Whales coming back to Six Flags Worlds of Adventure

Posted Tuesday, October 30, 2001 5:53 AM | Contributed by wkyc.com

According to a Cleveland TV station, Six Flags has the paperwork in order to bring orcas back to Six Flags Worlds of Adventure, half of which used to be owned by Sea World's parent company, Anheuser-Busch.

Read the story from WKYC.

The whales will be a nice addition and will bring back those who missed them after the sea world sale. This has to be one of the most ambitious parks to date in what it has done, what it wants to do, and how it wants to be viewed.

Ok, I am a longtime fan of the site. My favorite feature is the "RollerCoaster Rollback"

I noticed this story on the Rollback today and read through it. Yes, bringing back an old thread. The point here is not to argue the Geauga Lake saga, but rather to see how prophetic some of you were, especially Jeff (you pretty much nailed everything that would eventually take place).

The story here is not Geauga Lake's closing, but seeing how far we've come since 2001. Can you imagine if SeaWorld was still operating in Aurora, especially in light of the company's recent struggles with brand image?

As much as many of us in Northeast Ohio were sad to see what happened in Aurora, I think its safe to say that sooner or later we'd be here, whether SeaWorld stayed, bought Geauga Lake, Six Flags avoided the sale to Cedar Fair, etc. I think that no matter the company- we would've ended up right where we are.

Anyway- not inviting debate about what happened to the property, but rather an interesting take back through time (almost 20 years ago) to see how many were very leery about what Six Flags had planned.
