This year’s spring break visit to SeaWorld San Diego was extra special because we were there during SeaWorld’s Magic Weekends. Every weekend in March features different illusionists and magic themed fun in the park.
The headliner talents perform 25-30 minute shows, included with your park admission, at the Mission Bay Theater in the park. The weekend we visited featured Michael Grandinetti, an illusionist that has also been seen on NBC, Entertainment Tonight, ESPN and more. Our eight year old daughter looked forward to the show for months leading up to her spring break.
We arrived to the Mission Bay Theater early for the best seats.
The indoor air conditioned theater has comfortable seating with great views of the stage.
The impressive show included a wide range of illusions with audience participation. We’ll never know how the three guest volunteers’ rings ended up in a loaf of baked bread or how Michael swapped places with his assistant in the locked Houdini like contraption.
But as Michael instructed at the start to his show, it was a more enjoyable experience not trying to crack the illusion mysteries. Instead we sat back and watched in amazement as he appeared to float above the stage.
Are your children fascinated by illusions too?
SeaWorld’s Magic Weekends continue to delight and astound with fun through March.

A few of my favorite visits include my daughter learning that girls can be anything they want to be from Miss California and learning about a killer whale trainer’s first hand experience with whales.
