A day after my first trip to Cedar Point, we headed to Sea World. I think this is the second and final time that I ever visited this park. Quite a shame, as it was a very nice park in it's heyday. Waterslides now cover most of the areas where these pictures were taken, but at one time Sea World Ohio was one of the most popular attractions on the East Coast.
Enjoy the photos.
Shamu or Mamu (always mix up that one) jumping out of the water.
Looks like the trainers used to use props a lot more for the Whales. If I remember correctly, no targets are used in the newer Shamu shows.
Flipper or some other crazy high flying dolphin.
Checking out the park map with Carol (One of my mother's oldest friends). We stayed with them for the weekend outside Cleveland.
Ski Show! I am pretty sure that this one was themed to Charlie Brown (take that Cedar Fair!). On my previous visit years earlier, I distinctly remember the theme being the Hatfields and McCoys.
Don't know what ever gave me that Charlie Brown idea?
In a tradition long since stolen from Cypress Gardens, I give you the Human Pyramid!
Don't remember anything about this show, but I am pretty sure that the Sea Lions were still called Clyde and Seymore. Wow. Those guys have been around forever.
They call him Flipper Flipper Flipper.
Some random tank of water.
Posing with my mother in front of the entry fountain. Don't laugh! Those tall socks were all the rage back in the day.
Thanks for reading. More Retro TRs to come.
