Delays at SeaWorld’s $50 million theme park upgrade will enter a second year after the park postponed the opening for the third time due to shipping delays.
The New Atlantis was set to feature two new attractions, including the Leviathan and the Trident.
The new attractions were originally due to launch in ‘mid-2021’, however was pushed back due to unavoidable transport problems caused by the pandemic.
Village Roadshow Theme Parks communications boss Mitchell Olivey said shipping delays due to Covid-19 was the main factor to why it was pushed back.
“Our domestic team and international partners were severely impact by shipping delays that have changed our delivery timeline for the Leviathan and Trident attractions at the New Atlantis precinct at Sea World,” he said.
Mr Olivey said the new opening date was September 3 for both of the attractions.
“This new timeline will also allow our team to add additional improved thematic elements to the precinct which will be a truly world-class experience for guests at Sea World.”
Fans hearing about the delay have expressed their disappointment online.
“I got passes last year so the kids could go in this Xmas. Some delay is OK till Easter but passes will have expired by then,” Sean Delaney wrote.
