SEAWORLD INSPIRES GUESTS WITH LIVE PERFORMANCE AND AWE-INSPIRING BUBBLE ARTISTRY
SeaWorld and Bubble Legendary Bring Guinness World Record Holder Fan Yang to the Stage with an all-new Show
ORLANDO, Fla. (May 31, 2017) – A brand-new show has opened at SeaWorld Orlando and it will blow park guests away. In a first of its kind collaboration SeaWorld and Bubble Legendary present Pop, a live performance that takes inspiration from bubbles found in the sea and brings them to life in an amazing artistic display that is distinctly SeaWorld. The world-renowned bubble legend, Fan Yang brings his unique talent to the stage for each live performance. Beautifully choreographed to a custom musical score, each show takes a child’s imagination and explores new ways to create, celebrate and manipulate bubbles of all shapes and sizes. The result is a larger than life performance that delights guests all ages.
“I looked to the sea and found amazing inspiration. The bubbles found naturally in our oceans, trails of bubbles left by swimming penguins and bubbles created by dolphins and whales all came to mind,” shared Fan Yang, Founder of Bubble Legendary and the show’s star performer, “I’m so proud of this collaboration with SeaWorld and I hope every guest who attends Pop will love it as much as I do.”
During each performance, Fan Yang’s fascinating bubble artistry is enhanced with state-of-the-art lighting, sound and lasers. The set features 23-foot tall screens which flank the stage.
“The screens give us the opportunity to combine technology and imagery with the live performance on stage,” says Steve Welch, Creative Director at SeaWorld, “Through video of sea animals and the oceans, the screens help immerse guests in a world filled with bubbles. As the show unfolds, the screens also provide up-close views of the performance, enabling every guest to feel like they are sitting in the front row.”
Each show also surprises two members of the audience, as they are “bubblized” into the heart of a life-size bubble on stage. The show culminates with a wave of light, lasers and sound while surrounding the entire theater in a seemingly endless sea of bubbles.
Pop performs two to four times a day at SeaWorld’s Nautilus Theater through September 4, 2017. The show does not perform on Thursdays. Like all shows at SeaWorld Orlando, Pop is included with park admission and reserved seating options can be purchased online or at the park.
Pop marks the official kick-off of an exciting summer at SeaWorld. What’s next is now as the park continues to unveil a full line-up of new attractions and excitement. Later this month, Kraken Unleashed: Virtual Reality Experience, a new one-of-a-kind virtual adventure on SeaWorld’s Kraken roller coaster will open. The all-new Electric Ocean nighttime spectacular will also debut, transforming the park after dark into an exotic underwater world that lights up the night, complete with a fireworks finale.
The best way to experience all that SeaWorld has to offer this summer is with a multi-park ticket. Guests can buy early and save big by purchasing admission in advance online. Two-park tickets are only $54.99 per park to either SeaWorld Orlando or Aquatica, SeaWorld’s waterpark.
