clean-Up Mural

Elmo Rocks

And finally, Elmo needs to get into the Electric Ocean action, too, right?  And he has a new show at Nautilus Theater during Electric Ocean!

The plotline of this show is that Elmo and the gang’s favorite band canceled their appearance.  But that won’t let them stop them from enjoying some great music.  Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Cookie Monster, Zoe, Bert, and Ernie decide to form their rock ‘n’ roll band!  They’ll go through the process of auditions and rehearsals.  And the audience is invited to participate too in this fun performance!

Are There Any Special Food & Drinks?

Frequent visitors of SeaWorld Orlando like my family know that SeaWorld Orlando has a lot of great festivals.  These festivals typically serve great foods and drinks, and not just the popular Seven Seas Food Festival or Craft Beer Festival.
