Clyde and Seamore Go to School with Sea Lion High at SeaWorld Orlando


SeaWorld Orlando premiered their new animal show Clyde and Seamore’s Sea Lion High on Thursday, April 16, 2015, and it was a big hit with those in attendance.

The show started with a pre-show example of training the sea lions to do certain behaviors. They explained that the sea lions can get up to 650 pounds, so the first thing they do is establish a relationship between the trainer and the animal. Then they can begin to train the animal based upon the trust in that relationship.

Also prior to the show, the audience is taught the Sea Lion High fight song, complete with lyrics on the screen. Don’t forget to buy your foam fingers and cheerleader poms before you come to school.

Then the show starts, and it’s a perfect showcase for the animals. The storyline is it’s graduation day at Sea Lion High, but we discover that Clyde and Seamore haven’t completed all the classes they need to graduate. Until they do, they’re not eligible for scholarships to go to Ocean University.

Clyde has to retake science and dance, while Seamore has to retake gym, drama, and dance. It was a creative way to keep the action continuous on stage while giving each animal breaks from the action. They also have lunch together, though one of them was definitely getting the best of the Lunch Lady.

Towards the end there is a huge crisis, and Clyde and Seamore have to apply what they’ve learned to save the day.Read More »Clyde and Seamore Go to School with Sea Lion High at SeaWorld Orlando

Bands, Brew, & BBQ Festival Kicks off at SeaWorld Orlando tomorrow


One of the best theme park festivals in Orlando is SeaWorld’s Bands, Brew & BBQ. Three things that go remarkably well together. The event brings big talent to the stage, and accomplished BBQ joints to the food pavilion. Plus you’ll get to sample a wide selection of beers from our nation’s best brewers.

The festival is scheduled weekends throughout March (7-8, 14-15, 21-22 and 28-29), and Bands, Brew & BBQ is included with regular park admission. I look forward to this event every year.

A few years ago, protestors mis-informed by the one-sided documentary Blackfish, caused some of the music acts to cancel their appearances. Since then SeaWorld has only been releasing the names of each act a few weeks ahead of the weekend. So far we know who will be performing the first two weekends. It’s an amazing lineup.


Scheduled performances now include:

Saturday, March 7: Toby Keith
Sunday, March 8: Lynyrd Skynyrd
Saturday, March 14: Rodney Atkins
Sunday, March 15: Kool & the Gang

Event festivities begin at 11:30 a.m. each weekend, with concerts at 4 p.m.Read More »Bands, Brew, & BBQ Festival Kicks off at SeaWorld Orlando tomorrow
