Just For Kids at SeaWorld Orlando

Families can sing, dance and play the day away every Saturday at SeaWorld Orlando’s Just For Kids Festival starting Saturday.

This kid-centric festival brings families together to enjoy fun rides, adorable animals and an all-new party zone. Just For Kids is included with park admission and takes place Saturdays from March 22 to April 12, 2014.

At Just For Kids, families can dance along to DJs at the new Rockin’ Rockhopper 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 Puck, star of Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin.

Get up close with animal friends in the Sea Garden and meet some of their children’s favorite television stars. Here kids can experience the wonder of close-up encounters with animals and learn how SeaWorld cares for the natural world.

Kids can go on an educational treasure hunt as they look for the Sea Star icons throughout the park where they’ll discover fun, educational activities. At each location they will collect a stamp and a limited edition Explorer’s card. After visiting all four locations, they’ll receive a coupon to redeem for a special SeaWorld prize at select gift shops.

End the night with Shamu and his friends 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 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. Visit SeaWorldOrlando.com for complete details.

During Just For Kids, SeaWorld’s year-long 50th Celebration will be in full swing. Park pathways will come to life with oceans of spontaneous entertainment. Guests will enjoy a Sea of Surprises featuring new interactive experiences and shows, even more up-close animal encounters and the SeaWorld “Surprise Squad” treating park guests with prizes and special experiences every day.

My children and grandchildren would NEVER support Seaworld, there are so many other places to visit, that don’t teach children that the suffering of animals in captivity is OK so selfish people can be entertained. Seaworld is like a pimp, marketing their wares to innocent children. No, all my friends and families will NOT be supporting Seaworld. Not now..not ever.

My children and I love it there. There is no signs of abuse and it’s a great park with so many fun things to do there. It’s too bad that your grandchildren will never get to experience all Sea world has to offer!
