It’s all about the kids this January as SeaWorld Orlando brings back the kid-centric event, Just For Kids Festival beginning 12 and running every Saturday through February 2. The second annual festival will feature kid-sized fun like live shows, rides, fun zones, free concerts and of course plenty of adorable aquatic animals to play with all day long.
The fun starts with this year’s fun zones including:
Elmo Rocks! – This new fun zone will have kids rocking and rolling with Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Cookie Monster, Zoe, Bert and Ernie as they form their own rock n’ roll band and give a concert. Kids will be able to help sing and dance as the Sesame Street gang performs their hit songs! Elmo Rocks! is located at Seafire Inn.
Shamu’s Party Zone – The name says it all! Shamu’s Party Zone is all about partying kid-style! Kids will be able to dance along to a family-friendly DJ, enjoy character appearances, games and much more party fun. Shamu’s Party Zone is located near the Lakeside Patio.
Shamu’s Happy Harbor – It’s not called Happy Harbor for nothing! At this unique play area, kids can take a sea-fearing adventure on such rides as Jazzy Jellies, Net Climb, Ocean Commotion, Sea Carousel, Shamu Express, Swishy Fishies, The Flying Fiddler and more.
Kids can even become a Junior Animal Ambassador during the Ocean Adventure program. All the kids have to do is visit SeaWorld Orlando’s four Sea Star locations in the park where you’ll enjoy exciting educational activities. While you’re at each location, make sure you collect a stamp and a limited edition Just for Kids Explorer’s. If you collect all four cards and stamps, you will receive a prize!
But perhaps the most exciting part about SeaWorld’s Just For Kids Festival is the free concerts performed every Saturday during the festival at the Nautilus Theater. Kids will be able to hear their favorite groups performing live onstage including Imagination Movers on Jan. 12, Laurie Berknew – Solo! on Jan. 19, Choo Choo Soul with Genevieve on Jan. 26 and Kratt Brothers Live featuring the stars of Wild Kratts on Feb. 2. Show times are at 11 a.m., 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. Seating is limited at Nautilus Theatre so make sure you get there early if you want a seat!
