Leading his first earnings call since taking the position, new SeaWorld CEO Serge Rivera confirmed the company was continuing the plan for events and rides, in place since former CEO Joel Manby was in the grips of responding to Blackfish.
During the call, Rivera pointed to the company’s strong 2020 new attraction lineup, saying, "this is the first time in our history we have a major roller coaster opening in each of our five largest theme parks in the same year, and all of these coasters are truly world-class coasters."
Beyond 2020, the Orlando company will continue adding new thrill rides across its six parks, while also opening a brand-new Sesame Place park in San Diego. Public documents on the upcoming lakefront coaster in Orlando, and the new rumored new swing ride for Busch Gardens Tampa, have already been posted. Now, we’re learning the company is also planning substantial new additions in San Antonio, San Diego, Williamsburg, and at Sesame Place in Philadelphia.
