It’s all about fun when Sesame Street friends show up

Kids of all ages can dance along with their Sesame Street pals during the “Sesame Street Party Parade,” with its 10 colorful floats and characters such as Big Bird, Bert and Ernie, and Abby Cadabby. Join them as they make stops for a round of hula hooping, jumping rope, and dancing to the parade’s high energy music.

The “Elmo Rocks” show also makes a comeback at the SeaStar Theater, where Elmo is on a mission to put on the greatest rock concert ever, with the help of his friends. Dance along as Elmo, Zoe, Cookie Monster, Abby Cadabby, Bert, and Ernie take part in auditions and rehearsals on their way to becoming “The Rockin’ Elmo Band.”

Electric Ocean’s flippered and furry friends are back in an all-new show

New for 2022 is the “Sea Lion and Otter Spotlight” at Pacific Point Preserve. Here, Dr. Pinniped presents a series of educational and humorous “lessons” about the species and the roles they play in the world’s ecosystems.

Other presentations include “Orca Encounter” and “Ocean Discovery,” in which orca whales, beluga whales, and Pacific white-sided dolphins are the stars.

Extreme waterski stunt show defies gravity

“HydroPower: Xtreme FX” high-energy waterski spectacular brings the thrill of extreme water stunts to SeaWorld’s Bayside Stadium amid pyrotechnics, laser lights, and special effects, backed by a jammin’ live rock band. HydroPower: Xtreme FX Fireworks Finale is the finishing flourish that ends each day of the Electric Ocean event.

Adding to the “electric” fun is the Giant Light Bright wall, located near the games center, that will ignite guests’ creativity in a throwback to childhood.

SeaWorld San Antonio’s roller coasters and attractions – including Texas Stingray, Wave Breaker: The Rescue Coaster simulator, Great White, and the new Tidal Surge – are also open, allowing guests to ride late into the night during Electric Ocean.
