No confirmation yet but I'm hearing that Beluga Whale Crissy's calf (born in September) is male and has been named Innick!

Also, the park have confirmed that marine scientist and artist Dr Guy Harvey will be opening the park for the 2018 season with a 2 day event on February 24 & 25.

Construction has begun on a large new project at the park for 2020 in the area between Orca Stadium & the Rio Loco rapids ride. Just opposite the new Turtle Reef expansion opening next month.

It is rumoured to be a large wooden coaster from GCI. We will see!

Aquatica San Antonio recently opened up their new multi drop slide attraction Ihu's Breakaway Falls as well.

As I alluded to, Turtle Reef is due to open next month. The attraction includes a new Sea Turtle habitat as well as two new family thrill flat rides: Sea Swinger and Riptide Rescue!

From PR Newswire:

"Ocean pollution, oil spills and habitat degradation are some of the biggest challenges facing sea turtles, and Turtle Reef provides an immersive opportunity for guests to learn how they can help the species," said SeaWorld and Aquatica San Antonio park president Carl Lum. "We are excited to showcase a species that has never been featured before at SeaWorld San Antonio, while educating guests about our mission to protect animals and habitats worldwide."

Here's a great overview video of the new expansion: https://youtu.be/GZ0ZGgbVDFU
