This summer is going to be really special at SeaWorld theme park in Orlando, Florida.  First of all, SeaWorld has a brand-new roller coaster!  Yes, Pipeline: The Surf Coaster is debuting this summer, so if you’ve never ridden it before, you’re going to want to head to the park for that.

Then, of course, you already have the reasons you loved SeaWorld before.  They already had other great roller coasters.  And then of course my favorite reason to visit, which is the animals.

But SeaWorld’s not done.  They are giving you another great reason to head to the park this summer.  And that is their brand new Summer Spectacular event!  It’s running now through September 4, 2023.

I want to tell you about all the fun entertainment and festivities at this event.  And then I’ll tell you how to save money on your ticket!

Ignite Fireworks

What’s a good summer celebration without fireworks, right?  And SeaWorld Orlando has a great fireworks show planned this summer!  The fireworks can be seen from all around the central lake at SeaWorld.  This includes Bayside Stadium, The Waterfront, and the Orca Encounter Pathway.

Private Viewing Happy Hour

Even though you can see fireworks from all over the park, you might wnat a more intimate setting.  If that is the case and you are there on a Saturday, consider booking the Private Viewing Happy Hour.  You can enjoy the fireworks from a private waterfront patio.  You’ll get to enjoy specialty cocktails and Mediterranean-inspired food, too.  You can book the private viewing happy hour here.

Surf Holiday

Pipeline: The Surf Coaster isn’t the only surf-themed attraction coming to SeaWorld this summer.  A brand new show is also coming called Surf Holiday.  It takes place at Nautilus Theater.  It is a live stage show with singing, dancing, and the story of preservation and conservation to help preserve our beautiful ocean.

Club SeaGlow

Summer days are fun at SeaWorld Orlando, but summer nights are really when the party gets going – and not just because of the fireworks.  But that’s when you can visit Club SeaGlow at Bayside Stadium.  A DJ will be there mixing dance music all evening leading up to the start of the nighttime fireworks show. There are also dancers and high-energy atmospheric acts there.  And there’s plenty of space for you to spread and dance yourself.  Also, here’s a tip: Bayside Stadium is a really good place to see the fireworks.

Pearl Divers

The pearl divers are back!  This is exciting, especially if you’ve never seen a pearl diver live before.  They’ll pick the perfect Akoya oyster for you for your perfect souvenir.  This takes place starting at noon at the lagoon next to Oyster’s Secret.

Summer Spectacular Concert Series

They’ll be concerts at Nautilus Theater on Saturdays and Sundays starting July 8th through August 6th.  We’ll keep you updated when we learn the line-up.


If you’re like me and you loved the SeaWorld Seven Seas Food & Wine Festival and didn’t want to end, don’t worry!  There are still food and drink stations throughout the park, but themed to the Summer Spectacular!
