SeaWorld Orlando is re-introducing its ticket deal that allows admission on one weekday for $50.

The offer lasts through May 5, 2014. It must be used by that date as well. U.S. residents can purchase the $50 deal at SeaWorldOrlando.com or by calling 888-800-5447. A similar deal is available at SeaWorld's sister park, Busch Gardens in Tampa (BuschGardens.com).

SeaWorld's previous $50 weekday deal started last August and extended into December. This version will include key spring break dates and the beginning of SeaWorld's 50th anniversary celebration, which begins March 21.

Bruce Hall of REO Speedwagon recently visited SeaWorld Orlando to see firsthand what the SeaWorld parks really are like, and it appears he has had a change of heart!

Had the opportunity today to take a tour of the facilities at Sea World and saw the truth first hand about this wonderful park. For the record, I never wanted to cancel our show here. So glad that my good friend, Larry The Cable Guy, was able to pick up the gig and I was happy to be there and support him.

Good to see Bruce speak up for the park! Here lives here in Orlando and his family works at some of the local parks.

So happy to read this post. I really hope the others who cancelled will consider doing the same and see the real truth.

http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/local/breakingnews/os-seaworld-blackfish-osha-complaint-20140227,0,6916706.story

SeaWorld Entertainment Inc. on Thursday filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Labor, asking the agency to examine the conduct of an investigator who led the probe into SeaWorld's safety practices following the death of an Orlando trainer killed by a park killer whale in 2010.

In a complaint lodged with the Labor Department's Office of the Inspector General, SeaWorld accused U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration investigator Lara Padgett of leaking confidential company documents to the makers of "Blackfish," the controversial documentary that is sharply critical of SeaWorld and killer-whale captivity.

SeaWorld alleges Padgett shared materials with "Blackfish" producers that she obtained while investigating the Feb. 24, 2010, death of Dawn Brancheau, who was battered and drowned by the six-ton orca "Tilikum."

That investigation led OSHA to charge SeaWorld with "willful" safety violations — its most severe classification — and to recommend that SeaWorld trainers never again be allowed to perform in close, unprotected contact with the giant marine predators. SeaWorld has appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C.

Brancheau's death is also the subject of "Blackfish," which contends that abuses in captivity may have led Tilikum to lash out violently against his trainer.

Blackfish Associate Producer Tim Zimmermann has said Padgett did not provide the filmmakers with any records or other assistance. "In fact, we repeatedly tried to secure interviews with her, her OSHA supervisor, Les Grove, and OSHA attorney John Black, and were refused each and every time," Zimmermann said in January.

SeaWorld also accused Padgett of ethical lapses for socializing with the cast and crew of "Blackfish." Photos surfaced last month of Padgett posing with various "Blackfish" personnel at several movie premieres, including its global premiere in January 2013 at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah.

Padgett has declined to comment on the controversy.

^^She's going to have a few problems explaining why she was so "social" with the Blackfish producers.

Yeah, and being all cozy with her at Sundance was just a coincidence. What a moron. Glad Sea World is fighting back.
