While waiting for the fireworks show New Years eve at Busch Gardens Tampa, a woman was shot in the leg. Apparently someone outside the park was shooting into the air to celebrate the new year and the shot happened to hit her on the way down. More details are available on the Orlando Sentinel website.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, Seaworlds is laying off the mimes that entertained the audience before the Clyde and Seamore show in Orlando. This is a terrible loss for the park because this is the kind of thing that families look forward to revisiting time and again.
I know Seaworld is losing visitors to Universal and Disney, but taking out things that people look forward to seeing isn’t the way to fight this exodus.
Seaworld Orlando has released a series of videos about the new Antarctica section of the park. It’s very interesting and I can’t wait for May 24th when it opens.
Below are the 7 videos in the series. (They play sequentially from start to finish.)
