SeaWorld San Diego
One-of-a-Kind Evening Spectacular Amazes with Eight Electrifying Experiences
SeaWorld San Diego’s new nighttime festival —Electric Ocean—transforms the park this summer into a sea of glowing color and energy, inspired by the bioluminescence of the ocean. Electric Ocean ignites at SeaWorld through Sept. 4, 2017.
When the sun goes down, the park comes alive with a celebration of illumination, featuring vibrant night shows with exhilarating performances. Immersed in exotic worlds of light, music and incomparable special effects, guests can experience their favorite SeaWorld rides and attractions in a whole new way—lit by the ocean glow.
“Electric Ocean is an example of how we’re integrating emerging technologies to enhance and energize the guest experience,” said Rick Schuiteman, SeaWorld San Diego’s vice president of entertainment. “Lasers and lights will create a fantastical simulated underwater experience, inspired by the sea with ‘bioluminescent’ animals floating through the sky. This unique nighttime event transforms the park into a canvas painted with light. It’s a reinvention of what a nighttime experience in a theme park can be.”
There’s marine life at every turn and distinctive entertainment throughout the park, including gigantic glowing schools of fish that immerse guests in an underwater world. SeaWorld guests can be a part of the show with special reactive shark tooth necklaces and bubble wands that can change color for a more personalized experience and feel even more deeply submerged in the festivities.
“This is a unique opportunity to showcase a part of the ocean that few people ever see—the bioluminescent glow after dark. For Electric Ocean, we were only limited by what we could imagine,” said Brian Morrow, SeaWorld vice president of theme park experience and design.
