Wednesday theme park news round-up
Written by Robert Niles
Answers to potentially hypothetical questions, from the day in theme park news:Tweet
- Do you want to see what the Manta trains will look like for next year's new coaster at SeaWorld San Diego?
It's on the IAAPA show floor:
- The Orlando theme parks are getting decked out for Christmas. Will the new kid on the block, Legoland Florida, have a Christmas celebration?
Of course. "Christmas Bricktacular" kicks off with a ceremony to light the park's 30-foot Lego Christmas tree, built with 270,000 bricks. Santa will be available for pictures in the botanical gardens and holiday decorations and nightly tree lightings will continue from Dec. 8 - 31. The final day will be Kids' New Year's Eve, with a countdown and fireworks at midnight, Kid Standard Time, which also happens to be 7 pm Eastern.
- Is it true that Tokyo Disneyland still has the old version of Star Tours?
Until next April 1. The park's owners announced today that the park will install the new 3D version of the ride for spring 2013.
While on the topic of Tokyo Disney, I'll be visiting Tokyo next month, on my way back from the Transformers premiere at Universal Studios Singapore. I'll be visiting both Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea, and am taking requests for what you'd like to see reviewed in my trip reports here on Theme Park Insider.
