Just a quick update: the new Flamecraft Bar is now open! (It does look rather nice with great lake views.)
The bar is located in the Waterfront area of SeaWorld inbetween the new Dolphin Nursery and the Sky Tower (which has seen its reliability improve dramatically in recent weeks)
Over at Infinity Falls, ground clearing has nearly been completed, foundation work has commenced and vertical construction is likely not too far away!
It also seems increasingly likely that Orca Encounter will be opening in 2018 at SeaWorld Orlando rather than in 2019 as was previously thought. It seems its success in San Diego has convinced SeaWorld to accelerate the presentation's roll out in Florida. This means that 2017 will probably be the last year of the popular "One Ocean" theatrical Shamu show.
