Tuesday theme park news round-up*
Written by Robert Niles
A few items and links of note for you today, after yesterday's Disney-Marvel blowout:Tweet
Whatever it turns out to be, the details will be revealed on what is now Cedar Point's teaser website for the attraction.
Just for laughs, check out the Twitter feed of @lawcomic, who published some of the best jokes about what will happen to various Disney and Marvel characters under this deal. I liked "Walt Disney's frozen head to be brought to life due to gamma radiation mishap." And "Stan Lee to make pointless cameo at the Magic Kingdom on a daily basis".
If you follow Theme Park Insider's Twitter feed (and you should!), you might know that @shamu and I have had a running, uh, conversation about my daughter Natalie's love of otters. Well, looks like I'll be making the drive down to San Diego sometime during the week of Sept. 27 through Oct. 3. That's because it will be "Sea Otter Awareness Week" at SeaWorld. The park will offer presentations, Q&As with animal care specialists and kids' craft projects at the Otter Outlook at Rocky Point Preserve. The park's O.P. Otter character will be walking around for photos, too.
