    Re: Happy 43rd Anniversary to SeaWorld San Diego

    SeaWorld has always been a phenomenal park...even before Busch aquired it. I remember ridig the sky tram to the atlantis restaurant, and taking a cruise on a hydrofoil boat. Can't wait to ride the Journey To atlantis flume coaster in the future.

    We owe SeaWorld a debt of gratitude for bringing to the world a new appreciation for ocean life. I believe this goes hand in hand with an instilled desire to want to protect the wonderous creatures of the sea.

    Kudos to you Darkbeer for this thread.
