SeaWorld Inventor Joins That Theme Park in the Sky
A moment’s silence please for the inventor of water parks, who has just died . I wouldn’t normally trouble you with this but I’m taking my godson and his shark-obsessed brother to SeaWorld in Jakarta tomorrow, so it’s one of those spooky coincidences you ignore at your peril.
George Millay, invented SeaWorld in 1964 as an “underwater zoo”. He later invented the water park, Wet n’ Wild. In 2004 the World Waterpark Association gave him their first ever Lifetime Achievement Award and named him the official “Father of the Waterpark.”
I’ll give ol’ George a moment’s silence while I’m trying to stop Harry from jumping in the shark pool.
