SeaWorld San Diego announces new sea turtle attractions for 2011
Written by Robert Niles
SeaWorld San Diego next summer will debut a new pavilion dedicated to sea turtles. Highlighted by a nearly-300,000-gallon aquarium, the park's new Sea Turtles attraction also will feature an interactive wall where visitors can see and track sea turtles around the world's oceans.

SeaWorld's also debuting a new flat ride as part of the sea turtle pavilion. Located just outside the aquarium building, Sea Turtle Rescue will be a boat-themed spinner ride.
These attractions replace the park's old Manatee Rescue, which closed earlier this year when the US Fish & Wildlife Service, which maintained custody of the park's manatees, ordered them back to Florida.
Construction on the sea turtle pavilion begins later this month and the new attractions are scheduled to open in Summer 2011.
