Founded in 1958, this park was originally known as the
Surfers Paradise Ski Gardens. It took the name Sea World in 1972 when
it added dolphins, marine displays and a swimming pool. A decade later, it
further expanded by purchasing a competitor marine park, Marineland. Just
one coaster has left the park: Wild Wave Rollercoaster, also called
Thrillseeker, was an SDC Zyklon that ran from 1982 to 2002.
