Tonight we're at SeaWorld Orlando for the Christmas Celebration!
First stop is to visit Rudolph's Christmastown.
Rudolph and Clarice are great and all... but the line is long and I want to meet Bumble!
Yes! I got a Bumble hug! Love this new addition to SeaWorld Christmas this year!
The Rudolph and friends area for the SeaWorld Christmas Celebration is super cute.
Now on to the food and drinks! I highly recommend the sampler packages, if you want to try a little bit of everything!
They have an awesome selection of beer! I can't get everything tonight so I'm pretty sure I'll be getting a sampler next time too
There is a good amount of food offered for the celebration SeaWorld. I opted for the poutine and why not, more beer.
You can enjoy the Sea of Trees and holiday entertainment next to the fire @SeaWorld Christmas Celebration.
Dessert time! The popular s'mores are back, this time in a cone. Messy, but delicious!
If ice skating shows are your thing, Winter Wonderland on Ice is one of the best around!
Santa, sandwiches and drinks? The Terrace has what you want!
Didn't catch O Wondrous Night tonight but have in the past, and it's an excellent, original show.
Walk on night rides for Mako, amazing! And it's in the 50s tonight in Orlando, makes for a great ride!
The Christmas lights along the Waterfront area are simply beautiful.
The holiday village with all of the food, drinks, shopping and entertainment is always my favorite part of SeaWorld at Christmas.
We'll close out the night with Shamu Christmas Miracles.
Shamu is cool but the star of Shamu Christmas Miracles is the gospel singer and sax player.
Snowflakes on the waterfront as we head out of the park.
Christmas Celebration at SeaWorld Orlando runs weekends in Dec. We'll be back here tomorrow morning for the Reindeer Run 5k!
Good morning! We are back at SeaWorld for the Reindeer Run 5k!
Around 4000 runners are ready to run a 5k through SeaWorld for the annual Reindeer Run!
Congrats to all who participated in the Reindeer Run SeaWorld ! We had a blast!
Today is National Roller Coaster Day and we were invited to take part in the Coaster Crusade at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay and Sea World Orlando.
Follow along with Steve all day as he takes on the coasters of these amazing parks.
HOWL-O-SCREAM PUTS ON AN “EVIL ENCORE” IN 2016
Tampa, Fla. (Aug. 9, 2016) – Mr. Karver put his heart and soul into his dolls. After the authorities came to close him down, Karver locked himself in his “Hall Of Dolls” and burned it to the ground. Now, the dummies are back and they insist the show must go on. It’s the encore no one asked for, and it’s about to bring down the house, forever. It’s the Evil Encore everyone is dying to see.
This fall, for 21 select nights, no soul is safe from the Evil Encore at Howl-O-Scream 2016. Tampa Bay’s premier Halloween event returns with tormenting surprises and unexpected frights around every corner, two brand-new haunted houses and a bone-chilling storyline starring a disturbing cast of demon dolls.
Howl-O-Scream 2016 returns with seven haunted houses, two of which are new and creeper than ever:
NEW! Motel Hell
Nightmares become reality at this deserted motel once you realize why it’s conveniently vacant. The paranormal presence of its former owners still lurks on the untouched property, mysteriously preventing the brave souls who are attempting to tear it down. Guests who dare to enter will find themselves face-to-face with their worst nightmares and inescapable fate.
NEW! The Black Spot
When Saw Tooth Silas, an infamous pirate, decides that one should no longer exist, he marks them for death. Victims are then sent to The Black Spot, where they meet their horrifying demise. The trick lies within the dimly-lit corners of the mysterious hideaway, holding the secret to escape… or demise.
Howl-O-Scream’s roaming hordes have heard the cries loud and clear. The infamous mobs are back and bigger than ever:
NEW! Inescapable Roaming Hordes
Throughout the park and in between haunted houses, every corner will be deemed unsafe. This year, roaming hordes are infesting Howl-O-Scream at an unstoppable rate as the infamous scare squads return bigger and more horrifying than ever. From their screeching welcome at the front gates to the eerie traps in the depths of the park, no corner is safe from these merciless roaming hordes.
Guests can test their limits while braving thrill rides in the dark, including Cobra’s Curse, Busch Gardens’ new one-of-a-kind spin coaster. Plus, challenge North America’s tallest freestanding drop tower Falcon’s Fury®, Florida’s first and only triple-launch coaster Cheetah Hunt® and others.
Freaky Preview returns this year and will open Howl-O-Scream 2016 on Friday, Sept. 23 and Saturday, Sept. 24. The event then runs select nights from Sept. 29 through Oct. 30. Operating event hours are 7:30 p.m. to 1 a.m.
This year, 4-Pack Ticket Deals start at $35.99 per person, plus tax. Reduced advance-purchase rates are available online, and special offers are available for Busch Gardens Pass Members. Additionally, out-of-towners can take advantage of great vacations packages, like the Overnight Fright or Wild & Wicked Weekends packages. For more information, visit HowlOScream.com.
Howl-O-Scream 2016 is a separately-ticketed night event. No costumes are allowed. For guest information, visit HowlOScream.com or call 1-888-800-5447.
