Park of the Week: SeaWorld San Diego

Electric Ocean Returns With New Shows at SeaWorld San Diego

June 2, 2022, 7:18 PM · SeaWorld San Diego is adding new shows for the return of its Electric Ocean summertime event, which begins this weekend.

New this summer will be Adrenaline!, an extreme stunt show set to music in the Nautilus Amphitheater. The show stars Annaliese Nock ["America’s Got Talent"], who holds a world record for the most somersaults on a Wheel of Death in one minute, according to SeaWorld's press release. Other stunt performers and musicians will feature in the cast of this daredevil show.

Also new this year is ElectroBlast, a "bioluminescent percussion show that creates a sensory electronic rhythmic dance atmosphere." (Sounds like something for EDC fans?) You will find ElectroBlast in Mission Bay Theater.

For a more traditional concert experience, head to SeaWorld San Diego's Bayside Amphitheater, which this summer will feature a to-be-announced line-up of acts in its Saturday-night Summertime Concert Series.

Returning to Electric Ocean will be Club Sea Glow - a DJ-led dance party, the Sea of Life illuminated fish sculptures on Dolphin Hill, the iconic Light Tunnel, the Laser Reef Light Show, and the Ignite Fireworks show.

Electric Ocean is included with SeaWorld San Diego park admission, with speciality food and drinks available for sale. Electric Ocean starts June 4 and runs Saturday and Sundays through June 19, when it begins its nightly run through August 14. The Ignite Fireworks do not run on Mondays through Thursdays, though there will be a special Independence Day fireworks show on Monday, July 4.

We were really impressed with Electric Ocean on our most recent visit to this park in July 2019. Sea World seems to have jumped on the AGT bandwagon with former acts booked to perform at BGW and BGT as well this summer. Cedar Fair used to book a lot of AGT acts before the pandemic, so I wonder if their parks are abandoning summer stunt shows or if they're still searching for talent with so many AGT acts already booked for Sea World parks.

Same here, I was also there in July 2019 and thought the Electric Ocean was fantastic.
