The facility will still be used for animal care just not open to park guests. They can’t just get rid of the facility unless they built a new one or got rid of the animals.That gives me another good reason to buy a SeaWorld pass. I know that Blackfish was a misstep, but at least someone cares about the animals. The possibility that they are favoring IP and rides over conservation and endangered animals makes me sick. They don't learn from their mistakes, going down the same path as Epcot.
