SeaWorld’s New Openings Offer an Electric Summer of Fun

See what's new for summer 2017 at SeaWorld Orlando.

It's nearly impossible to run out of new things to do in Orlando during the summer, and there's definitely something new in the water at SeaWorld Orlando. The park's newly opened virtual reality (VR) rollercoaster, Kraken Unleashed, brings unique underwater thrills, while Bubble Master Fan Yang's magical display is sure to captivate audiences both big and small. And if you're in the mood for some after-hours fun, the park's nighttime extravaganza, Electric Ocean, may just be the hottest party of the summer. You won't want to miss this!

Real Heart Pounding Fun on a Virtual Reality Rollercoaster

If you've visited SeaWorld in the past, you may be familiar with the Kraken rollercoaster, but — we guarantee — you've never seen it like this! Now known as Kraken Unleashed, the new VR ride takes you to the deepest corners of the ocean in a unique, submerging experience.

Strap in and strap on your VR goggles to explore the famous lost city of Atlantis and face some of its deadliest sea monsters, including the kraken — a giant squid. If you're not in the mood for a virtual thrill ride, don't worry: You can still enjoy the adrenaline of the rollercoaster without the VR goggles.

Pop! Goes the Bubble Master

You can also catch the mesmerizing talents of Bubble Master Fan Yang as he combines art, science and entertainment into this eye-popping show. Inspired by the ocean and its marine life, this magical display includes bubble tricks, massive bubbles (up to 156 feet in length), a kaleidoscope of colorful lights and interactive fun with the audience. This memorable show will definitely captivate audiences of all ages!

Go With the Glow at Electric Ocean

When the sun goes down, the night comes to life at SeaWorld's new Electric Ocean spectacular. Don a handful of glowsticks and dance the night away among luminescent sea creatures, DJ entertainment and a dazzling display of fountains, pyrotechnics and fireworks. With the return of celebrated shows Sea Lion Tonite and Shamu's Celebration: Light Up the Night, summer nights at SeaWorld have never been brighter.

Bonus: A Sneak Peek of What's Next at SeaWorld

The line-up of amazing rides in Orlando grows every year, and 2018 is shaping up to be no exception. At SeaWorld Orlando, a brand new, water-raft ride called Infinity Falls is in the works for next summer. Inspired by the waterfalls and rapid rivers of the South American rainforest, Infinity Falls will feature the world's tallest river rapid drop at 40 feet, and include tons of watery twists and turns through a lush jungle environment. The ride will also be the centerpiece of a newly themed surrounding area, fully immersing you in a rainforest canopy.
