Blackfish people aren't likely to be Kid Rock fans.

Not to steer the topic off of Blackfish and Beers, Bands, and BBQ, but I've been thinking about the rumored 2015 coaster.

Right now the park has Shamu Express for the little kids and then the next step up is Journey to Atlantis (which most people don't even think of as a coaster). But the jump from Journey to Atlantis to Kraken and Manta is pretty big. So instead of the Wing Coaster that I've seen people talking about, maybe we could see a family coaster?

I haven't heard Wing Coaster, but I have heard B&M Hyper somewhere between the Nautilus theatre and Happy Harbor.

Any chance any TPR members will be able to get over to SeaWorld on Sunday and record the kidrock performance (or at least the beginning?)

Wing coaster seem to be the rumored coaster for 2015 for many parks. Maybe the same Dippin Dots employee works at SFOT, BGT and SDC. I really hope these rumors of wing coasters are wrong.

Today Theme Park Review had the chance to check out this year's Bands, Brew, & BBQ event at SeaWorld Orlando. A personal favorite of mine thanks to the quality food and entertainment brought in, this six-week long event adds significant value to this already incredible park! This weekend's lineup includes Alan Jackson and Kid Rock with upcoming acts still to be announced. It should be noted that, despite the significant negative publicity over Blackfish and a good number of bands dropping out of their commitment to the event, you'd NEVER know it by walking through the park. The park was busy throughout our visit, filled with people enjoying the great food, the delicious beer, the warmup entertainment and of course, the headliner act. And while we couldn't stay to see Alan Jackson himself, the Atlantis Bayside Stadium where he was performing was nearly filled to capacity over an hour and a half before the show was supposed to start!

SeaWorld is continuing to add a "Sea of Surprises" to its parks as a part of its 50th Anniversary Celebration, but in the meantime, you can always count on the parks' seasonal events like Bands, Brew, & BBQ to give you even more reason to go visit!

Work walls have sprung up in the park in preparation for the upcoming 50th Anniversary Celebration in the SeaWorld Parks and the "Sea of Surprises" that will come with it!

But this is why we were here today!

Each year, the event gets additional sponsors and gets a little bigger and a little better!

SeaWorld Orlando's special events section gets redressed between Shamu's Halloween Spooktacular, the Christmas Celebration, Bands, Brew, & BBQ, Viva La Musica and Summer Nights throughout the year.

This fire pit was a new addition to the waterfront stage area.

There is a lot of amazing food here, but we'll get back to that soon enough...

This is after all known as Bands, Brew, & BBQ!

For those interested in the Brew side of things, there's this fantastic option to sample ten craft brews from along the waterfront.

You get this awesome little badge that gives you the chance to enjoy some fine beer!

And perhaps some cider too...
011.JPG
Yes. We do like bands. We do like BBQ. But we especially like Brew!
012.JPG
Some of the great breweries in Florida have brought their beers to Bands, Brew & BBQ!

And without question, the food here is very popular too!

And with food this good, why wouldn't it be?

If there's one thing we learned from Delgrosso's, it is just how important THE SAUCE can be for a theme park.

Here I am eating a bacon wrapped jalapeño. Moments later my face turned raspberry red and steam blew out of my ears and nose.

We love Shamu!

This weekend's lineup is sure to be extremely popular!
019.JPG
This was almost an hour and a half before the concert was set to start.

It wouldn't be a SeaWorld event without some live animal ambassadors present!
021.JPG
And how could you have a BBQ event at SeaWorld without some of SeaWorld's own fabulous ribs?
022.JPG
More great brew too!
023.JPG
It goes without saying, we really, really love Bands, Brew, & BBQ! And we'll definitely be coming back for this year's event is over!

Looks like a good time was had by all. I'm so happy to see the park busy and shrugging off the recent bad publicity. That BBQ looked so good I could almost taste it.

I just can't believe all these people came out to see enslaved orcas in their bathtub sized tanks and listen to music sung by animal haters :roll:

We were here today for this event, and had a really good time. Great food, and a great beer selection for a good price. Highly recommend you guys check it out if you are on the fence. A good concert is a great way to end a day here. Alan Jackson was very good!
