New water park leads improvements at SeaWorld Orlando
[Editor's note: Since the name of the site is Theme Park Insider
, we welcome park employees to converse with our online community. Here is a post from a SeaWorld employee (confirmed, by the way), which I've rerouted here from the discussion board. Welcome, Sandra.]
I work at Seaworld in Orlando, Florida as a Scenic artist and would like to share some new and exciting news. In 2008, we will have a brand new water park located across the street from the main park. Also, the Shamu show was just revamped and with a brand new look and new name, it is now called, Believe. Also, Happy Harbor just re-opened and it now has a roller coaster (mostly for kids) and two other really cute rides.
If you haven't visited our park in awhile you will be pleasantly surprised to see what we have done. Seaworld is constantly improving the park for our guests and we are the only park in Orlando where our guests can just walk in and see a show without standing in long lines. Our park is a hands-on animal park and Seaworld strives to be the very best.
My areas to maintain are Journey To Atlantis and Kraken and I love re-painting the murals and graphics at these two areas. I hope you all get a chance to visit our park soon!
Just got back from visiting Seaworld Orlando and the new Believe show is excellent.
As a local resident, we often go to Sea World just to stroll through the park. It is perfectly landscaped and honestly one of, if not the most well kept theme park in Orlando.
A lot of locals think that the new Water Park at SeaWorld will kill business at Wet'n'Wild.
The food at Busch parks is very good. I loved my meatball sub at Busch Gardens Tampa! It was great! I don't get why anyone would say the food is bad.
Welcome! I'm pleased to see any Sea World employee participate here, and I wish you good fortune in doing so.
I believe that I can answer your questions, though I am not an employee at Sea World or any other park.
Ah, Eric, that could explain the big plot of land next to IOA, it would be perfect for a wet'n'wild type park, made park of the Universal Resort, it could incorporate the current transportation system and location isn't too far from its current location.
Let me elaborate on my comment about Sea World food. I don't think the quality is indicative of all AB parks. I visit Busch Gardens Tampa several times a year and the food there is night and day better than SWO. The Zambia Smokehouse, for example, is excellent!
We do too, either the KFC or the Publix that is right outside of the park gates. Why? Cheaper. SWO has a lot of great food, and great rides. Does it need more? Absolutely. Is it as good as disney? Absolutely. Though they dont have as much to offer as disney. Some of the selections at disney's parks I question also. Sure its nice to have curry chicken, but do you really want to scarf that down and go on the rest of the day? It didnt sit well with me.
