SeaWorld Entertainment, Inc, today announced that their results for 2013 will come in as a record breaking year, pending final audits.  The preliminary figures are backed by record attendance at the chain's SeaWorld parks in the fourth quarter, when many popular holiday events take place.  Revenue for the year is expected to come in at $1.46 billion, which would be the most in the company's fifty year history.

"We are very pleased with our fourth quarter performance, particularly for the SeaWorld-branded parks in Orlando and San Diego, which helped us to achieve record revenue for the year," said Jim Atchison, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company.

SeaWorld also passed another milestone in late 2013 when its Stranded Animal Rehabilitation program passed 23,000 rescues - a testament to the company's goal of helping animals in need.

In 2014 the chain will celebrate the company's 50th Anniversary with a series of celebrations at all its parks, you can read more about the event at this link.  In addition to the SeaWorld branded parks, the company's portfolio also includes Busch Gardens Tampa, Busch Gardens Williamsburg, Sesame Place and several water parks.
