SeaWorld Abu Dhabi isn’t going to have any whales buts it’s also not an iron park. It has a model of themed environments that could be exported to the US parks.
So is SeaWorld. The animals PLUS the rides - the "most coasters in Orlando" tactic is just a marketing campaign that is really smart. It's something that they can brag about and they need marketing wins.Discovery Cove is pretty unique and worth going to from out of town.
It works for Busch Gardens Tampa and Sea World's major coasters are well designed thrills. They had the "Adventure park" marketing for that reason. They were rarely as immersive as Disney and Uni and while I do wish they would try harder for guest service and quality in other areas again,. Year round coaster capital makes sense. I enjoy BGT coaster thrills more than Cedar Point, especially the fact that the operating calendar is year round. Sea World is similar. Busch's(I know, now Sea World Entertainment's) major B&M coasters are some of the best in the world.Did we need a "coaster capital?" People come here specifically for the immersive, big budget theme park experience. I don't know if abandoning their old identity and settling for being Orlando's Six Flags is wise.
I addressed that. SeaWorld aiming to be like what is found elsewhere makes it less of a destination.
Also addressed that and it’s the same issue. You’re less likely to spend a day doing something you can do elsewhere for less.You do know how seaworld makes money right? Siphoning off a day from people going to universal' etc.....I think you would be hard pressed to find a tourist visiting orlando SPECIFICALLY for seaworld. You do all the other stuff....
I think you are both right.Maybe so but right now it's working. I believe they just had it's highest attendance level since 2013.
