"On the Entertainment side of things so far, it has been confirmed to me that SeaWorld Orlando did layoff all three of their Mimes, popular long-time entertainment characters, and that Scott Swenson, Creative Director and the mouthpiece of Busch Gardens Tampa’s popular Howl-O-Scream event, was also let go which does not bode well for the future of Howl-O-Scream." - VIA Screamscape

This is truly one of the most difficult layoffs for me to grasp. Scott Swenson was creative and passionate about his job, and was a great guy to talk to. That is increasingly rare in the park industry for people in high positions to be so outgoing and friendly. My hope is that they will jump to get him back by Summer of 2015. Sadly, I don't think that even the park sees much of a near future if they are this bad off. And of course, best of luck to him.
