Update: At the end of this blog don't miss seeing many negative comments I've found on Yelp about this attraction. And see the amount Trip Advisor has.
Welcome to my blog on the original Marineland of Florida. A lot of people are not aware of the history and story of the first marinelife park created in the world. An interesting one it is. Marineland of Florida was created by W. Douglas Burton, Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney, Sherman Pratt, and llya Tolsen. Their concept was to have a place to film marine life. What they did was build a very special place. These four people were visionaries who created a great place which opened in 1938. They probably had no idea how amazing it would become. Many believe dolphins and marine life were not the intent of the park, but they did finally arrive later. The first film shot here was 'Revenge of the Creature' in 1955. Also the TV series 'Sea Hunt' starring Lloyd Bridges was filmed here from 1958-1961.
I welcome and publish all comments pro and con on the park. I believe that everyone has the right and freedom to express their opinions. Thanks for seeing here.
