Sean: We swung by SeaWorld Orlando today for some rides and food. There are quite some changes to Sesame Street since our last visit 6 days ago, as well as Journey to Atlantis, which is currently closed for a refurbishment. Let’s take a look.
– In the past, many of our images have been posted, featured, and shared on forums, social media platforms and websites around the web. We work hard to provide the coverage that we do, and we encourage our audience to share our content and use our images, BUT ONLY IF proper credit is given to thecoasterkings.com. Thank you! –
Let’s start with the new Sesame Street area immediately! The former Shamu Express has seen a fresh repaint this week for its Super Grover’s Box Car Derby relaunch. The new dark blue supports and bright pink track looks beautiful.
The nice thing about the infrastructure for Sesame Street is that it already looks to be much more official and temporary than Shamu’s Happy Harbor. The new buildings are several stories tall to immerse guests into the Sesame Street realm.
On the opposite side of the park Journey to Atlantis is undergoing an annual maintenance refurbishment. The flume is drained and cables are hanging off the main drop. Kind of strange not hearing the recent upbeat Atlantis music.
In one of its recent rehabs the roof over the main drop has been replaced, the one over the lift however could use a refurbishment. Hopefully that’s in store with this refurbishment. At this time no reopening date has been announced.
