Unfortunately, during the last 4-5 years that's becoming the new normal for that entire swath of the country in late August/Sept./early October as long as those ocean waters keep heating up. Bad cycle we're in.
Suing a dude who left because you pissed him off is not really a good look regardless of who he works for now. I would rather them spend the money on improvements to the parks. I'm just not sure that the sea world chain actually values people since blackstone bailed on investing. Carl will do well at Herschend.
If these people leaving are what is creating a friendlier environment, new experiences, and an overall better guest experience that I had last month well then I say good riddance. I know I don’t have all the backstories but from what I experienced at San Diego compared to a couple years ago the park was in a much better state even with the mass exodus in upper leadership we’ve seen the last year or so.
