SeaWorld Orlando is expected to announce on Monday that it will add a $90 million water park to its portfolio of theme parks. The water park, which will open in 2008, will give the Central Florida tourism business a much-needed boost, travel experts say.

Much needed boost? Last time I checked central Florida already had it goin' on. This is good news though. Waterparks are great.

Funny how they mention River Country in that article. Hasn't it been closed for years?

River Country has been closed since 2001 and now looks like this:http://tinyurl.com/ys6w23
lol. It is pretty funny how they mention "bringing people back to Orlando" and so on like it's not a place that has 7 booming theme parks. (4 at WDW, 2 at USO, and SW)

Knowing how crowded WDW was during its "offseason" I would never say Orlando needs a boost. Maybe Sea World and Universal can get a boost to pull more people from Disney's mega resort.
