School is nearly out and San Diegans are gearing up for the 2014 installment of “Summer Nights at SeaWorld.”

Guests can enjoy all their favorite park attractions by day and then hang out for a whole new park after dark.

The new DJ-hosted nighttime killer-whale show, “Shamu’s Celebration: Light Up the Night,” will have guests dancing and cheering through the night. Silly sea lions and mischievous otters will have visitors laughing with delight as the animals wreak havoc onstage at “Sea Lions Tonite.”

Then, as the evening comes to a crescendo, SeaWorld’s new fireworks display, “Celebrate the Wonder,” will light up the night’s sky. The marine park’s summertime extravaganza is in high gear and continues June 7-8, June 14-Aug. 17, Aug. 23-24, and Aug. 30–Sept. 1.

Guests can purchase a SeaWorld one-year membership, which allows repeat admission for an entire year, plus free parking and discounts on food and merchandise. The membership cost is $145 for all ages.

During “Summer Nights at SeaWorld,” guests may also enjoy the park’s new fireworks display, “Celebrate the Wonder,” which caps off an evening full of nighttime animal shows, plus the park’s 320-foot Skytower Flag of Lights, which is decked out in red, white and blue lights from dusk to midnight through Sept. 1.

Fireworks display times in the summer vary according to park hours.

For park hours, show schedules or to purchase tickets to skip the ticket line at the park, visit SeaWorldSanDiego.com, or call (800) 257-4268.

It is sad... more exploitation of SeaWorld's sea mammals now extending their word day into the night and exposing them to all the noise and commotion. San Diego requires that the displays provide education... note there is zero mention of any educational value.

SeaWorld's exploitation of orcas and other cetaceans is just plain cruel and inhumane. The orcas' average lifespan is half that of wild orcas. Shame on SeaWorld and shame on those who support this cruelty,

The short lifespan issue if SeaWorld's Orcas is pure fabrication. Here is the truth about the lifespan issue: http://seaworld.com/en/truth/killer-whales/lifespan/

One more thing, education involved attraction and entertainment in order for maximum engagement. As a teacher I can assure you that the educational value of the summer events are still there and great care is talking to make sure that all of the animals are OK with the longer hours.

Sea World is not good for the whales. The company is starting to position itself as conservationists, but that really means the whales should be free and not forced to perform. I think it is so sad that young children and adults are lured to subscribe to such abuse of animals for amusement.

If the company is "starting to position itself as conservationists" then explain JJ and TJ. You might need to look back in history to see how SeaWorld saved their lives. As a matter of fact SeaWorld was started by 4 UCLA grads with what in mind? (I will give you a hint it starts with conser.)

So disappointed to see Sea World on the cover of Beach and Bay Press this week - especially promoting a "DJ hosted nighttime killer-whale show". Disturbing on many levels, not the least of which is the clear show of support for the continued exploitation of these beautiful marine animals. Also, the front page? You could have at least filed it in the paid advertising section where it so obviously belongs. So much for objective journalism. Shame on you.
