  • Marineland Makes Way for Resort

    The final buildings of Marineland in Palos Verdes are being torn down. L.A. Times 07/21/06: http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la...=la-home-local

    Some pics (after it closed) can be seen at www.themeparkmemories.com.
    "And yes, we implore EVERYBODY to follow the park rules. Having off-ride footage is great, but any still photo's or video's taken ON the coasters at SFMM are strictly against the rules. They are there for your (and everybody's) safety." "Six Flags doesn't allow ANY loose articles on their coasters, and they don't allow video taping on their coasters. " BUT, "​ This is not true. Six Flags does not allow ANY On-Ride video or pictures on the rides. The ONLY way is if you get explicit permission from Park Management." ???

    That's so funny, a bunch of us were talking about Marineland the other day and why it hasn't been made into anything else yet.

    Guess we have our answer.

      I live about half a mile away from old marineland, I love exploring around there. My dad used to feed the fish there when he was a teen

        Very sad. I loved that place. I still remember some of the shows. Wish it was Sea World that closed instead.

          I hate it when they tear down something nostalgic for some yuppy resort. Owell guess its going to waste as it sits now anyway.

          Im bored, lets go to Disneyland.

            as someone who has never been to Marineland I'd like to hear why you have that wish?

              I only went to Marineland once when I was a kid. I snorkled for the first time there. That's all I really remember about it, though.

              We used to photograph weddings at the Catalina Room until it closed last May to make room for the new resort. It was right next to the old Marineland site. It's been sitting for so long, I'm surprised it's taken this long to get construction going. It was funny to look out during a wedding & see the wild goats on top of the old tanks, though.

                ^the baja reef was totally cool, you could swim in that reef with all those fish, I thought it was the coolest thing when I was a teenager.

                    I've been there. I have lots of pictures. I just may have to do some scanning.

                          this was back when the were catching them in the wild, which is also cruel. Maybe they felt it was safert o work around the whales with ground down teeth.....who knows.
