SeaWorld’s Magic Weekends

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.

SeaWorld's Magic Weekends continue to delight and astound with fun through March 2017. Park admission includes an illusionist show and more.

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 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?

    • The illusion shows are only part of the Magic Weekends but SeaWorld always has something great going on. We are looking forward to next month’s food festival!

    • We’ve only visited the San Diego park but I’m sure they are all awesome. My kids would be very disappointed if we weren’t just a road trip away from SeaWorld!

  2. So cool! I love to watch illusionists but I’ve only ever seen a show on TV. It would be even more impressive to see it live and in person. Thanks for sharing your experience!

  3. Oh wow, this looks like so much fun!! It’s been nearly 2 years since I visited Sea World – I’m definitely going to try to go again this summer when I visit San Diego ^^

  4. It’s interesting to think about going to sea world and watching illusions instead of seeing the creatures! Yet it definitely opens the realm of more things to do! Love the floating picture!

  5. That sounds really fun! We used to have seaworld passes but we just don’t make it to the parks anymore haha. My kids are really into Universal stuff with Harry Potter right now, but my son has a magic set that maybe this could spark his interest.

    • We are also SeaWorld annual pass holders but we visit frequently. This spring break week we also visited Universal Studios because my oldest daughter was so excited about Harry Potter. Such fun!

  6. I love this kind of family fun weekends! My little daughter is too young for the magic show but I can’t wait to take her to one. She’s so curious and I’m sure she’ll love the entertainment
