^ I found the transitions on Great White to be a little jerky when I rode.

I need some advice if someone wants to help a fellow theme park junkie. LOL. I have two more trips plan for the year (The Park at OWA on 10-7-2017 and of course SeaWorld San Antonio) . . . BUT . . . I'm trying to decide if November or December would better; mostly to ride Wave Breaker and the other roller coasters. I also know the Christmas event will be going on, but another concern is knowing will Journey to Atlantis will be open as well. I hate to miss it. :( Thanks for any advice! =)

SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment has sent us a press release announcing the new additions coming to SeaWorld and Aquatica San Antonio in 2018!

A Sesame Street® parade, a waterslide, a summer celebration and a beer festival are among the new experiences coming to SeaWorld and Aquatica San Antonio in 2018. The additions continue the evolution of growth at the park, which has added major events and attractions annually since 2011.

“We’re continuing to invest in our guest experience with our 2018 event additions and expansions,” said Park President Carl Lum. “From families to foodies and thrill seekers to music enthusiasts, SeaWorld and Aquatica San Antonio have something for everyone and we’re constantly working to grow our reputation as a leader in fun, one-of-a-kind experiences.” He added, “And a great deal and value for guests to enjoy everything the park has to offer in 2018 is with a 2-park annual pass for $99.”

Sesame Street Parade
The iconic brand expands out of the Sesame Street Bay of Play® and onto the pathways with the addition of a neighborhood street party parade. This daily event features everyone’s favorite Sesame Street friends, 10 themed floats, contemporary tunes including Sesame Street favorites and three show-stopping performances throughout the parade route. The Sesame Street Parade will make its debut in spring 2018.

Taumata Racer®
Taumata Racer, named for a famous hill in New Zealand, is slated to open in spring 2018 at Aquatica San Antonio. It’s a high-speed waterslide where riders zoom downhill head first on foam bodysurfing mats. It’s also a competitive ride with six side-by-side lanes. Taumata Racer launches riders in an entry tunnel that makes a swooping, 180-degree turn, then straightens out to make two additional descents over the 375-foot slide length and 55-foot drop in under 10 seconds.

Electric Ocean™
An all-new nighttime experience – Electric Ocean – headlines SeaWorld’s summer offerings with a nightly fireworks display and party zones with electronic dance music (EDM) that will create an electrifying dance club atmosphere. Also, returning to the summer lineup are guest favorites like HydroPower Xtreme FX and Shamu’s Celebration: Light Up the Night, as well as an encore of Sea Lions Tonite. Electric Ocean will light up the summer night sky from June 15 to August 12.

Bier Fest
Inspired by more than 200 years of Oktoberfest traditions, Bier Fest will feature a lineup of more than 100 beers from around the globe, including a variety of local favorites. The Bavarian celebration will also feature authentic German food and festive music. Bier Fest will take place over the course of three weekends, beginning September 1, 2018.

Expanded Event Offerings
SeaWorld will also expand its existing event offerings, packing in more dates and a lot more fun for 2018. The calendar kicks off with an expanded Wild Days celebration, featuring an action-packed month of unique and exciting animal shows perfectly timed for spring break, including Jungle Jack Hanna. The Seven Seas® Food & Wine Festival returns in April with a new food location, local bands and more globally inspired culinary fare than ever before. All-new frights – including a spectacularly scary nighttime stage show – await during Howl-O-Scream® with fall family activities available at Spooktacular®. With the holiday season comes an expanded Christmas Celebration® featuring an awe-inspiring 11 million lights, a contender for one of the largest lighted Christmas displays in North America.

New Best Value 2-Park Pass
For a limited time only, guests can experience the all new attractions and events in the 2018 lineup for $99 with a 2-Park Annual Pass. The 2-Park Annual Pass offers unlimited admission to both SeaWorld and Aquatica San Antonio and includes free parking, free tickets for friends, in-park discounts on swims, tours, special dining offers and many other exclusive benefits.

For more information and to purchase a 2-Park Annual Pass, visit SeaWorldSanAntonio.com.
