I love SeaWorld! And I'm glad things are starting to improve for the company! =) I visited SeaWorld Orlando for the first time in 2011, and I'll be visiting SeaWorld San Diego for the first time in July. The reason I'm visiting is because of the new coaster (I've never ridden a Sky Rocket II model), and to enjoy the wonderful atmosphere that SeaWorld parks provide. I'm happy that SeaWorld does so much for the animals, but adding coasters, thrill rides, and other attractions is what draws guest in. As long as they focus on the parks, and stop caring about that BLACKFISH garbage, and worrying about PETA, I'm sure the company will do just fine. =) =) =)

Apologies if this was posted here but this is awesome.

SeaWorld bans plastic bags, straws from 12 theme parks
http://www.latimes.com/os-bz-seaworld-plastic-bag-20180608-story.html


To protect the environment, SeaWorld Entertainment has removed all single-use straws and plastic bags from the company’s 12 theme parks, including those in Orlando.

The Orlando-headquartered company made the announcement Friday in a news release.

"We see the harmful effects of plastic pollution in the animals we rescue and rehabilitate, and therefore, recognize the importance of doing our part to curb plastic pollution,” interim CEO John T. Reilly said in a statement.

The Ocean Conservancy, a nonprofit environmental advocacy group, estimates that 8 million metric tons of plastics end up in the ocean every year, SeaWorld said in the release.

At SeaWorld parks, visitors will now receive paper straws or can buy reusable plastic straws for their drinks at the concession stands.

“The process has been ongoing for a few years,” SeaWorld spokesman Travis Claytor said about reducing plastic waste. “This has been something we’ve been working toward.”

Our welcome bags for our wedding guests are reusable metal and bamboo straws and making a donation to the Marine Mammal Center with some information on the table about the importance of reducing the use of single-use plastic. (Yep, we're those people, I get it. For what it's worth, the food and booze will be kick-ass, too.)

Glad to see more and more companies doing the right thing.

Busch Gardens Williamsburg had paper straws when I went to the food and wine festival this year, they are awful. I ended up using about two straws per frozen drink because they kept getting clogged and end up looking like someone chewed on them when I didn't lol and it affects the taste cause it really does feel like you have paper in your mouth.

I'm totally behind getting rid of plastic straws but paper straws aren't the answer for me. I'll just bring a reusable straw for myself next year.

So I got an email from SeaWorld late last night, apparently they settled this class action lawsuit and some people are entitled to some free popcorn now lol.... This whole thing just seems like a massive waste of time and money of the court system just to get some free popcorn out of SeaWorld lol... This is from a Google search about it...

https://topclassactions.com/lawsuit-settlements/closed-settlements/832470-seaworld-customer-receipt-class-action-settlement/


And this is from the email I received...

"Pursuant to the Settlement Agreement and final order of the Court approving the settlement in the matter of Diaz v. SeaWorld Entertainment, Inc., et al, SeaWorld has chosen popcorn as the free food concession item. Accordingly, if you have received this email as an entitled Class Member you may follow the steps below to obtain two (2) certificates each of which shall entitle you to one free bag of popcorn (2 bags in total) from any concession stand within a SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment theme park where such item is sold. Each certificate shall be valid for 2 years from the date of issuance. You will not be required to pay the stated purchase price for the concession or tax. Park admission is required in order to redeem this offer."
