    sounds fun and it makes sense - they are obviously now trying to focus on their rescue efforts and bring attention to that

    I guess someday Sea World will be all rides- maybe with a fish tank somewhere as a throwback?

    Are they still allowed to exhibit fish in a tank, or does that get you protesters, too?

    Happy to see this park tending towards more rides and away from captive cetaceans.
    A second water ride will be a welcome addition, too. That park is low on shade, but it was hard to justify getting all wet all day just for Atlantis.

    It seems like that's where they're headed.

    America doesn't want education on marine life and conservatiion.. we just want rides!!!!
    Because, ya know, we don't have enough amusement parks..
    Maybe Mako will inspire people to donate time and money to rescue facilities....

    Do hashtags earn money for conservation efforts?

    They also mentioned that the passholder lounge will be closed during this construction, so I assume it's over in that area. Looks interesting!

    That looks awesome. Hope it has some good theming throughout the ride as well.

    Looks neat! Opening in a year is not bad, hope it's a good ride.

    I despise SeaWorld but this could be tempting.
