We are closely monitoring Hurricane Matthew. For the safety of our guests and ambassadors, SeaWorld is CLOSED on Friday, October 7. The park is expected to reopen by 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 8 and remain open until 7 p.m. with normal Spooktacular activities from 12:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. Hours are subject to change.

As the storm moves north, so do cancelations with Atlanta, Charleston and Savannah taking the largest hits.
Airports in Southern Florida are reopening, however, with flights expected to resume midday. Airlines moved planes and crews out of the storm's path and must now fly them back into the region.
