Kevin stops by the studio in this extended episode where the guys discuss SeaWorld, Busch Gardens, and all the other summer events happening around town. Food, random news, and a surprise phone call keep it interesting.
Ken and Ed sit down to do a quick run-through of all the latest news and rumors. Lots of talk about Disney World and what to expect over the next few years. Ken gets emotional over fireworks and Ed asks why Ripley’s has so much land they own in the tourist district.
In this first episode of the SEAS News Wire Brent, Jim, Andy and Ken cover all the news from SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment including the latest from Cobra’s Curse, Mako, the Seven Seas Food Festival, Abby’s Magic Weekends and more.
Today we have interviews with Wanda Group (they talk about building new parks, Disney as competition and the struggles of the industry in Asia right now), Goddard Group (they talk about the Cirque park in Mexico and the future of the industry) and ProSlide (they talk about their 2016 projects, new tech that might soon be in Orlando and the evolution of water slides). Plus we have Kevin Yee review the VR Coaster demonstration that’s currently at Fun Spot and Ed of Mickey Updates stops by to talk about what was happening on the IAAPA IAE15 floor today.
On today’s show we go way off topic when Robert from Mickey Updates joins us. It’s a packed show with hot takes, new insights and plenty of news regarding local tourism. During The Punch List Jay, Jake, Brian and Ken talk about the huge news coming out of Port Canaveral, what the tragedy in Seattle means for the future of duck tours, the odd move for Night of Joy, plus what a petition might’ve just helped bring back to WDW. It’s a big show but stick around for a big announcement at the end.
