Well, being a San Diego County resident, this is a big deal. I'm not a water park person, though having Sea World own the park is MUCH better than Cedar Fair. I always thought that an Aquatica needed to open up in SD and this is great. I hear improvements coming.

This was a big shocker to me. I did not see this coming. Anyway, this is amazing! Aquatica at every Sea World park now!

This is really good move for the Sea World Sand Diego. The San Diego Soak City is I agree the best one in the chain and I can't wait to see how Sea World will improve it. I especially look forward to the new animal attractions.

Does anyone know who owns the plots of land right next to the water park and across the street from the amphitheater? This acquisition could be just the first step in Seaworld/Busch having a much larger presence in SoCal!

Future Discovery Cove or Busch Gardens Park?

This is a genius move on the part of SeaWorld. I can only see good things coming from this purchase.

I'm glad Sea World is expanding their offerings in San Diego, and they barely had to lift a finger to due so. Now if only they would build a Busch Gardens in SD themed to Asia (I doubt that would ever happen though).
