Really cool stuff! I do like trackless systems and really like the ride vehicles. I can't wait to see what other 'extras' they put in.

SeaWorld Orlando has also sent us a press release regarding their first mobile game, Turtle Trek.

SeaWorld® announced today the company’s first mobile game, Turtle Trek™ now available from the App Store℠.

Turtle Trek is a free game download for the iPhone and iPad. Players guide an adventuresome sea turtle on a quest across the beach and into the water to find friends. They help the plucky sea turtle navigate through the perilous seascape and conquer a variety of challenges, some dangerous and some light-hearted.

With help from friendly characters such as Shamu the killer whale and Nyah the green sea turtle, players collect treasures and fill virtual sticker books with an array of ocean friends met during their trek. SeaWorld engaged Sleepy Giant through its Flying Grom label to create the new game.

Turtle Trek provides hours of fun and immersive action, and also offers an educational benefit by sharing fun facts about real sea animals. Players encounter dozens of sea creatures but when they meet a special “Ocean Friend,” they gain a collectible virtual sticker for their Trek Book. At the touch of a finger, this virtual sticker opens to reveal interesting facts and photos about the actual ocean animal that the character resembles. These facts are kept easily accessible and can be shared with family and friends.

The game’s name and theme reflect the newest attraction at SeaWorld Orlando that opened this past April. The attraction blends up-close encounters with live sea turtles and manatees with the world’s first 3D, 360 degree domed theater. In this attraction, guests get a turtle’s eye view of the world as they are surrounded on all sides – and even above – by the hyper-realistic 3D film that is journey of a special sea turtle named Nyah.

Since 2011, SeaWorld has recently begun expanding its popular brand into new media and entertainment platforms such as mobile games, movies, television and new lines of licensed consumer products.

“SeaWorld has a 50-year history of creating entertainment experiences that inspire people to connect with animals, and this type of entertainment is a natural extension for our company,” said Scott Helmstedter, Chief Creative Officer of SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment. “It is engaging and fun, but also instills a greater understanding of some of the ocean’s amazing animals.”

The game is the first to be offered under the new partnership between SeaWorld and Sleepy Giant. Sleepy Giant’s Flying Grom label is focused on working with brands to create compelling, family-oriented interactive experiences.

“We are thrilled to be working with SeaWorld, an exceptional brand and partner. SeaWorld has a rich history of providing entertainment, education, and conservation in everything they do, and ‘Turtle Trek’ extends that tradition with fun and learning,” said Matt Hannus, CEO of Sleepy Giant.

While Turtle Trek offers a free opportunity to download and play, additional purchasable content is available. A portion of proceeds from the purchasable content will be donated directly to the SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund.

The Bands, Brew & BBQ Festival was such a nice preview to the Klassy Kruze this past year! They did have some really amazing food. I would have liked more BBQ stands, of course, but still pretty good food.

Oh great, I hope nothing comes of this, but since no one follows directions Sea World will probably be forced to do something :(

www.wric.com/story/20243200/young-girl-bitten-while-feeding-dolphin-at-seaworld

ALPHARETTA, Ga. (AP) -- The family of an 8-year-old Georgia girl says she suffered minor injuries after a dolphin bit her hand at SeaWorld in Orlando, Fla.

WSB-TV reports young Jillian Thomas of Alpharetta was feeding fish to the dolphin as part of a SeaWorld attraction and got bitten when she held up the paper fish container to where the dolphin could grab it. That's something SeaWorld warns guests not to do.

Jillian says she feared the dolphin would "eat my hand off." Instead she suffered three small punctures.

Her father, Jamie Thomas, has posted video of the Nov. 21 incident on the website YouTube. He says he wants parents to know feeding dolphins can be risky.

SeaWorld says it hasn't reviewed the video but is committed to the safety of its guests.

Hopefully, since she did something that SeaWorld warned against, the family can't sue them for "damages". :roll:

Edit: That video was hilarious. :lmao:

Meh, they showed the video like 17 times today on the news. Didn't look like a big deal at all. The dolphin was smarter than the kid!

^Dolphins are smarter than most humans. Then again, moldy pudding is smarter than most humans.

I'm pretty sure the dolphin was not going to bite her hand off. Unless it's some sort of mutant dolphin that's biding its time until it unleashes its fury upon the Earth. Hmm, this sounds like an amazing SyFy Channel original...
