SeaWorld takes a massive hit at Orlando’s theme park giant


It’s no secret that Universal likes to throw shade on its Twitter accounts, mostly towards Disney parks, and they often do so over sweet, sugary churros.

Surprisingly, SeaWorld has joined the churro debate on Twitter the past few days by sharing the following announcement.

You know what’s better than a churros stand? A beautiful landscaping project.

Nothing to see here

Fans were quick to react, saying they were excited to see what the new project could bring to the park. User SeaWorld Work Orders (@SWneedshelp) shared the following comment, mentioning current attractions at various Sea World locations:

A landscaping project? Does this mean more trees, shrubs, and other new plants for the areas surrounding Pantheon, Emperor, Ice Breaker, and Texas Stingray? ! I’m so excited!

However, not all users shared this sentiment, and many expressed their opinion, with most suggesting that SeaWorld has a lot of work to do if they are to catch up with their competitors. Joseph (@whoisjseph), for example, tweeted:

Yeah, this is @SeaWorld we’re talking about here, so it’s probably going to be another ugly, unthemed steel roller coaster dumped in one of their parks that are already half-filled or abandoned projects. My God, I miss the pre-Blackfish @SeaWorld.

Every day it becomes more and more common for different theme parks to use their social media in this way, and while they may not always get the response they expect, it will still be fun to see discussion they can create.

Ice Breaker is the newest coaster built at SeaWorld Orlando; its bright colors attract guests and fill a hole in the park, which previously did no favors. Ice Breaker was announced to be built in 2019, but due to the pandemic, the roller coaster’s opening date was severely pushed back. The $8.2 million attraction ascends and descends 93 feet and reaches a speed of 52 miles per hour. While these stats don’t really give off the “creepy” vibe, the coaster packs a lot more punch than it looks.
