Clydesdales still at risk at SWO?

Sea World Orlando: Changes continue at SeaWorld Orlando and Busch Gardens Africa.

Spent Saturday at Busch Gardens Africa and Sunday at SeaWorld Orlando. It is very interesting how they are handling the retheming of the Hospitality Houses and Brewmasters Club. Both have signs stating that the HH will close briefly then reopen as a new resteraunt. The difference? BGA's sign, plus fliers that they are handing out, clearly state that this will have no effect on the Clydesdales and that they'll continue to be on display in teh Clydesdale Hamlet. At SWO, they aren't handing out fliers, and there is no (zero, zip, nada) mention of the Clydesdales — at all. The Clydesdale workers there are still up in the air and don't know that they'll have jobs after — drum roll please — Jan. 31, the same day that the Hospitality House closes. Also of interest with regards to SWO, the BBQ resteraunt that was formerly located behind Pets Ahoy — Smokey Creek Grill — has been reopened in a very slipshod manner as a pizza place. So, I would suspect that the new HH will be opened as a smokehouse or similar establishment.

Screamscape reported that Voyagers and the BBQ place just switched menus. I'm not a fan of either one of them, so anything different will be appreciated by me...
