The park had amazing expansively landscaped and well manicured lawns. Also there were always lots of flamingos at the front entrance.
Being a theme park there were costumed mascots. I forget the name of the Walrus but the costume is very cute. The nose is amazing and I like the touch that he is dressed in an Admiral's uniform.
The holy grail of images for Sea World is the Hawaiian Punch Village. This was Sea World's Tahitian Terrace with great tikis and Hawaiian decor along with good food and non-alcoholic fruit drinks. I believe most of the poles and the shields were purchased from Oceanic Arts.
Of course all of this is gone now and the park has lost its theming and many of the animal shows. This post is dedicated to Chris who is a major Sea World fan.
