Theme parks. Holidays. Family. They all make me happy. It’s true.
I had seen every other park at Christmas for the holidays except for SeaWorld. That is not the case anymore!!
I’m sooo glad I made this comment on Twitter because, volia! Tickets appeared! So this past Saturday, my parents, Jeff and I spent the day walking around and looking at all the fantastic lights and shows.
We took a million pictures in front of the tree and the HUGE snowman.
Then we hit up Manta. It was the first time my dad had ever done it. And my mom…well…she held everything. From the sound of my dad screaming “THIS IS AWESOME!”, I’m pretty sure he liked it. A lot.
We stood around watching penguins for quite a while. They are funny little things, without even trying. Their waddling makes me laugh. And then when they dive into the water, even better!
Since we were still waiting for the lights to come on and the holiday shows to start, we stopped in to see the seals, Kraken, Shark Encounter, A’lure and rode the Polar Express. All were delightful!
After downing a hot chocolate and bundling up, we headed over to see Clyde and Seamore’s Countdown to Christmas. I love the silly humor of this show normally and the Christmas version wasn’t a let down. So funny! And the I-4 joke… AWESOME!
We then high tailed it back to the other side of the park to see the Sea of Trees. Phenomenal!
After a refill on the hot chocolate, we got our seats for Shamu Christmas – Miracles. And what a miracle it was.
SeaWorld provided Christmas carols to be sung. Boy did my parents take advantage of this (see the video for the true fun that was had! *video coming soon*)
After a few songs.. the show started!!
I found this guy hanging out by the elf workshop – I hope he was telling them what to bring me!
Merry Christmas from SeaWorld and myself! You should definitely go check out this celebration!! You’ll thank yourself! I don’t know what kept me from this event for so long! You have until January 2nd, 2011 to see this fantastic display of lights and Christmas shows.
Thanks again to SeaWorld for the tickets!
