SeaWorld Rebrands Its Last Shamu-Themed Attraction

SeaWorld has taken its final steps in distancing itself from Shamu, and the accompanying legacy of animals in captivity; earlier this year, it was announced that the water-centric theme park has rebranded its last remaining Shamu-themed attraction. 

The Shamu Express — a whale-themed roller coaster found at SeaWorlds San Antonio and Orlando — has been rebranded as Super Grover Box Car Derby, Orlando Weekly reported. The change comes as part of a Sesame Street attraction currently being built in the Orlando park, while San Antonio has long had a Sesame Street theme in the area around the former Shamu Express. In fact, it has long been speculated that SeaWorld will soon become a Sesame Place entirely.
