IPW 2015 - Orlando Day 4 - SeaWorld Evening Event


On the way in the coach to the SeaWorld event it started to pour down.



As we got off the bus they handed us the blue SeaWorld ponchos. Much needed but it meant that no one recognised anyone else. I ended up spending the whole evening on my own as I couldn't see anyone I knew.



It was such a shame for SeaWorld as they had put so much effort into bringing in plush seating areas that were now covered up.



The sea of blue. Anyone recognise anyone? No me neither



One thing that made the evening though was the food. A spectacular array of different food in themed lands around the park.


















The food was superb and I felt the need to sample as many dishes as I could



They had some novel ideas for serving. This station rotated the trays and you grabbed what you wanted.






The bar in Antarctica was made of real ice and lit from below.



Plenty of drink on offer. Actually I spent so long taking photos and eating that I forgot completely to grab a drink.



Some more photos of the food available.



The bar areas were setup everywhere. You could not fault the staff. They were out in the rain serving and cleaning.









Everyone tucking into the food and still having fun.






The nice seating areas weren't really used as it was so wet.






I did manage to get on Kraken. In the front row as it just stopped raining for a bit. When we got the the top of the first hill the sky lit up with forks of lightening everywhere. We then spent the whole ride with a spectacular light show.

Needless to say we were the last ones on for a while.





















I managed to watch Blue Horizons but they has to stop the show at the high wire part because again the lightening was relentless.



Then on to the new Clyde and Seymour show.



Sea Lion High is a great improvement over the pirate show.



A walk through the shark tank to get to Shamu stadium for the finale.



The stadium welcomed the IPW guests.



I had never seen One Ocean at night. It was more atmospheric with the lighting.






A firework finale to the evening.



With 300 local school kids brought in to celebrate, waving flags.



It was another great evening if a little wet. OK I was completely soaked and completely shattered. But everyone took it in their stride and especially the Brits stuck it out until the end. Hey we are used to a drop of rain aren't we

Darn shame about the weather. Hope it didnt spoil any of the food, the key lime tarts tray looks a little wet
Do you have boring conferences to attend to during the day and then fun in the evenings?

Surely they can't serve fried calamari in Seaworld!

Such a pity about the wet weather - because it looked like Seaworld put on a good spread.
