Let me start off by saying that I support SeaWorld, and I would love for the company to pull through this slump they are in. But one thing that always kills me is the awful service at SeaWorld and Busch Gardens Tampa. I haven't been to their other parks in quite some time so I can't comment on their service. Employees always look completely miserable, barely talk, can't accurately answer anything, can't be bothered to even halfway look like they want to be there... oh and let's talk about the efficiency of their operations. Five+ minute dispatches on their coasters is the norm. On Manta this means you're left hanging uncomfortably for quite a long time. Of course Manta has two stations to alleviate this... but SeaWorld rarely bothers to staff both stations. The unfortunately truth is that most Six Flags parks have better service than SeaWorld, in that there's at least some enthusiasm from the employees and there's at least some attempt for efficiency in their operations. I use Six Flags because they're always the standard that the Orlando parks are used against, as in "this is why we fly to Orlando to see these parks." With SeaWorld's abysmal attendance figures, you'd think their top priority would be ensuring the place is pleasant to visit, but the stark difference in guest service between SeaWorld and Disney and Universal is a big deterrent. I want to hear what you guys think about this topic.
