Spring into Night at SeaWorld San Antonio

Every Saturday through May 12th, SeaWorld San Antonio will be celebrating “Spring into Night,” a special event that features extended hours and special sneak peaks of this summer’s marine talent. You’ll see the famous killer whale Shamu during Shamu Rocks, enjoy the comedic antics of Sea Lions Tonite, and see Azul, which presents the beautiful beluga whales and their Pacific white-sided dolphin counterparts.

During Shamu Rocks, everybody’s favorite killer whale performs for his fans during the night. With live, blazing rock tunes, state-of-the-art special effects, and Shamu’s best tricks, this nighttime show is sure to enthrall you.

Sea Lions Tonite, gives a different tone to the evening, as the comedy team Clyde & Seamore give their take on politics, pop culture, and even the acts of other animals around SeaWorld.

Azul changes the tone yet again, providing an almost spiritual experience. The two, gorgeous beluga whales’ white flesh is clearly visible in the dark night as they swim side by side in what has been described as a “magical partnership.” There are also exotic white-sided dolphins, colorful birds and acrobatic performers that combine to create a celebration of the natural and mysterious beauty of the world’s creatures.

Visit SeaWorld during its regular hours and check out some activities. See the dolphins at Dolphin Cove, the sea lions at Rocky Point Preserve, the sharks at Coral Reef, penguins at Penguin Encounter and the alligators at Alligator Alley. To cool off, ride the splashing Journey to Atlantis coaster, or the Rio Loco, then dry off on the Steel Eel and Great White.

Make a weekend of these excellent SeaWorld attractions and stay at one of the lodgings within a mile of the park, including the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa or the JW Mariott San Antonio Hill Country & Spa.

  1. The show Shamu Rocks sounds like so much fun! Performing at night makes it even more interesting with the special lighting effects and music!

  2. Can’t wait to see SeaWorld! Shamu has got to be the hardest working whale in show biz. He’s been at it for quite a while now. But from what I hear he’s still in top form.

  3. I’ve been to SeaWorld Orlando, but not for the Spring into Night event. I’d love to hop on the coasters and soar down the tracks after dark. Though, the night air might be a little too chilly to get splashed by Shamu…

  4. It’s the 60ish mom here to say I,too, had a ball as part of the SeaWorld threesome. The multi-generational trip truly did have stomehing for everyone of us enough rides to make it interesting sitting in the front seat of the Atlantis boat ride was a great way for me to cool off (and show my daughter and grand-daughter that one is never too old for a roller coaster) and the adjoining SeaWorld aquarium was a nice place for gram and her grand to wait while mom evaluated Atlantis for her readers, we both enjoyed the see through floor that allowed up close looks at the sting ray and other swimming sea creatures lots of places to sit out of the sun either on benches under the trees or in the seats at one of the fun shows that managed to work in some educational tidbits and gently reminding everyone about the beauty and wonders found in our oceans. Lots to see and enjoy and we ran out of time before we ran out of things to see and do. I would certainly have no qualms about recommending SeaWorld as a grand place to visit and share in the making of some wonderful memories. The Hilton makes it super easy with their free shuttle bus service to SeaWorld so no parking worries for anyone a big plus for us. (And while we didn’t get there, there were signs indicating Legoland is just a short drive away and would make a good second day visit for an extended weekend.)
