SeaWorld announces quarterly earnings, attendance up as park continues to recover
SeaWorld (SEAS) announced their quarterly earnings this morning and announced that attendance is up for the first quarter of 2015, but a long road remains to recover from negative publicity generated over the last few years.
SeaWorld did not get into attendance details but did mention that it was up overall at their parks.
The park was suppose to announce details for their international parks but nothing was mentioned.
“We’re in a very first pitch of a long game and we don’t know how many innings it will take to help with our reputation,” SeaWorld’s new Chief Executive Officer Joel Manby said. “We’re committed though. We will be targeted and we will do what we need to do over the long term to improve our reputation.”
SeaWorld reported a net loss of $43.6 million in the first quarter and generated $214.6 million in revenue, which is up 1% compared to the same quarter last year.
SeaWorld plans on announcing new details about a record-breaking roller coaster coming to their Orlando park later this month.
