SeaWorld Update: Getting Ready for Electric Ocean (PARTS 1 & 2)

Guests planning on visiting SeaWorld Orlando this summer will be able to enjoy plenty of new offerings. As an example, the reimagined Kraken roller coaster will officially debut in just a few days, featuring VR headsets, creating an entirely new visual experience that solidifies the backstory of this already thrilling attraction. But that’s not all! A refurbished Dolphin Nursery, new nighttime experiences, a waterfront bar, a new bubble show, and much more await park Guests later this year!
The SeaWorld sign located at the entrance of the park has been updated to advertise Electric Ocean:
