“Summer Nights” at Sea World Orlando

On June 2nd I had the opportunity to attend Media Day at Sea World Orlando about the launch of their new summer events. They are giving guests  more opportunities to jumpstart their summer with new attractions and returning fan-favorite events.

Sea World is introducing their new nightly spectacular show “Electric Ocean”, which brings longer park hours and takes guests into an exotic underwater world filled with dazzling lights, electrifying dance music and brilliant evening energy that sparks as the sun is setting.  Guests will also be able to experience exciting nighttime shows and new variety of food and drink throughout the park.

New for this year they are introducing the “Touch the Sky” show, a high-energy celebration featuring majestic bottlenose dolphins, beautiful macaws and original musical score.  The energy of the night ends with a family-friendly dance party before “Ignite” lights up the sky in a spectacular fireworks finale.

They will also be offering free brews all summer long through September 2, 2018 from 10:30 a.m. to one hour before park close. Complimentary domestic and seasonal beers will be available for guests at Mama’s Pretzel Kitchen Patio. Each guest can receive up to two complimentary 7-ounce beers per visit. They will be rotating beer offerings throughout the summer starting off with Sea World’s  Mako Red Ale.

Also opening this summer is Infinity Falls, taking guests on an adventure through a lush rainforest environment inspired by some of the world’s most incredible freshwater ecosystems. It will be featuring the world’s tallest drop on a river raft and will allow visitors to experience the feel of exhilarating rapids. The ride will also feature an innovative elevator lift designed to transport the rafts to the top of the ride’s 40-foot drop before plunging into churning whitewater.

Andretti… Entertainment You Can Feel

On April 7, 2018 I had the opportunity to visit Andretti Indoor Karting & Gaming and I definitely have to say that it is one of the best family entertainment places I have ever been to. Andretti is a state of the art Arcade, it features Indoor Karting, 12 lanes of Boutique Bowling,Ropes Course, Professional VR Racing Simulators, Laser Tag, Dark Ride Interactive Motion Theater and many more.  At Andretti Karting and Games you pay as you go, you don’t have to pay a entrance fee, which is great. You decide which games you and your group want to enjoy and you pay only for those. You can definitely spend the whole day there and not be bored at all.

When I went I had the opportunity to interview Eddie, the creator of Andretti Indoor Karting & Gaming, he explained to us the vision he had for this attraction. Being that with hot weather people want to have fun, but they want to be indoors, this is what Andretti gives them.  One of the most interesting things about Andretti is that the food in their Restaurant is all made from scratch and that none of their products are frozen. The Eat-Drink-05BigBreenEgg-BBQPorkParfaitingredients for their pizza come from Italy and everything is made when you order it.

We had the opportunity to try some of their menu items like the Sky High Nachos, Mario’s Margherita Pizza, Grilled Salmon, Cobb Salad, BBQ Pork Parfait, St. Louis Style Ribs and for dessert the Mango and Passion Fruit Cheesecake. From everything that we tried my favorite one was the BBQ Pork Parfait, it has layers of mashed potatoes, bbq pulled pork, mac ‘n’ cheese, shredded cheddar, bbq sauce, scallions, garnished with a baby back rib.

At Andretti you can separate different Private Rooms for Birthdays, Weddings, Private Events, Team Buildings, etc. The way it is setup it would be a great option for companies image2that want to have a team building activity with their employees.  For your special event they can bring out The Andrettibot, which will interact with your guests and you will be able to take some pictures with him.

They  have a restaurant on the premises and they offer food  at the Bowling area as well. There are two full bars, one on the first floor, as soon as you come in, and the other one on the second floor next to the Adult Karting Experience. The Adult and Children Karting Experience is separated, so both kids and adults are able to enjoy racing based on their ages.

Every game has a separate price, and they offer also packages that you can combine. For my opinion prices are not bad and I feel it is made for everyone’s budget. The Packages can be custom built for your specific party or event. They also have a Members Club that you can join and this way you will be able to take advantage of some discounts. I recommend that you go in groups of 6 or more if you want to compete between each other especifically for the Karting and Bowling. The maximum amount of participants in both is 6 and that way you can play each other.

All the staff is amazing, and one of things that really stood out for me was that many members of the staff were bilingual, I believe this is something very important for the travel industry. Their operating hours are Sunday thru Thursday from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 a.m. and on Friday and Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m. It doesn’t matter if you are 5 years old or 50 years old you will still be able to enjoy Andretti Indoor Karting & Gaming in the way that you want. They have new locations opening soon so stay tune and visit www.andrettikarting.com to find out what city they will be at next. I want to thank all the Team from Andretti for being great with us and making our visit be full of fun.
