    Madagascar LIVE coming to SeaWorld San Diego and potentially other SeaWorld Parks

    SeaWorld Parks and Resorts announced that Madagascar LIVE was coming to SeaWorld San Diego

    SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment today announced it will premiere “Madagascar Live! Operation: Vacation,” an original live musical show featuring the characters from DreamWorks Animation SKG, Inc.’s (Nasdaq: DWA) beloved Madagascar franchise, at two of the company’s parks this summer.Celebrating the box office success of Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted, which has grossed more than $740 million at the worldwide box office, Alex the Lion and friends will party while on vacation with guests at Busch Gardens Tampa and SeaWorld throughout 2013.
    The 20-minute musical show follows the antics of Alex the Lion, Gloria the Hippo, King Julien, Mort and the Penguins during a vacation adventure. The show will feature rock/pop music performed by a live band and include both classic and original songs. The characters also will conduct meet and greets with park guests. Additionally, special co-branded merchandise exclusive to the parks, will be available.
    These two locations will be the only theme parks in the U.S. where fans can see the characters ofMadagascar live. The new show “Madagascar Live! Operation: Vacation” premieres in the following locations:


    The company also has the opportunity to expand the show to other parks in the SeaWorld family in the future. Madagascar is one of the most successful CG animated movie franchises of all time, grossing more than $1.8 billion at the worldwide box office. In 2012 “Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted,” grossed over $740 million at the global box office, becoming the highest grossing film of the series.

    From the sound of the text it seems that the Madagascar Characters (which left Universal Orlando) will be calling the SeaWorld Parks and Resort home!

    Well Universal Orlando only had them in a meet and greet location near Kidzone which they got rid of over a year ago.

    I had been wondering where they went, and now we know... they went to Busch Gardens lol

    I will miss this show by a few months in SeaWorld S.D. I'll have to come back to catch it.

    That sounds good, can't wait to see the show
    The new Star Wars plot summery:

    Episode 7: Luke discovers that Darth Vader is not his father, and goes on a search for his real father

    Episode 8: Darth Vader is resurrected and goes on Jerry Springer, claiming he is Luke and Leia's father

    Episode 9: Princes Leia is not Luke's sister, making him furious (we all know why...).

    I can tell you that the new Madagascar show at BGT will be going into the old open air Stanleyville Theater. They're enclosing the theater and adding airconditioning. I also hope they're adding comfortable seats as the wooden, bench style seats weren't that comfortable.
    Current coaster count: 155
    100th coaster: Phantom's Revenge at Kennywood
    150th coaster: Intimidator at Carowinds
    last new park addition: Fun Spot America
