SeaWorld Orlando has revealed that the theme park will operate only five days a week once it reopens on Thursday, June 11.
As reported by the Orlando Sentinel, SeaWorld will cap their attendance at around one-third of the park’s capacity and run on this modified schedule to give employees more time to clean.
These capacity measures are in addition to the recently-announced guest reservations that will be required along with admission in order to visit. When we looked at the park’s reservation calendar, we were unable to make any reservations to visit the park on Tuesdays or Thursdays.
Interim CEO Marc Swanson has said that they are “working in exploring” the return of popular events like the Seven Seas Food Festival. As for the opening of the park’s new coaster, Ice Breaker, Swanson had nothing new to share.
Looking toward the park’s reopening, Swanson shared with the Sentinel that the decision to potentially lay off employees will depend on how many visitors return to the park. SeaWorld temporarily furloughed 90 percent of its workforce back on April 1.
SeaWorld Orlando reopens to all guests on June 11. To learn more, visit SeaWorld.com/Orlando.
