Sharon Aguillen has been named vice president of entertainment for the SeaWorld and Aquatica parks in San Antonio.

Aguillen has been with SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment since 1996. She began as a theater services technician at Busch Gardens Williamsburg in Virginia and was later promoted to stage manager, production assistant, production supervisor and finally production manager.

In 2007, Aguillen transferred to San Antonio to serve as director of show production for the Alamo City marine life theme park. She has since been instrumental in developing a variety of entertainment products for the San Antonio park including “Sesame Street Bay of Play,” as well as new shows such as “Azul,” “One Ocean” and “Cool Vibrations.”

In 2011, SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment began expanding its popular brands into media and entertainment platforms to connect people to nature and animals through movies, television, and digital media; plus began developing new lines of licensed consumer products.

Did a quick run through the park the other day and snapped a few pictures to share of the happenings around the park, mainly of the construction beginning for the new themed entrance. On a side note there's rumors going around that when JTA opens from its rehab, it will be an altered ride experience. If I had to guess, I'd say they're improving the story-line of the ride,which is damn near incomprehensible. Anyone know more???

This is where the new entrance will have the guests enter once done. It's between the Hospitality center and the current entrance

Up above gives you a nice overview of whats going on

not sure if this is construction for the new entrance or just landscape work

In other news it looks as though they're adding a little river in Manta's queue

I really wish I could contribute to the cause here, but I have no idea what's going to happen to JTA.
Hopefully it will actually become a good ride.

JTA's story is actually pretty cool, but no one every seems to pay attention to it. I'll be honest though, it's pretty hard to pick up on in its current form.

I enjoyed JTA, but I honestly remember nothing of the themed parts. The one in Orlando is much better. For some reason I thought they were identical down to the theming. Am I wrong, or was it just poorly maintained on the SD one?

I went last Summer and rode it. Yeah, it did look like it need some maintanince/refreshing. It really needs it in the elevator scene. Man, those screen look dated.

Indeed, it was really bad right before it went down for rehab in January.

Journey to Atlantis officially re-opened today, did anyone go today, and if so, were there any major changes to the multimedia?

SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment today announced it will premiere “Madagascar Live! Operation: Vacation,” an original live musical show featuring the characters from DreamWorks Animation SKG, Inc.’s (Nasdaq: DWA) beloved Madagascar franchise, at two of the company’s parks this summer.
Celebrating the box office success of Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted, which has grossed more than $740 million at the worldwide box office, Alex the Lion and friends will party while on vacation with guests at Busch Gardens� and SeaWorld� throughout 2013.

The 20-minute musical show follows the antics of Alex the Lion, Gloria the Hippo, King Julien, Mort and the Penguins during a vacation adventure. The show will feature rock/pop music performed by a live band and include both classic and original songs. The characters also will conduct meet and greets with park guests. Additionally, special co-branded merchandise exclusive to the parks, will be available.
These two locations will be the only theme parks in the U.S. where fans can see the characters of Madagascar live. The new show “Madagascar Live! Operation: Vacation” premieres in the following locations:
• Busch Gardens Tampa May 18, 2013.
• SeaWorld San Diego June 15, 2013.
The company also has the opportunity to expand the show to other parks in the SeaWorld family in the future.
“Audiences around the world have embraced the characters of Madagascar, and SeaWorld and Busch Gardens parks are the ideal places for families to enjoy this immersive live entertainment experience,” said DreamWorks Animation’s Head of Worldwide Licensing & Consumer Products, Kerry Phelan. “The entire creative team behind this uniquely original version of “Madagascar Live!” has done an impressive job of translating the beloved world from screen to stage, bringing it to life for young park guests and family audiences alike.”
“Our parks both entertain and inspire guests to care about animals,” said Scott Helmstedter, Chief Creative Officer of SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment. “Likewise, the Madagascar movies also inspire animal lovers, but in a different way with their inimitable charm and humor. We welcome these characters to our family with open arms and look forward to working with DreamWorks Animation on this incredibly funny and engaging new show.”
Madagascar is one of the most successful CG animated movie franchises of all time, grossing more than $1.8 billion at the worldwide box office. In 2012 “Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted,” grossed over $740 million at the global box office, becoming the highest grossing film of the series.
