It was the pass holder picnic at Sea World today so I dropped by the park for a couple of hours to enjoy some coaster riding, and then what turned out to be an excellent picnic. Plenty of great food and entertainment kept the pass holders happy for the duration. Mark Pauls gave the talk, and the only thing of note to come out of it was his statement ... “Infinity Falls will be opening in a few weeks” .... Hmmm ... we shall see. Walking by IF they were running the rafts with test dummies, so getting there after the pump replacement. Mark also mentioned he had ridden IF so it seems some ambassador testing is going on. After I’d had my fill, I wandered over and had a one on one with Mark. We had a great talk and the main points to come out of our chat were ....
1). No more VR on Kraken
2). The Shamu show will be changing but not to the extent as at San Diego. He didn’t say if it would be renamed to Orca Encounter.
3). Very unlikely the pass holder dining plan will return.
4). They had a very close safety call with the train at BGW, but the hope is they (trains at BGW & BGT) will be back up and running in October.
It was a fun day at SWO, and when they get the chance to do things for the pass holders they always seem to get it right.
Should be a fun time at the park with Halloween and Christmas just around the corner.
