This lush, new tropical area will give guests the opportunity to:
*Touch, train, feed and play with Atlantic bottlenose dolphins in an unforgettable interactive experience at Dolphin Encounter;
*Catch rare underwater and eye-level views of warm-weathered penguins frolicking in their two-tier, 8,000-gallon outdoor rocky pool at Penguin Passage;
*Experience the slippery skin of exotic, southern stingrays alongside a 12,000-gallon pool at Stingray Bay;
*Enjoy an all new Caribbean themed Sea Lion Show
Read all about it for yourself on the parks webpage...

Well thats a rather cool and interesting addition. I kinda wish more Six Flags parks also offered the 'Zoo' experience. I do need to make it out there, and plan it maybe next year.
Now is it march yet so I can go to the *other* Six Flags in Cali?

Isn't SFMM open every week, but just on weekends for now?

I guess, never been to Cali though, so I wouldn't know.
That will change, though, come Solace.

I like the looks of the new park additions. They look a lot more thought out and planned, much less cookie cutter and cheap.

It looks like they are taking a page out of Sea World Orlando/Discovery Cove's book by allowing guests to get up close and personal with dolphins and other sea life. The only exception is that it doesn't look like you can actually get into the water at Ocean Discovery like you can at Discovery Cove.

This looks like a great new addition to the park. One of my favorite aspects of Sea World Florida is the ability to allow guests to get close with the stingrays and dolphins. Very nice.

Kind of sounds like what SFWoA was trying to do and fell flat on their face. Of course, there's probably a bigger market in California for it.

Sweeeeet! Sea Lions, they could have a coaster themed with it call Walrus Ka, a 500ft, 150mph rocket coaster.
