SeaWorld Orlando's waterfront opens to public

Posted Tuesday, May 27, 2003 5:28 AM | Contributed by Jeff

"The Waterfront" is modeled after the seaports of the United States. It is the biggest attraction to be built at Sea World in the last 30 years. It offer high-end dining with food that isn't your typical theme park food.

Does anyone know if you can visit those restaurants without paying admission to the park?

Jeff, I am continually impressed with your ability to post all of the industry news. I don't know how you are able to get it all but it is always of great interest to me.

I don't think you would have to pay admission. I'm thinking that it is similar to Universal Citywalk.

Jeff's avatar Wahoo: Thanks!

Seems to me this kind of project just makes sense. Disney and Universal have gone out of their way to try and keep you on their property after the park closes, so I think SeaWorld is trying to do the same. It's a fabulous park to begin with, why not keep people hanging around before they go back to I-Drive or Disney or whatever?

All of the restaurants are located inside the park, so you do have to pay admission to visit them. I work at the Waterfornt, and the theming is wonderful! Come check out my show!

How expensive is "high end dining," as the article puts it? Is it family friendly pricing?

Probably as "high-end" as the restaurants at Universal's CityWalk or Downtown Disney. Is there anything in Orlando that has "family-friendly pricing"?

I agree that this is a logical move for SeaWorld. The park did need something to keep the crowds in once they visited all the exhibits and rode Kraken and JTA, and this fills the bill just perfectly.
