Thanks for this update. Super stoked to check this out in a few weeks!


If they're anything like the hush puppies at the BGW Food & Wine Festival, they're very tasty.


Does that happen on March 23, 2019? That’s when I am going and bacon cheddar hush puppies sound very appetizing.


Sorry--doesn't start until May.

And they are.


Actually looks like it IS going on now, and March 23rd is one of the dates! Here's the landing page for the event, which says it's on Fridays, Saturdays, & Sundays between February 9th & May 5th.

And yes, I had those bacon cheddar hush puppies at BGW last year as well, and oh my god they are amazingly effing good. I'm going to be heading down to Orlando at the very end of this month, and knowing this information now, I'm pretty sure I'll be making SeaWorld my Friday stop. :)

Everything at Seven Seas looks fantastic. More parks need to do food festivals like this.

Hey all. It has been awhile since I have posted photos from a Sea World visit. I believe that it had been about a year. I was able to visit the park a few weeks ago and it was by chance that the brand new Sesame Street area had just opened. This visit also marked my first experience with the new river rapids ride, Infinity Falls. I really liked Infinity Falls and was pleasantly surprised how long the ride was. I have a few notes to share with you. The ride/ride area does not open with the park. It opened an hour after the park opening. I highly recommend that you get to the ride early as the queue can get really busy later in the day. Also, make sure that you do rent a fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo to put your valuables in. Everyone in the boat gets really soaked. I admit that I wore flip flops and a poncho to help from getting totally soaked. The new Sesame Street area was quite nice and I am pretty sure families will really enjoy it.

Anyways, I do have a few photos to share with you.

Good morning Manta! Manta was my first coaster ride of 2019.

I had been really looking forward to riding this. This is a great, though soaking, new ride at Sea World.

Apparently it is the tallest drop on a rapids ride.

You can spent a lot of money on these evil spray jets.

There is also a screen that keeps a record of all the recent created monsters.

Oh how awesome! That's some pretty great Sesame Street theming, way more than I expected.

But I'm a bit disturbed by "Bearspray." I don't think I want any spray from a bear.

Or is that "Bears Pray"?

Free Beer Is Back This Summer at SeaWorld Orlando!

The company announced the fan-favorite promotion will return in June during Tuesday’s earnings call during which it reported that SeaWorld parks’ attendance and revenue rose for the fifth straight quarter.

Orlando-based SeaWorld Entertainment’s attendance jumped by nearly 4 percent -- or by about 100,000 people -- to about 3.3 million guests for the first quarter while the company operated at a $37 million net loss, an improvement from the same time last year when the loss reached $63 million. Total revenues increased 2 percent to nearly $221 million.

SeaWorld did not say when in June the free beer would begin or if it would be the same two-per-customer, 7-ounce pours as last year...

It appears that SeaWorld Orlando have teased us with a new roller coaster today! What do you think this could be?
