I went online to renew my annual pass to SeaWorld, and that’s when I saw that members can enter the park an hour before the park officially opens. For one purpose, and one purpose only: to ride Manta:
Manta opened this past Memorial Day weekend, which is when I rode it for the first time. But to get into the park before all the crowds, just to ride Manta, well, I couldn’t summarily dismiss that. So off I went to SeaWorld yesterday at 7:45 a.m.
Just one problem: Manta was broken. “Technical difficulties” and “No estimated time for resumption.”
Since I was already at SeaWorld, I thought I would go back to the car, get my handy dandy Canon 550D, and take a few pictures before leaving. That’s when I discovered that the flamingos were back.
Before half the park was dismantled to construct Manta, there was a huge lagoon with flamingos. Just before construction started, Shazam!, disappearing flamingos. Before they disappeared, they would go on a “flamingo walk” around the park. I’ve never been privileged to witness the flamingo walk, and I didn’t find out until after I got home that flamingo walk is back! Yeah! Yahoo! and Yippee!
I’m going back to SeaWorld on Friday just to see if I can get some pictures of the flamingo walk. Until then, you’ll just have to be satisfied with these pictures of the SeaWorld flamingos:
