SeaWorld San Antonio unveils plans for 2015-16 attractions
SeaWorld San Antonio has announced that unprecedented expansions will dramatically transform the park’s landscape over the next several years. Each of these future attractions involves state-of-the-art enhancements to animal exhibits.
SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment announced that it plans to build new, first-ever killer whale environments at all three SeaWorld parks. The enlarged environments will provide killer whales with even more dynamic opportunities for stimulation. It will support the whale’s broad range of behaviors and provide choices that can challenge the whales both physically and mentally. Among other things, it is planned to include a “fast water current” that allows whales to swim against moving water, thus functionally increasing speed and diversity.
The San Antonio park will begin construction in spring 2015 on a significant addition that will open in 2016. This project, one of the largest capital investments in the park’s history, will include a revolutionary new area for dolphins located in the northern part of the park.
In spring 2015, SeaWorld San Antonio will complete major renovations to its California sea lion attraction. The area surrounding the sea lion facilities will be reimagined as Pacific Point Preserve -- an immersive experience that has the look and feel of a Pacific coast town where guests will make powerful connections with sea lions and other coastal wildlife.
SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment is one of the world’s foremost zoological organizations and a global leader in animal welfare, training, husbandry, and veterinary care.
The SeaWorld rescue team has helped more than 22,000 animals in need over the last four decades.
