I got a feeling that whoever they bring in.... Their main goal is to sell out. Or maybe Jim being booted was required to reach an agreement with someone?

They obviously don't have anyone in mind, because if they did they would be filling the position ASAP.

I'm sure layoffs will happen, but that's not what we, as guests, should be worried about. We should be worried about the cost cutting measures. Single train operation on coasters, anyone?

Since I really dont understand coaster operations.... How much would you save doing that? You still need the same amount of employees to run the coaster, no? So you just save on long term maintenance cost?

Yes, maintainence is the issue.  KD does the same thing on show days.  We've seen other rides reduce capacity because of budget as well.

Makes sense.

But i'm more worried about the possibility of having fewer gates open. The parking gate lines already suck, and then main entry can get extremely backed up as well. Imagine them now cutting back on employees in those places as well.... Or even only running one tram....

All those along with reduced food service and cleaning crew are possibilities, if we haven't seen them already. Which is why I said before that cutbacks are really rge worst thing to do for a theme park with ailing attendance.

I'm not sure. We've seen time and again that ent productions are typically massive despite the company ailing for years now. It looks like Scott gets a certain priority.

The Blackfish supporters are going crazy about Atchinson leaving. Check out these comments on Seaworld Orlando's Instragram page.
