For nearly five decades, SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment™ has surprised and amazed guests with up-close encounters with animals, unique entertainment and thrilling rides. Millions have been inspired through the power of entertainment, to celebrate, connect with and care for the natural world. On New Year's Day, the beauty and majesty of the sea will come to life in Pasadena, as SeaWorld's "Sea of Surprises" float appears in the Rose Parade ®

"We're delighted to be part of the 125th Rose Parade with our 'Sea of Surprises' float," said Jim Atchison, President and CEO of SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment. "SeaWorld has been creating entertainment experiences that blend imagination with nature for almost 50 years, and this float will help bring that celebration to life."

Built by Fiesta Parade Floats and designed by Stanley A. Meyer Design LLC, the SeaWorld float features a little boy, wide-eyed with wonder, who dives beneath a swirling, cresting wave. Through his ocean exploration, the boy's fantasy comes to life, in perfect fitting with the Rose Parade's theme this year, "Dreams Come True."

"We could not be more excited to have the opportunity to be a part of SeaWorld's 50th celebration, and what better way to celebrate than on the world's largest New Year's Day stage," said Tim Estes, president of Fiesta Parade Floats. "An absolutely perfect complement to the theme, 'Dreams Come True,' the 'Sea of Surprises' float melds the power of connecting to the natural world with the inspiration, fun, and imagination that millions experience when visiting SeaWorld parks."  

SeaWorld's float features many of the parks' most popular animals, including killer whales, dolphins, penguins and sea turtles. A 55-foot floral foaming wave of more than 20,000 cascading iris and roses "crash" over a colorful reef, designed with more than 15,000 florescent orange roses. The bright, whimsical coral reef is teeming with marine animals including starfish, sea horses, turtles, manta rays, crabs and fanciful fish.
