SeaWorld Making a Splash in 2021!

The aquatic theme park SeaWorld has had many highs in the beginning half of 2021. COVID-19 regulations haven’t slowed the powerhouse down, as the company has seen a significant increase in revenue and decline in loss, even though attendance numbers are still dipping due to capacity restrictions. They anticipate that number rising as they head into the summer, with the new CDC guidelines being adopted at the Orlando and San Antonio parks. SeaWorld Orlando and San Antonio are lifting the mask requirements for patrons who have been fully vaccinated both outdoors AND indoors, taking it a step further than fellow Florida theme parks Universal Orlando and Walt Disney World.

There are plenty of exciting events coming to the parks this summer too, all sure to be fun for the whole family. The popular Electric Ocean event returns to the parks every weekend from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Guests can enjoy familiar attractions as well as several new features and dining, and the extended park hours will end with a spectacular fireworks show! At SeaWorld San Diego, families can enjoy Sesame Street themed weekends or Brunch with Elmo every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from mid-May through June 6.

Known for their rescues and rehabilitation of stranded or injured sea animals, SeaWorld has rescued over 500 creatures so far this year. Of those rescues, several were released back into the wild this year. Chessie the manatee in Orlando was returned to his habitat following treatment for severe pneumonia at the beginning of May. A loggerhead turtle Yosemite was released in Australia, after having been found with a hook in its jaw. Yet another loggerhead turtle, rescued off the coast of Oregon, was transferred to the San Diego park while Orlando welcomed Nunavik, a beluga whale, from Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta.
