Could Brewmasters return to SWO?Sea World Orlando: The theming at the Terrace is terrible, and the buffet has been closed and the signs removed.
From tilikum shamuAfter one day, the ill-fated buffet at the re-themed Hospitality House (now called the Terrace) is gone. the signs have been removed. Workers mention that they've heard rumors that Brewmasters MIGHT comeback, but for a fee. Anybody heard anything similar?

From Gareth HFunny, I was there yesterday Saturday and noticed that the buffet was gone. My guess is that it will be seasonal, much like the all you can eat at Busch Gardens.

Its doubtful the BrewMaster club will return though, with or without a fee, but am heading back there Wednesday to check out Mantas test runs, so will enquire!
From David GrahamYeah I noticed the Buffet was gone on the 8th when I was there. Gareth you going to get pics or hopefully video of Manta in action? I'm going to try to get video Thurs is my first chance during the week to go. Also be nice to think the B.C was back, but if they charge they better offer more than they did really.

From tilikum shamuI don't think it will be the buffet. They got their ass handed to them on this one...

From Gareth HDavid, went yesterday, saw a climpse of them reversing a car on the track but that was it. Did get stuck for about 15 minutes while a truck exited the site, and a cement mixer truck went in, so thinking testing may be more of an evening thing. Daytime would be landscaping. Will try and head back over next week later in the day!

From David GrahamLOL yeah I made it there yesterday about 2pm and ran into the same 15 music trucks as you did. I asked the lady in the gift shop by turtles about it and she told me they usually (or had been) doing the testing between 4-6pm, I wasn't able to stay due to plans already, but next Thursday I'll be down there if I can't make it for the weekend.

The Buffet was only there for the Bud BBQ period (Enf of) and MAY return during the busy Summer period.
They are still going to change the entire area into a new restaurant once funding is approved (Cutbacks etc etc)
Beer went up a Dollar+ today.
From tilikum shamuAnother brilliant move by a subsidiary of a once-great company that seems to be twisting in the wind since the real brains of the operation have been bought out (ABIII and family.)

From tilikum shamuActually... it's pretty funny rereading your post... "once funding is approved..."

With employees being told to turn out the lights when they leave a room and make double-sided copies... I just don't see them approving capital expenditure for a dining facility. I've also noticed that they are cutting employees early, yet leaving 1 person at the parking gate causing huge lines, when normally its free parking 3 hours prior to close. And I noticed that my beer was more at Shamu stadium even with my Platinum discount.
All this amounts to me thinking The Brito Bandito isn't going to approve money to revamp the HH. The only thing worse than the boys from Brazil selling these parks would be for them to hold on to them and bleed them dry.
