A grand, new mythical journey awaits families at Six Flags Marine World this season as the Park announces the addition of Tava's Jungleland, an elaborately jungle-themed play area featuring seven family rides, a giant treehouse adventure and live animal interaction. In 2006, the Park will also be debuting an all-new Shouka's Splashtime Show featuring the beautiful Orca and her Atlantic bottlenose dolphin friend, Merlin plus an expanded operating calendar concluding with Holiday in the Park featuring wintertime entertainment plus everyone's favorite family rides, coasters, shows and animals.
Read the press release from PRNewswire.

I am really excited to see the new area and am also glad to see the park stay open almost year-round again. :) March 4th is just over a month away, I wonder what the progress is on the new areas (I assume barely started.)

Probably the most underrated and least mentioned park in the chain. And it's one of the best, the perfect example of the type of park Snyder wants. This park has no problem attracting people of all ages, and it's nice to see them continuing to add kids rides and animals to the park.

And the new themed sections are well done. It's just not a coaster park, it's a family park. Shows + Animals + Rides = Value even at $49.99/General Admission.

Yeah, it seems as though after the disasterous performance and GP response they got from Zonga, they've been amping up their family offerings, which were already miles ahead of the other parks in the chain. Probably already has more shows than all the other SF parks combined!
SFMW is a great model for the type of park Snyder would like all the other parks in the chain to be, definitely something for everyone to enjoy regardless if they're 2 or 92.

I've always been very pleased with Marine World. Of the four six flags passes I've held in my life, two of them were based out of Marine World (I live in Seattle). It's nice to see them add some new stuff that is not yet another coaster - though Medusa and Roar are probably two of my all time favorite rides. Heck, even Kong is bearable. :)
