SeaWorld’s Praise Wave is returning for an encore, this month.

Plus, guests can enjoy SeaWorld’s other amenities throughout the night, like thrill rides and animal attractions. It’s an event for families and friends of all ages.

“We were very pleased to welcome so many guests to Praise Wave earlier this year and we are thrilled to announce the return of Praise Wave with two additional weekends this fall,” said SeaWorld Orlando Vice President of Marketing Dan Dipiazzo. “September has traditionally been a time for Christian concerts in the Orlando area and we are looking forward to our fall event.”  

The live, encore performances will take place on Sept. 15 and 22.
