SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment Unveil Ride Vehicles at IAAPA 2016


On day 1 of the IAAPA trade-show, SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment gave us 3 new things to see. First up Joel talked about all the initiatives of the company and exciting things ahead!


Over at the chance rides booth we saw the Submarine Quest ride vehicle and learned of some of the features; including an interactive touch screen that adapts to the player so that children and adults alike can have a fun educational experience whilst riding.
