SeaWorld Orlando will be kicking off the 2014 addition of their annual Just For Kids event this Saturday. The event is in it’s third year, and is back with an all new look, and more educationally fun activities than ever.
This year, unlike in the past, there are no concerts from artists aimed at the younger set. Instead guests will have a ton of all new events and activities aimed at not only being fun, but making kids aware of the animals and wildlife around them.
Here’s the line up:
ALL-NEW! Rockin’ Rockhopper Party
Starting at 11 a.m., families can experience warm-hearted whimsical fun and make lasting memories as they dance along to family-friendly DJ’s at the Rockin’ Rock Hopper Party in Antarctica – Empire of The Penguin®, play games, such as Rock Hopper Ring Toss and Penguin Plunge, enjoy live penguin appearances, snow moments, snacks, face painting, caricatures and meet the one and only Puck, star of Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin.
ALL-NEW! SEA Garden
Share the wonder of close-up encounters with amazing animal friends and learn how we care for our natural world at our all-new SEA Garden.
Shamu Dance Party
Dance the night away with Shamu & crew at the Shamu Dance Party at the Village Square located at the front of the park. The party begins one hour prior to park closing with a stilt walker emcee who fills the square with music that the whole family can dance to, including popular line dancing songs and party favorites. The Shamu Dance Party continues until 30 minutes after park closing.
Ocean Adventures Kids Program
Kids can go on an educational, card collecting program, also included with admission, starting at 11 a.m. Children will look for the Sea Star icons inside the park, where they’ll discover fun, educational activities. At each location they will collect a stamp and a limited edition Explorer’s card. Once they visit all four locations, they’ll receive a coupon to redeem at select gift shops for a special SeaWorld prize. Limit one prize per participating child.
The Just For Kids fun is included with SeaWorld admission, and helps to kick off SeaWorld’s 50th anniversary celebration. What will you find when you dive into a Sea of Surprises?
