An exciting expansion, described as "one of the largest single capital investments in the park's 27-year history," will being work this Spring at SeaWorld San Antonio.
A favorite part of guests' visits to the theme park has long been seeing the dolphins in their pool, and the park has decided to greatly improve this experience with a "revolutionary new area" for the friendly mammals.
As described by the park, "the habitat will be dramatically transformed into two new ways to experience dolphins. First, SeaWorld guests will finally be able to go beneath the water’s surface to see dolphins swimming and playing underwater. Large viewing panes for underwater viewing will allow guests to see how these magnificent creatures swim, interact and play from an entirely new vantage point. But the most dramatic change to this area is the introduction of a new facility that will allow guests to swim with dolphins in a naturalistic environment.
The new dolphin swim addition will be similar to what is offered at Discovery Cove, allowing guests to make paid reservations for the experience.
Guests six years and up will be able to partake, starting with learning "about dolphin behavior and communication, along with SeaWorld's dolphin and research and rescue efforts. After their classroom presentation and discussion on dolphins' natural history and physiology, guests will wade into shallow water and become acquainted with one of these fascinating, intelligent dolphins through close contact during this one-on-one dolphin encounter. Then, taking the adventure one step further, guests can interact with their dolphin in deeper water for an exciting dorsal fin two ride back to shore."
While this addition won't come online until 2016, 2015 still holds plenty new for SeaWorld San Antonio.
