Theme park report reveals SeaWorld visitor decline

SeaWorld saw a significant drop in its visitor numbers in 2014, according to a new industry report released today.

The highly-respected annual TEA/AECOM 2014 Theme Index and Museum Index report reveals that SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment saw its visitor numbers drop by 4.3% or 1 million visitors. In North America, its parks in Orlando, Florida and San Diego, California, saw numbers down 8% and 12% respectively.

While its competitors have been opening new attractions, SeaWorld continues to struggle with the negative publicity resulting from the documentary film Blackfish and its ongoing display of orcas in captivity.
