Hello again here's a photo from Sea World with a Tiki in the background, it looks to me like it could be at the Hawaiian Punch Village, the railing behind her seems to look like other pictures I've seen of it. The glass contains something vaguely tropical looking, unfortunately the drink doesn't resemble anything I have in my archives and it seems strange (to me) that they would use actual glassware, or maybe it's plastic and I'm not seeing that? Aside from all that it is painfully lacking in any other kind of detail except the bag which has their colors and the Shamu logo.




Enjoy

Bosko

Hey DC great photo as always, funny how they had to make things so obvious back then.

Wow Unga thanks that was painfully short what a bunch of teases, did they have the Luau show in San Diego or was this video from the Florida location? The 86 brochure makes no mention of it but who knows, I also just noticed that by 1986 the Hawaiian Punch Village had been cleverly renamed AL E. GATOR'S RESTAURANT AND COCKTAIL LOUNGE (so that may explain my drink question) obviously the devolution of Tiki was right on track at Sea World.

It was just a link.

Great Sea World memories!

I recently picked up some new materials from Sea World in San Diego.

A postcard view of the dolphin show and the Hawaiian Punch Village in the background.

Sea World has a large reproduction of that Tiki posted on its historical walkway.

This thread brought back a lot of memories- of the Sea World at Geauga Lake/Aurora in Ohio. I believe they also had an Hawai'ian themed area with Tikis and a Hula show- my visits would have been back in the early 70's.

We also had the Pearl divers, a japanese pavillion of some kind, and an outstanding waterski show- but hey, I was small back then...maybe it wasn't as amazing as I remember.

In any case- this may also be another root of Ohio Tiki heritage. After all- Hula and Cleveland- two words you cewrtainly don't automaticly associate.



Sabina, they did have a Tiki area, a Hawaiian Punch Village just like the San Diego location -- and it was an OA install!



We'd love to see photos of this and the Tiki Gift Shop. Both of us went here as kids, and we recently found our family's Super8 footage of Sea Worlds visits. We got them scanned and only hope our parents had tiki radar, too ... I guess we'll find out as soon as we watch them!

We recently picked up these large benches and giant clam shells from Sea World:
