SeaWorld CEO Joel Manby takes on "small minded" arguments of activists

Posted Tuesday, January 9, 2018 12:08 AM | Contributed by Jeff

SeaWorld Entertainment CEO CEO Joel Manby said on Monday that its current pool of whales, which can live up to age 50, would stay in its parks for years. "I get frustrated with the small-minded arguments from activists that really don't know what they're talking about," Manby said.

If they get their wish and a Sea World park returns to Northeast Ohio, when it ultimately fails due to location I can only hope Cedar Fair buys it, transforms it into a waterpark, and then closes it a decade later just to screw with them.

None of this has anything to do with Blackfish. Sea World has been in a downward spiral ever since they switched to Coke.

They could learn more about finances if they hired Conneaut's CFO.

Any truth to the reports that VR has been removed from Kraken?

Someone on FB reported and “verified” it was gone.

An article I found today from Orlando Weekly that specifically mentions poor efficiency in ride operations

We were at the park for a couple hours today. The parking lot was completely filled, but the park was managable. I got one ride on Mako, which was stacking two trains and still only took about 15 minutes to get through the line. Manta was posted at 15 as well, but I passed. Kraken was down the entire time we were there.

Driving down I-Drive to turn onto Central Florida Parkway, I honestly thought both Mako and Kraken were down because it took so long before I saw Mako cycle. I’d say it was doing 3 1/2-4 minute dispatches. That just isn’t acceptable anywhere, let alone in Orlando.
