SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment donated $20,000 to help fund the Harbor House
SeaWorld Parks were voted by BehindtheThrills.com readers as having the “Friendliest Theme Park Crowds.” The parks’ peaceful, relaxing environment and lack of constant crushing crowds creates a calmer more relaxing experience for park guests.
Top parks throughout the United States were included in the online pole, making for fierce competition. However, with 56% of the votes, SeaWorld easily walked away with the top honor. The runner up only received 11% of the votes.
To celebrate Air Force Week, SeaWorld will honor the men and women of the United States Air Force today, Wednesday, October 27.
Highlights include performances by the Air Force jazz band, appearances by the Patrick Air Force Base Honor Guard, and a heart-pounding F-16 fly over Shamu Stadium before the first show at 12:30 p.m.
And before each show at Shamu Stadium -- 12:30 and 5:30 p.m. -- there also will be a special Hero Salute featuring hometown heroes, the Patrick Air Force Base Honor Guard and a rousing version of the National Anthem.
According to AAA, more than 31 million Americans are expected to travel Memorial Day Weekend. And many are headed to Central Florida. With that in mind, it's only fitting to share some basic travel tips to make the most of your vacation.

SUMMER AT SEAWORLD ROCKS ... DAY OR NIGHT
Starting this Saturday and to kick off the summer, SeaWorld invites guests to stay for the encore as the parks are open later and feature special nighttime (and daytime) shows, live music and spectacular fireworks. Whether day or night, SeaWorld is the place to be this summer for a one-of-a-kind experience. Special nighttime shows at all three SeaWorld Parks -- Orlando, San Diego and San Antonio -- include:
Today in memory of Dawn we are doing a tribute to her before the first Believe show at each of our three SeaWorld parks. This has been an extremely difficult time for the entire Shamu family. We believe that Dawn would want our work with these whales, that she loved so much, to continue. So with that in mind, we dedicate our shows this weekend to our dear friend.
